”… if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it…” [2 Kings 5:13]
We are not monuments or museums but living vessels, vibrant with the mystery of the Living Christ. For this reason the experience of our faith is fashioned to produce the highest quality.
The hottest furnaces, the fiercest storm, the driest desert, the smallest step, all reflect the glory of God in our lives…when we walk by faith. Its nature is known by its consistency in every circumstance and situation. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” [2 Corinthians 4:17]
The great American dream comes with crib pads—comfort zones—soft landings—until they wear thin and leave man banging around in a prison of his own making—but not the blessing of God! The blessing of God grows beyond the crib pads, it removes the comfort zones and grows into something others can benefit and be blessed by. Its cushion cannot be measured; its depths cannot be fathomed—and is available to everyone who touches our lives. ”…and I will bless you…and you will be a blessing…and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” [Genesis 12:2-3] this is the essence of Abraham faith—undiluted it is as powerful and potent today as it was when God spoke it.
Wherever you are on your journey Christ is with you—“When Jesus takes your hand, He keeps you tight. When Jesus keeps you tight, He leads you through your whole life. When Jesus leads you through your life, He brings you safely home.” ~ Corrie ten Boom.
