let trust keep you going

by Pastor Mark Jordan

It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going.” (2 Corinthians 5:7, MSG)

“For we live by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7, NIV)

I recently had a refection about a life of faith. We want to see the results of the final product in order to proceed. This isn’t the way God works, though. We go to God and say, “Show me, and I’ll believe,” while God says, “Believe me, and I’ll show you.”

Yesterday I wrote about trusting God. Period. Today’s verse teaches that trust keeps you going, even when you can’t see the results. This reminds me of the famed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. quote, that faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.

In your life of trusting God, He will lead you into times and places where you can’t see all the results. Live by faith. Don’t be troubled…trust.

Prayer: Dear Lord, forgive me for the times I want to see the results before I believe you for the rest. I choose to trust instead of feeling troubled. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
