I have had so many thoughts floating in my head today about faith and overcoming. I know that God is calling us up to new levels of faith in Him. I feel that God is putting people on fast-tracks of faith. Where some believers have been studying the Bible and learning about God for 30 or 40 years, God is putting people on a “fast track”…teaching them Himself.
I have also learned that every obstacle that we encounter in this life is a test to see how we will overcome. With each obstacle that we pass, we gain levels of strength and levels of faith that we can overcome that obstacle. Picture life as an actual obstacle course with climbs, jumps, and things to struggle with. As we achieve each level the next level gets a little harder. But as we achieve them, we have faith that we can do it again. There are many things that happen in life which are painful and not fair. But, these obstacles that we face are the catapults that can throw us into God’s loving arms as we cry out and reach out to Him. He wants us to overcome. He is calling us to higher levels of faith to trust Him that He can do anything… He wants us to expect the unexpected and believe in the miraculous again…
Remember Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
