Faith

I’m learning a little something about faith in my journey. I’m learning that my idea of faith (as a Western culture Christian) isn’t the same as the Bible teaches. My version tends to be more along the lines of asking God for something, doing the right things and then expecting God to give me the outcome I want. Experience is teaching me that it doesn’t work that way.

God makes it very clear that His ways and thoughts are above mine and that He is the One who determines the end from the beginning. Faith is accepting (not necessarily understanding, mind you) that God is in charge and that what He wants and does is what’s best, even when it something entirely different that what I wanted to begin with. I either follow because I believe He is God, the Savior of all creation, or I go my own way because I think I know what’s best. Not much of a choice after all, is it?
