QTVOTD: Faith is watching God work when everything is going crazy around you…

“…For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20b ->me: Wow, I needed this today.  There are events that have transpired over the last 24 hours that call on us for the kind of faith Jesus talks about here.  I will go more into detail on that, in a different post, but we need to lean on God with a great faith.  We are literally watching the hand of God move in several areas of our lives.  He is doing something big, not just in Marianne and I, but in the lives of our girls as well.  In this passage, the Lord is letting me know that even though what is happening is wrought with craziness from an earthly point of view, He has everything in control.  So, my prayer becomes one of strength, endurance, wisdom, and peace.  Work is crazy stressful, personal life is transforming by the minute, church life is possibly taking on a new commitment, and our girls start school in 1 week…but God.  That is all I need to say…but God.  But God has my life in His hands and He is in control.  He will provide me what I need each day.  This morning, like every morning, His grace is new.  We are good because we are IN Him and He is IN us.  Would partner with me in praying for our family; that we would not let our human nature get in the way by trying to fix…that we would just sit back in peace and watch God word and provide.
