Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 10.1.18

Scripture

For we walk by faith, not by sight

2 Corinthians 5:7

Reflection

It can be scary not knowing. The unknown leaves us wondering the “what-ifs” and contemplating the how, why, and where. We try to focus our sight to see if somehow our sheer determination will manifest something, anything—preferably, beneficial to us. The longer we go without sight of something familiar or welcoming, the more we begin to worry. That is a bad place to be.

That is a place and space where fear is dominating and faith is diminished or worse, not present.

It is the state of lack.

God wants us to rest and work confidently in a state of abundance, always seeing and embracing our blessings—and blessing others with our abundance and with our excess. God wants us to be grateful and express gratitude for what is yet to come, before we have it, for it is our declaration of our trust in Him.

God says, “walk” and we keep asking, “where?” and “why?” We want to see, when God just wants us to trust.

Walk.

Put one foot out in front of the other. God says to trust Him. We say that we will, once we see where we are going, once we know we have a strong foothold. God says that He is our foothold. We say, sometimes without saying aloud, “yes this is true but I would feel more confident in You if I could see You, just as I see others”.

I’ve done this, you have done this, we have all done this—one way or another. If you don’t agree, then explain to me why you don’t obey and step out on faith every single time He calls to you?

Let’s keep it real shall we?

You don’t have total faith in Him. You don’t trust Him 100 percent. If you did you would take the step and walk. We’re all guilty of it.

I’m most definitely guilty.

We want what we have never had yet we can’t trust the process. We want one million dollars or one billion dollars, even though we have never had it before, and our minds can conceive and visualize this as our reality—-yet we doubt God’s ability to provide or to provide on our timetable, yet He provides all things, even that million and billion dollars—and He provides all things at the right time, when He says that we are ready. Sadly, many of us receive our blessings “late” or never because of our lack of faith and obedience.

Prayer

Father thank You for equipping me with the strength, knowledge, wisdom, and belief in You to walk by faith—-that with and through You all is possible and nothing is impossible. I don’t need to wait to see my blessings, because I already know that everything is taken care of. Today I have faith that You have already handled all of my needs, concerns, issues, and problems. Thank You Father. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha
