God-fidence Part 1

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. ~ Hebrews 11:1 NLT

Questions flood my mind
What next? Where to? Why now? How come?
Questions without answers
Questions that produce more questions
Questions that plague
Questions that haunt

Faith trusts even in the midst of the unknown
Faith rests, knowing that all is well
Faith endures in the midst of anguish
Faith secures my hope in Christ

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
"Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?"
"Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay him?"
For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen. (Romans 11:33-36)

(Part 2 will be posted tomorrow)

Isn't it true how questions arise as soon as we think about faith? But, God's Word comforts the mind that runs rampant. Loved your post today!
