We often begin our walk of faith by working and serving in areas where we can see both where we are and where we are going. If we step away from this spiritually for a moment we can see where the safety and predictability of these actions will accomplish many things that while useful, may not serve our purpose for God. This could leave us in a dangerous place of comparing our success and failure to others around us. It is a natural human instinct and sometimes based on our circumstances can be hard to move past. We often limit our Faith to what we can logically reason out and fit within our box of understanding. In other words, we want to see the path clearly from where we are to where we are going to end up. The writer of Hebrews helps us to understand that faith requires us to go into areas where even with a plan we do not know the path and yet hope in our faith takes us along the journey for God.
1:Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
If faith then, is a step for us where we give control to God then we become a living part of God’s purpose. The great, and scary, part of living out this purpose is that God has an expectation of us to do “our” best – not average, not compared to anyone else but our best for Him every day. God has no limit like we have in logic and reason, and Faith will often carry us into areas we cannot explain. We only pray and work to realize the unlimited potential a day brings and recognize that we bring the only limit to our faith in each day.
“Faith has no limit – The only limit to our realization of tomorrow is the doubt we hold onto from today.”
