Heat and Humidity soar. School is rolling back around again. And the world turns, tumultuously at best. But, it’s still turning.
In these days of craziness, bad news and impending doom surround us at every turn.
Anxiety threatens to define us.
Romans talks about how we should live. We, the just. Those made right by accepting Christ’s righteousness as a covering for our muck. The just.
We live by faith.
The just shall live by faith.
That’s a loaded sentence isn’t it? Living by faith. What does that look like?
For us, it’s taken many shapes and forms this summer. We’ve left a traditional ministry experience to follow God to the next thing on this journey and it’s stretching.
Sometimes it’s confusing. Overwhelming.
A posture of the heart, bowed in faith. Relaxed into His grasp when everything about your flesh tells you to tense up and try harder. This is what faith has taught us this summer. To bow our anxious hearts in faith of who God is.
Life is hard. It’s unfair. Mean people get away with ugly things every day. It hurts. It affects other people. It’s a fallen world.
But, it’s our world. Our mission. Our soul cause until we see Jesus.
How’s your posture? Your heart posture?
Maybe it’s a moment by moment thing. Living by faith.
Start now. This moment I trust You. And the next. Still trusting.
My God. He’s Big Enough. Big enough to walk us through when the heat is on. Big enough to walk through with you too.
You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. Our God and Father abounds in glory that just pours out into eternity. Yes.
