I love the first part..
“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand”
When you don’t have FAITH… you limit God’s hand in your life!!
BOY, do I ever know this…and learn it daily… when my faith fails, then I FAIL GOD!!
But when I believe..the sky, the ground…THE OCEAN has NO LIMIT!!
This has been a prevailing theme in Dar’s and my lives together, in fact Hebrews 11:1 was our mantra for the Bookstore we had a couple of years ago. We stood on that.
But mostly in Romans 1:17, where it says, “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
I want to be righteous. I want to live by faith. Sometimes when you think, “Wow, is this really worth it?” or “What the heck am I doing?” and you’re broke, physically, mentally, and spiritually…and you think you don’t have anything left to give.
God breaks thru… shining the “Son” and says: “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you!” Romans 8:11
Yeah! And He said to Isaiah: “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
I’d say, we got all the tools we need when we trust, and faith…and BELIEVE in the God of Heaven and Earth. He who hath made us!!
A wise man once told me, that “if there is anything that breaks the heart of God is that when His children don’t believe in Him”
