In these modern-day times, it seems old-fashioned to believe in God. Christians are encouraged to make their faith as logical as possible to appeal more to the “enlightened” minds around them. I challenge you that a logical faith is a very boring one. The very word “supernatural” indicates that it is something beyond the norm. When you cannot explain it away, then it is clearly of God. So who will you listen to? The Voice of Reason, or the Voice of Truth?
The plagues of Egypt were not logical. Jericho’s walls crashing down were not natural. The sun standing still in the sky while Joshua and the Israelites did battle is not reasonable. Jesus pulling money out of a fish’s mouth is downright hilarious. The waters parting at the Red Sea is unexplainable. And yet ‘scientists’ try to do just that. What good is a God who cannot create the world? What is the point of a God who cannot obliterate his enemies in whatever way He might choose? So when you listen to that voice of reason, aren’t you actually stifling your own faith? And then you wonder why God does nothing.
The Bible doesn’t teach unconditional prayer. Unconditional love, yes, but not prayer. The Bible says ‘he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him’ and ‘But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.’
The Bible says that if we have the faith of a mustard seed, God will move mountains for us. So if God isn’t moving mountains for you, is it God’s fault? Do you think David was afraid to face Goliath? I absolutely do. You can be afraid in your human flesh without doubting God’s abilities and power. You can be afraid and still know that God is going to come through for you. God does not expect us to be un-human. He knows our struggles. But he does expect us to believe in Him and shut our ears to the voices not only around us, but inside our own heads, telling us to look at our circumstances. My God is not limited by any circumstances. One of the verses that helps me the most to put away circumstances from my mind is Psalms 3:6- ‘I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.’ Farther down in verse 8 it says ‘Salvation belongeth unto the LORD.’ The numbers don’t matter. With God “the odds are ever in your favor.”
How can you trust God to come through for you in the miraculous? By getting to know Him and developing a relationship of trust with Him now.
