True Faith

Description

Faith isn't an intellectual strain; it’s a spiritual flow. It certainly isn’t unreasonable, but it will take you beyond reason.

“Faith is believing what you know ain’t so,” wrote Mark Twain, who was good with humor but horribly misguided on at least this point. Faith may not imply absolute certainty at all times, but it’s still anchored in truth. It’s not a shot in the dark, a blind leap, or wishful thinking. It’s arriving at a worldview that makes beautiful sense in light of what God has done in the past and has promised in the future. It’s a lot more concrete than faithless people think it is.

Faith is not an intellectual strain. It’s a spiritual flow. It certainly isn’t unreasonable, but it will take you beyond reason. It isn’t imaginary, but it will certainly require you to envision. If you’re trying to figure everything out in life and nail it all down, you might have trouble with faith. But if you enter a conversation with God and view the world through his words, things begin to make sense. Faith comes. And grows.

Ultimately, faith is a gift from God for everyone willing to receive it (Ephesians 2:8). You can’t muster it up yourself, but you can ask for it, expect it, and then live in it. God fills hearts that long for him. He gives us new eyes to see. And when he does, faith is believing what you know is absolutely, unalterably true.
