A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD

We Pray…

There are times when life doesn’t make any sense, when it seems as if the good die before their time, when it seems as if those who reject the God who gave them life live lives of success, when the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, when God seems billions of light years away. There are times when it seems as if all we can do is pray. And so from a world that receives it light on a continual basis from the sun 93 million miles away we the people of the world cry out for light but not just any light for “THE LIGHT” the Light that illuminates and chases away our darkness.

And so a feeble prayer goes out… God who lives in heaven, God who also lives in our world, God who also lives in our hearts, “Send out your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live. There I will go to the altar of God, to God—the source of all my joy. I will praise you with my harp, O God, my God!” (Psalm 43:3–4, NLT)

Amen…

And the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking for Jesus answers, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.” (John 12:44–46, NLT)

There are times when trusting in Jesus means not seeking answers for which we cannot understand the totality of God’s Master Plan but try as best we can to rest in the assurance that in the end it is only God who is trustworthy and worthy of our trust. The Light of Jesus does not always illuminate the circumstances surrounding us but it always illuminates a path for us to walk.

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE!
