What would your life look like if you chose to live by faith every single day? How would it be different?
The questions came in a conversation with a friend about a possible book idea. At least that’s what I thought at the time.
• What if I stopped to pray every time I needed to make a decision or a choice?
• What if I asked the Holy Spirit to help me constantly?
• What if I woke up every morning and prayed to surrender that day and my will to His purpose.
• What if I got to the end of me and let Him take over?
Yes. What would that look like?
If we committed ourselves to live by faith on a daily, hourly, minute-to-minute basis, how would life change?
Do you ever think about that? I really hadn’t until my friend made the suggestion.
In Sunday school, we taught the kids Hebrews 11:1. “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
I tell you, the kids were able to grasp this much better than their teacher.
Can I live confidently in what I hope for and be certain about what I don’t see? I want to. I pray to.
My guess is most Christians would agree with my statement. We want to. We pray to. It’s just sometimes life clouds our vision and causes our minds and hearts to go astray. So what do we do?
Perhaps it is as simple as my friend suggested. Maybe it’s a grown-up time out where I take a moment to pause and pray, asking for guidance and strength that is not from me.
My sweet friend suggested living by faith as a subject of a book. But perhaps, it’s much more than that. Yes, perhaps it is. In fact, I know it is.
It is choosing daily to live out what I profess to believe in. By letting go, living confidently and being certain – the light of life can and will shine through me and be a beacon pointing others to the only One worthy.
