What and who are we placing our faith in?
If we trust in ourselves, we will spend a lot of time worrying and if we place our faith in other people, we will most likely be disappointed. Who or what we put our trust in is our choice but God’s word makes it clear that our faith should be in Him.
In Luke 5:1-6 the disciples who were expert fishermen chose to trust the words of Jesus the carpenter. When they placed their trust in Jesus’ words, they took steps of faith that stretched them beyond their comfort and understanding. It did not go wasted didn’t it? God blessed them with a great number of fish.
So if you are asked to take a step of faith or if your faith is being stretched in a time of waiting, choose to trust in God for HE is more than able to turn your situation around and HE will surely bless you.
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.
