2 Corinthians 5:7 says that we walk by faith, not by sight. That means we base our beliefs or expectations on God’s Spirit and His Word, and not on things that can change or what we can control. However, if you’re in faith, God can give you a taste of what’s to come. In 1 Kings 18:44, Elijah had prayed for rain and when the servant saw a cloud “the size of a man’s hand”, he told the servant to tell the king, “Prepare your chariot and go down before the rain stops you”. Many times in my life I saw a little bit of what’s to come before the full manifestation and it emboldened my faith.

As a teen I was not very good at saving money. I would save just long enough until I saw something that I wanted (usually a book or a movie). On the other hand, my wife was quite the opposite. She saved up enough money to buy her first car in cash at 16, and […]
While in the midst of a career change, I got to meditating on James 1:2 which states, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” Afterwards, Isaiah 43:19 came to my remembrance: “Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall […]
As a father of two girls (ages 3 and 5) I have noticed that children do not have the same social insecurities that adults tend to have. Most children could walk around all day with spaghetti all over their face while wearing completely miss-matched clothing and think nothing of it. It is not uncommon to […]
I usually sign off on my posts with “Start somewhere and believe God for the increase.” There is a reason for that encouraging statement that God made very real to me.
