It seems like we are always using our relationship with God as a measure of certainty for our Faith. We want to be certain that we are on the right path without any risk or steps of faith on our part. We would like for God to not only shine a light on our path but also to put up some road signs along the way that tell us we are where he wants us to be.
God’s Word is more of a compass or lighthouse in that it points us in a direction and shows us what we need to avoid, yet it cannot make the journey for us. The journey of life and the actions that we take in it are up us and our free will to follow God or not.
Sign of the Times
We often say we are waiting on a sign from God, or the more popular phrase today is “God’s Got This” and while that is true and may be helpful, it is like affirming the earth God created is round – of course it is and of course he’s got this because he has everything. There is nothing wrong with using these certainties to affirm our faith in God and to support one another but in our daily walk with God how do we live out our faith?
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
The writer of Hebrews asks us to look beyond what we can see to our hopes and dreams so that God can accomplish His purpose and fulfill our faith. To do that maybe we need to send a sign to God that we are willing and able to move and act on His behalf.
We can send Him a sign that our Faith lives in our hearts and our actions. He might in turn send a sign ( evidence ) that the purpose He has for our faith is both real and working. Then may our lives of faith be seen as a sign by others that God is real by the evidence of our lives.
