Theological Education: Equipping People of God
For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the LORD, who has mercy on you.(V.10)
Leap of faith
To pick God’s work over your home, loved ones and their expectations is indeed a massive leap of faith. It can only be done with absolute faith in God that He will take care of you and your loved ones. I believe that any Christian who dedicates their lives to God has to take that leap of faith, to some extent, in order to place themselves in His safe hands.
As children of the world we are programmed at a very young age to aim for success in everything we do. Our skills are molded such that we can use them to build a successful career. Our efforts to achieve our very best in life cannot be criticized. However, what needs to be criticized and thought over is the stress and isolation that comes to someone that cannot achieve this success in the world. Any sense of self-worth and confidence is stripped from the person and he/she is left in the dark for the rest of their lives. It is in this darkness that we are blinded of the beauty of God’s creation and his purpose for every single creation he puts on this world. All the children of God are promised a place in heaven despite their strengths or weaknesses. Isaiah.54 1-17 explains the heritage of the servants of God. God had promised that the servant would “see his offspring”(V.10).Really the outcome of God's promises are beyond our comprehension. It is not only the experience of the servant in Isaiah' prophecy but ours also.
As Christians this promise from our Lord is our strength. His promise gives all of us the strength to dream of the impossible and know that with Him we can make those dreams come true.
Thought for the Day: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11: 1
Prayer: Lord help us lay our lives in your hands and through this find the strength to do the impossible in your name. ….Amen
