The Simplicity of Faith

Since I have been here for the term of my ministry training, I have had vivid dreams in the night filled with revelation.  Prophecy has been actively coming out of my mouth more in the past month than probably has in my entire life.  Scripture has been opening up to me in new ways that encounter my heart at its deepest level.  I have engaged in intercession privately and corporately for different causes, people groups, and even individuals with a new boldness I never knew existed in me.

Since I have been here for the term of my ministry training, I have had days that added up to weeks that felt like a nightmare.  Tears (sad tears) have been actively emerging from my eyes more in the past month than probably has in my entire life.  Doors have been closed in my face again and again of things I believe God promised me.  Including the doors to the house in which I lived.  I have moved from couch to couch, unsure of what the next day would look like with an overwhelming fear unlike anything I’ve encountered.

I do not fully understand the ways of the Lord, and I must admit, that sometimes offends me.  But rather or not I understand, I know His ways are perfect.

Ever come to a point in your life where you have to ask yourself, “What am I doing?  Is it really worth it?”  The beauty of following God is that we don’t have to answer that question.  He holds all the answers, even when we don’t understand them.  He presents them to us in His perfect timing.  All we have to do is acknowledge that He is Lord, and that burden is not ours to take.

Tonight I don’t have any deep revelation or breakthrough to share.  All I know is that faith is really so simple.  Most of the time, we want new messages about God we haven’t heard before, but sometimes, it’s just necessary to get back to the basics.  Especially when our lives don’t look like we think it’s should.  Or His word doesn’t align with our circumstances.  We try to make faith a complicated thing, but it’s just believing.  That simple.  And it doesn’t get much simpler than this:

The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.
Psalm 19:7-9
