Blessed are those who have put their trust, hope and confidence in the Lord.
– Jeremiah 17:7
The Bible is a massive travel journal from Genesis to Revelation. I love that the creator of all things is interested in our journey and the faith adventures we experience along the way. Even in those times when we are stuck in our own sinfulness or indecision God's word promises us that He will never leave us or forsake us. From the epic journey’s of Abraham and Sarah to the perilous mission trips of the Apostle Paul there is a common thread of seeking after God on the sojourn of life. He is faithful and true to His word.
On our recent Crossing Australia mission my good friend Vic Hausler joined the team driving a 74 year old military vehicle. On first impressions we all doubted the old truck would accomplish the 12,000km journey across Australia and back home. But it did. Vic had faith in the vintage Dodge and was well prepared, quietly confident that his classic rig would safely get him there and back again!!! Across the great deserts of Australia!! The old Dodge got stuck in deep sand and the boggy clay pans of the Simpson desert a few times but managed to forge its way across the continent at the hands of a skilled operator.
There is a blessing that comes when we put our trust, hope and confidence in the Lord. When we step out in faith and believe God for more than we can see in the present.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
– Hebrews 11:1
So keep believing for the impossible and keep learning to trust the Lord on the journey of life! He is faithful.
