Sometimes it’s difficult to have faith when we can’t see how something is going to be done. The dream that God put in your heart is probably so big, you can’t even begin to see how it will be accomplished. But you heard what God promised you. Just because you can’t see the “how” does not mean that God can’t bring it to pass.
A Dream to Illustrate
I remember when I first started working at my job at a major credit union. I couldn’t begin to see how I would meet all of my job requirements. I was completely overwhelmed. One night, I had a dream that I was walking across an old rickety bridge, on my way towards a tall beautiful bridge I had to cross in order to get home. The old raggedy bridge broke down, I fell into the water and then the next thing I knew, I was in my house without remembering that I crossed over the huge beautiful bridge leading to my home. When I woke up, I asked God for the interpretation of the dream. He told me when the bridge broke down, that meant that I was going to go through some perilous times on my job. When I got home without being conscious of crossing the tall, beautiful bridge, that meant that my competency level on my job at the beginning was “Point A,” and being able to handle the job requirements was “Point B,” and I didn’t have to know how I would get from point A to point B. Just believe. When it was all said and done, I was able to handle the job, and at one point, I ended up getting recognition for my performance. God’s grace was necessary and sufficient.
A Biblical Example of Faith
In the first chapter of Luke, when the angel, Gabriel, told Mary, the mother of Jesus, she would bear a son, she asked Him, “How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?” He told her the Holy Spirit would overshadow her and she would conceive, and she told him, “Be it unto me according to thy word.” She didn’t know how it was going to happen, but she trusted God to bring it to pass. She could not see what was between points A and B, but she chose to believe that point B would be her destination. This is prime example of how, even though it’s difficult to see how God will accomplish the work He has promised, we can still have faith and just simply believe.
In the same way, if God puts a dream or vision in your heart that seems ridiculously large, and you can’t see how in the world it will happen based on where you are now, you need to say, “Be it unto me according to thy word.” It’s not up to you to make it happen. Zechariah 4:6 says, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit saith the Lord of hosts.” Just believe that God will get you to “Point B” through the power and grace of His Spirit. Thus, it’s not necessary for you to know how God will accomplish what He said. Leave what’s between points A and B up to Him. That’s His business. Your business is to trust Him. Your job is to do what He tells you to do, when He tells you to do it, and believe that He will eventually bring your dream to pass in His timing.
What do you believe God will do in your life even though, right now, you can’t see how He will do it? Please leave a comment below.
