Faith – A Lifeline for Answers in Your Life – Pt. II

There’s nothing too big for God. Expect miracles. They come by faith, not by accident. ~ Oral Roberts

Blessings come because God loves us, (For God so loved the world that He gave …) not because of anything we do. Peace and protection are ours because God said so. And I believe His Word. That is faith.

Let me explain. When our daughter was 16, we got her a car. Not because she was exceptionally good and deserved a reward, but because she was our child and we loved her. (Of course, I think she is an exceptional child, but that’s beside the point! She was a teenager!)  

Now, there were rules with this gift. Not because we were mean, because we wanted to protect her as much as possible. We would not have given her a car at age 6 or 10. She wasn’t capable of that responsibility yet. Instead, we continued to teach and train her so she would be ready when the right time came.

God is the same way. The Bible says He is our Heavenly Father. And like any parent, He wants what’s best for His kids. The entire world was created for our playground.

Of course, there are certain ‘rules’ to obey. He knows what will ultimately hurt us. As a parent, His goal is to keep us safe, healthy, fully supplied and satisfied. Beloved I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)

So the next time you’re feeling neglected, depressed or lonely, remember to use your lifeline. Have faith that God has a good plan for your life. Believe that He wants to bless and protect you. Faith is the key to your place of joy, abundance and peace. God said so.
