Have you ever lacked faith in God? That’s kind of like asking, “Do you need air to breathe,” isn’t it? We all struggle sometimes to trust God and His timing during a difficult season of life, or to really believe that good can come out of something this bad.
And yet we are called to trust, to believe, to have complete faith in the God who promises us that He is always good and that He will never leave us or forsake us. Sometimes all we need is a little perspective.
Take a pilot for example. When he is ready to land his aircraft, his own individual flight pattern isn’t the only one that matters. That’s why the air traffic controller is his guide – the controller has the big picture. He knows which planes are on the ground and in the air, which ones are landing and taking off. But if a pilot decides to forego the instructions of the controller and land his plane anyway, the results could be disastrous for many people.
Our faith in God works in a similar way. God is the blessed Controller of all things. He has the entire picture in mind at all times. As we wait on Him for further instructions, we can have complete faith that He will get us safely where we need to be – exactly when we need to be there. Have faith in Him today.
Our Master, Jesus Christ, is on his way. He'll show up right on time, his arrival guaranteed by the Blessed and Undisputed Ruler, High King, High God. – 1 Timothy 6 (The Message)
