What We're Meant To Do
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~Romans 15:13
The life you're living is one you're going to be used in. Yet, unlike all of stories you hear of other Christians being radically blessed, the blessing you see in your own life feels relatively small.
Because training a child requires baby-steps. (That's right, I called you a child.) And when we train, we are asked to keep our focus on Him. He won't let you starve. He won't leave you, and if you fail, it's because you're going to trust Him to pick you back up again.
These are trust and faith-building exercises, except not as cheesy as the ones from work. This is more akin to learning how to ride your bike for the first time. The adult took off your training wheels, grabbed the handle bar and your seat, and told you what to do and what to expect.
When your bike swerved with your balance, if you fell off and skinned your knees, the adult came back. They checked your wounds, told you what you did wrong, and you got back on the seat for another go.
This is what God is doing with you.
The blessing was finally riding the bike like a champ without falling.
Yet, God doesn't leave that experience as the only lesson. You rode that bike to school through people and traffic. He taught you how to ride on dirt trails and over mountains.
Now you're the adult with your child, and you're applying the same lessons.
You get to be the reference guide for a smooth transition from walking-to-riding when other believers talk about the failure in their lives.
You can encourage them.
You will see, feel, and remember, the power of God during that time.
And telling others about the power of God is what we're meant to do.
