Help, i don’t understand

Following Jesus means that sometimes we won’t understand what God is busy doing at the moment. Faith is not even seeing the first step but knowing the One who is calling you. 

We often think that faith means understanding, but God calls us to faith. Scripture tells us that faith is the evidence of the things not seen. Therefore, when we walk by faith, understanding will follow. To believe God means that we sometimes won’t understand; however, not understanding is not the same as doubt.

In Proverbs 27, we read that iron sharpens iron. Change happens when accountability is placed on you. Therefore, it is important to surround ourselves with fellow Christians who can speak life into our walk and encourage us to grow in our understanding of who God is.

If we walk away from God because we don’t understand, we can’t have a part in what He is doing; you can’t open a gift you don’t have. The sacrifices we make forms part of our worship, and in those sacrifices, God is busy working out a plan that we might not understand yet. Obedience is not always easy, but the anointing comes through sacrifice.

The grace shown to Peter when he started sinking was the grace he needed when he later denied Jesus. God is always working; even when we don’t see it, He is already making way for what is to come. 

We should not quit the process because we don’t understand, but rather keep pursuing God in faith.
