I write this as I return from speaking in Florida. It was a fabulous weekend at Covenant Fellowship with Jenny Bolt. Those girls got it goin’ on!
As I travel home by plane my mind wonders to so many things that defy all reason.
It doesn’t make sense.
I look out the window and see the long sprawn out wing. It waivers and bounces and I wonder why it doesn’t just snap off.
I look around the plane and see weight everywhere. Passenger weight, baggage weight, not to mention the burden from the aircraft weight alone. And yet I soar through the heavens thousands of feet in the air.
If you only look with your eyes it doesn’t make sense.
But there are laws.
Oh, I don’t know them because that was not my interest in school. But there are reasons why heavy jets can fly, birds can soar, and gravity holds us down. They are laws that we can’t see, but that stand true.
Over and over they stand true.
We can count on them.
The laws are faithful.
Against all odds.
We look at our lives and somewhere deep down we have fears that don’t make sense. It’s like the jet plane and if you just glanced at it not knowing any of the faithful laws it wouldn’t make sense.
I was a horrible student growing up. My English grades were barely passing.
I was shy. I would die if I knew the teacher was going to call on me to answer out loud and I would just as soon have taken an F than stand up in front of the class.
I knew my fears.
They were true. Or so it seemed.
Our fears are only as faithful as we let them be. If we choose to let them rule our lives, then that is the law we will live with.
If we choose to move on despite the reasons that overwhelm us — then we win.
There is One who is always faithful.
While the laws of gravity and inertia are faithful and true, there is One even greater that is always true.
The fears and circumstances of my life said – I’d never write nor would I ever speak in front of people. Jesus had a different plan in mind.
Jesus truths always override the truths you perceive in your mind. [tweet that]
Every time I have opportunity to write or speak I’m continually reminded how awesome Jesus is when we put our trust and faith in Him.
Even when it seems against all odds — Jesus can do something so amazing with our obedience and trust in Him.
What false truth are you listening to today?
What seems against all odds?
