As a testimony, I look back on my life and I see the things the Father has done. I am not sure if it was my faith or the faith of friends and family, but faith changed my life.
Because of inability to have children, I decided the Father thought I wouldn’t be a good mother… or that I wasn’t spiritual enough to be a good mother. I thought of every reason under the sun why He must have wanted me to be childless, and most of the “reasons” had to do with the thought that I was not worthy.
Then one day my husband and I decided to consider adoption. Within a few weeks, we had children in our home. And those thoughts came back: I wasn’t good enough. I wasn’t spiritual enough. I wasn’t patient enough. I had none of the qualities a mother should have. Yet, somehow, through the years I began to develop those qualities. I grew more patient and more spiritual and much closer to the Father.
Someone had tremendous faith! Was it me? No way…. But….
In Matthew 17, Yeshua tells his disciples that they really trust so little but if they would have faith as big as a mustard seed, they could say to the mountains to move from one place to another and they would move! Nothing would be impossible to them…. Or us!!!
It must be that faith starts small and then grows. If the Father wants us to do something we think we are unable to do or are not qualified to do…we need to rethink the situation. Yeshua said, “All things are possible for one who believes” (Mark 9:23), and the apostle Sha’ul (Paul) declared, “I can do all things through haMashiach, who strengthens me.”
The Father knows how to accomplish HIS desires in us, for us and for others. Be encouraged! We have a Father we can trust. He will lead us through any and every circumstance we encounter (Isaiah 43:1-2).
Blessings to all!
