Trust Regardless of External Circumstances
Through the power of John's stories, we learn that Trust is one of the most important aspects of our faith in God. We as Christians must learn to lean on our faith in the face of uncertainty. The next obstacle you face could be at your job, at your home, or even at your grocery store but know that there is not a single external circumstance that can distance you from God. Only you can distance yourself from him. Have you experienced a time where you distanced yourself from God due to the world around you? The end goal is to make every action represent our belief that God has our best interest in mind. He does! Trust me.
Focus on the Present
It is important to partner with God in the moment and the present. God can direct us to everything we need through his plan. This is a huge struggle for me and maybe some of you reading this post. We, as humans, love to plan for the future. It means safety and even peace of mind. These things are important but what are the safety, peace of mind, and freedom worth if we don't do it for Jesus? You probably have many opportunities each day to build upon your faith but sometimes they are hard to find. Each interaction can be bountiful!
