God thinking XI - Are You Real With God Or Are You Still Trying To Fake It? 2

"There is no question that there would be a great deal more healing if there were a great deal more faith. But true faith is about trusting God despite the outcome, (it is not in having to always get what we think should be the outcome).

God thinking proposes that true faith is knowing that within the mind of God rests the fullness of understanding.  And you are OK with that.

I know that many claim to have it all figured out and I have no dispute with them.  But I have something figured out too.  God Almighty is not pleased when you think we know all there is to know about God. 

God doesn’t want you to trade in your faith, (the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen), for a lordship of sorts, where God is all figured out and there is an answer to every question.

Some of you want a Jesus who responds on command, like He is your slave.  No, the Jesus of the scriptures is the one who walked on water.  He is the one who heals the sick and saves souls.  He is the one who loves unconditionally.  He it is who gives grace.  I am going to put my trust In Jesus, without conditions.

Faith was never meant to force the hand of God.

Faith was meant to accept what God allows with thanksgiving.  Your understanding is found in your trust in God’s Sovereignty."
