It can be tough to figure out the secret to living by faith when we’re busy being angry at God. Trust me. I’ve had a little experience on this area.
A recent post [ You Don’t Need All the Answers to Stop Being Angry at God ] explored this dilemma with a look at the Israelites predicament in Exodus 14. Like them, we struggle to discover the secret to living by faith when we’re freaking out about God dumping us in the wilderness. Or so we think.
During times of testing, we can discover the secret to living by faith when God calls us to let go but not let up.
It’s one of those oxymoronic things that God calls us to do, like give up in order to gain, or humble ourselves in order to be exalted. Over the last year, we’ve had to try learn this truth as God has pried our fingers back one by one, leaving us, as it were, living with our palm wide open. And on that open hand, He placed a flat sheet of paper, representing our calling. Then He told us to run. With all our might.
