I have faith that the marmalade jam I have prepared and have on the stove cooking and which I am stirring is going to become marmalade.
I have followed the recipe to the last comma; the color is light, the bubbles are rising and breaking with a gluggy plop. My faith is in my preparation, the length of time spent cooking, the amount of sugar content and pectin. All these elements I have faith in should reward me with excellent tasting marmalade.
God loves faith. He wants us to respond to him in faith and enjoy his presence. To enjoy the Lord, we must first believe that he is a living person. If we cannot find him and accept him, we will never see him, know him, or enjoy him.
If we commit ourselves to him and take a risk by committing to a person we can’t see, what will the outcome be? The answer will be yes; we can step out trust God because he rewards them that believe in him.
God has promised us a life of abundance, joy, peace, everlasting life, protection and provision. It all rests on us taking a risk and putting our faith in him. God will be happy; we will be satisfied. The world will be a better place and heaven more prosperous.
