It’s spring. (At least that’s what my calendar says) But this is the view I see when I look out my back door. What I’m seeing isn’t exactly matching what I’m expecting spring in Pennsylvania to look like.
However, I DON’T expect it to snow forever. I DO expect spring to come soon. It’s not a guess…or a feeling…or a prediction…I just know that God created spring to follow winter…EVERY TIME. It may seem delayed. It may not get here when I (or my fellow “scientists” :-) ) expect, but it WILL happen!
Living by faith is like that. Even when I can’t SEE the results that I expect, even when God’s promises SEEM to be delayed or “late”, even when my reality isn’t matching what my calendar says, I can still trust God. Just like I can be SURE that spring is coming.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
