Believing God is who He says He is, and He will do what He says He will is what as Christians call ‘Faith in God’.
Where our faith journey begins is when we first start trusting in God. Time is not necessarily a good indicator of maturity. In fact, we have all met people who we would consider are not acting their age.
Let's face it, in the current global circumstances the idea of 'passing it on' is something we're all putting a lot of effort into trying to avoid at the moment! Well, at least in the case of the 'it' being Covid-19 anyway! However, in stark contrast the 'it' we're talking about here is best described by Peter as 'the reason for the hope that you have' (1 Peter 3:15). We're talking about our faith and our hope in Jesus.
Things I have pondered while locking the chooks up at night
Each night I wander up the hill on our property and lock the chooks away safely for the night. I could do it earlier, but I enjoy going up in the dark. On clear nights it always takes me longer because I get captivated by the spectacular display of stars. The Milky Way is glorious and the clouds of Magellan, seemingly so small but made up of billions of stars, is just mind blowing. In the stillness and the dark, under such an enormous canopy of stars, it is easy to feel tiny and insignificant, the immensity of the Universe is hard to grasp.
