Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
I am less impressed each day by what the so-called "faith" teachers are saying. Oh, that doesnít mean I am losing my faith. Quite the contrary. I am realizing that there are complexities of Godís working and power that are way beyond our simplistic understanding. Rather than seeing God work in a broad, omnipotent scale, teachers today are concentrating on a narrow area, usually having to do with health and prosperity. They dare to call themselves "faith" teachers, but often limit their teaching to target a small area of visible human desire. They are setting people up to be disappointed and disillusioned if their expectations are not met. Meanwhile, God is pouring out blessings that are way beyond our wildest dreams, and they are going unrecognized.
For instance, when a friend or family member is taken instantly and painlessly into glory to be with the Lord forever, we can recognize that God has taken that person to the eternal reward that we are all striving for, or go around saying Satan has stolen something, as many "faith" people are prone to do. I believe such thinking has quenched more blessing than it has brought. Any event, no matter how apparently "tragic" in human terms, is an opportunity for God to work and show His power in the lives of all affected, in ways never before anticipated. The objective of the Christian life is to return to a fellowship with God that was lost when Adam fell, not to hang on to earthly treasures. If there is any area where we should get our thinking out of a box, itís having to do with God. I choose to believe that the God of the universe who loves me, has ordained from the beginning of time the blessings that will be poured out on me - not limited to what my feeble, finite mind can imagine, but far beyond what I even know to ask for.
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9
