Wouldn’t it be easy to believe in God if every time we prayed we would have immediate results? Like: “Heavenly Father, I’m short fifty bucks this week” – and Bam! – we go to the mailbox and sure enough we have a note from Aunt Chrissy, saying, “Here is fifty bucks. I just knew you would need it.” Or we pray: “Lord Jesus, please heal my headache,” as we place our hands on our head – and Poof! – no more pain.
Wouldn’t it be great if God was like a vending machine for miracles, we put in a prayer and out pops our answer?
If God wants us to believe in him, why doesn’t he always give us what we ask for? When some people get miracle answers and others don’t, are they being given special treatment? If they are, am I not special enough?
The Holy Spirit can lead us into the truth. Will you come on this journey with me as we discover what is meant by “possessing the harder faith”?
