From Faith to Reality

What if I don't like it?1 min

I hope I’m not the only one with such questions in mind. Yes, I know we are to have faith that the “…father give good gifts…” Mat 7:11. But because we live in dual dimensions, it’s easy to get things twisted. Getting the real mixed up with fantasy. Spiritual with carnality. 

From imagination, we tend to develop an idea of what God has planned for us verses what He actually has in mind. How wonderful it would be to finally have and to hold a promise. But would it really be as wonderful as we’ve dreamed about? 

Yes I know that He’s “…able to do exceeding, abundantly above all we may ask or think.” Eph 3:20, but can He really? 

Would it really be wonderful?  I mean will it look like what I think it should look like? Will I recognize it when it appears?  Will I like it? Now that’s the real question, “Will I like it?”.

And especially since he’s said “… my thoughts are not your thoughts…” Is 55:8. What does he mean by that exactly? Will what he perceives as good for me be not good to me? After all, he is a father looking out for what’s best for his children. 

I believe it’s only natural to imagine our response and the feelings of joy and fulfillment in receiving fulfilled promises. But what if what we imagined coming to manifestation wasn’t quite what God had in mind? Boy would that be disappointing. What if, what He called a “good thing” scared the bejesus out of you? 

No matter what, there is one thing that I know for sure. And that is that he will give me, “…the desires of my heart.” Ps 37:4 And since, “…the father and I are one” Jn 10:30, I shall have, “whatsoever I say.” Mk 11:24 from faith, to reality.
