At times, I’ve heard the voice of Gnarls Barkley in my head. “I remember when, I remember I remember when I lost my mind.” For those of you who don’t know, this comes from his song called “crazy.” When God tells me the things that He’s about to do, this song begins to play in the background. What makes it worse is the progression from God revealing His promise, to actually fulfilling it.
That in between space is difficult because it truly makes you feel crazy. Everything around you is speaking the exact opposite and here you are in this fairytale world seeking the Lord to fulfill what He said. Because I’ve had many a “crazy” moments ACTUALLY come to pass, I can tell you that you aren’t crazy. It’s simply called “crazy faith.”
When you believe what the Lord has told you no matter the circumstances you face, that’s exactly what it is. To that person that’s believing God for the impossible, take this devotional as a reminder that you ARENT crazy. God has indeed spoken to you and HE WILL fulfill what He has promised. Just you wait and see! And at that moment you will be able to tell your soul to rest, for the Lord has been good to you.
TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD! (Psalm 34:8)
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
Hebrews 11:1 NIV
“God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”
Numbers 23:19 NIV
“Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”
Psalms 116:7 NIV
Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.
What do you do to keep yourself in a place of expectancy and not doubt? If I could make a suggestion, spend time reflecting on the confirmations God has given you and the times He has come through for you in the past.
