Believe His Purpose

Zechariah said to the angel, “How can I know ·that what you say is true [this]? [For] I am an old man, and my wife is old, too” Luke 1:18 EXB

The Bible is full of stories about men and women who were urged to believe in the impossible or the extraordinary. Many of them, like us, had moments of doubt or scepticism. When we are so firmly rooted in the natural, it is difficult to believe in the supernatural.

Notwithstanding, that is the nature of our God, to make us believe the impossible. He is a God of signs, wonders and miracles. As we see in Isaiah 55:8My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.

Fortunately, for us, the Bible demonstrates that whenever a man or woman reaches out in faith and accepts the challenge to believe in God and His purpose, despite everything, all things eventually work for his/her good.

Therefore, let us follow in the footsteps of the forefathers, believing against all odds, hoping against all odds, and remaining firm in our faith. Let us remain faithful to the purpose, despite the billowing winds of doubt. Let us cling to God’s purpose, even if it means contributing our last two pesewas [widow’s mite] to see it realised.

Help me to understand, loving and all-powerful Father, that when I seek You first, all things will work for my good. Please remove all doubt and scepticism from my heart. Please help me to keep pursuing You and staying true to Your purpose. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
