Jesus said to her, ’Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?’ —John 11:40
Some who call themselves people of faith, attempt to conform that faith to common sense. They process scripture and the promises of God through the filter of common sense. The fact that such a process screens the miraculous from a life of faith, seemingly does not disturb them. But common sense is not faith, and faith is not common sense. In fact, they are as different as the natural life and the spiritual. When you are on the mountaintop, it’s easy to say, “Oh yes, I believe God can do it,” but you have to come down from the mountain to the demon-possessed valley and face the realities that scoff at your Mount-of-Transfiguration belief (see Luke 9:28-42 ).
Christ does not call us to a spiritual life that reduces the life of faith by a factor of reality. We are called to test the limits of what we believe to be reality and discover the wonder of the really miraculous world that the child of God inherits. If we will but test our faith and trust in Our Lord and His promises, we will discover the wonder of intimacy with Him and a world beyond our natural imaginings.
Step out and Be Blessed.
