Out my window I see a very large icicle, dripping. It will likely be gone in a couple of hours, for today – the temp is heading to 40. But it is winter here in the heartland and tonight it will get cold enough to freeze drips, turning them back into icicles.
Icicles remind me of faith. Two steps forward (complete melting) and one step back (hello, icicles)! We often find ourselves on a roll of faith, everything is fine, we are filled with faith, believing strongly in God and all He brings to our life ….. and then BAM, “something” happens and now we are standing on shaky ground. Our faith? Sure, yah, I’ve got faith. Faith that nothing will ever change.
We are troubled human beings. People have lacked faith since the days of Moses.
Mark 16:14Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
We are always just a moment away from circumstances changing, so we must always stand firm on our faith. We are not icicles, we will not melt and come back again the next day, we are human beings made in the image of Jesus, a strong, solid foundation. May your faith be strengthened today and every day.
