Faith Is Not Understanding


The mind wants to understand, but the heart chooses to believe. Faith is not understanding with the intellect. Faith is believing with the heart.

All too often, we strive to understand…we want to fill in the blanks…we want to know how and why. All too often, we miss out by trying…by wanting to understand.

Faith believes, often with no hint of understanding. Faith is what we hope for without the evidence to see…to understand. Without faith we cannot please God.

His ways and thoughts are far beyond our reach…past finding out. He doesn’t ask us to understand…He asks us to believe…to trust by faith…because He said so.

    I needed to read this today. Believe. In the timing. In your circumstance. In yourself.

  2. Because He said so… I can still hear my mother saying because I said so. It’s the child-like faith concept. Thanks Butch!
