I think tonight most of us just need a little more faith. 2020 has been hard on all of us. It hasn’t always brought out the best in us.
I think we can all agree that sometimes for me it’s best to just admit that I don’t have it in me to cope and that I need God now more than ever.
It’s not true that God helps those who help themselves. God comes to those who know they can’t help themselves. God comes for those who admit their neediness and helplessness.
It’s also not true that God doesn’t give us more than we can bear. He never allows us to be tempted beyond our ability to endure. If we never faced anything that was more than we could bear, we wouldn’t need God in the first place. If we’re honest, all of us at times have faced adversity that seemed overwhelming and beyond our ability to endure. That’s where we saw God come through most clearly.
So yeah, I need more faith. Even if it’s still small, it’s enough. When it comes to the economy of faith, it’s not so much the size of your faith, but the size of the object of your faith– in our case, the size of a God who can be trusted at all times.
