This week is one of my favorites because it hits so close to home. It’s about being in the midst of the pressing moments where human need is great and natural provision is short. And the question, as a banner stretched over the gaping chasm between those lands, remains standing overhead: what can you see for?
When all is against, gone, or opposed, can you see what could be in the midst of all that is before?
More and more I am coming face-to-face with the realization that faith is seeing the potential possibility in the middle of the sometimes overwhelming sea of impossibility.
When I tap into that place where His vision is greater than my sight, I can begin seeing as no one else sees, being given access to believe as no one else around. To create a way by seeing from His vision in the midst of the seemingly “way-less” ground before is the beauty of faith alive today.
And this story is all of that. It’s the story of most men who could not see the potential before them in the middle of that pressing ground of need, the supernatural power that surged through their ordinary hands, or the opportunity to take with them that given authority as they traversed the raging waters ahead.
It’s the story of some rag-tag men who were still learning how to see for things, believe in the middle of that which was before them, and to grasp their minds around how radically their lives were changed.
Really, it’s our story – smack dab in the middle of all the messy.
