On Sunday, November 22, 2020, Dave had his final proton beam treatment for prostate cancer. The doctor assured him that he was leaving the Center prostate cancer free. And on his way out the door for his final time, he rang the Victory Bell to signal his recovery. Because we can’t see it with our eyes, we take it on faith in the words of the expert that there is no more cancer. Praise be to God!
What can’t you see? What is happening in your life that requires you to exercise your faith? If we can believe by faith the words of a doctor who is an expert in his field, even though our eyes can’t see it, what is keeping us from trusting in the Sovereign God, who is the ultimate expert? If God says it will be, then it will be. If God tells us to keep trusting, even though the road ahead is pitch black, we can believe Him to keep us in the middle of that road.
We don’t know God’s timetable for the answers to our challenges, but we know God. By faith, we must move forward.
Life disappoints, people disappoint, our worlds might suffer hit after hit. No fun. At. All. It’s okay to cry for the disappointments and mourn the losses. Jesus cried. Just remember to surround your life and your prayers with faith. Wipe your face off and get up. Show the world what trusting in a faithful God looks like.
