We commonly have a misconception that faith can only be exercised on a one time big time basis. But, we are wrong. Sometimes or most of the time, faith is tested in simple situations like being able to sit in mrt or ride in a bus that looks full.
Few nights ago, I was on my way to a client. I have to ride a bus. But the bus looks full so some ladies in front of me stopped and chose to wait for another one. And here I was, wondering what to do. Am I going to follow the crowd? If I do I have to spend more than 10mins again and I will definitely be late to a client meeting. And that doesn’t sound right so I decided to take a leap of faith and believe there is still a seat for me inside. And God never failed to amaze me, I found a very comfortable seat.
The story may sound so ordinary. But this ordinary event, taught me to take a leap even if others don’t; to be successful even if others chose to stepback and wait for a moment; and, to believe that God is faithful even in the simplest things. Jesus kept on emphasizing that we should have a childlike faith, believing no matter what. Continue believing cause faith is not based on your feelings.
