"What if..." versus "By faith!..."

“What ifs” are often rooted in fear and expressed in worry, doubt, unbelief, control, and even manipulation. “What ifs” will drive you insane! “What ifs” will mercilessly toss you about! They will rob you of precious sleep, burn holes in your soul, destroy your hope and wear you out! (James 1:2-8)

You have plans that make sense to you, but God has plans that make sense to Him. God sees around the corner, even if you can’t.

Take back the “what ifs” and live “by faith”. It’s not just survival; living by faith is the key to thriving in the midst of adversity! It’s not our way, it’s His way. (Luke 24:36-49, Isaiah 55:9)

“By faith” is trusting God to accomplish His plan in your life. 

“By faith” is, to the natural mind, abandoned and sometimes illogical trust in His leading. 

“By faith” says, “I may have lost my income, but I have not lost my income Source!”

“By faith” says, “I may have lost my loved one, but I have not lost the One who is Love!”

“By faith” says, everything works together for those who love God and are called according to His purpose!” (Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28, Hebrews 11:1, Micah 7:7, 1 John 4:7)

By faith you can move forward. You can stand. You can overcome. You can take back the land that was stolen. You can conquer this mountain. You can breathe again. You can live again! (Hebrews 11:1-12:3, 2 Corinthians 5:6-7, Matthew 17:20)

Princess, walk by faith, not by sight!
