Was it logical for Abraham to leave his home; start walking to heaven only knows? Was it logical for David to walk up on Goliath with just five stones? Was it logical for Peter to walk on water?
Logic has its place and purpose but, when God inspires us to do something that defies logic, we should latch on and get ready for a ride of a lifetime. Though, it gets complicated when we can’t tell if we’re following God, or being tricked by the enemy.
Too deceived to believe!
We can’t follow God’s directions if we can’t discern His voice from all the other voices that we hear. However, being able to distinguish His voice is only part of it; we have to have the willingness and the self-discipline to obey once we know it’s Him talking. Obedience is a good self-analysis of our faith. Nevertheless, if it’s fear that is causing us to walk by logic and not by faith, then we must ask the Holy Spirit to help us to overcome our anxieties.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13)
Eager to learn!
When I think about the bravery those people had back in biblical times, the only conclusion I can draw: They really knew God personally; they trusted Him more than they doubted Him. We must keep an appetite to learn about our Master. What we learned about Him a couple of days ago, should leave us desiring to learn more today. The closer our relationship becomes, the more we’ll trust Him.
What is God asking you to do that defies logic?
