Stand Strong in the Floods

Fascinated by its compelling power, I walked along a rushing stream, overflowing its boundaries, and hurling along with mad force. I came to a bridge and watched the surging waters trying to grab and tear it down. Would I dare to walk across it? I think not as it’s foundation is probably all but torn away.

The dangerous force of this flood touched a space within me where I’d been thinking about my age in life. My last birthday brought opportunity for negative thoughts to form. Would my dream ever be fulfilled? I see such need and feel called to help, would I ever be able to travel and help those children?

But I also knew the love of my Father and His faithfulness. So I asked myself, what are the floods in my life that can be destructive to the foundation of my faith? Unanswered prayer? When I want my dreams fulfilled, and they are not? A devastating loss? A death in one I prayed would live? It seems many things can be fodder for the enemy to cut into my faith. Yet the Word tells how to keep strong: build our faith on the Rock of Jesus. . .

Colossians 2:7(AMP)
7 Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.

I blogged about one dream that never realized. It did not totally destroy my faith, but my heart was shadowed and my faith cut back. Finally, when I came to know Him on a deeper level, Jesus showed me His Father’s immense love for me personally; God wants only the best for me. His best is more than I could ever desire on my own. I trust Him now. That 'dream' may one day be fulfilled, or not. I am at peace.

What “floods” try to cut into your faith?
