“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.” – Mark 11:22
I ask some Christians, “How are you doing?” They say, “Okay—under the circumstances.” How did you ever get there?
Circumstances are like a mattress. You’re supposed to be on it, not under it. Under the circumstances, you suffocate; on them you rest pretty well.
The only way you can run the race is to take your eyes off things or people around you and look to Jesus. He’s the author of the race. He’s the goal to which you run. If you look to Jesus to supply your every need for the race, you’ll find faith growing in your heart and in your life. You see, it’s not great faith in God; it is faith in a great God.
