“You don’t need eyes to see your faith work” this line by Lacrae nearly knocked me out of my seat as I was riding down the highway. Thank God that I don’t have to tangibly see the good and wonderful as they manifest in my life. If you can’t see why I’m so excited I want you to check out this analogy: When you are the baker of a cake you plan the ingredients, purchase the ingredients, and have all the supplies needed to properly bake a cake. But the responsibility doesn’t stop there, once you have all the ingredients you must the start working. Putting the mix in a bowl, add eggs and milk, even stirring. But wait, my friend, there is more… now you must move the batter into an oiled pan, turn the oven on, get mittens for your hands, put the unfinished cake in the oven, set the timer, and prepare a place for the cake to rest and cool off before you can proceed to the next step of decorating or devouring. Exhausting!!!
With God working faith with your eyes closed is like going to a store and someone presenting you with a cake and a receipt. They tell you the cake is finished, paid for, and waiting for you to simply come to the store to pick it up!!!
That my friend is why I was so enthralled by the line because my spirit jumps when it’s reminded that we are the recipients of unearned favor, love, forgiveness, and provision. We show up in our relationship with God and God shows out every time. Seeing our blessing manifest our blessings and life is much to much work for you or me to take on! Allow God to be God in today and receive your peace that passes understanding. If you haven’t heard the song check it out below.
