Just Believe

Sometimes, our lives seem uncertain, foggy even. At times our futures are pure shadowland, shrouded in the shadows of uncertainty, discouragement and fear.

We strain to see through the fog of our lives, straining to see what lies ahead in our future, though all along possessing no power to do so (and we never will!).

It is in times like this that we often find ourselves turning to God, saying,

“I just can’t see, Lord. What do you want me to do?” I have asked this question so many times it is unbelievable.

And I have a feeling you have too.

We ask for vision, for a clear path, which is not a wrong request in itself. It’s actually quite right and acceptable, so long as we are seeking the Lord’s will instead of bending His will to our own.

God wants us to seek his will, to long for his guidance and to rely upon him.

But the problem occurs when we want God to just show us the roadmap and all the wonderful plans he has for us in advance, so that we can see all the potholes, pit-stops, and problems along the way.

We wish for clear paths.

We all do. It’s only human.

“Make your paths known to me.”

We ask with genuine longing to know the paths God has for us, to know the clear destination and journey to it.

We want to know the steps to take forward.

What do I do now?

And His response?

“This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” (John 6:29)

Just believe.

It sounds so simple, but that is His answer. To believe in the one whom he sent.

And whom did he send?

“And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3)

While we sometimes wish for a full game-plan for our lives, in color and with footnotes included, God sometimes asks us to just look to Him.

To simply stop worrying about the ‘plan’ and to resist the urge of looking at the foggy and uncertain road ahead, and just turn our eyes on Him.

“Just look at me, child.” He says, “I have you in my hand; believe in me and take the next step of the journey. Just keep your eyes on me.”

Believe in Him today, friend.

Don’t worry if you don’t have it all figures out or if you don’t know what to do next.


Just believe.
