Losing, failing, and puzzling isn’t always fun.
Of Abraham: Abraham had no idea where he was going; [still he] said yes to God’s call to an unknown place… (Hebrews 11:8)
Of Peter: “When you were young [Peter] you…went wherever you wished, but when you get old you’ll…[go] where you don’t want to go.” ( John 21:18)
Of you and me: “If you don’t know what you’re doing, ask the Father. He loves to help. (James 1:5)
Losing, failing, and puzzling is a normal experience for roller coaster riders and skydivers—They even pay money for such joy rides.
Losing, failing, and puzzling may also be a normal experience when living by faith.
If so, do you still want on the faith ride?
Why or why not?
