Have you ever noticed how quickly things change?
From our families, friends, residents, governments and even ourselves. Change is inevitable.

The ever changing world also affects what happens inside of us. How we see the world largely affects how we move around in it, but when we remember that God is still sovereign and is still in control, we can have peace even when we encounter uncomfortable change.

Read Matthew 5:13-16 (http://bit.ly/2HvNvLi)

Jesus said we are to be the salt and light of the world. Therefore, it is important to see the world the way God sees it, so we can see how He plans on using us in it.

Pain and suffering.
Disappointments and frustration.
These are life experiences we will all go through. Sometimes they’ll shake us up and have us question our identity.

Read Genesis 50:20 here –http://bit.ly/2Hucsqe

Josephs story exemplifies this; from his brothers selling him, to being wrongfully arrested. Despite the trials Joseph faced, he still trusted God and God used him even in the storm. When you read the story you realise that there’s nothing romantic about his story. However, you also see that Joseph has that insistent hope that God will turn his situation around.

That is what faith is, it pushes against all reason and logic, and holds on to Christ even when all else is falling apart around you.

Read 1 Samuel 3:10 (http://bit.ly/2Hsoqku)

We live in the information age. Constantly bombarded with messages. With good or bad news, we can somehow get caught up in fake realities. From television news to reality shows, we are constantly fed messages that aren’t real. Which sometimes become louder than the voice of God.

God wants us to hear Him so we can respond in obedience to Him. The message of the Gospel has stood the test of time and hasn’t changed therefore should be trusted above all messages. Because of this message we are able to hear God and therefore truly live for Him.

Our primary senses are sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. We navigate our lives by these senses. They give us the information we need to know when something is good or bad for us, and of cause it’s easy to rely on these to go through life. God however calls us to rely on higher senses. To rely on Him so that we can live from and by His truth.

Read Mark 8:22-25 (http://bit.ly/2r3zg5n)

The blind man who asked Jesus for healing knew that he had to rely on faith to get his sight. We must also learn to navigate through life above what we see, by trusting Jesus.
