2 Corinthians 5:7 says, "for we walk by faith, not by sight."
Many times, the Lord has asked me to step out on faith, when I could not see the why or the how. In those times, not only has the Lord carried me through, but He has always blessed my weak steps of faith. When God prevents me from seeing the end result of a situation, I am tempted to try and write my own ending. Most of the time, if I look at my outward circumstances, the end result is sure to be ridden in failure and impossibilities. In these moments, I am reminded why the Bible says that Jesus is “the author and finisher of our faith,” (Hebrews 12:2). Without the Lord, my worries of failure would probably be accurate. I can praise the Lord that I am not the author of my faith. My faith comes from the Lord and He is the one writing my story and making the impossible possible.
When I look at all that encompasses New Hope Church and the New Hope Schools, I am amazed at what the Lord did from one step of blind faith. Today, 15 years after New Hope School was started, the Lord is still requiring us to “walk by faith, not by sight.”
