The “What if’s” of fear vs the “Even if God does not” of faith.

Fear goes around clothed in the “What ifs” of our daily life. Its grandest dress being the “What ifs” of the unknown. But we need only remember that there is no element of the unknown to God…for He knows all from beginning to end. So the “What ifs” of fear have no place in our true knowledge of Him…for within His deliverance is peace. And all we can then say is, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.” (Hebrews 13:6)

The “Even if God does not” type of faith is forged in the valley of disappointment, pain, and grief. That’s because, we see God’s glory up on the mountaintop…but we must live it out in the valley…for that’s where true faithfulness is found. That’s where our faith is tested and tried…to a point where no longer is it a faith in faith, but a faith that transcends all imaginable limits…a faith, that no matter what God does, we will trust in Him. And probably the highest and greatest expression of this “Even if God does not” type faith comes from Job when he said, “Though He slay me, I will trust in Him.”
