Moses looked foolish asking Pharaoh to let his slaves go. The Israelite army looked foolish marching round Jericho blowing trumpets. David looked foolish attacking Goliath with a slingshot. The wise men looked foolish following a star. Peter looked foolish stepping out of the boat in the middle of a storm.
But the results speak for themselves, don’t they?
Noah stayed afloat during the flood. Sarah gave birth to Isaac. Moses delivered Israel out of Egypt. The walls of Jericho came tumbling down. David defeated Goliath. The wise men found the Messiah. Peter walked on water.
As long as you need man’s approval, God is limited in what He can do through you.
Faith is the willingness to look foolish. That’s why faith and humility go hand in hand.
There comes a moment when you must quit hedging your bets, quit playing it safe and doing what you’ve always done.
You need to build the ark, or at least plant some trees or saw some planks!
Faith is acting as if God has already answered our prayers.
Start doing it!
