The reason why the road to destruction is wide and so many people are on it is that this road is based on what you can see! The hope and evidence of God on this road is purely sight based!
“When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him. From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform a sign of some sort.” – Luke 23:8
One of the primary differences between a legalist and a GraceFull Being is that one is based on sight and the other is based on Faith!
Legalist will always want to see your ability; the GraceFull will always welcome your inability!
This is one reason why people were crazy in like and indeed in love with the message of Jesus Christ when He walked on the earth – for the first time they heard that God actually liked them, just as they are and not as they should be!
We were not saved because of our ability – it is our inability that brought us to The Hope that we grow in By Grace (Free Gift) through Faith (non-sight)!
We grow in Hope by resting in what is and knowing that He has everything in control and Loves us more than we can imagine – with this realization each moment IS perfect – Yes even those where we screw up!
Why? Because He is able at any moment to stop a situation or to allow our thoughts to understand something that would cause us to stop an action so whatever happens He is using it to get us where He needs us!
The more we see God’s Bigness, Ability and Love for us – the greater our rest right Here and Now just as life is and not as life should be, we should be or others should be! Growing Hope that last means Growing Hope in what you can’t see!
