How to Escape the Rat Race and Live a Radically Free Life
Regardless of circumstances, despite arguments of logic and reason, and regardless of how he or she felt, each person mentioned in Hebrews 11 believed God and His word and chose to be obedient. I began to wonder, If Luke 7 and Hebrews 11 illustrate great faith, is there a passage that illustrates a lack of faith? Then I remembered an incident from Mark 4 in which Jesus had just finished a full day of preaching and teaching by the shores of Galilee.
He instructed the disciples to go to the other side of the sea. Initially, they took Jesus at His word, got into a boat with Him, and headed for the other side. But when a storm arose, they grew fearful and lost confidence that they would actually reach the shore. Through my study of these three passages, I had arrived at a simple, workable definition of faith: Faith is taking God at His word.

Still, I had one more question. If faith is a matter of taking God at His word, what does God say about His word? I found the answer in Scripture itself:. His truth never changes. For instance, I feel things very deeply. At times I am so happy I think I will never be sad again.

Other times I am so sad I think I will never be happy again…and still other times I feel almost nothing. This means that no matter how I feel or what I experience, I can choose to depend on the Word of God as the unchanging reality of my life.
I look back on that summer evening and that homework assignment as a turning point in my life. That is the truth. That is where I am right now.

But, Lord, Your Word says that You love me. Your love for me is one thing that stands when all else has fallen. At other times I have felt afraid or lonely or depressed. But instead I chose with my will to believe His Word. Even Christ had feelings. He was honest, real, authentic. We, too, have immeasurable freedom to be candid with the Lord about our feelings, to tell Him honestly where we are and what is going on in our lives. I pray that You would conform me to the image of Christ.
We want the result but not the painful process.

The Lord is concerned about what we go through, but I believe He is more concerned about how we respond to what we go through. That response is a matter of our wills. He allows the trials, temptations, and pressures of life to come so that we have the opportunity to respond either by trusting our feelings and life experiences or by taking Him at His word. I have learned to get into the habit of taking God at His word—and now it is a habit! You and I can either grow accustomed to listening to our feelings, thoughts, and circumstances, letting them control us, or we can be in the habit of taking God at His word despite our feelings and life experiences.
