Faith is not logical. But it isn’t illogical either. Faith is theological. It does not ignore reality; it just adds God into the equation. Abraham “faced the fact.” But he was also “fully persuaded” that God had the power to deliver on His promise. Faith is not mindless ignorance; it simply refuses to limit God to the logical constraints of the left brain.
Think of it this way. Logic questions God. Faith questions assumptions. And at the end of the day, faith is trusting God more than you trust your own assumptions.
Mark Batterson in The Wild Goose Chase
It has been wonderful how God has renewed my creativity and my right-brain but I am also so left-brained I feel I am having an internal war. Logic keeps spitting up and Faith keeps cleaning up…its been a bit messy.
We lose perspective when we lose sight of the promises of God. Mark Batterson again a good book!
Remember what you said to me, your servant—
I hang on to these words for dear life!
These words hold me up in bad times;
yes, your promises rejuvenate me.
