True faith drops its letter in the mailbox, and lets it go. Distrust holds on to a corner of it, and wonders why the answer never comes. There were some cards on my desk that have been written for weeks, but there was some slight uncertainty about the address, so they are yet to be mailed. They’ve not done either me or anybody else any good yet. They will never accomplish anything until I let them go out of my hands and trust them to the post office.
True faith hands its case over to God, and then He works. Psalm 37:5 says: Commit your future to the LORD! Trust in him, and he will act on your behalf. - But He not until we commit.
Once you committed it to God, stop being anxious about it and wait for God’s work. “Be careful for nothing,” is unlimited; and so is, “casting all your care on Him.” If we take them back from the Throne of Grace, it is evident we didn’t leave them there.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
My test: If after committing anything to God, I can walk away and have my mind no longer sad, my heart with no more pain or anxiety, it is one proof that I have prayed in faith; but, if I carry away my burden, I conclude that faith was not exercised.
Don’t make it complicated. Truth faith takes Him at His Word., “And all things, as many as you might ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." Matthew 21:22
