I am like a three-year-old. I want to do things myself. I do not want to be helped, even when that help could make things easier. Even though I know faith is easier when accepting God’s grace, God’s help, I like the control of doing things on my own. And it is in this that I fail. It is when I give in and believe it is not about faith in God, but rather about faith in my own works, it is then I turn my back on God and deny him. And this is true in my faith life.
Yet Saint Paul makes it clear. It is all about faith. It is all about believing in what God can do. It is in recognizing the grace that God freely gives so that I can acknowledge him and what he is about. It is about trusting God. God keeps His covenants. God keeps promises. And God is ever so generous in helping us to believe.
