“Faith is like a radar that sees through the fog–the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.” -Corrie ten Boom
Radar: definition- “a device for determining the presence and location of an object by measuring the time for the echo of a radio wave to return from it and the direction from which it return; a means or sense of awareness or perception”: synonyms- direction finding, tracking system, beacon, lighthouse, watchtower
Faith is the way to determine the presence and location of God no matter what the ‘weather’. It is a means or sense of awareness that He is always there, He always cares, and He always has a plan. When my confidence in His plan is being tested, where is my focus? When my hope that He will deliver, heal, and salvage wavers, do I walk away or do I trust in the ‘evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1b)?

- True faith is not in a hurry and will wait on God.
- True faith keeps vision on the Source of life as He leads down “paths of righteousness for His name’s sake”(Psalm 23:3).
