Our unbelief does not come out and say an honest No to God. We know better than to be so blatant. Our unbelief cloaks itself in evasions. But faith is decisive, clear, definite, blunt, wholehearted. A. W. Tozer, The Counselor (Camp Hill, 1993), page 116, defines the difference:
“Unbelief says: S0me other time, but not now; some other place, but not here; some other people, but not us. Faith says: Anything He did anywhere else He will do here; anything He did any other time He is willing to do now; anything He ever did for other people He is willing to do for us! With our feet on the ground, and our head cool, but with our heart ablaze with the love of God, we walk out in this fullness of the Spirit, if we will yield and obey. God wants to work through you!”
Wherever you and I are today, God is here. He wants to work through you and me. Let’s call out our evasions as unbelief, let’s forsake the script we thought God would follow, let’s offer ourselves to him for his purpose. Right here, right now, is holy ground. Let’s yield and obey and see what only God can do.
