Landing Spot
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread I'm Bill Crowder and I titled our reading landing spot
 the Impala a member of the Antelope family is able to jump up to 10 ft high and 30 feet in length it's an incredible feat and no doubt essential to its survival in the African wild yet in many Impala and closures found in zoos you'll find that the animals are kept in place by a wall That's merely 3 ft tall how can such a low wall contain these athletic animals it works because Impalas will never jump unless they can see where they'll land the wall keeps the Impalas inside the enclosure because they can't see what's on the other side
 as humans we're not all that different we want to know the outcome of a situation before we move forward the life of Faith however rarely works that way right into the church at Corinth Paul reminded them we live by faith not by sight Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew 6 your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven but that doesn't mean we'll know his outcomes beforehand living by faith means trusting his good purposes even when those purposes are shrouded in mystery
 in the midst of life's uncertainties we can trust his unfailing love no matter what life throws at us we can make it our goal to please him
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from 2nd Corinthians chapter 5 verses 6 through 10
 therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord for we live by faith not by sight we are confident I say and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord so we make it our goal to please him whether we are at home in the body or away from it for we must all appear before the Judgment seat of Christ so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body where they're good or bad
 let's pray
 so often father were frozen by uncertainty and fear we pray that you will guide our steps in the way you would have us to go trusting you for your good will to be done in Jesus name we pray amen
