“Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water” Gen 21:19
Hagar has been thrown out of her home with her son and now, in the desert, she has run out of water and hope – She is totally negative discouraged & ready to die.
When we are discouraged we become blind to real answers right in front of us. Because of discouragement Hagar couldn’t see the well which was right next to her all the time.
Faith sees answers in spite of the problems. Even when we are in despair we can ‘switch on’ our faith, speak the promises of God & our eyes will be opened to opportunities, possibilities & solutions.
Vision and hope and strategy come to the heart of faith.
