(1 Kings 19: 9, 11-13 Romans 9: 1-5 Matthew 14: 22-33)
Indeed, we are a Church Militant; we struggle each and every moment to make good lasting choices. Perhaps, it is in our best interest to go through all these ups and downs so that we may unravel the mysteries that surround us to know, love, and worship God. The desire to explore in order to know and understand who and what we are leads to an establishment of beliefs in God on our part, as we either affirm or negate the gift of FAITH we have meant to help us know, love, and worship God. God alone is the Ultimate recipient of all recognitions and acknowledgements; it is the otherwise that always leads us to denying and doubting God.
God is not what and how we think; rather, we are what and how we think of God since God is the SUBJECT and not the OBJECT of our thinking. Therefore, all our endeavors to know and understand our circumstances, which we technically refer to as SCIENCE, in conjunction with the gift of Faith, should lead us to a sound belief and a better understanding of the nature of God which we always take for granted. We do not need to go through major crisis or experience a miracle before we believe in God; even now, our very being is a cue for us to affirm the presence of God. The proper combination of faith and science eventually helps us to have a glimpse of the AWE and TRUTH, God. But this approach needs a total self-abandonment and trust to the rhythm of redeeming grace.
