Belief or Unbelief 12-06-18

Praise the Lord for another day and another chance to spread the gospel. I’m going to ask a question this today that I don’t want and answer to. I know that seems little strange but you will understand in a second or two. Here it goes; who and what do you believe in? Give this some thought as I present the message.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Your Word is such a blessing and a comfort. Your promises give hope and joy to life. For as it says in 2nd Corinthians five: “Now I know that if the earthly tent I live in is destroyed, I have a building from You, God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile, I groan, longing to be clothed with my heavenly dwelling, because when I am clothed, I will not be found naked. For while I am in this tent, I groan and am burdened, because…I wish to be clothed with my heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now it is You, God, who has made me for this very purpose and has given me the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come….I live by faith, not by sight….I make it my goal to please You, Lord, whether I am at home in the body or away from it”. Help us Lord, to be content in this body while there is work left on this earth, and to please You while we look forward to that glorious reunion. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Belief or Unbelief

“Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.”Romans 4:3

I’m going to make a statement that is not going to sit well with some of you reading this message. You can be a believer yet act as though there is no God. Whenever you fret over life circumstances, you immediately demonstrate unbelief. Whenever you move out of fear or anxiety, you believe a lie about God’s nature.

Each day your actions affirm or convict you of your belief system. It reveals who the central focus of your life really is, you or God. It reveals who you place your ultimate trust in, you or God. It is one of the great paradoxes for believers. One day we can believe Him to move mountains. The next day we can question His very existence.

.Peter believed God and walked on water.

A sick woman touched the hem of His garment and was healed.

A Canaanite woman believed and freed her daughter from demon-possession.

In what circumstances do you act as an “unbeliever”? I have had to answer that question a number of times over the last few days. Ask God to increase your level of trust so that your actions match up with one who believes every day.

Quote of the Day

God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.

Elisabeth Elliot
