It's not about making a point…let's make a difference

Belief or Unbelief

I don’t know a single Christ follower that doesn’t question the very existence of God at times. When I start to have problems and wonder if everything is going to be OK, I am quickly reminded of all of the times I worried about life only for it all to turn out just fine…but I still struggle.

Paul said this in Romans 7 14-15 ‘So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin. I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.’ Paul demonstrates we all struggle regardless of our background or experiences. This exemplifies our need to walk daily with the Lord.

I know I can trust Him, He has proven faithful time after time. I also know the enemy waits in the shadows to strike out at us. There are days all I can do is ask the Lord to forgive my unbelief.

Blessings

Belief or Unbelief
by Os Hillman

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

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”? Ask God to increase your level of trust so that your actions match up with one who believes every day.
