Do you BELIEVE God?
Hebrews 11:31 “By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with the those who were disobedient [or unbelieving].”
Have you ever connected disbelief and disobedience? I hadn’t until this morning. How true is it though? When we BELIEVE GOD (not just believe in God), we make different decisions. When we BELIEVE HIS Word, HIS promises, HIS timing, HIS way, HIS love, HIS truth, HIS sovereignty…it drives and nourishes our obedience.
When we DON’T believe Him, then we find ourselves taking matters into our own hands, striving instead of surrendering, falling into sin, making our own idols, and growing in disobedience. Need proof? Just look at the entire journey of the Israelites in the old testament. My life is proof too.
Yesterday was Sabbath for me. It has been a LONG time since I have taken a full day to sit longer with Jesus, to separate myself completely from my phone, to unplug completely from all business activities, and to be fully present with family and friends. I needed to BELIEVE God when He says that He can and will sustain all things (Hebrews 1:3). That He holds all things together (Colossians 1:17). That God never fails (Joshua 21:45).
I felt God so strongly yesterday and am continuing to this morning. He is with me, and He is with you. It’s been a long time since I have really looked for Him that intently and I certainly don’t want to just be doing that on Sabbath days. I firmly believe that Sabbath influences the other 6 days of the week too. I pray this morning that you would genuinely confront yourself and ask yourself that question “Do I actually believe what God is saying?” If the answer is yes, your choices SHOULD look different from the world.
