Obedience · Trust · Unbelief

unbelief…

Words in the current Bible study remind me this morning of a dark time of anxiety and unbelief…

We say, “Trust God,” yet we agonize privately over whether He can be trusted.

—Beth Moore, Children of the Day, 1 & 2 Thessalonians

Trust God… it’s easy to say… hard to do…

Evidence of unbelief… which is not trusting God… include… worry… anxiety… fear…

Is there evidence of unbelief in your heart…?

I walked through a deep darkness of anxiety for about a decade…
not a fun walk… but at the deepest point of the pit…
I realized… all my anxiety… all my fear…
came from a heart of UNBELIEF…

I didn’t believe Him…
I didn’t believe He was who He said He was…
I didn’t believe He had my best interest at heart…
I’m not even sure I believed He was good…
but… when I came face to face with the truth of my unbelief…
I began to choose to TRUST GOD…
through faithful obedience…

Steps of faithful obedience…
are the only cure…
for an unbelieving heart…

When we actually take God at His Word…
trust Him… and act on that trust…
that’s when life begins to change…

Faithful obedience…
is the surest… and fastest way…
to experience the freedom…
He says we have as Believers…

I dare you… challenge you…
ask Him today…
Where am I walking in unbelief…?

When He reveals your lack of trust…
take heart… take courage… take steps of faithful obedience…

He is not afraid of bad news;
his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
Psalm 112:7 ESV
