It began in a Garden. One person said one thing, another said something different. Blame was plentiful. It was Satan. It was that woman. The Israelites nearing the Promised Land heard Moses’ reassuring words of what God was about to do but they didn’t want to hear what he said. If they did hear, their doubts and unbelief quickly overtook them.
But we play the same scenario in our own lives. Isn’t it true for you and me? We know what God has said but the waiting gets old, the prayers don’t reach the ceiling and our perseverance pitters out as the doubts come and then stay. Why our stubbornness to believe? Believing is choosing. When doubts fill our minds believing seems to be an option for fools. We go forward scoping out the land before us, we hear a good report but shrink back in fear. So often the choice is to listen to the still small voice when He speaks rather than the big voice that screams in my head. How often do I talk myself out of belief? He says “I can do _______.” And I say “I don’t think you can do______.”
Let’s go and open His Word. Let Him speak. Then let’s choose to BELIEVE what He says! He speaks only truth. What say you?
