continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of…. (2 Ti 3:14).
There are times in my life when my heart wants to believe something wrong about God or try to convince myself that He’s not faithful, He won’t pull through, I cannot trust Him. Based on my present circumstances, one might say this makes sense, but based on God’s truth this is terribly wrong.
Whenever my heart and mind starts going to those places I always remind myself to look back. Look back on the faith that was instilled in me as a firm foundation. Look back on the faithfulness of God in my life, that I have experienced. Look back on all of the things God has done proving HImself faithful, good and trustworthy.
I know that this present moment might feel impossible and maybe even a bit discouraging, but be encouraged to look up, look back and believe in the truth of who God is for you today. Rest not in the doubt of your own mind, but in the promises of HIs word. Surrender your thoughts to His mercy and find grace for yourself. He is truly the God of impossible things and is not limited by our own understanding.
Lord, I believe, help my unbelief. I want to live fully alive in you and give glory to you in all things. Sometimes, my faith is weak. Sometimes, I doubt, but I want to have confidence, so today I will choose to believe you for good things, because you are so good to me, in Jesus name, Amen.
