2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by site… Some find it easy sometimes to have faith for salvation, but then hard to have to live by faith. But really they are one in the same. If we believe in Him it has to be for everything. Our eternal life and this life. These are not separate. He is either Lord or He isn’t. His ways are not our ways, He just asks us to trust Him. But we think we know better. Some even tell themselves that God will overlook their decision to disobey because He knows we are sinners and knows we will sin and, that He forgives us because we’ve accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior. But He doesn’t play our mental games. He and His Word are perfect, complete and unchangeable AND trust worthy. We all need to trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. This may be the highest form of worship.
We need to give up what we “feel” we have to have or do in order to trust Him with the outcome. Whatever it is, demonstrates our faith, love and devotion to Him. He is trustworthy. He has proven Himself over and over to me, because He loves you and me. Have a great day.
