Winsome Wednesday - Believe It!

Do you ever have that moment when you have a choice to believe the Word of the Lord, or..... run in the other direction? I think sometimes we choose to believe God's word when we get to that point when we don't have any other option!

Recently, a huge thing came to a head!  And I had a choice to believe what God had said to me through His word, through His children.... or I could hide myself away and hope for the best. I think with my mouth I spoke belief but in my heart, and in my head I felt like I was hanging over a cliff edge, holding on for dear life, hoping hoping hoping.....


Just before this event, I came upon a scripture that gave me great peace in this circumstance.
2 Tim 2 v 13: If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself. Amplified

God knows that it is difficult for us to just jump over the edge in faith. He wants us to keep trying, but He understands that it is difficult. All I can say to this is that I am extremely humbled by the fact that God holds open His arms to me despite my lack of faith. In my circumstance, God did exactly as He said He would in His word. I am still doing spiritual cartwheels in amazement and great joy.  Solely because my God is great and He is faithful and He does as He says He will do  (Numbers 23v19: God is not a man that He should lie, not a son of man that He should change His mind. Does He speak and not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?).

My encouragement to you is to believe God's word for you.  He can be trusted!  He will do as He says He will do.  Just remember to do what He wants you to do, and that is to love Him, praise Him and TRUST Him.

God bless
Tracy

  1. Tonight I am choosing to believe God's word that He will never leave me nor forsake me. Yes, and I will trust Him.

  2. Dear Tracy
    I once read a book of Wayne Jacobson, He Loves Me, where he said a true thing. Coming to the end of ourselves, and we learn to take that step into the unknown, is the best place to be!! But not the nicest place at all! We like security, even if it is false security! I had to ask for grace upon grace to really believe that our Lord Jesus is the only true security we have in this world. Thanks for being our hostess again.

  3. That step of faith isn't always easy! Reminds me of a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." Sometimes it is just easier to play it safe and (as you said) run in the other direction! How delighted He is in us when we do trust and take that "first step"! :)

    Love you girl; thanks for another week at Winsome Wednesday! :)

  5. Trust spells easy, but it is a hard lesson to learn, for sure. Somehow it seems we keep thinking God will not come through... silly, right :)

  6. Your post is such a confirmation of what God's been telling me and something I've been praying about for months is coming to a head this morning... so I truly needed the blessing of this word! Thank you! This about His word being true in all circumstances is what I am wanting to encourage readers to know on my blog too... :)

  8. I think about that too: What if I really, really believed all the Word was true, and lived like it?

  12. Amen!! Such a good encouragement. I love Beth Moore's quote: “We’re going to have to let truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us. ”
