I just finished reading Rebecca Brown’s book, Becoming A Vessel Of Honor*, and one of the things that challenged me was the question of whether or not I trust God. Her stories are incredible, to say the least, and the revealed power of God is unquestionable. In one part, she says that God asked her whether she was going to believe Him or, essentially, call Him a liar. That hit home for me, because I often question whether God will do things.
I call Him a liar when I don’t act on the truth that He states. For example, if He says He forgives us, and then we act like we’re still under condemnation, then we call Him a liar. More challenging, if He says that He gives us authority and armor so that we can stand against the attacks of the enemy, and we don’t use it or we question if it works, then we call Him a liar. I struggle with this a lot. I wonder if He delivers me when He says He does, I wonder if He will provide when He promises He will, I wonder all kinds of things even though they’re things He promises.
So do I believe Him? If I say I believe Him, do I act as though I believe Him? Do I trust His word and live out my redemption, my deliverance, my provision?
What about you?
