Yesterday was a rather busy and crazy Sunday. But, as I went through both preparing for all of my obligations for yesterday and then proceeded through meeting them, I was continually faced with a powerful question.
Do I truly believe God’s Word.
My gut reaction is to say, “Of course I do! Why would I not?” But, when it comes down to the reality of some of the things I’ve been learning lately, do I really and truly believe them? If I do, then I should live them out.
Do I really believe what Paul writes in Romans 6 about being free from sin? Do I believe Jer 29:11 and Rom 8:28 and their promises of what’s best for my life? Do I believe what I read in Jer 1:9-10 recently about the power of God’s words in a simple man?
Yesterday morning I taught a Sunday school class about living in such a continual relationship with Christ that we don’t miss a beat when challenges arise. Last night I taught teenage girls about the incredible nature of prayer. Today I am wound up myself by the things I taught others. I am energized and enthused. I am hungry to truly live the things I taught.
I am challenged to not just say I believe God’s Word, but to live like it! Wow, what a life I could live if I were to do so! And that is the life I long to live!
