After years of being a doubter, I finally decided to believe God at His word.
Imagine telling a friend of yours how you are going to do something for him, help him, or serve him in some capacity. Could you imagine your friend saying, “I don’t believe you. Even if you’ve done it before, I still don’t believe you”?
It would probably hurt your feelings.
You just want to help your friend, but he doesn’t believe you. He says, “Your word is not good enough.”
Every time we doubt God’s word, we are telling Him the same thing. We say, “God, I can’t believe you at your word.”
When we can’t believe God at His word, we really miss out on what He has for us. God still does what He says He’s going to do because His promises are irrevocable, but we miss out on the joy of the relationship.
What if you continued to do for your friend what you promised, but your friend still never believed you?
Think about God from this perspective: He’s just looking for someone to believe Him at His word. Are you that person?
