Trusting God Sincerely & Taking Refuge in Him

trusting god sincerely

In Psalm 34:8, we find God continually inviting us to His boundless love and grace. “O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” Making God your shelter in this life has an added incentive of blessedness. The “Lord is good” if you will just decide to “taste and see” the experience. Sincerely trusting God and taking refuge in Him by faith open the door of Heaven’s blessings. This inwardness we venture to call as faith experience only starts to develop after hearing and meditating upon God’s blessed promises. “For this reason,” wrote the apostle Paul, “we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.” (1 Thess 2:13) Sincerely trusting God, therefore, is only possible if you hear the Word of God and it begins to perform “its work in you who believe.”

Spiritual Stability of Those Applying Christ’s Word

What is spiritual stability? This query seems unimportant or irrelevant for the unsaved floods of people. They don’t have time for the God of the Bible—not until hunger, disease, or the mystery of death breaks through their lives! Their obsession with the cares of this life deceives them to love themselves more than God.

Heavenly Residents

One good news we love to listen again and again is that we will be heavenly residents assuredly in the hereafter because of Jesus Christ. Paul, the apostle, wrote about it: “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Phil 3:20) It does not matter if one had been living the life of a thief or a murderer for a long time before one followed our Lord. It does matter if one is a stick-in-the-mud sinner because all human beings in heaven since time began were true blue sinners irrespective of the weight of their wickedness and age level at death. Don’t get me wrong—continue reading, please!

Annoyingly Persistent Prayer is What God Requires

annoyingly persistent prayer

Of an annoyingly persistent prayer: Who can do it? David’s prayer to God for the recovery of his sick son with Bathsheba is one biblical example of a persistent prayer. The Bible stated that the child “was very sick. David, therefore, inquired of God for the child; and David fasted and went and lay all night on the ground. The elders of his household stood beside him in order to raise him up from the ground, but he was unwilling and would not eat food with them.” (2 Sam. 12:1b-17) Only the real believers can do such agonizingly persistent prayer!

Flawed Belief System Before Learning Real Christianity

flawed belief system bythisverse

Of the judgment after death (mentioned in Hebrews 9:27) versus our typical flawed belief system. The second part of Hebrews 9:27 teaches that “after this [death] comes judgment.” We find three important points from this Scripture, namely: 1) That there will be a JUDGMENT; 2) That there will be a JUDGE, and; 3) That there will be LIFE AFTER DEATH to be JUDGED. Amazing, indeed! For only four words namely, “after this comes judgment,” we discover three very satisfying truths about who we are and what will become of us. True, there is life beyond the grave awaiting divine judgment and, of course, there will be a Judge.

God’s Way Leads Us to the Right and Safe Path

God's way leads us away from fanaticism

God’s way leads us to the right and safe path. Our life, being God-given, must always string along the right route for it was not designed for cut and try or hit and miss existence. Let’s perpetually fix in the mind that “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
