Going to Battle for God Series
I hope you got to read the last two devotionals on "Going to Battle for God", where I have talked about believing, and going All-in for Christ. If you have not had a chance to read them, I hope you will you go back and do so soon.
The next letter in my acronym for BATTLE is "T". I have chosen the word "Trust" to help show us how we can be a better witness for Christ. Do you have difficulties trusting God in your life? I cannot stress enough, the importance of trust in our everyday Christian walk.
You have to be willing to trust God in everything you do. That includes your faith, your finances, and God's promises. Without trust, it leaves confusion and doubt. How can you be a true witness for Christ if you do not believe what you are reading or saying is true? Do you find things in the Bible that seem too impossible to believe? You believe Jesus is the Son of God and he rose from the dead, but did he really feed 5,000 with two fish and five loaves of bread? Either you believe the entire, inspired Word of God, or nothing at all. You do not have the authority to add or take away from what is written. Revelation 22:19 says, "And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the Tree of Life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll."
God says in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." So does it mean we are going to know everything about the Bible when we witness to an unbeliever? The answer is No! Remember when the disciples went to go follow Jesus? Did they know everything concerning God's ways? The disciples had to trust Jesus was who He said He was. It took His death for many to believe, but they did finally believe. You must trust the words God has given so that they can be applied when you need it.
Tomorrow I will be sharing about Truth. We will see how truth plays a major part in our witness for Christ. Do you always speak the truth? Do you believe what you read from the Bible is completely truthful without exaggeration?
