Believe and trust

May 22, 2017

     "What if" is a saying that is used a lot.  Here's an example: "What if I get tired?"  Let's say you want to stay up until midnight and you know you might get tired.  By saying "what if," you mean that you don't know for sure if you're capable of staying up until midnight. Here's another example: Let's say someone says they are going to buy you something and you say, "What if he doesn't?" You are saying that you are not completely sure if he is going to buy you that item or not.
     Here's another example: Let's say you said, "What if the Bible isn't true?" You are saying you are not completely sure.  Do we really believe that the Bible is true? Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose."  Now lets say you said, "What if all things don't work together for my good?"  Then you are not completely sure if this verse is true, or really any verse! You are not really trusting and believing in God and what His word says.  If God says something will happen, then it will. 
      In Acts 1, when Jesus told the apostles to stay in Jerusalem for the promise of the Father, the apostles didn't doubt, they stayed in Jerusalem and they received the Holy Spirit.  They believed and obeyed and what Christ promised was true. Just as Jesus told them, we need to trust and believe in the Lord.
