The most heart warming thing one of my friends says to me, when we are talking is "I believe you". I think next to someone professing love, this is the sweetest thing I could possibly be told. I probably should tell this friend this, as I have not done so yet, but it got me thinking there must be something about this statement that would touch God's heart, just the way it always touches mine. I am minded of the "without faith it's impossible to please God" verse (Heb 11:6) -
" But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]"
You guys know when we ourselves mention something twice, it's must be of some importance, when we mention it thrice, then it's critical that the warning/instruction be adhered to.
You won't even be a Jesus Christ follower in the first place if you didn't believe God. Is that possible? I think not.
Yeah, the work comes when we have to believe His word just like that, we are the smart generation, and believing God's word with not enough physical evidence seems dumb almost all the time or let's just say all the time. We want to see how it all lines up and our analysis should at least make some sense. Well, If we look at the faith hall of fame in Hebrews chapter 11, those guys didn't rely in physical evidence from God to believe Him. That's the same way my friend believes what I say, without seeing into my mind. I think thats because of the relationship that we have had, which means we need to keep our relationship with God alive, not running-on-life-support-alive, but proper bubbly alive. Not to say there are no life support times, but that should not be the modus operandi.
I bet God gets a mighty heart-throbbing feeling when we choose to believe Him, when we actually have not evidence to hold on to. His Word is Enough Evidence.
