So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised.
Are you sure of Jesus’ resurrection?
As a percentage, how certain are you that Jesus rose from the dead?
You might answer differently, but I’m 100% certain. I have no doubt.
So… this man - who claimed to be God and predicted His suffering, death, and resurrection - rose to life after 3 days. If I believe this 100%, doesn’t it put an exclamation point on every word He spoke? Doesn’t it punctuate every instruction and promise?
Which of Jesus’ words come to mind?
I am with you always. Do not fear. In this life you will have trouble. Everything is possible for him who believes. Don’t let your hearts be troubled; trust in God.
Since I’m 100% certain that Jesus lives, shouldn’t I live with complete trust? Theoretically, I don’t have to fear because He’s by my side. I can do whatever He calls me to do because of my confidence in Him. I certainly fall short.
Does your life reflect your level of belief? How can we increase our confidence in Him?
