Faith is a decision. You have to decide to trust in Jesus as much as you decide whether you will trust a bridge before you use that bridge to cross a river. If you do not TRUST Jesus then you will not be established. It is easy to say that you trust in God but your faith will be tested. If you really trust in Jesus you will obey Him and certain consequences will follow and then you will have to decide whether you will keep on obeying Him or whether you will backtrack, go back on your decision to trust Him. Jesus will take you into the impossible.
If you decide to trust Jesus for your health then you will be tested. When you get a symptom or a pain, what will you do? Will you go to the doctor or will you pray? Will you trust the doctor when He tells you:”If you don’t take that medication you will die.” or “You need surgery!” Will you believe Him or will you go and pray? Who do you trust in? Most people trust people. They trust the judgment and the diagnosis of the doctor. They trust in what other people say but they don’t trust in Jesus.
Jesus determines our life, not medication, not the doctor. Jesus determines whether you will be alive tonight or not. Do you trust Him or don’t you? Do you trust the medication? Most people will take their medication on the hour or else they think they are going to die. You won’t die, you will live IF you trust in Jesus. It is Jesus who keeps you alive, as long as you trust in Him and as long as He wants you around, but most people are living for themselves and not living for Jesus. Most people don’t have faith. Your faith will be tested.
If you stand for the truth and for your conviction you might lose your job. What will you do? Will you give in and go with your employer or will you rather prefer to be laid off, to be fired and to obey Jesus Christ? If your boss tells you to lie, what will you do? Will you lie because he told you to lie or will you refuse? Will you cross that bridge with Jesus and do you trust Him enough that you believe that even if you lose your job that Jesus is able to look after you and your family and your needs? Jesus said:”Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added to you.” Do you believe that? Do you really trust Jesus?
Without faith it is impossible to please God and your faith will be tested. It is only those who pass the tests and who endure until the end that will be worthy to enter the kingdom of heaven. Will you decide to trust Jesus or do you not trust Him enough to follow Him across that bridge?
May Jesus bless you.
