Has God ever told you anything? Have you ever read the Bible and had some part stand out and get your mind spinning? Perhaps you have had an encounter with truth. Hearing truth will make you do a double-take, turn around perplexed and say, “Really?” Truth will uproot your feet, launch you forward and give you an incredible choice: to believe these words or not.
Reality is really much better than we know. How do I know that? I know my God. He never ceases to amaze me. All the time, I end up enthralled with something I once thought was unlikely. I exclaim, “Wait a minute, You actually are that good? I thought You were only this good, but You’re that good!” God is better than we know. At every turn of our hearts, we see another testimony of His goodness.
God’s Word is Truth. In His Word, He has given us many great promises. Those promises are true, because God is completely trustworthy. We can believe them and not be disappointed! God really does forgive sins. He really does want to be close to us. He really does distribute joy as a free gift. May we dig deep into the Bible. May we listen intently to the Spirit and believe His words, for there is life and peace in abundance.
“You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”–Luke 1:45
