Ask, Believe, Trust
Have you ever had a time in your life where you felt you messed up in living the Christian life? Just like the saying, “been there done that and have the tee-shirt”. I imagine if we are honest, we all have had a period in our life where we felt like we let God down.
When these times happen; our faith feels pretty weak, and we start doubting ourselves. There have been great men in the bible that have fallen much more. One that comes to mind is Peter. He denied Christ three times before the rooster crowed. This crushed his self-worth. There might be times your self-worth is crushed.
Don’t give up on trusting Jesus. Jesus came to forgive, restore, and strengthen us. Jesus restored Peter. Christ wants good things for us. It comes down to our faith and trust that we have in Jesus.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jesus said, that if we believe then we will receive whatever we ask from Him in prayer.
21 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Ask, Believe, Trust God. Develop a dependency in God and trust Him to provide and always be by your side.
