"The Gideon in me" - 04/01/14 - Judges 6-7
It isn't just Gideon, it is me too. And you. It is all of us.
How often do we throw back at ABBA - "If"?
There isn't any doubt within myself regarding Jesus. I believe with all I am He came into this world, became human, lived amongst the world, giving us the example the example we need to be Warriors for ABBA. I believe with all I am He was raised upon The Cross as The Ultimate Sacrifice for all sin. I believe with all I am He rose from the grave - He is Alive! I believe with all I am, My Savior, Jesus, overcame death and now resides with my ABBA in Heaven. I believe with all I am - He has saved me. I believe with all I am The Holy Spirit resides within me. I believe with all I am His Word is a personal love letter from Him.
Yet, how often is "if" in my reaction to Him? He instructs me not to worry and yet I do. He promises me He is in total control, yet there are times I doubt. He has assured me through His Word, throughout history He is in total control and all is for His Glory, yet how often do I believe my time, my way is better?
Just like Gideon, after all the amazing miracles ABBA preformed for and through him, he still threw up, "if". It baffles me how I am completely, without any hesitation, believing He is my Savior, yet I, in the next step, wonder "if". In reflection of my life, I see over and over the times He was and is there, and yet I sometimes cling to the "if".
Why is it I am able to have complete faith in the "big" things, yet not the day to day "small things". There is nothing more important than the salvation of my soul, yet I find the other things are what causes me to "if".
Or do the "Doubting Thomas".
There isn't a need for me to see the nail holes for me to believe He is the Savior of my soul - so why do I doubt, at times, He is The Savior for the day to day stuff of life.............
