Fully Persuaded 

Can We Really Trust Jesus? YES!



"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1)

Faith is being persuaded. God had promised Abraham a son when he and Sarah, his wife, were past child bearing age. But Scripture says, 19"And being not weak in faith, he (Abraham) considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: 20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness." (Rom. 4:19-22).

Since Abraham was a human, a person just like we are, then we can have the same kind of faith he had. You notice, Abraham's faith was in God and His timing. He did not send a seed faith offering; he did not try to send angels to make the promise come to pass; nor did he try to confess it into existence. He believed God.

Over the years, the preaching of God's Word has been so perverted, the truth is well hidden from so many. We must ask God to show us truth from His Word, not only as we study, but as we hear the Word preached. We must ask the Holy Spirit to constantly show us how to discern the true teaching from the false. Many fail to ask God to reveal His truth, not only during their private times of reading the Word, but as they read books or hear sermons. This could be a deadly mistake.

We must be willing to admit we could be wrong. Oh, how hard this is to do, but how can God teach us if we are so sure we already know everything? Many people do know a great amount from God's Word and are living in that knowledge. But even for those people, it is still a good idea to come to God as an empty vessel because there is always more to learn from God. Sometimes we must set aside other teachings and pre-conceived ideas and let God know about our hunger for truth. If we come to God with an honest heart, desiring His truth above all else, He will begin to confirm the truths you have and uncover the false doctrines you have accepted as true.

When we discover God's Word is a living, breathing, all powerful, life-giving Being called Jesus Christ, and His Word is forever settled in Heaven, the truth becomes all important. Without discovering the real truth about God's Written Word, we cannot know Jesus, for He and His Word are One. Trying to have faith in anything less than total truth will cause our spiritual lives to be utter failures. When we know Jesus personally, then we will be fully persuaded that what God has promised He is able to perform.

FAITH PLACED IN ANYTHING OTHER THAN JESUS CHRIST WILL NOT ACCOMPLISH DESIRED RESULTS

Faith is not a sudden burst of emotion, a funny feeling, a hunch, goosebumps, quivers, tingling sensations, but an attitude of heart. When you really know your trust is in Almighty God, then you know everything is okay. When Jesus said in Mark 11:22, "Have faith in God", He was saying since faith is the gauge of success in spiritual matters, we should be constantly having faith in God.

Faith should be the constant attitude of the mind and heart. Faith should say, "Lord, this problem may not turn out like I want, but you are in control. My need may not be supplied like I think it should, but you are in charge. You know what is best for me, therefore, I know everything will be okay; I know you will see me through. You said all things would work together for my good (Rom. 8:28)

Too many people are trying to have faith in things such as, healing, deliverance, finantial help, etc., instead of faith in Jesus. We don't have faith in healing, we have faith in the Healer. We must not try to have faith in a specific deliverance, we must have faith in the Deliverer. He is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2). In Him are all things. Look to Him to do what is best for you. Tell Jesus you want Him to be in complete control of your life and everything that touches your life and then let Him rule every day. You have placed the keeping of your spirit and soul in His capable hands, is not the keeping of your body, circumstances and life long care safe in His hands? Of course they are.

In fact, Christians have a command to be strong in the Lord, and in the power (strength, ability) of His might. And in I Cor. 16:13 we are commanded to watch, stand fast in the faith, act like people of God and be strong.

The hour is late and it is time to shake ourselves and start hearing what it is God would have us hear. Oh, there will always be those that would rather be entertained than learn the truth of God's Word. But, I believe, there are many that are sincerely seeking to walk with God in holiness, truth and spiritual victory. For those that have heard all the promises, been confessing them for years and have seen no results, I offer these words, not only as an eye opener, but a comfort.

There is nothing wrong with you or your faith. It has just been placed in something less than the total truth of God's Word.

Faith is idle when circumstances are right, only when they are adverse is one's faith in God exercised. Faith, like muscle, grows strong and supple with exercise.

























I wish for you the faith to say, "I am fully persuaded"











God Bless You!
