Faith, Trust, Minus the Pixie Dust and add Jesus Spirit

FaithTrust.  Minus the pixie dust and replace it with the true power that lifts you high, the Holy Spirit.  Why do I ever doubt Him?  Why do any of us ever doubt Him?  Is it because there is a lack of "evidence" on God's part?  So be honest.  There isn't a SINGLE LACK OF EVIDENCE on God's part!!!!  IN fact, it is us who are the ones that are faithless, doubtful, and God looks down and says, "Hmm, lack of evidence that she believes."  So we are the problem, not God.  Not Jesus.  Jesus is the answer!  Is there a reason we complicate this till we are drowning in lies? 
Again, back to that trusting part.  You can complicate ANYthing in the entire cotton-pickin' world if you've already decided ahead of time that you aren't gonna believe it.  But if you decide you are going to believe in something that is a lie, then eventually that will backfire on you. Sooner or later. 
Oh the faithfulness of our God!  Oh the never-ending love!  His mercy that shines from morning till monring!  The love that is borne in my soul even when people hate me, I can LOVE them back!  Without Christ, without Jesus Christ in me, guys, that is IMPOSSIBLE!!  But BY His love, I can love my enemies. 

So why do we lack faith that the Bible is His Word?  Because we are forgetting one huge thing...
if you've repented and trusted Jesus,

You were spiritually dead

Every day you lived, you grew closer to Judgement day when you would be fairly sent to Hell, because of your sin.  God is Holy, no sin can be in Heaven with Him.  That means you.  That means me.

So, look at it this way....

All the little "band aids" that "man" tries to paste over our sin, they don't work.  Remember?  We're DEAD before Jesus saves us.  Can dead people do much?  Can dead people save themselves?  What if they tried REALLY hard?  Could they maybe save themselves then?
This is getting simpler and simpler, isn't it?

But God saw you, He saw that you were dead, headed to seperation from Him forever and BECAUSE of His HUGE LOVE....


in your place.

He's Jesus.

Jesus scooped you out of the grave, touched His lips to your mouth and gave you a single, breath of air.
His breath made your eyes flutter open, your heart started beating, color returned to your cheeks, you felt the strong, warm arms of His embrace encircle you and you did not doubt.  When you love someone, deeply love someone, does it matter to you what the critics will think?  Of course they'll think that way!  They don't love the person like you do....

Why do so many Christians get tripped up when critics scream lies?  Have they obeyed Scripture?  They ignore the Bible, and wonder why it's not working for them.  Hmmmm....

The love of Jesus is an unquenchable fire!!!  It cannot be denied! 

He will grow your faith by putting you in the fire, just like the silversmith refining his silver by holding it LONGER and LONGER in the fire. Man!  you may think, God, why are You doing this?  It hurts!
But He allows doubts to surface at times, giving us the chance, not so He can watch us fail and say, "I told ya so" but so He can be glorified when we fall on our knees, crying out, "Daddy!  Save me!  Oh Jesus!  Take away these doubts!  I love You! I am Yours!" 
He's growing your faith so He can be glorified greater through you.

'And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"

Go to your Daddy...and JUMP into His open arms

By faith.
