683rd -- Message On Believing God


I hope you are doing well and are in the best of health. I am doing very
well and am thankful for another day that God has given us. Even though we
sometimes go through struggles and hardships, we must remember to be 
thankful for this day that we are alive. Things have been going well for
me and the Ministry because I believe the Lord has kept His hand on my life
leading me to where I should go next. As long as we keep God first and 
follow His leading wholeheartedly; the Lord will do extraordinary things 
with each of our lives. The main thing that's required is obedience. 
Everything else, the Lord will supply. (Psalm 118:24) (Philippians 4:19)

The Lord has spoken to my heart to write a message on believing God and 
trusting in His everlasting Word. I was reading the book of Jeremiah 
recently and noticed the many instances that God spoke to Jeremiah to tell
the people including Kings and officials of that day what the Lord wanted
them to do. As I was reading, I found a revelation truth that I had not 
thought about before. Why did God speak to Jeremiah to tell the people 
what He had said? Why didn't God Himself speak from the heavens to tell 
His people what He wanted them to do? I believe the answers to these 
questions will better equip us to follow the leading of the Lord and trust
that God knows best and has even given us His everlasting Word to live a 
life of triumph and victory in Him. (Romans 3:4) (Isaiah 30:21) (Proverbs 2:2)

Throughout the book of Jeremiah we find many instances when God speaks to
Jeremiah to tell this person or that person what the Lord wants for them to
do. The Lord then gives those people the option to either believe what 
Jeremiah has said and do what God wants for them to do or to not believe 
and do the opposite of what Jeremiah had instructed under God's leading. I
believe the Lord gives the option because He has given us all free will to
do what we want. The Lord will not force us to follow Him, but the 
consequence of our rebellion is our sole responsibility and we will reap 
the harvest of our rebellious seeds. (Jeremiah 38-40) (Joshua 24:15)

Another reason I believe God spoke to Jeremiah to tell His people what He
wants is because it takes faith to move forward on what someone else had 
instructed. If God spoke from the heavens, there would not be one person
who could doubt that God spoke and all would obey; therefore negating free
will. A prophet speaking in that time is very comparable to the Bible in
this time. We have to believe by faith that God’s Word is true and will 
come to pass just as He said it would. It is our own free will to either
believe and accept or not believe and reject. On our Judgment Day we will
have no excuses and no one to blame but ourselves. (Hebrews 11:1-3) (John 1-3)

We must remember that God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of
great kindness. He wishes for our success and victory in life and has 
given us the keys to move forward in the positive direction. A scripture
that comes to mind is found in Isaiah 1:19-20 “If ye be willing and 
obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel,
ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken
it.” The Lord simply wishes for us to be obedient to His word so that we
may live life victoriously. Only a fool would disobey this command because
the end result is clearly written. (Joel 2:13) (3 John 2) (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Most of Jeremiah’s prophetic messages to the people had to deal with their
obedience to the Lord. Time and again Jeremiah warned the King's, 
governors and lay people who lived in the towns where Jeremiah spoke of the
dangers that would come upon them if they continued with their rebellious 
ways. Some of the times the people listened to Jeremiah and repented 
before the Lord and God graciously forgave them and received them unto 
Himself again, but most times they refused to obey what Jeremiah had said 
under God's leading and suffered the consequences for their disobedience 
and rebellious attitude towards the Lord. (Jeremiah 18:8-10;8:6-18;15:6-9)

Let us learn the lessons of those who came before us and see that it is to
our benefit to listen to the Lord and follow His Commandments. God has not
given us these rules of life to hinder our joy and happiness, but rather He
has given them so that we may live peaceably among ourselves and neighbors
and be filled with the peace and joy of the Lord that surpasses all 
understanding. The Lord Jesus says in John 10:10
“The thief cometh not, 
but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might 
have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Trust God with 
your life and follow His commands because when you do, your life will be 
blessed and favored of the Lord and the desires that are in your heart will
be given unto you. (Philippians 4:6-7) (Habakkuk 3:19) (Psalm 37:4)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that 
cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them 
that diligently seek Him.”

Romans 3:3-4 “For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make 
the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but 
every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy 
sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

Proverbs 2:1-6 “My son, if thou wilt receive My words, and hide My 
commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and 
apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, 
and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, 
and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the 
fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth 
wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against 
you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: 
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou 
mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that 
thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy 
days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy 
fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
