Day 1: Believe It Or Not


Is it easier TO BELIEVE or TO NOT BELIEVE?

Think about it.

Really think about it

when

DOUBT is right before you

because you see

THE RED SEA

and

you have to cross,

but you don't know how to swim.

BUT then

MOSES parts the RED SEA,

because

THE GOD that

MOSES BELIEVES told

MOSES

that HE would part the sea.

And all MOSES had to do was to

BELIEVE enough

in order to do what GOD asked HIM to do.

Because BELIEVING is

an action of

OBEDIENCE~

"Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground" (Exodus 14:16).

So, what if MOSES DOUBTED GOD?

Would he have raised his staff and stretched out his hand

over the sea to divide the water?

I don't think so,

which would have ruined this great

MIRACLE in the bible.

I am glad that I wasn't MOSES,

as I would have

not only questioned GOD to how HE was going to part the sea,

but I would have had to have 1000 questions answered before

I TRUSTED GOD enough to raise my staff and hands.

In the amount of time it would have taken me to question GOD,

the sea would have been parted

if I just BELIEVED.

RAISE YOUR STAFF AND HANDS AND GOD WILL ______________!

What PROMISE do you need TO BELIEVE GOD for,

or better yet,

Where is DOUBT making you question one of

GOD'S promises for you,

that HE is asking you TO BELIEVE?

Hmm.

You either BELIEVE GOD or you don't.

Do you need to raise your staff and your hands in

THE TOTAL SURRENDER OF BELIEF

so that you WILL EXPERIENCE the parting of your

RED SEA of

Anxiety

Despair

Disappointment

Fear

or

________________.

Well,

GOD parted my RED SEA of DOUBT

by revealing to me that

DOUBT is REBELLION.

Yup,

DOUBT DOUBTS GOD'S WILL.

Let that soak in.

For what if MOSES DOUBTED,

would the RED SEA have swallowed the Israelites?

Hmm.

"For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind" (James 1:6)

Therefore

let's

PUT INTO PRACTICE

CHALK TALK 101~

BELIEVE!

Will you BELIEVE GOD that you will be

FILLED WITH

"THE PEACE OF GOD [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds

in CHRIST JESUS"

if you

PUT INTO PRACTICE HIS WORD that says~

"Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to GOD"

(Philippians 4: 6-7).

What are you ANXIOUS about that you

WILL SURRENDER TO GOD

by BELIEVING

that HIS PEACE WILL

overwhelm you,

despite your RED SEA?

It is so very simple

when we just

"BELIEVE FOR IT"

(listen to the song below)
