He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
But I am also beginning to realize how many times I am not a believer. There are many moments when I don't really believe that:
- Jesus is enough to get me through the day
- I am loved with an everlasting love
- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
- The joy of the LORD is my strength
I see how easy for my heart to quietly slip into a state of unbelief and a state of uneasiness. And in these quiet moments, my heart actually forgets that I have God himself living inside my heart, working out his good and perfect will.
In order to really believe day by day, we need to fight for it. We need to renew our minds, and constantly remind ourselves that he has saved us.
But be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.
