Acting In Unbelief

By Mack | August 1, 2008

Recently, I have been thinking about how people who call themselves “Christian” seem to be unwilling to believe in the word of God.  I know we all have doubt from time to time, but it should be the exception, not the rule.  I often hear it from “church folks”, who are scared of being sued, or scared that something bad may happen in the church, or just scared to take a chance on life.

How can we as Christians, constantly run and hide from all the scary things in life.  I don’t think we are called to play it safe. We love ourselves too much. Face it, you have been bought a very steep price. You are not your own.

I implore you, think about all the things you are worried about right now, and decide which of those things God can’t handle.  Are there any?  If so, you need to seriously consider your level of belief in the God of the universe.  He is not wringing His hands, hoping things will come out all right, trust me.

Trust Him, for once in your life, give Him your trust.  I am talking to myself now, but if it applies to you, then you know it.

I was reading this devotion today by AW Tozer.  Read it.  Think about it. God is closer than you think.

Human sin began with loss of faith in God.

When our mother Eve listened to Satan’s sly innuendos against the character of God she began to entertain a doubt of His integrity and right there the doors were opened to the incoming of every possible evil, and darkness settled upon the world. The Bible talks about mans being alienated from and an enemy to God.

Should this sound harsh or extreme you have only to imagine your closest personal friend coming to you and stating in cold seriousness that he no longer has any confidence in you. I do not trust you. I have lost confidence in your character. I am forced to suspect every move you make. Such a declaration would instantly alienate friends by destroying the foundation upon which every friendship is built. Until your former friends opinion of you had been reversed there could be no further communion. Only a restored faith could bring about a restored friendship.

Now, it is well known that people do not go boldly to God and profess that they have no confidence in Him, and no one except the rare professional unbeliever is willing to witness publicly to his low view of God. The frightful thing, however, is that people everywhere act out their unbelief with a consistency that is more convincing than words.
