Truth is sometimes hard to believe and there are times I find myself doubting it. My heart knows what I read in the Bible is God’s Word and is truth but my head will question it. What is written in Isaiah my heart believes without question, and my head believes it too, but not without questions.
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
Isa 43:1b nlt
God has called me by name. He knows my name! And He says “you are mine.” He doesn’t suggest that I belong to Him He states it. There is no question it’s a fact I belong to Him! Not only do I belong to Him, He paid for me. I may not be worthy of Him but He doesn’t think I am worthless. Amazing.
“From eternity to eternity I am God.
No one can snatch anyone out of my hand.
No one can undo what I have done.”
Isa 43:13 nlt
My heart knows without hesitation or difficulty that this is true. In my heart I accept the fact with confidence and certainty. But my head, my hard stubborn head is at odds with my heart. It contradicts my heart, it argues and debates what the heart knows. Always wondering…what if? When my thoughts begin to get confused I remember what Paul wrote to the Philippians;
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize
for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things.
If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you.
But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.
Phil 3:14-16 nlt
