Lately, as I have found myself indulged in things obvious to me not pleasing to our holy God, my mind has wonder to thinking of the spirit or life of unbelief, and people’s hatred and ignorance towards God.
Unbelief is arguably the worst sin one can commit. If a man or woman dies without ever coming to salvation (belief by faith), they are forever doomed, destined to be separated from God for eternity. But what about Disobedience? How does that concisely correlate with unbelief; specifically as it relates to a Christian? We know that an unbeliever will most assuredly be disobedient, he/she has no knowledge of God and therefore has no familiarity with godly conviction.
My experience has been sad of sorts because my disobedience to God is resulting from fear, impatience, and probably imsecurity (I haven’t sorted that out just yet). Apart of my life I am finding it hard to trust God, and I hate it. It could be a plotted attack of my emotions and thought headed by the enemy of God, or my fleshly desire to do wrong. Either way, I want to do right. I want godly relationships, a godly marriage and lifestyle.
What makes this situation so deeply gracious is that God encourages me to continue on, to not give up, and to keep praying.
Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Thank you, Lord!
