“You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.” – Luke 1:45 NLT
How do you know if you believe that the Lord would do what He said? The answer is simple: you act in accordance to what He promised. You step out on faith. Stepping out on faith is not an act of blind risk. It is a response of trust in the clear voice of God.
God says He will take care of you. If you believe that, you will do with your money what God says. God says sexual impurity will destroy you. If you believe that, you will trust Him to send you the right person at the right time. God says that marriage is ordained by Him. If you believe that, you will stay-put through the rough times. God says the anger of man does not bring about His righteousness. If you believe that, you will find healthy ways to resolve conflict.
Blessing comes to those who believe that the Lord will do what He said.
