“Don’t worry.” When you’re worried, it’s about the single most frustrating thing someone can say, isn’t it? With two words, they’ve just demanded the impossible. Except... we really don't have to worry. Jesus has it all under control.
Some of us believe because we see. Some of us believe because that’s what we were taught, and who are we to argue? Still others believe because they have studied history, philosophy, and other accounts from biblical scholars. A devotional on how it doesn’t much matter how we believe—what matters is that we believe.
As believers, we have the Holy Spirit within us as our guide to help us discern right from wrong and help us resist temptation. It may be a difficult choice, but it is a matter of choice to give in to temptation and sin, or to stand strong in our faith and resist.
