“And God said….” Genesis 3:1a
I’m sure you have seen the bumper sticker that says, “God said it, I believe it, that settles it.” (I know I have talked about this before -but I feel impressed to talk about it again.) It should read, “God said it, that settles it.” God’s word is settled; it is the truth whether you believe it or not. The fact that you believe it doesn’t make it true, neither does the fact that you don’t believe it make it untrue. God doesn’t need anyone to believe His word in order to make it the truth. As a matter of fact, at the beginning of creation when God said – He spoke and everything was created- there wasn’t one soul around to believe what God said…. but it was still the truth.
Believing God’s word doesn’t make it true… it is true already… it’s the truth. But what it does do is cause it to “work” in your life. When you believe it, you appropriate the blessings that are connected to it. In other words, you reap the benefits that come from putting faith in what God says. So, having established (and settled) the issue of the truth of God’s word regardless of whether anyone believes it or not, the question would be, “Are you going to believe it?” Are you going to take God at His word, trust what He says, put your faith, confidence, and assurance in it? If you don’t it won’t make it any less the truth, you just won’t enjoy the blessings and rewards that come from believing it.
