I’ve come to rely on the wisdom that God promises to give liberally when we ask without doubting (James 1: 1-5). I have been helped and hurt by physicians. The FDA is only reliable to the extent of the data it receives. No physician is required by law to report any adverse effects of drugs to the FDA. It is volunteered. Whenever I have a physical condition I rely on my Lord Jesus Christ to direct me, and so I have found Him faithful to do it. He is the great physician and so I have come to rely on Him.
We live in a culture that desires an “instant fix”. But God’s way is not ours, and He has far more to accomplish in us then what we experience or see. The three scriptures that the Lord has given me to exercise in all circumstances are: (Philippians 4:4-7, Proverbs 3:5-6, and Isaiah 40:31/64:4) – Pray, Trust and Wait. If we get caught up in the net of trying to come to the knowledge of the truth through putting man’s remedies first, we will spin a web that will keep us forever entangled and frustrated. But God has promised to set us free by giving us the TRUTH – Jesus Christ. God’s Word says to “seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness, and all other things shall follow” (Matthew 6:33). He also promises to send us the Holy Spirit Who leads us into “all knowledge of the Truth” (1 Timothy 2:3,4).
I’ve learned one thing these 63 years, and it is this; if I trust God and acknowledge Him first, everything in my life works for Good. He has given us a simple solution, it is not hard- First recognize that you have sinned and have fallen short of what He wanted you to be. Ask His forgiveness and accept His “only” solution – Jesus Christ who paid the price for your sins so that you can be reconciled eternally to God the Father. Not only will you be eternally secure, but you will begin to live the abundant life that Jesus promised. You will learn to be content in every circumstance because you will find Him faithful to “work all things together for Good in your life” (Romans 8:28).
So the answer is not in having the perfect knowledge but to have a relationship with the One who is Perfect and loves you unconditionally- Be willing to let everything you know and understand go – and call on the One who not only created you and knows and loves you, but promises to restore you to Himself and make you a new creature in Christ Jesus. Read God’s love letter to you today- His Word. His Word will nourish, protect and cleanse you of all the lies you’ve heard before.
God’s prescription: Jesus Christ. He not only died for our sins but also He took upon Himself – “all our infirmities and diseases”(Isaiah 53:4). Read the Gospel of John in the New Testament, and ask God to reveal the Truth to you today. What do you have to lose? The Word (Bible) says that “there is a way that seems right to man, but the way leads to death”- eternal separation from God which is punishment (Proverbs 16:25). God is a Holy God and we cannot approach Him through our own means. We have to approach Him through His means; believing and accepting God’s Truth through “faith”. It is only faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ that pleases God because it is His “only” solution to all our problems. Jesus said, ” I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
May the Lord open your eyes and ears today to see and hear His Truth. These are not my opinions, they are God’s Word. And He has been faithful to demonstrate His Truth in my life and many others. I am a witness of His faithfulness. I am praying for everyone who reads this message. God is faithful to do it when you pray, trust, and wait for Him to reveal Himself in His time and in His Way. Trust in Him, today. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain? Doula Faith
