John 10:38 “But if I do his work, believe in the evidence of the miraculous works I have done, even if you don’t believe ME. Then you will know and understand that the FATHER is in ME, and I AM in the FATHER.”
Connecting with Crimson!
Since CHRIST said it, sufficient it is for belief yet some souls seem to wrestle within.
They choose to agree only with their heart’s questions instead of HIS words which are sovereign.
But HE knows the heart in advance of such queries; redirecting their doubts to HIS works.
Completing such healings which none could do also; so that they could compare with HIS WORD.
“Believe then MY works if no faith be yet in thee. See Scripture prophetically open!
For the ONLY Provider of healings and life is MY FATHER WHO sent ME to show them!
So closely observe everything I have authored within both MY WORD and MY deeds.
As such, there is none with excuse who denies ME. Therefore! Simply bow…and BELIEVE!
As HIServant reminding this soul that HE has indeed providing abundantly beyond what we could ask or think for proof,
Devotional: Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto JESUS the Author and Finisher of our faith; WHO for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of GOD.”
Believing in CHRIST may be the initial force which catapults us into Faith. But others may come at it from a more analytical approach…and CHRIST comments to such souls as the UN-believing Pharisees were.
When we map and compare Scripture to all HE did, no one else in all of History comes up on the radar even as a competitor. None. Healing the lame, the sick, the blind, the deaf, the wounded, the dead, those with an incurable disease and so forth.
So when HE told the religious rulers of the time that they needed make this comparison to the very words they clung to from Moses who spoke of HIM; HE was helping them connect the dots.
HE was quite directly connecting their questions to the answers HE provided through HIS actions.
So too such rampant Doubts and Disbelief overwhelm many a soul who only looks at CHRIST skeptically, rarely opening HIS WORD while doubting HIS finished work on our behalf. Oh that we would quickly surrender each time our Flesh rises up to accuse.
“Where are you, LORD?”, “YOU said YOU love me but then I have to go through this?”, “How in the world is this fair to me?” and so on and so forth.
This life, Beloved, is a vapor. It does not mean we care less and ignore it NOR does it mean that we allow more focus on the waves than HIS gaze.
Look unto the AUTHOR and FINISHER of your faith, my friends. Yea, HIM WHO for “the Joy set before HIM endured the Cross”! The JOY! To redeem us! HE chose us…with Joy!
Now connect with HIS Crimson’s outpouring through Scripture and through life surrounding! Yea, quickly bend the knee…and BELIEVE!
Hallelujah! Amen and amen!
