Who Do You Believe?

Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. ~~ Romans 11:11 (KJV)

We live in an age of information. It’s available in print, over the airwaves, on our cell phones, everywhere. You can find something about anything or anyone.

This is a political year, so I googled “Trump lied” and “Hillary lied”. I came up with pages of references to the lies both candidates had told. But the sources of most of these references could be questionable.  Many of them were from newspapers espousing one candidate or the other. Therefore the “facts” in any of those stories need to be corroborated from independent and neutral sources.

Political years are rife with promises about taxes, about health, about welfare, about jobs, about national security. You name it; someone has promised something about it. Who do you believe? Who can you believe?

In fact, you can believe God. Sarah did, and the impossible happened. She judged him faithful who had promised.

You can believe the Word of God. It has stood for ages and has been proven true time and again.

You can believe the Holy Spirit. He speaks only what God speaks. Listen to Him. Cultivate an eager ear to hear what He would tell you. Make room for communing with God, listening to His words for guidance in your life.

Father, God,

We ask that You sharpen our ears to hear Your voice alone amidst the chaos of our overstimulated lives. Grant us the favor of quiet time with You. Speak simply and clearly that we might know Your will for our lives.

We ask in Jesus’ most precious name.

Amen.
