Pastor’s Corner: A Reason to Believe

Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

In Matthew 8:13, Jesus says:  “Go.  It will be done just as you believed it would.”  And his servant was healed that very hour.

Many people say that they ‘trust in God.’  Yet many do not really believe that He will do as He has said.  Here in this verse, what Jesus declared, happened.

The major key here – is to believe God can and will do what He says.  In Psalm 56:4, “In God I trust, I will not be afraid.”  Also, in Proverbs 3:5 we read, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.”

Going over to Isaiah 25:9, we find these words:  “We trusted in Him and He saved us.”  It is our past experiences that prove what God says can always be trusted, and He will always give us a reason to believe in Him.

So then:  Go!  As you believe, you will receive!
