Psalms 37:3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
For some of you reading this today, perhaps it's time to rely totally on the Word of God instead of what you think looks good. Faith is total reliance on God and His Word.
Stop trying to fix that problem yourself. While you’re still trying to figure it out, you’re still trying to work it out. While you’re still trying to plan it out, you’re still trying to find a way to cause it to happen out of fear that you won’t get it. And that is not acting in faith. Then you will end up having what you fear and not what you do actually believe for.
Fear can never be allowed to be the controlling factor in any decision you make. Why would a single Christian person consider an unsaved person as a partner? If you’re considering the unsaved person it's because you are full of fear that God won’t provide the mate you want. When you settle for less than what God’s Word says, you will get the full expression of everything the devil said, because he will accommodate you.
That devil will see that you’re not in the rest of God, that you’re not in faith, and he’ll send you that which you think is good. He’ll send you that person or that proposition that will seem to be everything you could dream of, and usually, if it’s too good to be true, it usually is.
You need to be especially careful in relationships that may lead to a marriage because I have seen so many people go off the tracks by being with unsaved people too much. Remember if you hang around with doubters you will end up doubting. You will become like those you spend time with. You know it is against God’s word, because He still said, “Don't sin.” God knows you are human and He said not to yoke yourself with those who don’t know Him. Then He gave you the Holy Ghost so that you didn’t have to rely on your humanness but you can rely on the anointing of the Holy Ghost to direct you.
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
So you can enter into the rest of God. Decide that you will obey God at all cost, despite what the situation appears to be. Whatever price you must pay, be willing to pay it, and stand on the Word of God. And you’ll find you have rest for your soul. It is worth it in the long run.
My new book HOW TO HANDLE DEPRESSION is being professionally published and will be up for sale on Amazon and on Barnes and Noble very soon.
Depression can be such a terrible illness that causes people to be despondent and they don’t understand why. Many times they become unreasonable with family and friends and they end up being isolated because their loved ones do not understand. This book is a study from God’s Word on the matter on depression and can help those who are willing to be helped. The study is through Psalm 42 & 43 in David's life. It will retail at $12.99 and can be pre-ordered from me if you wish to and I will pay the postage.
