“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you of these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star” (Revelation 22:16).
Our faith is built from the testimony of others. We live life based upon the testimony of others. One cannot prove their love; they can only demonstrate it. A vow is made, and one believes and fulfills the vow. These days, that includes a signature on a piece of paper, but all these things are still based upon faith. We either believe what we have not seen, or we do not. If we believe, then we are assured that the hope within us will come to pass as the Lord has said.
In this day and age people want proof of all kinds of things. When it comes to history and relationships, no proof can ever be offered. There is only the testimony. That testimony is either true or not true. We either believe or we do not. There never has been, nor can there ever be a middle ground between the either/or of belief and unbelief. Do you believe the testimony of Jesus? Do you believe those who have shared that testimony with you?
Lord Jesus, help my unbelief. There are days when things are going well, and I hold on to Your promises. Then there are days when everything seems amiss and I’m not sure I can believe anything. Help me at all times to humbly walk with You knowing that only in You is there hope and an eternal future. You created me. That I believe. Sustain me now and always to remain a person of faith and conviction. Amen.
