Pearl 300: Evidence

TOPIC: Faith and Logic

"Believe me when I say that I am in the Father
and the Father is in me; or at least believe on
the evidence of the works themselves" - John 14:11.

In this verse Jesus said that faith is within the realm of reason, saying if you can't believe based on who I am or what I say, then base your belief on what I do. When you see Jesus' mighty works, you should conclude that He is worthy of your faith, so to speak. So faith is not a feeling but can be a logical decision based on God's goodness and grace. Take a moment today to reflect on God's goodness and then make a decision today to trust Him in some area where you have allowed fear and doubt to rule in your mind. Where in your life do you have enough evidence of God's goodness that you can make a decision to trust Him regardless of how you feel?

Lord, I choose to trust You today because of the overwhelming evidence of the work You have done in my life and in the lives of those around me. In light of this evidence, I put my faith in You, not just for salvation, but for the fulfillment of the promises You have made to me through Your Word. Amen!
