UNBELIEF – The Barrier to Experiencing God’s Love

My friends, in the next few weeks, we are going to consider some of the barriers hindering us from experiencing God’s love.  As we review these barriers, our prayer should focus on God helping us to overcome.

This week, we are going to focus on UNBELIEF.  One of the greatest sin we can commit is having unbelief in our hearts after we have received the good news of salvation. The Bible declares in Hebrews 3:12 that we should “See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God”.

Sometimes because of the situations, circumstances and events in our lives, Satan uses the tool of unbelief to question the goodness of God in our lives and hence cause us to sin against God.

Friends Instead of unbelief, we must:

  • Enter into the Rest of God – God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). Though our situation may look and feel dire at the moment, we must stay focused on the promises of God.
  • Focus on God’s ability rather than our ability – In our strength we cannot chart the course for our lives but with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).

Christ follower, instead of living in unbelief, abandon your life into the hands of God and watch Him take care of you.  If you are currently not a Christ follower, come and enjoy God’s promises for your life today.

All glory to God!
