Trust & Obey, For There’s No Other Way…

Though we may sometimes doubt the truthfulness of God’s Word, question His motives in decreeing it, or lack an understanding of how it could come to pass, we will, in the end, see one of two things play out: 1) We will either trust in His Word and find that it, even when tested, always “proves true” and thus reap the blessings of it as we go through life or 2) intentionally keep its vitality at a distance as we search for “enough proof” of its credibility and "enough motivation" before trusting it, only to find that it ultimately “proves true”, and had we only trusted it sooner, we would have been benefiting from its power instead of reaping the consequences of denying it.
