Believing is an active verb

This morning, as I read my daily devotional in Beth Moore's study on John, I put something together in my mind and heart that really hit home: Just as salvation was a one-time act and is also a daily act, so believing was a one-time choice and is also a daily choice.

 
We cannot rely on our initial moment of belief to get us through each day. Yes, it took that very profound decision to change our lives, but we have to carry it out beyond that moment. It is a daily choice to actively believe Him - believe that He is good and that He is working out His will in our lives.

I don't want to believe like Thomas - only when I see Him and the ultimate outcome. I want to believe Him in every season of waiting.

And so, each day is another day to believe Him.

“Vision is the ability to see God’s presence, to perceive God’s power, to focus on God’s plan in spite of the obstacles.” ― Charles R. Swindoll
