4-27-2013- I WANT TO BELIEVE BUT I CAN'T


"REMARKS"

I HAD AN INCIDENT HAPPEN YESTERDAY, THAT CONCERNED GIVING.

A MAN KNOCKED ON MY DOOR AND SAID HE WOULDN'T GET PAID UNTIL NEXT FRIDAY AND SAID HE HAD A WIFE AND KIDS AND WAS IN NEED OF MEAT AND MONEY, HE HAD CANNED GOODS.

I AM NOT A BIG MEAT EATER AND AS A SINGLE MAN, I DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ENOUGH MEAT TO HELP BUT I DID GIVE HIM SOME MONEY TO EASE HIS BURDEN.

THE ISSUE HERE FOR ME IS THIS, IF I HAD KNOWN ANYTHING ABOUT THE MAN AND HIS LIFE, I WOULD PROBABLY HAVE BELIEVED HIM AND WOULD GIVEN HIM MORE MONEY THAN I DID, JUST BECAUSE I COULD BELIEVE HIM AND WHAT HIS STORY WAS.

WHO KNOWS WHAT IS TRUTH ABOUT A STRANGER, WHETHER HE IS LYING, OR IS TELLING THE TRUTH.

I KNOW JESUS, YAH'SHUA, SAID TO GIVE TO ANYONE WHO ASKS OF YOU AND I ALWAYS DO THAT. AGAIN, THE ISSUE FOR ME IS, I WANT TO BELIEVE THIS MAN AND HIS STORY, BUT I CAN'T, SO, BECAUSE I CAN'T AFFIRM MY BELIEF IN HIM AND HIS STORY, HIS BLESSINGS FALL SHORT OF ITS POTENTIAL.

IS IT WRONG TO NOT TRUST A MAN?

NO, GOD, YAH'WEH, SAID TO NEVER PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE ARM OF FLESH, (MAN), BUT IN HIM.

ALWAYS GIVE TO THOSE WHO ASK OF YOU.

IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS GIVE A LITTLE, IF YOU BELIEVE, GIVE A LOT.
