“There is a dark chasm between belief and unbelief. It is known as IF.”~priest

“IF” may be the single most powerful word in your vocabulary.

I have believed in Jesus many years. It is likely you believe in Jesus. There are few who do not recognize Jesus. Most of those described will call themselves Christian. It seems believing is but a 1st step to enjoying a Christ centered life.

Many years ago, there was a man with a son who had incredibly bad seizures from an early age. They crippled him and there were times when the seizures drove him to wanting to kill himself. This may even describe you today. You might just rather be dead than go through what you are experiencing in life. You believe, but there is no relief…

This man had unsuccessfully sought relief for his son, likely many times in his life. Nothing seemed to help, but he continued to hope and thought, “If only…”

Today would be different.  Today, he would see Jesus.  He pushed his way through the crowds surrounding Jesus and cried out, “If you can, then heal my son!” Jesus said, “IF?…” The man took an incredible leap of faith over the chasm of doubt, known as “IF” and shouted,”I believe!”.

This was a miraculous event in the man’s life. The healing was good, but the miracle was in the leap the man took across the chasm of “IF”. No man comes to the Father but by Jesus. It is Jesus that enables you to take the leap across the chasm and into the arms of the Father. there is great healing in His arms. Miraculous healing found only through Jesus.

Pray today for God through Jesus, to encourage you to take that miraculous leap of faith over the dark chasm known as, “IF”. Pray, “Help me to believe.” End your prayer with, “I believe”.

As for the rest of the story… Begin a new life, receiving the Kingdom of God as a child, allowing it to live in you and you in it.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. You can quote me if you like:

    One Definition of Faith: When ‘if’ becomes ‘is’ because we acted in reliance on Hope.

    One Definition of Love: When we act without reliance on Hope because we desire ‘if’ to be ‘is’ far more than we care if we should expect ‘if’ to be.
