Do you remember a time like this? That moment when you needed someone to believe you, to trust you. Perhaps it was an accident and you wanted others to understand what happened. Maybe it was the doctor and you needed him to believe your symptoms. Perhaps someone was giving a different account about an incident that involved you. You told the truth, but how can the listener know this? This is the deciding moment. The moment when you need someone to believe you. To trust you. To take your word for it. Think back to a time when someone believed you. What a gift! It is like receiving a longed for and treasured prize. There is a sense of deep connection. A soul-level trust. A knowing and believing in who you are. This kind of belief in another person’s character is a rare commodity, something to be genuinely cherished. Imagine then, how it moves God’s heart when we believe Him. When we take His word for it. When we trust Him. The story of Christmas is true. Read here and believe!
