"Believes all things."

Postby bigloop » Thu May 10, 2018 5:16 am

You know the scripture. In case not, read 1 Cor 13. As I have endeavored to put this God given guidance into practice, I have reaped the bountiful harvest from sowing the seeds as directed. Sometimes "doing" faith looks different than what you think. But God's way is higher than our ways.

Believing all things is not naivety. On the contrary it is an intentional effort to fill the gap between expectations and experience with the best possible explanation then choosing to believe that about your spouse. It is an intentional battle against selfishness. It is quitting a fight that is actually against ourselves.

Gods way works every time it is tried. You must be patience, you must trust, you must believe.

I am compelled to say - Praise The Lord!

He is faithful! I praise Him with you!
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.

BL,
I really like what you said “Believing all things is not naivety. On the contrary it is an intentional effort to fill the gap between expectations and experience with the best possible explanation then choosing to believe that about your spouse.” I haven’t heard it put this way and I’d like to share it with some people. If those are your words can I share them? I can’t exactly give you credit, but I could say “A friend once said” ..... But I wouldn’t want to presume;)
