In this passage, our Lord is asked: “What can we do to perform the works of God?” (v. 28). His answer was entirely different from that which you would receive if you posed the question to adherents of different religious systems today. A Buddhist would answer: “We must follow the eightfold path of Buddhism.” A Muslim would answer: “We must fast and pray and make a trip to Mecca.” Some followers of the Christian way might answer: “We must engage in regular Bible study, prayer, tithing, and Christian fellowship.” But the answer Jesus gave was: “This is the work of God—that you believe…”
Understanding that God is utterly trustworthy will deliver us from such incapacitating emotions as worry, anxiety, and fear. This is not abundant life. To be overwhelmed by the concerns of this life reflects poorly upon the faithfulness of God. Even when we are not faithful, He is always faithful. Place your trust in Him. God is faithful.
PRAYER – Father, help us to come to a place where we completely place our trust in You. This should be a no brainer because You are God. If I cannot trust You in my walk, who can I trust. In Jesus name, Amen.
