shutterstock_352728503Life sometimes gives us good reason to worry. Suddenly something unexpected happens, something we did not plan for and we find ourself saying “this gives me good reason to worry for the future”. A loved one suddenly without warning turns his back on Yahweh and chooses a life of sin. What will happen to him? Your boss suddenly gives you notice and you find yourself without work, how are you going to survive? The doctor suddenly tells you that lump is cancer and you have just two months left to live, how are you going to survive?

Reason can be our biggest enemy sometimes because it only focuses on what we can see, hear, feel, smell and experience with our physical senses. But what we forget is this, the world we can experience with our physical senses is not the truth.

“What do you mean this is not the truth? I certainly feels like the truth, this headache really feels like the truth to me”

Yes I agree, that need you have right now feels like the truth to you. Its a pressing need. You need healing right now, you need money right now and that is no lie or illusion. Thats a pressing need right here and right now.

But did you know that need is based on a lie?

When Yahweh created this world, He did not create a world with need. He did not create a world with sickness, poverty and death. He created a perfect world, a world without sickness, without poverty and without death. But because of the choices made by our ancestors Adam and Eve we have a far from perfect world today. Because of what they did, we are no facing a world in bondage to sin. And the consequences of sin, our own sin and other peoples sin, is the foundation of your needs. Sin has caused you to need healing and money right now.

Sin is the reason why you need healing right now, sin is the reason why you need money and cant pay your bills right now. Sin is the reason for every need we have. And yes sometimes its our own sin, and sometimes its other peoples sin or a combination of both.

Sin is a reality and sin is a truth. We cant deny our own sin, and we cant deny the sin in this world. So how then can I make such a statement as to say this world is not the truth?

Reason is our window into the world of sin and its consequences. But trust is our window into the world of righteousness, the world of Yahweh. And 2000 years ago Yahweh made sure that His world would become our only reality.

When Yeshua died for us He conquered the world of reason. When Yeshua died He defeated reason once and for all. And now we have a choice on what world to live in, the world of reason and sin or the world of trust and righteousness.

Yes you have a choice and Yahweh is not going to make that choice for you. But He will hold you accountable to what you choose. Because you can not choose the world of reason and at the same time expect His help. (Rom 14:23)

If you choose the world of reason you will live a life without the victory He has already given you when He died for you on the cross. You will never see healing because reason tells you cancer kills you. You will never see a financial miracle because reason tell you without money you starve. You will never see your loved ones coming back to Yahweh because reason tells you people have the freedom of choice and you have no right to judge their choice of life.

And in the end you will not see salvation, because a life of reason also robs you of your soul in the end. Reason will always tell you there is no god, no salvation and no right or wrong. No sin, no hell, no heaven.

So if you choose the world of reason you will one day loose your soul. And yes you can claim to be a christian, you claim to be saved, but you can not hold on to the cross with one hand and the world of reason with the other. If you try you will be defeated, and the world of reason will always win. Why? Because you will live a life based on your physical senses, and you can not prove your salvation with your physical senses.

So Yahweh urges us to choose the true reality, the reality of trust and not the reality of reason. And after all….this was the choice you made the day He saved you. You chose despite reason to trust that you had sinned and needed reconciliation to Yahweh. So you chose despite reason to trust that Yeshua the Son of God died for your sins.

This is the way Yahweh calls us to live, a life of trust despite reason.

So when  the world of reason tells you that you are going to die of cancer, Yahweh calls you to choose trust. He calls you to trust that He has healed you because He is Yahweh Rapha your healer. When the world of reason tells you there is no money left, and now you will starve to death, Yahweh calls you to choose trust. He calls you to trust that He is your provider because He is Yahweh Yireh.

He will never make this choice for you, this is a choice you will have to make yourself. You will have to choose trust, to choose to live by trust. (Rom 1:17)

That day when you made the decision to trust Yeshua dying for you on the cross you were declared righteous by trust. Rom 1:17 tells us this is how we are to live, to live by this trust no matter what happens.

So what is trust?

The kind of trust we are called to have is the trust that transcends the world of reason. Its the same trust you had the day when you first got saved. Reason agreed you had failed at certain parts of life, but reason also told you about all the good things you had done. So reason lied to you and said you were a good person and that God should consider all your good deeds. But trust transcended the world of reason and reminded you Yahweh demands perfection. So you chose trust, you chose to trust that Yeshua died for your sins and this reconciled you to Yahweh and made you righteous.

This is the kind of trust you are called to live by (Rom 1:17) The trust that transcends reason. The trust that says I might have cancer, but Yeshua died for me so I am righteous. Because I am righteous Yahweh is my Yahweh Rapha and He will heal me. This is the trust that says I might be broke, but Yeshua died for me so I am righteous. Because of my righteousness Yahweh is my Yahweh Yireh and He will provide for me.

Yahweh will never make this choice for you, He will allow you to choose a life of reason. But if you choose reason you will one day loose your soul. You will never see healing, money and never see your needs met.

So choose today trust, the kind of trust that transcends reason. The trust that says because Yeshua died for me I know there is a higher truth beyond what I can see, hear, feel.

If you make that choice you will suddenly see Yahweh confirming His word. And then you will know this world, the world of reason, is not reality. This world is only a lie we have believed for to long and now its time to discover the real world by making the choice to trust.
