“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:1-2 KJV
If it were not so, I would have told you.
God’s promises are thick and brimming with hope. It’s easy to think they are just pipe dreams. Idealistic references, suitable to dream about, but never to bank on. But here’s the thing, we can take God’s promises to the bank. They are true. We can cash them in. Were they not real, He would have told us. Because that’s who He is. Sovereign God. Were it not so, He would have told you.
I wonder how many things we could stop worrying about if we took our focus off of our troubles, off of man, and placed our eyes on Him.
But we doubt. We doubt His will for our lives and we doubt His sovereign intentions. Seeing only what is immediately before us, and refusing to see through the eyes of the God man.
He lays it out so clearly…
“Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:11-14 NIV
We can ask anything in His name, and He will do it. Were it not so, He wouldn’t have told you! When we ask in line with the Spirit of The Lord, the true Spirit of freedom, we can ask anything in His name and trust that He will answer. He is not a God to be doubted in, but one to be banked on, trusted in, and grounded in completely! Completely.
Today seems hopeless? Pick up that doubt and insecurity and take it to the throne room of God. Hand it off to Him, whatever it is, and walk away with peace. The promises and sovereignty of who He is. If He were not God, if His Word was not true, He would have told you. Walk in peace dear sister, God had this, and you covered. Completely.
