Believe What You Know

The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. —Psalm 29:4

Several months ago when I was going through a difficult time, a friend shared these wise words with me: “You know what you believe. In times like these, you discover whether you believe what you know.”

We know a lot of things. We know what Psalm 29 says, that the Lord is King, He sits over the flood, and He is enthroned forever. We believe those things—at least we say we do. Yet during hard times, we discover whether we really believe what we know.

I’ve declared truths from God’s Word to others all my adult life. I’ve told women, “These things are true. You can anchor your heart here.”

But here’s what I’ve been finding out during the last few years: those things really are true. I’ve known them in my head and have experienced them at some measure. Now, I’m discovering anew that what I’ve known to be true in the past from God’s Word is an anchor for my heart no matter what I’m going through.

Make it Personal

Ask God to help you believe the promises from His Word in a fresh and new way for your current circumstances.
