Feeling Less Than Spiritual
by Randy Chambers, 2015-09-21
John 14:1-3, NIV: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God;
trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I
would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go
and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that
you also may be where I am.
No, you are not the only one who has faced it. You know—a time when you feel,
shall we say, less than spiritual. Just as many others, I too can say, “Been
there…lived through that.” Sometimes, that’s all you feel you’ve accomplished.
Living through it, that is. And barely even that, perhaps. Maybe you wonder how
it is possible to get through the tough times and feel more like a victorious
Christian, than a beaten believer. The first thing you must do is put your eyes
on Jesus. The second thing is to keep them there. In our “less than spiritual”
times, it is tempting to believe the voice that tells you, you have failed—and
tells you, you will only fail again. But that is not the voice of Jesus; and it
is only His voice to which you should be paying close attention. Don’t let your
heart be troubled, believe in Jesus. He has wonderful things in store for you.
If it were not so…He would have told you.
