January 22, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- UNBELIEF OF THE WILL (1) – HEBREWS 3:12
God does not want His children to be careless such that they move into a state where they are still children of God but no longer believers. The above text warns of the evil heart of unbelief. This can also be referred to as the unbelief of the will. This is a refusal to act according to what you know; and only a child of God can have this type of unbelief, only a person that has known God and has been exposed to God can have this. But the word of God said “take heed”, that is, you must take personal responsibility to ensure that this possibility does not become a reality in your own life.
There are Christians today that have become victims of this kind of unbelief because they stopped acting according to what they know. You need to ask yourself the following questions and answer them sincerely so as to be able to do a correct assessment of your status in God: How many of my actions reflect what I know to be the truth? How many of my actions are in consonance with the knowledge of God that I have been exposed to? Always strive to make sure the devil is not moving you towards that pathway of unbelief of the will.
Stop acting differently from what you know. An unbeliever may not be able to act according to the word of God because of the level of knowledge and information he has been exposed to. On the other hand, it is a known truth that the Holy Spirit is inside everyone that is born-again but it is possible for a believer to act as if the Holy Ghost is not in him. The scripture says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. That is the correct position of a believer. Stop acting differently from the evidence of the scripture that you are aware of.
PRAYER: LORD, help me to always act according to the truth of the word of God that I know. Amen!
