Hesitation & Resistance


“Trust in Him at all times, you people…” Psalm 62:8

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart…” Proverbs 3:5

“But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.” Romans 6:22

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Cor. 5:15

What would you do if the Holy Spirit of God told you this?

   Trust me without any hesitation.
   And do what I ask you to do without any resistance.

Do you know something? That’s exactly what the Lord spoke to my heart one day. When you believe the Lord has spoken to you, there’s only one full-proof way to know the Lord has spoken. Measure what you have heard against the Bible. The Lord will only and always speak in line with His Word.

I knew the Lord had spoken to me because I have learned over time to recognize His voice and most importantly because I knew the message I had received falls into line with the Bible. I also sensed a few days later the message was not for me alone and that perhaps others needed to hear it.

How did what I hear fit with the Bible, and how might this message be for you who are reading this?

God wants – and deserves – our TOTAL TRUST – how often? ALL THE TIME. HE IS LORD! He is worthy of our absolute full trust – WITHOUT ANY HESITATION. Though we as humans do, there is no reason we should ever doubt or question God. He is God! He was reminding me that day, and perhaps now is encouraging you in this, that WE SHOULD NOT HESITATE TO TRUST HIM. In everything, at all times, no matter how we feel or how things seem, no matter our circumstances or challenges, no matter what we think or anyone else says or does, WE NEED TO TRUST GOD WITHOUT HESITATION. God was reminding me He wants to take me to a much deeper level of TRUSTING HIM.

What else did God tell me and may He now be telling you? To OBEY HIM – without ANY resistance! Would God say this? Is it biblical? YES! God wants our WHOLE TRUST – and WHOLE OBEDIENCE. Without argument, debate, disagreement, questioning, reasoning, justifying, holding back, ANY disobedience, or rebellion. He wants – and deserves – for us to TOTALLY SURRENDER to Him, to TOTALLY YIELD to Him, to TOTALLY SUBMIT TO HIM, to TOTALLY OBEY HIM. With NO RESISTANCE!

To sum it all up, God wants – and deserves – our TOTAL TRUST and TOTAL SURRENDER / OBEDIENCE. Jesus Christ is LORD, SAVIOR, and KING, and there should never be any hesitation or resistance in LOVING HIM, SERVING HIM, WORSHIPING HIM, and OBEYING HIM – with humble reverence and adoring honor and praise forever!

The scriptures above show clearly when we become Christ’s followers, when we are born again, we become HIS and are HIS servants, or slaves, and belong utterly to Him.

May we trust Him completely, and obey Him entirely, with no hesitation, and with no resistance, because WE ARE HIS!

The Lord was showing me that day there are cracks and holes in my trust and obedience that need to be filled up. Places I need to go deeper and further in trusting and obeying Him. With NO hesitation. With NO resistance.

How about you, friend?
