You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“...O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” – Matthew 14:31

Recently I was asked to preach in a church. I asked God what I should speak and Holy Spirit gave me a promise verse to speak in that church. I sat in God’s presence to write some important points from that verse. But yet I could not put myself into the process of preparing a sermon. I found the verse so tough to speak and I could not able to prepare a sermon at all.

So I asked God to give another verse but again God insisted me to speak on the same verse before. I prayed and wrote the sermon. Throughout that day I was thinking about the sermon and I could not love it as it was. 

On the day of preaching, I told Jesus Christ that I dislike this sermon and so asked Him that at least 3 people should come to me after the sermon and tell that the message was good and it is for them. 

With lot of fear and doubt I stood before the congregation and preached God’s word through the help of Holy Spirit. I felt God’s presence strongly upon me and once I came down from the pulpit, 5 people came to me and told that the message was superb. 

I was so happy to hear those words and as I was returning from the church in the car, I thanked God for what He has done on that day. As I started praising God, Jesus Christ spoke to me through Holy Spirit saying, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt Me?”

When He asked me that question, I felt so sad to know that I had hurt God’s heart on that day. 

There were times in our lives, we doubt God’s mighty power and His promise. God tells us in Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."

Whatever God had promised you, will be fulfilled in your life. Do not hurt God’s heart by doubting His promise or His leading. When He leads you in some way which you can’t understand, just trust Him. He will do things for your good and He will do only good things in your life. 

My dear young friend, put your faith upon Jesus Christ and trust Him always. He will lead you beside quiet waters and to green pastures. You will not lack anything. Jesus Christ loves you. He will give you all that you need and will bless you.
