WARNING! DANGER AHEAD! Do you ever see signs like that by certain roads, or work areas'seeing a sign like that would make you stop and think seriously, wouldn’t it?God’s Word has many warnings for us, and one of them is in Hebrews 3：12.Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
“Take heed” means warning, be careful. God is warning believers to be careful that they don’t let unbelief come in their heart and cause them to turn away from the true and living God.
If you know the Lord Jesus as your Saviour, this is a daily warning for you! Unbelief can slip in so quietly, step by step, or thought by thought. Soon you lose interest in praying because you don’t think God really answers prayer. Then you lose interest in reading your Bible, because thoughts are coming in, “It’s not true.” Unbelief will cause your love for God to grow cold, and you will drift away from serving Him. But the truth is：God DOES hear and answer prayer! God’s Word IS true! So watch out for anyone or anything that tries to pull you away. Wanting to have your own way will cause you to have that evil heart of unbelief also. Watch out! Ask God to forgive your unbelief and turn back to Him with your whole heart!
Have you been remembering some times lately that you have not believed God, and you have pouted and insisted on your own way?Will you right now bow your head and pray, telling God all about it, and asking Him to forgive you?You are His child by believing in the Lord Jesus, and He loves you so much that He is ready to forgive that sin when you confess it to Him. Ask the LORD to help you believe Him and humbly follow His way! Maybe there is someone else to whom you need to go as well, and say, “God has shown me that I have been stubborn, wanting my own way. Will you please forgive me for the way I’ve been acting?” How this will please your Heavenly Father!
What is the opposite of unbelief?Faith! Let’s sing about it!Faith is believing what you cannot see.Faith is believing what God says will be.Sometimes it’s hard to trust and not worry, To stand on God’s Word, and not how I feel.Oh Jesus, please help me to trust and believe You, To step out and follow whatever Your will!
Let’s say our Bible verse again, Hebrews 3：12 Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Believe God, and don’t insist on your own way!
If you have never believed on the Lord Jesus, won’t you turn from your unbelief today and ask the Lord Jesus to save you from your sin and make you His child?He is waiting and longing to save you! Go now to “How to Be a Child of God.”
