All our anxiety arises from our lack of faith in the Word of God. We will not take God at His Word.
Luke 24:36-39, 36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. The Peace of Christ removes the need for Him to ask, why are you troubled? The question becomes what is it about Christ that should terrify a person who claims to be a disciple? How is it possible that the real Christ appears to us and we conclude we’re seeing a ghost? Tonight we explore the answer to all these questions under the umbrella of God has answers.
What is probation? What is the function of probation? Is probation an act of grace? Is probation part of the plan of salvation? The plan of redemption? And the answer to all of those is YES, but we shall answer them biblically.
The first question is not I have a problem. The first question should be is God with me? When God is with you a solution is with you, for with God all things are possible. There are levels of spiritual power. There are degrees to which God blesses. Did not Jesus say from time to time be it unto thee according to thy faith? Which means if you bring to Jesus Christ a thimble full of faith Jesus pours out the faith and pours in blessings. Does He fill the thimble up? Yes, He pours blessings to the brim of that thimble and gives it to you, that’s what you brought. Now here comes someone else and brings a bathtub, what does Jesus do? He fills it to the brim. Is Jesus fair? Yes. How much you get is not dependent on Jesus but on your faith. Stop bringing Jesus thimbles, bring him a bathtub of obedience and go back with blessings
