How do we know if we really believe the Word of God? We may say we believe the Word, but when the trials of life arrive, that’s when we truly find out what we believe.

Trials have a way of exposing our belief. If we respond to trials with worry, fear, panic, stress, or sadness, we should be honest with ourselves and say we believe more in the possibility of a negative outcome than the Word of God.

True evidence to show that we believe the Word of God in any situation is rest. Rest doesn’t mean inactivity. Rest is taking our hands off the situation and constantly reminding ourselves that through the blood of Jesus, this situation has already been worked out. It’s placing our belief in what Jesus has already done and not what we can do.

We may not know how or when it’s going to be worked out, but because the Word says it (healing, provision, deliverance, etc.) is already done, we believe it and move on. Rest by believing the Word of God over everything.

Hebrews 4:11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
