We are living in an age where men and women in the limelight want us to believe what they say, they want us to believe in them. It is becoming increasingly difficult to trust anyone in leadership with all that we keep seeing in the news that has come about with #metoo and #churchtoo.
So what about your own influence? We cannot control what others think and do, but we want others to trust us, to believe in what we say, whatever it is. Certainly, no one will trust us about Jesus if we are not authentic. It is His authenticity that i long for myself, knowing full well that i have not attained it.
Moses was incredibly humble (Numbers 12:3). The people believed in everything he said because the Lord made it evident to all that it was He, God Himself, who was with Moses. The people had no question about what Moses said about God, because they clearly saw the presence of God with him.
Do others sense the presence of the Jesus with you? The Lord will place His presence on us when we humble ourselves before Him, confess all known sin to Him, and live and speak for His glory, not ours. When the Christ’s presence is with and in us, then all that we say and do is believable and trustworthy. It is only in Christ and His moral boundaries that our nation can be healed. He is our hope and peace. Will you do your part in this, so that others can believe in you to reveal Jesus and His truth?
Exodus 19:9--The Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will come to you in a thick cloud, so that the people may hear when I speak with you and may also believe in you forever.” Then Moses told the words of the people to the Lord.
