Jesus’ life is an example that is not beyond us, because He is alive in us. This is the way to live. First I get to know the Master, then I can trust Him, and then I can obey Him. That’s the order. It doesn’t matter what I am dealing with.
The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:12b, “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him.” Paul knew the Master.
Once we know Him, we can trust Him for the worst situation in our marriage.
Once we know Him, we can trust Him to deliver us from any kind of mental confusion, emotional problem, or physical sickness.
It all rests on getting to know Him. As we trust Him, as we act in faith because of knowing Him, we desire to obey Him. As we enter into faith obedience to His Word, He imparts to us the very authority of God.
