Is there someone you believe in?

me and TimI believe in Tim Henderson.

There’s no doubt about it. Not just because Valentine’s Day is coming up, but for every day of my life, I can honestly say I believe in Tim Henderson.

And what do I mean when I say this? Is it a statement of my belief that Tim really exists  . . . that he’s a man who really lives and breathes on this planet . . . or is there more substance to it than that?

Of course there is.

It means I believe what he tells me is true; he is a man of his word, he is who he says he is, and he is fully equipped and able to successfully complete all he sets his mind to. When I say I believe in him, what I’m really saying is because I’m his bride and we are one, I trust him with my life and the direction in which he leads us.  I will boldly stand up for him, praise and encourage him, and walk assuredly with him as he moves forward in God’s plan and purpose for us.

There’s a scripture that also says something about “believing in”. It is John 3:16: “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” “Whosoever BELIEVES IN HIM”; not “whosoever believes He was or is a real person . . . or that he really once existed or still exists”.  There’s another scripture, James 2:19, that says “even the demons believe, and they tremble in terror.”

When I say I believe in Jesus, it means I believe all He has told me is true; His words are trustworthy and true (every single one of them), He is who He says He is, and He will do all He has said He will do.  When I say I believe in Him, what I’m really saying is because I’m his Bride and we are One, I trust Him with my life and the direction in which He’s leading me.  I will boldly stand up for Him, praise and worship Him, and walk assuredly with Him as He leads me forward in His plan and purpose for my life.

And you know what? It’s really easy to believe in Tim . . . because he believes in Jesus.

How about you? Do you believe in Jesus?
