Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 1st – Choose To Believe

(Always Open Your Heart To Truth)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 10:10 NASB
“…With the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”

There’s no doubt that Jesus’ brothers would have heard from their mother about His miraculous birth and the amazing stories of His childhood. Also, their father Joseph must have told them about how he received angelic visitations several times concerning Jesus. Yet, at first, they didn’t believe in Him.

In John 7:3-5 MSG, we read about His brothers’ unbelief and opposition during the Feast of Tabernacles: “…Why don’t you leave here and go up to the Feast so your disciples can get a good look at the works you do? No one who intends to be publicly known does everything behind the scenes.

If you’re serious about what you are doing, come out in the open and show the world.” His brothers were pushing him like this because they didn’t believe in him….”

This tells us something: believing is with the heart. You choose to believe, and you choose to harden your heart. Our opening verse says, “For with the heart a person believes…” (Romans 10:10 NASB).

Open your heart to God’s truths! So much is revealed to us in the Scriptures about the divinity of Jesus and the salvation in His Name; embrace these realities. God’s desire is for us to be filled with the knowledge of His will, to know His truth and walk accordingly.

That’s why we find a prayer of the Spirit by the Apostle Paul for God’s children in Colossians 1:9 AMPC: “For this reason we also, from the day we heard of it, have not ceased to pray and make [special] request for you, [asking] that you may be filled with the full (deep and clear) knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom [in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things.” Hallelujah!

From the beginning, God chose me for salvation through the sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. Therefore, it makes no difference how many antichrists, false preachers and false teachers are out there in the world, I can’t be deceived, for my heart and mind are anointed to know the truth. I have insight into Kingdom mysteries and secrets. Glory to God!
