Belief ≠ Trust

“Am I God, to kill and to make alive.” The king to whom Naaman was sent acknowledged God in his response. He even knew God has the power to make alive. Yet he did not believe that he had access to God. Nor that God was such a God as to act deliberately according to his care for his creation rather than with careless indifference in allotting blessings and curses. (2 Kings 5:7)

The king believed that God is, but this was not enough. “The devils believe and tremble,” (James 2:19) but they are reserved for destruction. We need to believe “[God] is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6) We must believe that God is who he says he is. He is more than all powerful; he is all loving as well. Trust that he is working for your good and the good of men. Seek him and petition him in this trust.
