God believes in me. These words exploded in my mind and spirit as I flew from Perth to Singapore on 16th March, 2008.
I had been watching an in-flight movie, ‘Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium’, and was fascinated by how a block of wood could do the most wondrous things if only the person, who was supposed to believe in it, believed.
That was when God spoke to me, “I believe in you, Wilfred.”
I was startled. It was as if I was the block of wood and God was believing into me.
What did this mean? I was always taught to believe in God, told it was my belief that would allow him to work miracles in my life.
But this seemed to be only one half of the equation. We love because He first loved us, we believe because He first believed in us! His belief in us is the missing first half of the equation.
Astounding, marvelous, humbling and awesome were but some of the emotions I felt as the impact of these words began to grow within me.
If God believes in me even in all my unbelief, how much more am I able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me?
