Very few among us have ever really given God a chance. By “a chance” I mean honestly giving Him a fair shot at not just generating a miracle in our lives… but at running our lives His way.
Folks like to think they know all there is to know about themselves and most of their situations. Thankfully, not me. Oh, I used to feel that way… at least mostly, but sinful life unraveled that folly pretty quickly.
Holy Spirit approached me very simply and honestly… “Just give God a chance,” He said. “Just try Him and see what happens. Give Him an honest-to-goodness try and see whether or not He delivers you and comes through for you.”
So I did, and He did. God always keeps His word – always. He absolutely, positively never fails. When people reject or forsake Him and wind up in Hell, they’ve failed… not God. When we genuinely trust and obey the Lord through to the end, His Way and Plan always works to our salvation, benefit, and blessing. Always.
Heaven is filled with all those who just gave Him a chance.
