LIFE PRINCIPLE 2 – To Trust or Not to Trust By Charles F. Stanley

Topic: To Trust or Not to Trust

Disobedience says to God that
you know better than He does
when it comes to your life.

Disobedience says to the Lord that you know better than He does when it comes to your life and the circumstances surrounding it. Nothing could be further from the truth. God loves you and is committed to you. He commands your obedience not because He is a strict taskmaster but because He knows the devastating effect that disobedience and sin will have on your life.

You were created to have
fellowship with God.

You were created to have fellowship with Him. Disobedience disrupts that fellowship and puts obstacles in the way of your relationship. It creates spiritual distance between you and God and makes you vulnerable to temptation. That vulnerability doesn’t go unnoticed by Satan.

He encourages disobedience by telling you the Lord’s promises cannot be trusted and you can enjoy life more if you ignore His commands. Satan will skew your perspective by causing you to doubt the most secure and trustworthy thing in the world: God’s Word.

Disobedience always leads to
consequences.

The key to resisting Satan’s temptation is to
remember that disobedience always produces consequences including feelings of guilt, shame,
and worthlessness; broken lives; destroyed marriages; and bitter disputes. While sin can never change God’s eternal love for His children, it can certainly disrupt your fellowship and alienates you from His blessings. In times of disobedience, you become spiritually weak and unable to discern right from wrong. You sink deeper into sin’s grasp and find it impossible to reverse your sinfulness on your own.

Now the serpent was more
cunning than any beast of the
field which the LORD God had
made. And he said to the woman,
“Has God indeed said, ‘You shall
not eat of every tree of the
garden’?” (Genesis 3:1).
