Why is there disparity between the information I know and actions I do?
Why do I hear and not perform?
If I know the truth, why does the truth not set me free?
Why does the knowledge of my sovereign Lord not unchain my worried heart?
Why the disconnect?
Might it be that I do not truly know as I ought, or, more specifically, that I do not actually believe what I know? Somewhere it says that those believe enter the rest of God. I know the truth (though not fully, until the other side of eternity). But, still, I know the nuts and bolts to bolster trust. Sovereignty. Love. Heart-change-ability. I know these things.
It must be, then, that I do not believe them. At least not as I ought. Belief and trust are similar concepts. So, then, I must have a trust problem.
This has been hitting me harder recently.
I’ve read things. The Bible. Theology.
I know things.
But, it’s getting things into my heart that seems to be the problem.
That’s the disconnect.
