Below is an excerpt

 from our Bible Devotion

Trusting God

Are you Serious?

Karl had a long day at work.

He was ready to unwind.

He headed straight for his recliner.

He eased down onto his beloved chair. He nestled back while raising the footrest. Then he slowly brought his head back so that it rested gently on the soft headrest.

Karl reached for his trusty remote and turned the television on.

Then a sinking feeling hit him...

“I’m thirsty.”

Too tired to move,
he pushed the thought from his mind and concentrated on his favorite show.

Suddenly, he heard,

“This news update just in!

The water supply has been found to be contaminated.

It is imperative that you boil your tap water

or use bottled water.

More details at 11:00 on News Team 11.”

“What!” Karl barked at the television.

“I washed my hands when I came home,

and the

water looked fine.

That news report is . . .


Karl was so irritated that he found the energy

to get that drink that he had wanted.

He angrily got up and headed for the kitchen.

“There’s nothing wrong with this water!”

Karl declared to his cat

who was lounging on a kitchen chair.

With that statement,

Karl turned on the faucet,

filled a glass with water,

and drank it straight down.

“This water is just fine!

They think they are soooo smart!

What do they know anyway!”


The water looked fine.

Karl judged the water with his eyes. But there were things about the water that cannot be judged with the human eye.

It is easy to see

how foolish

Karl was in this situation.

But, many times

we act just as foolishly during our daily walk

with God.

God personally speaks to us about

harmful situations,

but many times we have the same attitude

that Karl had:

“I don’t see anything wrong with it!”

Do you take God’s Words seriously?

"Despise God's Word


find yourself in trouble.

Obey it and succeed."

Proverbs 13:13 TLB

Sometimes it helps for us to be reminded

of what we already know.

Hopefully this devotion has been a helpful reminder.
