I'm Not Crazy...I'm Just Convinced!

Suddenly, Festus shouted, "Paul, you are insane! Too much study has made you crazy!" But Paul replied, "I am not insane, most Excellent Fesus, I am speaking the sober truth." Acts 26:24-25

There are going to be times when people are trying to follow Christ are going to be told that they're crazy; that what they believe doesn't make sense, or that what they're believing for isn't possible; that whay they do or don't do just doesn't seem "normal."

Paul was not shaken by that accusation. He was netiher afraid nor ashamed. he responded back with conviction that he was not insane, but was bold to speak the truth, and to believe God at His Word, no matter how uncomfortable it was. He was convinced in the God that had called him. He was convinced in God's faithfullness, His guidance, and His power.

Don't allow yourself to become intimidated when you know God is speaking something to you. Whether it's concerning a direction He's called you to take, or believing for a breakthrough in your marriage, finances, or job, just believe. Don't let anyone or anything tell you your're crazy. Just speak back: "I'm not crazy...I'm just convinced!"
