We sometimes want to reason what God says about us or our situation. Martha said “but” to what Jesus said about Lazarus. She tried to reason it. Let us not say ‘but’ to God when he says something about our life or situation. Let us say a better ‘b’ word which is believe.
Believe means we validate what God is saying. ‘But’ hurts the Holy Spirit because when we say ‘but’ to God, it shows that we doubt the validity, reality and the truth of what he is saying. Doubting God by saying ‘but’, is like we are saying that what he says is not true.
By us saying ‘but’ to God is like we are saying that there is another reality than that one which God is talking about, and that other reality is our own reasoning. God will never accept the ‘but’ word, because it enthrones our ‘reality’ rather than his.
He is trustworthy enough for us to accept what he is saying without the ‘but’ because we even come to him for everything by faith and not by reason. Our reason is too shallow to grasp everything he says or has for us and he loves to be trusted. We cannot reason the things about God but we can believe them and experience them.
