But do we believe God about us?


A friend of mine was watching Thomas the train…

With his daughter, and he said when the cartoon said “I think I can, I think I can”, he said he was about to go into a praise dance!

All jokes aside, the real reason why he was about to break into this praise dance is because he understood, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” Prov 23:7. And what he believes about himself is praiseworthy!

Here is the conundrum…

Paul said “Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind” Romans 14:5, persuaded about what though? Chances are if you’ve come to Christ, you know that Jesus Christ is Lord, you know you received the gift of the Holy Ghost and yet…

It seems your everyday life is barely making it, and the whispers of “Blessed and Highly Favored” and the plethora of our favorite anecdotes we use when we want to LOOK ok.

The persuasion is this…

He that cometh to God must believe THAT HE IS, AND… that he IS a REWARDER of them that DILIGENTLY seek him.

Heb 11:6, with emphasis

We must believe the Jesus of the bible. Who he is to us, and what he did while establishing the new covenant on earth, (Luke 22:20). If we believe that Jesus died for our sins, then we must also believe that that same blood justifies us before God, (Romans 5), and grants us access to grace and all of the “spiritual blessings in heavenly places.” (Eph 1). Christ came to establish a new race! Part divine, part man… just as he was.

WHOOOOOA HOLD THA PHONE! YOU MEAN ME!?!!?

Yes, even you!

Here’s the thing! What we believe about God strengthens what we believe about ourselves!
When we know that he has given us all power over the power of the enemy, we no longer have to live defeated. When you are a babe in the faith there is a lack of application of the spiritual principles of God and therefore weakened living.

But THE SOLUTION IS: God spoke who you are, but you wont become it until you believe it.

When you are a babe in Christ, you have to be preached out of being focused on what the devil is doing to being focused on what God is doing. This is how God keeps growing you from faith to faith and glory to glory (Rom 1:17).

The Lord is orchestrating all your sufferings to work for your good so that you will be able to do all the manner of work that children of God do, “the fields are white but the labourers are few” (Luke 10:2).

You do not NEED to doubt… you can be as solid as Jesus Christ is Lord! There are too many studies on AUTHORITY, the POWER in Jesus Christ, The indwelling of the Holy Ghost, and so many other things that we gain in the kingdom for you to act like it’s not real for you. Jesus promises…

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23). You must decide to believe what God says about you!
