Believing and Walking in the Truth
Do you believe that God is in control? To believe something is to have it influence our actions and attitudes. If I believe it, then it will change the way I view my life. And if I know it, then it is just one more fact I can recite from memory.
If God is truly in control, then I can live with the questions that for the moment have no answers.
I have experienced the power of believing God, and a peace that passes all understanding – and this belief and peace is only in God and of God. When I place my belief in God, and I partner my faith with the power of God… then I can surrender my will and willingly give up my right to understand.
Too many times, belief is based on what I can get in return, but there is a realm of belief that believes God at all cost, because He is truth.
I will choose to stand on the Word of God and dare to see my miracle in the spirit until…
Until can be a long, long time or a very short time, but until is a radical place to be and in this place…
- Your faith will be tested beyond what you can withstand in the natural;
- You’ll discover what you really believe;
- You’ll discover who you really are;
- You’ll discover that you’re stronger than you think you are; and
- You’ll encounter the grace and peace of God.
Until is a place where miracles happen!
Do you really want it?
I believe there is a difference between knowing something to be true and believing it to be true. I also believe there is a higher state of believing – and it’s when you believe with all your heart and soul.
You will have to deposit your values, truths, and faith down deep within your spirit, and into your belief system.
And whatever is in your belief system, you should be willing to stand for, fight for, and ultimately die for… now that’s believing.
If you really want to believe something and be successful in it, you have to be willing to…
- Own it;
- Defend it; and
- Invest in it.
Freedom in your mind and in your spirit is priceless.
Once you encounter this FREEDOM, you will value the freedom in your mind and spirit, because you know all the hell you went through for the victory.
It’s a real war between freedom and bondage in this world and everyone will have to make a choice.
The enemy is after your mind and your soul… and he doesn’t care which one he gets.
The Victim Mentality
Everyone goes through trials and storms in life.
But not everyone is abused.
And not everyone has a disease.
And not everyone will have to bury someone they love.
Some storms are more difficult than others, but we have to make a choice if we will live in resentment, grief, anger, or shame.
There is a time to grieve but the timeline is not a lifetime.
I lost way too much in my life… my innocence, my 2 ½ year old son, my marriage, my home, my wealth, so I know a few things about loss.
I want to encourage you from a voice of HOPE… there is life on the other side of pain and loss. I am a living testimony that God’s grace is real, and He is the lifter of your head.
He is a God that restores and heals the broken and wounded places in your mind, heart, body, and soul.
You can try to carry your past, but it is a heavy load and it only gets heavier each and every year.
- Your freedom is in Jesus.
- Your freedom is in forgiving others.
- Your freedom is in forgiving yourself.
- Your freedom is casting your cares on the Lord and letting Him invade and consume your world…past, present and future.
Holding on to the grief is not hurting the other person…it’s only hurting you.
I pray you are ready, because you are no longer a victim.
I pray you are ready and willing to surrender your will and right to understand everything. Yes, even the things in life that have caused you the greatest pain. All the why’s and why me’s won’t help or give you peace.
I am so sorry for all of your pain and heartache.
I’m sorry for who hurt you, who lied to you, and who spoke those words that still torment you today. I’m sorry for who walked out on you… who rejected you and why you had to endure so much. No one will ever know the depth of your pain but Father God.
So I pray you dare to trust Him today and cast your cares at His feet. Lay down all of your fears, concerns, questions, anger, and pain. Father God’s love is more than enough for you.
I pray that the Holy Spirit invades your every thought and even the ones you are not willing to lay down today. The ones that you think are too horrific to share.
His love is invading every lie, every fear, every memory, every sickness and every moment of grief, and His love is washing and healing you in Jesus name.
His love is washing you clean. Just breathe in and inhale the love of the Father. Receive it my friend. Let Him love you. Let Him wash your shame and restore your innocence.
Father God loves you dearly and wants to empower you to walk in freedom. So stretch your faith and trust Him with everything that concerns you, because God is in control.
I would love to hear from you… so leave me a comment and let me know how this blog has helped you.
Love and prayers,
