Believing God

If you have been a Christian for any period of time, you would have heard a lesson on Faith. Believing God is essential to Christianity. Today we will talk about believing God so that your faith can be built up and that you can believe God for your breakthrough and miracle.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

Faith is what you have when you believe something.  When you have it, this is your evidence or proof that you have what you believe for.

Definition of Substance – the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence.

through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3

Before anything comes in the natural, it is first in the spirit… God reveals these things to us by his Holy Spirit.  And then they become ours and we have to speak it out for it to come to manifestation in our lives. (See 1 Corinthians 2:9) We are made in the image and likeness of God. We have the ability to speak as God did in order to create.  (See Genesis 1:26)

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19

In Gen 1 we see God speaking and it creating the universe…  This is the power of Gods word.  When he speaks something, It happens.  Even if it does not exist yet, once He speaks it, then it comes to pass.  So You can trust the promises of God to come to pass in your life.  This is similar as telling something not to think about a pink elephant.  Immediately once you heard that, the image of a pink elephant appears in your mind.  This is how Powerful Gods word is.  Once he speaks something it happens.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:31-32

God is Almighty.  And because He is on our side, there is nothing that can come against us.  If you have been waiting long for something just remember that God gave up what was most valuable to him when Jesus died for us, why would he hold back any good thing from us? 

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”  And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17 

God has unlimited resources to help you in your situation.  Continue to believe him and ask him to open your eyes so that you can see the multitude of angles around you always.  Take heart… You do not need to be afraid or worried about it.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

This is how we are saved, We believe it in our hearts and confess with our mouths.  When we have prayer request, this is how we should also believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Believe the word of God.  He does not have plans to harm you. He loves you too much to do that.  He wants your live to be blessed and prosperous in every area.

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; Psalm 37:23

God wants to make your steps firm.  Just believe the word. Your response is to delight in him.  Praise him with a pure heart and enjoy every moment that you can in his presence.

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

You can trust God that he will guide you as you take the first step.  He will let you know where you need to go in order to get you to the expected end that he spoke of in Jeremiah 29:11.
