BELIEVE, THEN SIT BACK AND WATCH MIRACLES HAPPEN !!!

The Bible is filled with various promises that God has made for the benefit of His children. First, let us overcome this idiotic notion that God did not write the Bible, and accept the fact that, yes, He chose certain people to write His words and that He did not actually write it Himself… And in the Bible, He has offered to His children many benefits that are available to, first achieve salvation and second, to make our lives on this earth much easier. Jesus has said that He came to give life and to give life more abundantly. Well, if the life  about which He is speaking is paradise, then how can paradise, which is perfection, be more abundant. What He is telling us is that we have two lives, our eternal life and our earthly life. The first life is paradise and the life that He can make more abundant is our life on earth.

The first thing that we must do is just BELIEVE !!! Our faith is constantly being tested and Satan is always attempting to cast doubt upon all that God has told to us. He even tried it with Jesus and was not successful, but, unfortunately, he is very successful with many of us. There is NOTHING impossible with God, and nothing means exactly that, nothing… But, we must believe in these words with all of our hearts and fight off the satanic influences that are always present.

We are told that faith pleases God more than anything, but we must know in what we have faith. Believing the words and promises of God is the essence of faith. And, do not think that asking for things for ourselves is a selfish thing. Many believe that we should only ask for things for others, but the Bible tells us just the opposite. We are told that; we have not because we ask not; and we are told; to cast all our cares upon Him… We are also promised that for whatever we ask, we will receive, as long as it is in His will. Many think that this condition limits for what we can ask, but in fact, it is in a sense of protection from our own human weaknesses. God knows what is best for us and will not give us anything that will ultimately hurt us, so just believe and trust, but mostly believe because it will happen at the best time for us. Remember that our conception of delay to a request is not a denial. Many times we must be prepared to accept His gift and that may take time, but that time should be spent considering what lesson are we being taught or what is it that we must stop or maybe start to do to be in a position to accept our request. Remember, God is never wrong, but we, as humans, are very often wrong… If we are asked to wait, then wait but never give up hope. Satan will always be there trying to convince us that a thousand things are preventing God from hearing our prayers, but he is just lying and we should believe that also, because that is true. So, ask and then wait and if we are asked to do something, then do it. It is just that simple if you BELIEVE !!!

This is a great message! It gives a good definition of our prayer life, trials which we face, and a good relationship with our Lord. Thanks for sharing...
