do we really believe God?
We seem to have a difficult time believing God's Word. After all we are only human, and if we can't touch it or smell it or feel or see it with our own eyes, How can it be real? But the Bible tells us to not lean on our own understanding. In yet if we can't reason it out we discard it as not being true, We say we believe it, But our action tell a different story.
The Bible instruct us in many different areas, Such as it say if we would give of our money and time God promises to give it back to us in many ways, But very few act on it and them wonder why at the end of the month they come up short.
The Bible tells us that we are to forgive those that trespass against us, Do we? After all God says Vengeance is Mine says the Lord, Then why do we think it's are job to get back at folks who cross the line?
The Bible also tells us the we choose everyday whether we will be blessed or whether will be cursed, I think the word "Cursed" means we are going have all types of evil forces aimed at us, If we chose to expect blessings then that is what will be coming to us each day, It is up to us, Does that mean if chose blessing, You will never have trouble, No, I don't think so because God say's in this life you will have trouble, But He also said, Don't worry because I have already overcome the world.
“for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matt. 11:29-30
Many time we are our own worst enemy when it comes to causing our own demise, We need to watch ever word the comes out of our mouths, Many time we say things without a thought as to the effect, Our words carry power, If you don't think so, Think about this how many times have said something that made some angry, Words have started wars, Caused divorces and so forth. Even things like saying, "I can't do that" creates a negative effect , The words "I can do that", Creates the opposite effect. Many time we don't even realize what we say and the effect it has on our life.
We need to learn the we need to be careful how we react to things, It's all about attitude and God is big on attitude so much so that the children of Israel spent 40 years wandering around in the desert, Because they not only had a bad attitude, They grumbled and complained about everything, Ever notice how much more your kids get out of you if they have good attitude, Don't you think God see the same thing with us, The bible says that every good and perfect gift come from the father above. He want to bless His children, But just like our Earthly children, When they are thankful and show appreciation we are much more apt to give then what they want.
We really need to be more attentive to the promises of God and what He requires of us to receive them, All the promises of God come with conditions, He has already done his part, Now it's up to us to line with those conditions and be victorious.
God bless you all
