What do you believe?
Beliefs are ingrained thoughts that distinguish us from each other and dictate how we respond to the world around us. Some say beliefs are the precursor to our future. They control our behavior, influence our words and shape our lives.
A recent conversation with a dear friend challenged me to ask myself this same question. Perfect timing! Distressing events around the world, close to home and at home were trying to rattle my faith. It was time to recollect my beliefs. This was my answer I’d like to share with you.
God loves me and is always with me. He is my Heavenly Father and I am His beloved child. (even when I am not reflecting His love)
The Kingdom of God supersedes the laws of this world. God is the Creator of all. In the end, all nations will experience His power and authority. (I continue to pray for the lost)
God is the only vindicator. No person, entity, fear, hardship, mistake, deception, racism, divorce, evil doing, persecution, jealousy, slander, devastation, rejection, betrayal, pain, anger, offense, sin, war, prejudice, disappointment, abuse, loss, addiction, anxiety, disease, frustration or any ungodly thing will have dominion over me and keep me in bondage. (ever again)
Jesus is the Savior of the world. Anyone who accepts the Son of God can experience His power, protection and provision. All things are possible with Him! (especially miracles)
God created me for a purpose. My life is not my own. ( I used to think it was) I cannot do anything of substance or sustainability without God. I trust Him with it all.
My life is abundant, fruitful and victorious! I am so thankful for God’s never-ending grace, mercy, wisdom, favor, truth and power! Regardless of the circumstance, He takes care of all my needs so I can be a blessing to others. (words spoken in faith until full manifestation)
Psalms 91 is a beautiful summary of the peace you can enjoy through belief in God. I pray these scriptures edify and encourage you! Friend, God is ready to be all you need Him to be in your life. Draw close to Him and simply…believe!
