The Believing is in the Believer

Can we get the most complex things accomplished? Of course we can but it’s done through believing. Believe that achievements are within us. Being confident doesn’t mean that one is boasting but it does mean that they have a belief that things can be accomplished. It’s their faith that drives them to take the risks. One without it may not take the risk because the “faith” isn’t there.

Our gifts deserve to “shine.” Why shouldn’t they. God didn’t give them to us to keep them hidden. If we doubt ourselves then others will surely doubt us. People want to know if we believe in ourselves. Fear hinders us and it sometimes comes to visit us but we can kick it to the curb. Believing goes along way. It builds bridges for so many of us to cross.

A lot can be accomplished if we just allow security to be apart of our lives. Insecurities will mess go against us. It doesn’t accomplish a thing. Our faith will determine whether our goals will occur or not. If there’s little faith then there’s little progress. Progression will happen when we believe it will. Our minds have to remain focused on “determination.” There’s no progress if there’s no belief. Sometimes we allow those negative thoughts to seep in. We shouldn’t do it but it happens.

It”s possible to block those negative thoughts out and although it may not be easy times. It can be done. Growth occurs when we decide that we want it. If we want to elevate then we need to transform in a positive manner. Great things can be accomplished when we believe and receive those things that will help us “grow.” Stand on faith and allow doubt to walk away. Doubt isn’t our friend. It will cause setbacks and could stop us altogether.

The Power of Prayer

Prayer can get us through the toughest of times. It can keep us sane. Prayer generates peace. When faced with adversity. We should pray non stop. We should pray when things are going well. There’s so much going on in the world and we’re unable to control what occurs. We can pray for those who are suffering and for healing.

Whatever we go through in life we’re able to heal from it. God won’t put nothing on us that we can not bare. In troubled times prayer is the answer. I would hear my grandmother prayer and worship. It kept her sane. She witnessed a whole lot and dealt with so much. Prayer kept her strong and it does the same for me. Not a day goes by that I don’t pray. Prayer is uplifting, peaceful, and generates joy.

The best prayers are done in silence when there’s no one around. We need quality time with the Lord and get to know Jesus better. He was the one who died for our sins. The world may be chaotic but we can find some peace in it. Sometimes we need to spend time with alone in order to become more spiritually connected. We’re here because of God and we’re able to get through trials because of Him.

Even the most painful events can feel less painful through “prayer.” Our hearts will ache, our minds will turn unhealth thoughts, but prayer can cease those things. When we pray. We become less fearful. Our less levels go down and we feel so much better. “Prayer Changes Things.” We shouldn’t be riddled with all sorts of stresses. If we take the time to give God some time then we will notice changes for the better.

The world is filled with good and evil. We should pray for ourselves and those who come up against us. We will have to face trials and there’s no way of getting around it. When we set aside some time to pray. We become stronger and we’re able to handle situations better. Prayer works. It makes the days less stressful.

The Importance of a Spiritual Connection With God and Jesus

Are you waiting for a “breakthrough?” Just because we pray and we meditate on the Lord that doesn’t mean that we won’t go through those trials and tribulations but it does mean that we will be better equipped to deal with them. We live in a troubled world. Death was introduced through sin. No one is without sin. The Lord sent his only son to die for our sins and for that we should be thankful. John 6:40 says, “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” Some may claim that this world is like hell on earth.

It may be hot and chaotic but this world isn’t like hell and if there’s no repenting and there’s no relationship with God and Jesus then we won’t see what heaven looks like, feels like, and sounds like. If you haven’t decided to give God your time. You can do so right now. As long as there’s breath in the body. You can give your life to Jesus. John 14:6 says, “Jesus answered. I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” If it wasn’t for God sending His Son to die for our sins. We would be lost, undelivered, unprotected. God may allow us to go through those storms but He loved us enough to send His only Son to die for us and He wants us to have eternal life.

We won’t always do good because there will come a time that we may slip and fall but thank God and Jesus that our mistakes can be washed away. Our past can be wiped clean. When we spend time with God and Jesus. We’re making them glad. We become renewed and freed. We need the closeness to go into those battles that will confront us. Have you ever been through a battle? In a battle you may come up against some wickedness so therefore you will need to go in constant prayer and keep your armor on. You may say, “what armor?” The Armor of God.

As we get closer to God and walk with Jesus.We will build greater faith and that pleases God. We must have faith and works. They go hand and hand. When you start spending time with the Lord. You will notice something different about yourself. The beginning of “transformation” will take place. The more you pray and worship. The greater your faith.The greater your faith. The better you will feel.

You can spend time with God and Jesus anywhere and going to church will allow us to worship and fellowship but we don’t have to sit in church every Sunday in order to build a relationship with God. There’s a misconception that one must go to church from sun up to sun down in order to build a relationship or make it to heaven. Some may think that their church going is the only thing that will get them in heaven. Oh no, Satan can go to church, it takes a personal relationship with the Father and the Son. It takes repenting and living righteously. Even a God’s Word Deliverer will stumble but that doesn’t mean that they will stay down. Asking for forgiveness is important and having that in our hearts is very important. God loves us too much to not give us the tools we need to make a life after this one.

We’re made in God’s image so therefore we’re perfect but our actions may not always align with that. Even if they don’t. We have an opportunity to ask God for forgiveness and continue on the path of righteousness. Some may not agree with what’s supplied here because they may not believe that God and Jesus exist but for those who do. It’s time that we stand up and stand firm. We can’t allow Satan to swallow us up. That’s why it’s so important that we pray and ask God for guidance. If there’s weeping now. The weeps may disappear tomorrow. You never know what tomorrow will bring so be hopeful that what ever you’re going through will pass. “Stay blessed!”

He Can Work Anything and Everything out

We will go through trials and there’s no way of getting around it. Some may not understand why they have to go through what they’re going through but with faith. Those troubles can be wiped away. Of course it isn’t easy but if we believe that things will get better. We’ll get to the point where we will want to get rid of those toxicities. Anyone not being prepped to travel the same road that we’re traveling will be turned around and they will have to head in a different direction.

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.

Even when things look gloomy, God is working, He’s preparing us for something great. We have to trust him and believe that He will bring everything together. He will bring people in our lives that will assist us with our assignment. God works for the good and His son Jesus will walk with us and talk with us. We’re never alone. Yes, there will be times when fear enters in, worries will plague our minds but we must pray them away.

Anyone trying to put a dent in God’s work is working for the enemy. That’s why Ephesians 10-12 states, “10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

God allows things to happen but that doesn’t mean that He isn’t there. He cares for us and He wants us to give Him our time. Prayer makes the enemy angry and he wants us to give up on God. No matter how tough things get. We shouldn’t stop praying and believing. We will weather the storm but we must go through something in order to develop.
