DO YOU NOW BELIEVE??...July 9th 07


Jeremiah 29:11
"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."


I apologize for not writing last weeks WORD [sign in to see URL] said wait. I didnt know why until this morning....

DO WE BELIEVE?

There is power in what we believe. There is power becase God gave us power by giving us his [sign in to see URL] us the truth. What was the one thing Jesus prodded the apostles about more than anything? CAN YOU BELIEVE??

Jesus promises that if we have faith as small as a mustard seed we could move and WOULD move mountains!! (Matt 17:20)

Studying scipture you come to the point where all knowledge is at your grasp. God says he has made is all clear for us and has revelaed all things to us.

So why do we struggle so in the dark? Is it becase God is holding back on us? NO, surely not.

We struggle because most times we fail to beleive what we know!!! Does God love us and promise not to harm us (Jer 29:11) and that he knows what is best for us? YES!! So why do we worry?

WHen we come to a time in our lives, when nothing makes sense or our circumstances seem to demand a robbery of our hope or of Gods love in us. We must stop and remember that our King loves [sign in to see URL] we are facing a time of trial and [sign in to see URL] matter how dark things seem or how hard things hit us we must [sign in to see URL] prayed for us in John 17. He prayed we would be one and he prayed that we would not lose hope but would run the race well.

Are you in a time of darkness or doubt? Is fear having its way within you this day? Can you stand firm and know that there is hope in the one who loves you no matter how hard the circumstances hit you or where God wants to lead you?

Even the darkest of times God is with [sign in to see URL] promises that if something is going on that harms us that it is not his doing. Yet he also says that int he promise Jesus has secured for [sign in to see URL] matter [sign in to see URL] HAVE HOPE!!!

Stand fast my brothers and sisters and do not be entangled with the yoke of bondage. HAVE HOPE!!!! For through bright days and dark [sign in to see URL] Lords promise is real!!

Find hope in the [sign in to see URL] Jesus will see us through to the brighter tommorow!

Re: DO YOU NOW BELIEVE??


You know, The Lord never ceases to amaze me! When I NEED something, when I need to be reminded of His love, His protection, His promises, He seems to fulfill that NEED in the most unsuspected places. So it was today, and the answer is YES. I do believe.
The biggest stumbling block in my walk has always been FEAR and DOUBT. On a larger scale, I think that FEAR and DOUBT are the biggest challenges facing mankind as a whole. When I stop focusing on Jesus Christ, fear and doubt always seem to sneak in. I end up thinking crazy stuff like "What if?......Is it really?......Am I sure?" I'm only human and a part of the "drive-through" generation. I want [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] who. And if I don't get it right away, I get FEARFUL and tend to DOUBT. What has happened ultimately, is that I have lost sight of Christ. My KNOWING(Hope) is being threatened, because I have momentarily forgotten what I BELIEVE. I KNOW that His goodness and mercy follow me all the time, because I BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for my sake and therby has insured my future, both in the here-and-now and in the infinite. When I stay focused on Christ, I remember what I BELIEVE, and then, what I KNOW is constantly strengthened. At that point, fear and doubt go up in smoke. That being said; challenges, the future and such take on a proper prospective. Then Hope becomes a by-product of belief. If we stay focused on Jesus Christ and follow as the Holy Spirit leads (and come on folks, as Born Again Christians, we KNOW what is of the Holy Spirit and what is not- That's where God's gift of his Word comes in) we cannot fail. All things will work for good.
Maybe not exactly as we thought things would happen, but ultimately we will be refreshed in the love of Christ.
Like I said, [sign in to see URL], these are things that challenge us daily individually, and as citizens of this world.
Hey Jayme, thanks again for helping to keep us focused on Jesus Christ and the power of our Belief!

God Calling, AJ Russell, editor

I grew up in hellfire and brimstone churches and left them believing that God was this big entity just waiting to send me straight to hell. (I think those sorts of churches serve their purpose and can be very good, just not for me!)

The result was that I didn't even believe for 20 years. Things happened that made me believe again, however. Thank God for that!

God Calling is a good daily reading thing to keep us centered in the idea that God is always with us. He is, especially during the hard, dark days. He's right there. He only wants the best for us. Sometimes it takes the worst of times to lead us to the best He's got in store.

Father.

There's a reason this name is used. He is our Father, with all the "good" that that brings to us. He loves us, unconditionally, and only wants what's best.
He's there.
