Q: Why do you trust in God?
A: Because He has proved Himself faithful, trustworthy and truthful to His Word, the Bible.
Q: Why is He worthy of so much praise, worship and focus?
A: Because He made everything we know about, even you and I, and still loves us amazingly.
Q: What makes you so adamant that you are right about God?
A: 1. If you look objectively at the world, those who obey Him are blessed measurably. 2. His nature proves it in its glory and perpetuity. 3. The Bible has never been proven incorrect in any point despite much effort to try. 4. God has fulfilled every prophecy up to the end times prophecies, which will be fulfilled very soon.
Q: Aren’t there many ways to God and therefore heaven?
A: The only way is through the grace and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our sinless sacrifice and baptism of water and Spirit. The only way is Jesus.
Q: How do you know?
A: The Bible said it and Jesus Christ said it and again, it has been proven very reliably to be the truth.
Q: Do you ever doubt?
Q: Why not?
A: Because my own life is a testament to the truth of it all. When I obeyed the Bible and stayed close to Jesus through prayer, Bible reading and obedience, God blessed and provided for me and molded me into a humble and therefore useful follower of Christ. And He gives me such a peace and joy and sense of loving family andfulfillment/contentment that I have never experienced apart from Him.😄❤
I was just thinking about my daddy. He passed two years ago now and I often remember him fondly. His greatest legacy was one of faith. He was faithful. Not just was he a faithful husband to my mom but he was all in, faithful to the core to his faith, his family, his country, his beliefs, his land. He did not stop being what he believed in my whole life. And that is why I am the way I am and believe so strongly in being faithful, being all in to God, my family, my country, my beliefs. It carries down.
Be faithful, dads. You are doing great. Even if you screw up a bit, just swallow that pride and ask forgiveness.. wives and kids are in general very forgiving… and keep being faithful. Or start today to make that legacy to pass down, it is never too late. Just please do keep working at it. You are the head of your house/family and families are why America is so great. You are vitally important to make or break everything, which is proved by how heavily society is attacking you. Be courageous, be all in and be faithful. Like my daddy, the best man who ever walked the earth (other than the God-man Jesus, of course).❤
Having faith involves trust, risk and works.
Trust is believing God tells us the truth in the Bible no matter what else is going on. We trust God will do what He says and is who He says.
Risk is the not knowing how God is working in the background and it may be very different than you imagine. Yes, we risk getting into something uncomfortable when we obey and trust God. God is still in control and we have to trust again.
Faith without works is dead. Stepping out in faith is an action. You cannot step while sitting on your butt. Faith in God is getting out there.
Faith involves trust, risk and works. And I venture that discipline or self-control, humility and ownership also play an integral role in living a life of faith.
And a close prayer life and relationship with God will makeup for any little weakness we possess naturally. That is the key to everything in life really. Simple truth.❤
1. God can do absolutely anything He wants to do.
2. He will not do anything against His character or Word.
3. God’s ways are higher than ours and He sees the past, present and future all at once and lives in them all because He is not bound by time like we are.
4. God is the Great Physician because He knows us better than anyone because He lovingly made us.
5. Faith releases His healing n in our lives.
6. (Here is the difficult one:) Sometimes He heals differently than we want but it is always for His and our best.
7. Healing can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual but God always heals the way you truly need it best at the moment you humbly pray for healing.
8. You may still have the physical impairment because He needs you to know He is enough for you and you have not learned that yet or so you may help others.
9. God always wants and works for what is best for His work and you.
10. Trust is faith that God has healed you in the way you need it and that He is in loving charge of you.❤
Without questioning it before, I have heard “When God closes the door, look for a window.” And I used to think that was good advice. Now, I see it as very faith-simple. Why, with the Lord, do we have to even have an opening to go through? We only have to believe in God and His plan big enough and humbly pray to that end and He will certainly provide whatever way He knows is best to accomplish the task. To limit God’s power to a pre-made opening is either too tiny in the faith department, not believing the Bible’s truth that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13), ignorance of either or a lack of contrition/humility. God can do absolutely anything and needs nothing but faith and a humble and earnest request to accomplish it as long as it glorifies Himself and He is in agreement. That is faith. That we don’t need an opening, just faith and humble prayer. ❤
To live life unafraid only happens with love from God and faith and trust in Him. Fear is a strong liar that can only be defeated by powerful, truthful love. And God is love. He actually is our only source of love (and goodness) in this universe. Therefore, God’s love defeats fear and our faith and trust in God unleash the power of God/love into our life to do the work. “Perfect love casts out all fear” is another way to say “Faith and trust in God casts out all fear”. And that makes me smile.❤
Laying down your burdens to the Lord requires the first step of laying down your pride and tight grip on these burdens. We fixate on the problems and thus they grow while our faith hangs put on the sidelines and shadows waiting its use. We need to humble our heart and visualize placing our problems/burdens at the foot of Jesus who can actually help and grab our faith up and then let go of those burdens. Then focus on God who just helped you yet again and thank Him for it. Ponder His amazing ability to handle every problem in the world simultaneously. Really try to n wrap your head around that and then be thankful that such a powerful God delicately made you and sustains you because of His enormous, unfathomable love for you.❤❤❤
