WORK ON YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM

Feb 27, 2024

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [Him,] for he who comes to God MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, …

If you are going to walk and do business with God, you must believe that He is. You must believe whatever He tells you.

John 11:39-40 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been [dead] four days.” Jesus said to her, “DID I NOT SAY TO YOU that if you would BELIEVE you would see the GLORY of God?”

Each one of us must work on our belief systems in our walk with God if we want to see His glory in our affairs.

Believing is what God is asking of you and I. Do you believe the things God has spoken or revealed to you? Your actions will tell us whether you believe or not.

Throughout the scriptures, God did business with men and women who believed Him and He will do the same with us if we Believe.

Read Mark 9:20-25

A man brought his boy that was tormented by devils from childhood to the disciples and they failed to cast out the demons, but when the boy was brought to Jesus, all that Jesus required of him was to believe to be delivered.

Do you believe that God answers prayers or are you keeping up appearances; spiritual activities just as a routine without your heart’s involvement?

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

People can sing the right songs, say the right prayer and preach without an ounce of belief in their hearts.

This is what kept the children of Israel in bondage. They could not enter into the promises of God because of unbelief and an entire generation died in the wilderness. (Hebrews 3:16-19)

Hebrews 3:12 [ Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God.

The Israelites had a heart of unbelief. If there is anything you should doubt, let it be your words and fears. Never doubt God’s Word because if God is to ever do anything with you, He will send His Word.

Do not deny yourself the blessings of God; entering into His goodness and inheritance because of doubting His Word.

Work on your belief system, do not just be content with religious activities. (Revelation 3:1)

Hebrews 10:39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who BELIEVE to the saving of the soul.

There is a transformation we go through, each time we believe God’s word. That is why we must trust, depend, and rely on God’s word against all odds.

There is no single promise that won’t be fulfilled out of two thousand five hundred promises in scripture, of which two thousand have already been fulfilled and the other five hundred are yet to find expression in this Era. Keep believing!

The reason we keep seeking God is not to fulfill spiritual activities but because we believe. Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)

It is good to love people and I encourage you to do so, but only trust God because people change. You will reduce the pain in your life when you learn to trust God alone (Jeremiah 17:5 and John 2:24-25).

Men make promises however, anything can happen and interfere with the fulfillment of those promises. As long as you are a created being, you cannot put your faith in a man who has breath in his nostrils. Trust and believe in God alone. (Hebrews 13:5)

Work on your belief system so that you do not throw away your confidence because of the pressures of life. Do whatever it takes to reinforce your belief system because it is the only way you will walk and do business with God.

Matthew 11:28 If you haven’t known rest, then you do not know what you believed because rest in your soul is a sign that you have believed.
