But How Many Truly Believe In That God Today?
Even the devil believes in God with trembling. So, we ought to do better than him as people of God. Do we live by God's standards today? Or, are we just using Him as a remedy out of many possibilities.
We must all know now that God is never desperate to use anyone, but that we might make our lives meaningful; is why He calls us. God doesn't need us, but we need Him.
'His hands are not short that He cannot (do things for Himself)'
If we believed in God, we would be faithful to Him. Then His words concerning our situation would not seem void. God is faithful, though we are always proven to be liars. If we waited, everything always works out for our good.
If we truly believed we would see God's glory. It takes a very thin line to cross from a place of obscurity and destitute, into God's glory and power. That thin line is called absolute consecration and faith.
To literally see God by one's faith is to completely trust Him for all things and in all situations. Never looking at Him as having disappointed, if things did not go as we wanted.
'Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.' Psalm 23:4
Quite so, because even in His seeming inaction; He is actually doing very much that we may not see, just yet. God's purpose is always being done in all and through all things.
Most of us have the appearance of belonging to God, but we never take a stand for Him and the core values He instructs. Let us be for God indeed, in our hearts, going forward. Let us walk with God with conviction, not just because anyone says so. Nor, because it makes us feel respectable in society
'Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him; and even when you saw it, you did not afterward repent and believe him.' Matthew 21:31,32
I would stop making a show of my walk with God today. Is it not time too for you to make that change? It's not for anyone else, it's not a pretense; but it is for my love for God.
Dear God, please give me grace to follow You and your ways, simply and truly. Thanks.
