Default Do you believe?

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

Believe; in theology, to believe sometimes expresses a mere assent of the understanding to the truths of the gospel; as in the case of Simon. Acts 8. In others, the word implies, with this assent of the mind, a yielding of the will and affections, accompanied with a humble reliance on Christ for salvation. John 1:12. 3.15.

We, who believe in Jesus being the Son of God, believe not in the physical, we have not seen, heard, nor felt Him, but we believe in Him still the same. Many things we believe in we do not see, we cannot feel nor hear. We believe that when we hit the brakes on our car that they will work, we believe that when we see the sun that there will be heat, when we see the snow we believe that it will be cold, when we get on an air craft we believe that it will fly, so why is it so hard for mankind to believe in God or His Son Jesus.

Our faith should not be for tomorrow, for tomorrow may never come, our faith should be based on today. For Christ told Mary, “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” If thou wouldest believe, if we could only believe that Gods word is true, we could accomplish many things. Even Christ told us that we could do greater things than He did, but because of lack of faith and belief many are strangled in debt, naked, hungry and sick.

The toll of this world’s problems deters many from using their faith. Their belief is hanging on by a thread. The message of the seeds has come full circle on many today. “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.”

The word unfruitful simply means that their faith and works have become null and void; their testimony has become so weak that no one will listen. Many have said in the past that if a Christian is always crying I don’t want to be one.

They are being led astray from the truth, many have accepted false doctrine without seeking the answers from Gods word and without reading and studying the word we are left without a firm foundation for our belief. Our belief should make us content with whatever our state, whether we are rich or poor, our belief should make us happy and our belief should enable us to accomplish much in this world.

Satan has no hold on those that believe, no hold on those with true faith in Christ, for he has no power over a believer except when one is weak in their faith and allows Satan a foot hold on their belief. Jesus stated many times, “O ye of little faith.” Why don’t we believe, why do you doubt, why do we oft times feel sorry for ourselves and knowing that in times of peril all we have to do is call upon the Lord. We must understand that the Lord will answer our prayers in three ways, Yes, No or wait. Add to your faith, patience and wait upon the Lord for He is from everlasting to everlasting, He is in no hurry.
