Jesus said to Thomas, “have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe”. – John 20: 29. The very gift of the Holy Bible tells us to believe in Jesus and if we truly believe in him, he will work wonders in our lives. Jesus said to Martha, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God”. – John 11:40.
When Paul and Silas were in prison, they kept praying and singing hymns to God. And their praise opened the doors of the prison and set them free. When the jailor asked them how he could be saved, they answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household”. – Acts 16: 25-31.
When times get tough, it is natural for us to waiver in our belief on God. But it is during this time that we must have a strong belief that God is always watching over us and is always by our side to lift us up when we fall. We receive life when we believe in Jesus. Jesus says, “let anyone who believes in me drink”. As the scripture has said, “out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water”. – John 7:38
God will grant you everything that you ask him through prayers if you only believe. As the word promises, “whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”. – Mark 11:24. Have faith that what you ask for will be given. Have faith that what you wish for will be fulfilled. “For without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him”. – Hebrews 11:6.
“To all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God”. – John 1:12. And God loves his children so much that even when we sin on this earth, he is ready to give us eternal life if we only believe in him and turn from our sins. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life”. – John 3:16.
Believe and live……..
