I’m not sure how my words will find you when you read them, but I pray that they find you well and bring you hope and perspective.
Our belief in God makes it possible to believe in His existence, and this morning as I was getting ready, I was reminded of all the promises that God has made over the lives of my wife and me. I could hear the words of this simple phrase being spoken within me: God, I believe You.
You see, I have had many doubtful moments in my life, not many that doubted God’s existence, but of my worthiness. I have, in fact, questioned my value many times and have been left wondering if someone like me is even worthy of all that He has promised to give me. It never really was a doubt in His ability but more so in my ability to accomplish the tasks that He was placing before me, because, like Moses in Exodus 4:10-13, I too, had some imperfections that I believed would hinder me from completing the excellence of His work.
There are so many things that have caused me to feel this way – so many that I don’t have the time to mention in one setting.
But I am evolving, growing, and learning more and more about me, and I am beginning to see more and more of the person that God sees when He looks at me. I have no desire to return to the things nor places that caused me to feel this way, and every day I grow farther and farther away from them.
So, God, I believe You, and today I find myself standing ready to receive all that You have promised. I am who I am because of You, and whatever You say will be, in the Name of Jesus, Amen!!!
I’m not waiting another day to see the value of my worthiness, and, Beloved, you shouldn’t either. If God says we’re ready, then we’re ready. We don’t have to have it all together because He has arranged and orchestrated all of the components and all of the missing pieces. I believe, Dear Reader, and you should, too.
I believe God as Abraham did in Genesis 15:5-6, and I know that His covenant with me will stand forever.
I’ve seen Him answer prayers that I didn’t pray, and at times I’ve even tried to run from His blessings because surely there had to be someone better chosen and more worthy that He had in mind. But I believe that I am worthy, Dear Reader, and you should, too.
God has often seen things in me that I didn’t see in myself, and to be honest, I’m glad He did. Because of this, I have His perspective, and I now know that I am more than enough!!! I believe, Beloved, and you should, too.
Dear Reader, I pray that you will continue to trust God even in the most difficult places, because He will see to it that you make it to the destination of His promises. I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is my prayer that this column will make you feel as though you have a place to belong and somewhere to call home.
