Have Faith to Believe in the God you serve.
Believe in His love for you, and that He loves you so much that He will never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)
Even during those times when you feel most alone, remember that He is right there watching over you, hoping you will simply look to the hills and see Him – realizing that He’s right there, and that He’s been there all along. (Psalm 121)
Have faith to believe that God is with you, that His anointing is available for you to keep you and to walk in His perfect will. Yes you can live holy and pure before God. It’s in you. His power is in you. His ability is in you. It’s God who works in you to give you the desire to do His will in the first place. (Philippians 2:13) With every expectation from God He always makes a way. He always makes provision so that you can successfully walk it out. (1 John 5:4, 2 Corinthians 2:14)
Have faith to believe in God’s love in you working through you – causing you to love the unlovable and forgive those who wronged you whether intentionally or unintentionally. The power to forgive is within you, all you have to do is acknowledge and activate it with love. (Romans 5:5)
Have faith to believe in love again.
Sure you may have been hurt in the past, but don’t allow that hurt to dictate your present or your future. Allow God to heal your heart and open it to love again in due season. In the meantime, learn to love yourself and embrace God’s love for you, and the fact that He loves you so much that He sent His very best, His own Son, Jesus, to die for you.
Have faith to believe in yourself.
Believe that what God has for you is for you, including the plan and perfect will He has laid out for your life before the foundation of the world. (Jeremiah 1:5, Ephesians 1:4)
Believe that still small voice you hear when you pray – believe that it’s God speaking to you as long as it lines up with His Word. (1 Kings 19:12)
Believe that whatever He asks you to do that you can do it, and that there is always a great reward on the other side of obedience, even if that reward mainly comes from within. (Hebrews 11:6)
Have faith to believe…again…don’t lose hope…keep believing…keep confessing…keep walking out God’s plan for your life with joy.
And Nehemiah continued, “…This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!” Nehemiah 8:10 (NLT)
