Do You Believe In God?

Do you believe in God? 

 

That seems like a silly question to ask someone who says he is a believer, and it may be just a play on words to some, but it is a serious question.

 

Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy? Do you believe in the Easter Bunny? You should say that you don’t to those invented images. To believe in something is to believe in its existence. But don’t stop there.

 

Do you believe in Satan and his devils? Any follower of Christ should believe that devils do exist.

The real questions is; “Do you believe God?” Just believe. Not merely believing in his existence, but what he promised, believe what he said he would do and what he would not do. Well?

 

We should know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God exists and that we have an enemy that exists, Satan; however, we should also know that God’s word is true and that Satan is the father of nothing but lies. Don’t take the enemy’s word over God’s!

 

Discerning the difference comes through reading your bible, listening to God speak through others and directly to you in your spirit, and learning what he has designated you to accomplish (your purpose).

 

For some the struggle is believing he will speak through his word in this day and age. For others, believing that what they hear through others or in their spirit is really God speaking. And, some may tussle with the idea that they even have a task or tasks that God wants them to accomplish.

 

We need to remember to look past our limitations and only believe God. Believing in his existence is not enough. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:19-20. Some people feel safe to say that they believe in God, but my friends, know that acting on God’s word backs up what you proclaim. You say you believe God, but are you justifying that by living on every word that proceeds out of his mouth? I speak to myself as well, and challenge us all to live up to the word.

 

What do you believe in, and what do you believe? The latter is the real question, and every day we must choose.
