***BELIEVE***

>> Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29)

How many of us ask ourselves what is the work of God for us? How do we fit in the bigger plan for the Kingdom of God? This verse is the answer to just that. You see, the work of God cannot be fruitful, nor productive through self. In other words if we are serving on our own strength, coming up with our own plans, and running the rat race it is considered "our work" and not the "work of God". Here is the key: THAT YOU BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT. That may seem to easy to just believe, consider this:

You will not stand up for something you do not believe in: you will not promote, share, nor bear it! If we do not fully believe with all of our heart, the Word of God to be truth, we will be paralyzed, fearful and defeated in our walk with Him. We must believe in order to move forward with power and confidence.

Many "Christians" say they are embarrassed or shy away from standing for Jesus, almost as if they were ashamed to proclaim they are Christians. How does so many that claim Jesus, lack the power, desire and assurance of Jesus? Could the answer trace back to what they believe?

Many of us believe: the lies we have been brought up with, the lies our "religions" have told us, our "traditions", our false perceptions, and the strong pull of the enemy. Unfortunately, lies distort the truth just a bit and take away from trusting in Him.

The only way to reverse the lies is to envelope yourself in His Truth. Spending quiet time with the Lord will make all the difference in what you hear and obey!!! The evidence of God's power in our lives is not in what we say, but what our actions reveal.

What do you believe in?

Great post Deb. This has been something that the Lord truly has been working on within my heart. I can say I believe all kinds of things, but would those around me say that I believe those very same things based on my actions? That is the true "test" so to speak.
And, boy do I have alot to study!

Praise God! Dee, it is all of us, a lifetime journey following God's leading and being obedient to His ways and promptings. The EVIDENCE is revealed in our actions and responses! We will follow what we Believe in! It is great to be a Believer even in our baby steps. May we all seek God more diligently (Heb11:6) and watch the rewards spiritually unfold.
