Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) 11 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].
There’s a difference in going to God to solve a problem and letting God be the center of your life and asking him to be involved in every single thing you do. It is time to stop keeping God in our Sunday morning box and start putting him in the center of every single thing we do! God cares about us and about every single aspect of our lives.
Just because we have a bad start or stint in life it does not mean we have to have a bad finish. God has a great plan for our redemption. God wants us to reach our personal Promised Land. We all travel through the wilderness of learning how to trust God and stop living according to our fleshly desires that war against doing right. We can learn to live by grace and let God help us through every single thing that we do.
In order to live by grace we have to trust God that he knows what he is doing. That can be very difficult for our mind to get a hold of. We want to believe that God has our back but to believe it and know it in our heart takes a whole lot of faith and trust. It takes a relationship with God. To trust and have faith requires us to live beyond what we feel or actually see with our eyes. It is knowing in our heart – through continued relationship with God – that God will take care of us.
The good news is we are never alone. God is with us in our journey.
Matthew 28:20 (AMP) 20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
