How Much Do You Believe. Posted by Godly Witnesses
Recently I seen a movie called, “Heaven is For Real” and my eyes were opened to how much people believe in God. Sadly I see some attending church, saying a quick prayer, singing in a choir, and then going on with their lives as if God isn’t present in their lives. Belief is so much more than attending church once or twice a week; it should be incorporated into every minute, every second of your waking hours. The definition of belief is: an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists; something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction; trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.
To have a true belief in God is to be in complete obedience to him, to have complete trust and faith that he exist and that he is in control of not a small part of our lives but in everything. To have a true belief in God we must completely surrender to him as our Lord, Savior, Creator and Master. If you truly believe that God exist and that he will take care of you then you must never doubt his love for you. If you truly believe you would never doubt that he could handle things in your life that seem so big for you, because you would know that all things are merely minuscule to God. Remember that God created the Heaven and the Earth. Now take time to meditate on that. God created everything that you see, that you hear, that you feel. How amazing! He not only made everything but he can command the earth to move or the wind to blow. He can control the sea and the clouds.
Recently I was asked to prove God to someone that doesn’t believe and I have to ask, “Where did his belief fail?” Did his parents ever teach him about God or did they believe? Someone that truly believes in God would want their loved ones to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, because of their love for them. They would dedicate their time to telling others that Jesus saves.
I must tell you that from an early age, I had some belief in God which is much smaller to what I believe in now. My belief has grown a lot by the time that I have spent in prayer and studying God’s word, etc… If you want to have more faith and belief in God you must dedicate more time to him. He will show you things that you would have never thought of. He will show you things that can increase your faith and belief in him. He can help you have so much faith that you don’t care what others say about you, because you know that God is there with you. So my question is how much do you believe?
