To Live What I Believe

I keep thinking about what was shared yesterday
between me and God, then me and you . . .

What if I were to live believing 100% in Psalm 121?

Don’t get me wrong—I DO believe it 100% already!!!
I just don’t LIVE like I believe it . . .

I want to live believing without doubt—knowing experientially!
And not tangled within Satan’s lies that . . .
I do not deserve that kind of loving.
I fall short of being acceptable. 
I am not worthy of attentive care and protection. 

The fact is God loves me, deemed me worthy of Jesus 
and Him within makes me acceptable!

I have experienced God’s love personally and uniquely.  Yet down deep, the Lord has shown me that I have unwillingly and unknowingly come to believe some ugly lies Satan spreads.  And this has hampered belief in my soul—my mind, will and emotions.

I am loved, protected and cared for!
God is in control!
And He is faithful, dependable and good!

This is truth!  Truth I believe!  Truth I walk in . . . in part. 
Truth I want to not doubt.

That’s what our enemy does.  He makes us doubt God.  From the very first, with Eve—his intentions were to get her to doubt what God had said.  And that is what he continues to do with you and me today.

If we doubtwe are less a threat to his kingdom on earth.
If we believewe walk in full power and authority for the Kingdom of Heaven.

I am weeding through this, but here is where I start today . . .

I commit to being more active & less passive in these 6 areas:

  1. Take control over thoughts. (2 Cor. 10:1-6)
  2. Come against the evil one in power and authority. (James 4:7)
  3. Meditate more on the Word. (John 15:1-11)
  4. Believe God! (Hebrews 11:6)
  5. Stop worry and fear at the doorstep of my mind. (Luke 12:22-32)
  6. Let ALL my requests be made known to God. (Phil. 4:6, 7)

      {Lots more verses than these given—do some searching on!  J }

God longs to see us rest in Him—trusting Him completely. 
We have all come far. 
He will bring us the rest of the way.

That is certain!

Do you struggle with living out what you believe in certain areas?
What is holding your faith back?
