Mark 9:24 “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”
I am in a season of tests and trials. In my many circumstances of attack from the devil, one thing stands true: I MUST TRUST AND BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAYS. When I look over my life right now and see how much that I am dealing with now, I can't help my human nature when it starts to sway. I tend to put a spotlight on my situations and make them the center of attention. So I am making it a point to strengthen and empower my belief in these uncertain times.
One thing I do notice from a lot of people, including myself, is when the storms of life start raging around them and in them, their belief becomes shaky. I see uncertainty all over from not knowing what to do or how to do it. We know our God is faithful to His word but it seems like an everyday battle just to believe. When things are going right in our lives, we tend to, of course, be happier and have no worries. We profess our beliefs at the drop of a hat and smile bright as the sunny days in Houston. Then comes those times of despair when we get the dark clouds over our heads and rainy days seem to follow us around. The boat gets to rocking and our belief goes overboard to drown in despair. It is always easier said than done to believe that your situation is going to work in your favor. It is a hard task at hand to focus on God when it seems as though the devil is having a party in your house. It is difficult when trying times try you from every angle and push you to the edge of giving up. Yes, we are perplexed and bewildered at a point in time but we must remember that when the enemy is in our life on the attack, believing God is our only weapon for war.
Belief is what we choose to do everyday. Belief is not something that we put to the side once we have finished playing with it. Belief comes with our faith. Belief is what we need to seek out and grasp with our hearts. If I were to put action with Believe this is what I suggest:
B - Boldness - Declare in your situation that you will trust in God and hope for the better. Bravery comes from your assurance and God's possibilities.
E - Excitement - Raise your head to the sky and don't be down in the dumps. God has a great plan for your life.
L - Love - Your hearts desire will come through with God's love towards your circumstances. Love the lessons learned.
I - Inspire - Reach out and help others who may be going through what you already experienced. Don't take your problem as an assault against you but receive it as a weapon for your future instructions.
E - Enjoyment - Live life to the fullest. Benefit from the abundance that God has promised you.
V - Victorious - Claim the victory in your situation even if you are still going through it. Take what God is showing you to build yourself up.
E - Endurance - Don't give up. Use your faith and let God fight your battles. The road may be long but God rewards the righteous.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
