The Power Of Believing [ Part 1 ]

There is a place in God and in our dealings with His Word where our believing becomes tangible and as three dimensional as the physical existence around us.

In the world of faith and belief we constantly confront the impossible and insurmountable. However, we can stand back and watch natural circumstances and situations melt like wax under the heavy onslaught of faith in God’s Word. This is true because we stand on the declaration of Jesus: ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:23 [ NIV ]).  What a promise! God gives believers authority over the affairs of life. As the apostle Paul writes, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ” (Romans 7:17).

To such a member of the body of Christ, all situations can be overcome and nothing is impossible. According to the scripture there is nothing in this physical or even spiritual world which can entrap or hinder the believer: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.“(Romans 8:28). We also stand on this authority: “ …greater is that he is in you, than he that is in this world.” (1 John 4:4).

When we establish a “believing fellowship” with the Lord, the circumstances and situations of life are swallowed-up by the ” FAITH SHOCK-ABSORBERS ” of God’s Word.

Heart: Our Life Storage

45 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.”

– Luke 6:45

Whatever is in your heart, it will always come out in your life.  The things that we learn and put in our heart are the things that will define our personality.  Most of the time, it is our heart working in our lives.  Our heart carries all the emotions and our mouth confesses it.  We should guard our heart from unnecessary things so it won’t affect our tongue.  For our tongue holds on to what our heart and mind contains.  A good man brings good things out of the good things store in his heart.  So, whatever we see, hear and experience… we should choose the right thing to be treasured in our heart.

 

47 I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”

– Luke 6:47-48

The Bible tells us all – everything that we need to know and learn, from the beginning up to the end.  It covers the whole thing about life.  Whenever we hear (read) something from it, we should consider and take it into practice, because it is a commandment from the Lord.  It is our guide in living a life close to Him.  We should put the Words of our God in our heart, mind and soul and stick to it so we will never be shaken.  His Word is the foundation of our faith within.

Strangers are Angels

“Keep on loving each other as brothers.  Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.”

– Hebrews 13:1-2

We must spread the love all over the world.  This is not just about sharing knowledge but caring on one another.  Let’s start the love to the ones we’re closed to – our family, friends, classmates, and co-workers.  We must show them our support.  We must let them know that we’re happy for what they have achieved in their lives.  For when a person knows that someone is looking forward to him/her, he/she is being motivated then he/she would probably persevere more and more.

In life, we must treat all the other people around us equally.  We must not underestimate someone or overestimate them.  We should consider them the way we want to be considered.  In that case, we are portraying equality, no discrimination and no domination.  It is better if we treat everyone as our brothers and sisters, and love them just like our own blood generation.

Therefore, we must entertain strangers, for by doing so; they will be blessed because an angel of the Lord came to share with them the blessings we had just received.  And yes! We’re all angels of God, sent in disguise but with a purpose. We should touch their hearts to inspire them, to make their life fruitful and alive in Christ. Because through us, the goodness of the Lord is reflecting on our own manner of life.

And so sometimes, we should learn on how to cope up with their environment, not necessarily to imitate them fully. But we must let them feel or see that he/she is not alone, that we belong together in Christ Jesus. We must humble ourselves to let them feel that they are in the right place and the right company, that we share a lot of common things in the leading of God’s will. Also, we are able to build a relationship that is full of understanding, that will help us explain what the Lord commands us to do, and that would help us to improve our ability to interact.
