‘And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.’ Hebrews 11:6 (NLT)
The year is running to a close and there might be some pressing needs you are looking to cover. Somebody might have advised you to pray to God and that he,God, will meet your needs. The truth is, yes, he can meet your needs but first you must believe him. Believe that he exists. Believe that he is God and that none is greater than him. Believe that he can answer your prayers. Believe that he can meet those needs of yours. Don’t pray to him like you are trying out. Don’t approach God like he is an alternative. Approach him with faith and confidence. Approach and regard him as the ultimate. God will meet the needs of his own as his name has to be honoured and to be seen as his own, you must be a person who has faith in him.(The definition of faith is in Hebrews 11:1)
One very crucial thing about your belief in God is that it must be absolute. The totality of your faith in God puts you in a position for maximum impact. To be an absolute believer, you must be somebody who has a resolution of ‘It’s only God I trust for this, no other source do I place my hope on’.No alternative whatsoever. God must be everything to you. And being in a position for maximum impact is simply occupying a vantage position for the receipt of any blessing the Lord has for those who place their trust in him.
To my friends who believe in God already: Now,as I learned from a friend, time is in God, God is not in time, this means that God is not time-bound by your own watch to answer your prayers. As his own, he sees you and knows what you NEED and WHEN it’s best you get it. So, if you’ve asked the father for something and you are still waiting to see an answer manifest physically, I beseech you to be patient and wait on the Lord in thanksgiving. An approach of faith is to believe that you have received the answer already and that in God’s time, there will be a physical manifestation of it.
‘If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.’ John 15:7 (NIV)
So long you meet the condition in the verse above, trust him to reward you as someone who sincerely seeks him and had believed in him first.
God bless you.
