“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
I remember a pastor saying that (not his exact words) faith is something that has a cap or level line on it. It continues to grow through the trials that we go through each day. And we all go through something. No matter how rich or poor, location on GODS earth, what gender or skin color. There is always something but because of faith we will get through it while praising GOD for the help.
I remember as a child what I could understand about the LORD through church and family. Just how powerful GOD is with the scriptures that was read. It has shown me that good will always conquer over evil. There is no way that evil will prevail. GOD is so perfectly good, wonderful, loving and protective of all of us who do truly love HIM. The Bible is clear on that.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
King James Version (KJV)
More verses to read on this link:
When we as humans seek to gain an understanding and the need to have GOD in our lives, it has to be developed. We need not to lean on what we understand alone. Reading the word of GOD with prayer to HIM and knowing that JESUS is the one and only way into heaven is on the way to increasing our faith.
Don’t depend on the pastor , your parents, best friends, relatives or anyone else. Depend on your prayers to GOD to be answered with CONTINUING prayer. When you pray leave it with GOD, don’t try to think for HIM. Don’t meddle in the prayer, because then you will not see how HE is helping you to get through your situation. Leaving your burdens with the LORD, knowing that GOD sent JESUS to save the world is a great comfort. You know that you will be saved from all of the heart aches of this fallen world.
But you will need to trust in the LORD GOD, and let HIM fix it. If you could fix it you would have had the complete wisdom of not to get into a complicated situation you did not expect. Your faith will give you discernment. Such discernment like if you don’t feel comfortable going down a certain street, for not knowing there may have been a large fallen tree in that road. You would have heard your inner voice and soul warning you. Your souls connection with the LORD.
You have a connection with GOD when you have faith. And you also have a connection with all who do love GOD too, and you can sense it when you meet these people even for the very 1st time in life. There is a spiritual bond, sharing a GODLY righteous high. Discernment. You want this at all times.
With your bond with GOD the FATHER you will have a natural inner happiness that those who do not want GOD in their lives we NEVER understand and feel uncomfortable around you or even hate you for no reason. For the reason that the evil spirit that is in them is not the same GODLY one that is in you.
This is why we need to increase our faith so we can stand tall depending on GOD to protect us from all harm. When these people think they have the last laugh or feel that they have defeated you, you will see them fall from their own devices and plots.
I tell you faith is what will get you through anything you are going through right now like it has for me and all of my loved ones. You will get that swing at you but you will not fall down, with the love of JESUS returning HIS powerful swing and the enemy falling down instead.
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
King James Version (KJV)
I do trust in GOD. I do accept JESUS as my savior of my soul from all of the sins I have done my whole life long. No one is without sin, no…..one! And JESUS did say this in the Bible. If you feel that you have turned away from GOD because of the sins you have done in the past, then you need to get your faith in order. It is up to you to see that YOU have to make the choice.
JESUS gave his life on the cross so we could live in total peace knowing we are forgiven. This is part of the faith, to KNOW you are forgiven because of the sacrifice JESUS gave on the cross.
Not the hail Mary, going to church and making a presence, doing nice things for your close circle of friends, being a “spiritual” person and not making the full commitment as being a religious GOD fearing, JESUS loving person, giving large donations to charities to gain favor with GOD. You can give to charities, but not to use it to pay your way into heaven. If that were the case there would be all kinds of people paying their way into heaven. It would be worse than it is here on earth then….complete havoc.
The devil is a liar. If you feel that the sins you have done will keep you from getting into heaven he has lied to you. JESUS came to earth to save you and ALL of mankind who love , believe and trust in HIM. JESUS went through a lot of abuse , torment , pain, and to give HIS life on the cross just to prove this point! Don’t listen to the devil, he got you into the bad situation and is lying to keep you in it. Lying saying JESUS will not help you. HE has proven HE has forgiven you by what HE did on the cross. Dwelling on this earth as a man for 33 years being treated mean, abused and seeked after to be killed by the very people HE came to save from the sins they have done. Some did listen and were saved. Unfortunaly some stayed stubborn and will not be let into heaven.
JESUS is the savior for all of the world. No matter what you were told about you being too bad, it is still up to you what road you take from here on. Up to you. Gain your faith so that if you have children, spouses, parents, loved ones and friends that they will be saved too. You do not want your children to die and be sent to hell right? Well neither does our heavenly FATHER GOD want that for any of us.
I pray that this will bring a blessing to the reader of this post, and for sharing this post as well so others will be ecouraged to increase or gain their faith in GOD.
