Before I came to Christ I saw obstacles and hurdles no matter which way I turned. Today, they are all gone. He baptized them by his power of transformation and rendered them to serve me as stepping stones of elevation. They were rendered powerless over me and now together in Christ I step on and up over each and every one of them. His power transforms everything in our lives in an instant if choose to believe.
To all those currently reading Gods Word, I know firsthand how difficult it is to believe in some of the scriptures. Although we can clearly read the words and comprehend the meaning, there still remains a nagging inability to believe. That is the voice of doubt resounding loudly within us and up to Heaven where God’s ears are always actively listening. Doubt is not belief.
His word says:
“… if you would merely have the faith the size of a mustard seed…. ”
Faith is mounted on assured belief.
The problem is we expect to see with our eyes, instead of our spirits. If you are in Church, try this- close your eyes for a moment. You don’t need to see the pastor. For what? So that we can be distracted by his style of hair, his nice shoes, perhaps his suit, or maybe his tall stature, in other words anything and everything else but realizing it is not the pastor speaking, it is God Himself. Throw away from you all the deceptive distractive illusions of the eyes. Close them in order to believe. You know why we instinctively close our eyes in prayer? Think about it. To eliminate distractions which enables us to focus while we pour out our hearts to God. If we don’t believe then why bother praying at all? Why should we allow our own minds to imagine impossibilities that prevent us from believing and receiving the miracles that God has prepared for each and every one of us. Never should that be! We should remind ourselves constantly to turn off the mind, like a light switch, for it cannot understand God anyway, and allow our God given spirits to direct the inherent mind of our souls. That is where wisdom is found, and that wisdom teaches you how to shred doubt like swiss cheese.
Do not worry about the perceptions of others around you. Let them laugh as you hear their voices ridicule you, the last laugh is on them for lacking the courage to do what they are seeing you do, therefore they laugh cause they don’t know what else to do. The idea is too grand for them to conceive. You keep pressing forward. All of you.
Let me point this out- we all become shocked or amazed when we witness today’s popular magicians perform an act that we can’t understand.
These are men who leave the mouth of other men open in astonishment.
Think of what God can do.
Find for yourselves who is God Almighty. That Word- ALMIGHTY.
It won’t leave you with your mouth open, you’ll be leaving others with their mouths open, but not for your own sake or because of some personal power of your hand. It will be God Himself pouring out into you Himself, and He will speak directly to you as he will make known to you who He is.
Then, you will no longer doubt. The mountain of hurdles step aside as you walk in His name because they belong to him and do His will, at His command, and they do it with a smile because you are His Child, and now you belong to the beautiful breathtaking family of Creation. We sing together as we sit next to to trees, as our feet lay at the edge of the water: “God is good. All the time. Glory be to your name. ”
~Thank you Lord Jesus Christ for making my dreams come alive. For instilling in me a belief in you, that cannot be shattered. I shall harness this belief all the days of my life and I shall die in your hands of lovingly victory. ~
