Mankind, without exception spends much of their life searching for a place to invest their faith or a reason to believe in something they perceive as worthy. So, let me ask you this question, what do you believe? Have you taken an inventory of what you believe? If you have identified what you believe, have you asked yourself the question, why do I believe, what I believe? What is the constant truth in what you believe? What or who stabilizes your belief? Can who or what you believe in sustain you throughout your life’s journey? The process of your belief may change as your journey transitions. However, the essence and centrality of your belief must be constant.
For throughout life’s journey what you believe will be tested again and again. What do you believe is the foundation on which you stand in this ever-changing journey called life? Your belief plays a major role in your behavior and in shaping your character. What you believe advises you to aspire or acquiesce, to rejoice or retreat, to worship or worry, to stand or settle. For every leg in the race that you must run, what you believe is the advisor that influences your action or inaction. However, every day brings a new opportunity to believe something different or build upon what you already believe.
To believe is the ability to be made firm, to be sure, to be lasting.
What do you believe today? What do you believe about your life, your future, your dreams and your destiny? What do you believe about you? After you have considered that, then consider the other dimension of the question, which is the source of what you believe? It is fine to believe in something but what is the source of the belief? Who fuels what you believe? Who keeps what you believe consistent? To whose charge do you place what you believe? In whom do you believe and does this person have the power, ability and capacity to hold what you believe and bring it to pass?
Today consider in whom and what you believe. Know that Jehovah is constant and never changing. You can rest assured today that you can depend on Him and put your trust and belief in Him. The scripture in Hebrews 11:6 says it like this, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Invest your faith and believe in Him for all aspects of your life today.
Prayer: Father, today I believe in You. I believe in Your constant power as God and in Your love as my Father. I commit my life into Your hands today. As I walk through this day in faith believing in You, may my thoughts, words and life please you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
