Little children usually automatically believe what their parents tell them, and that is how God wants us to be with Him. He wants us to believe what He says in His Word! Christians are often referred to as “believers,” and believers should believe! Are you a believing believer, or a doubtful believer? Simple childlike faith produces a lot of good fruit. For example, joy and peace are found in believing (Romans 15:13). Doubt, reasoning, worry, and fear produce all kinds of misery, but it all can be avoided by making a decision to believe the Word of God. Believe that something good is going to happen to you. Believe that when you repent, your sins are completely forgiven. Believe that God wants to meet all of your needs, that He loves you and is always willing to help you.
When we believe, then we can enter the rest of God and really enjoy each day of our lives. We can take life one day at a time and trust that our future is secure in God.
Lord, help me to live my days one day at a time, to live without worries and fears in all I do let put you first and honor you always. In Jesus name.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Then they inquired, “What must we do to perform the works of God?”
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who sent Me.
Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me
