And I thought, do I have that blessing? Am I believing for things that God has told me?
There is a person in my life who has wandered a way from the Lord. I used to worry until God told me to not worry. To let Him deal with this person. One day this person will be back on fire for Jesus. What an incredible day that will be. I sure hope I get to see. I no longer worry.
Another thing God has told me is "not yet" in a situation in my life I want to happen. "Not yet" means there will be a "now" time in my life for this situation. I believe Him. He never goes back on His word.
The third thing I thought of is not really a promise but it is a kind of promise. God has told me to do something (which I am doing every day). I don't quite see the value in it. The promise in this command is that there is value in it because God told me to do it. So I will not quit following this command.
Has God told you something about the future or about a loved one or about your purpose? Do you believe this? It is a whole lot more fulfilling to walk in belief rather than worry. I initially "a whole lot easier" but that is a lie. Sometimes it is so much easier to fall into worrying because worrying gets validated by the world we live in. A lot of people think that is the way to show love and concern. If you're worrying about your child you must be a great parent.
Worrying is not a form of love or concern. Worry is a form of unbelief.
If nothing comes to mind (something you're believing God for) ask Him to give you something. Ask Him to remind you what He has told you. He talks to everyone. We just have to take time to listen. The longer you believe the stronger your belief will be. And that growing belief will cause Jesus's words in John 14:12 to manifest themselves. Jesus says, "he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father."
That is a promise to grab hold of and believe! What if all believers believed that? Wow, this world would be changed!
