Believing in God, is the most positive virtue to exercise. The bible says all things are possible to them who believe. (Mark 9:23). Believe in God awakens every dying energy in you and makes you keep winning all the way through. Unbelief in God is the worse of influences that can operate in men. Unbelief is what causes a man to marry a dog or a man to use his neighbor for money ritual. Every ‘foolish’ thing or act can be committed by men in the face of unbelieve in God. Unbelief would awaken every negative power or force to cause you to fail. Believing in yourself is a great deception of the enemy.
True believing in God begins with a repentance from all deceptions of the enemy. And accepting whatever God says in His word. The bible calls it, renewing the mind in Romans 12:2. As we feed our lives with the word, believing whatever it says our lives are transformed in to higher levels of being or experiences.
God’s word is a mystery. It has a supernatural potential to make us whatever it talks about. Believing whatever we have read brings about this experience. Many people have heard so much, yet they remain the same, why? They do not believe what they have been hearing or listening to. Through believing these exceeding great and pressures promises we become partakers of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world ,through lust or unbelieve(2 Peter1:4) .There is a force and power of decay that sin released into mankind and in creation as a whole. (Rom 8:2)Believing in the word sets up in us a higher law that totally renders this power of decay inoperative and making us free (Mark 16:15-17).
The meaning of believe in the Ghanaian languages simply means to take and eat or swallow. It also means to place your survival on it. Dare to believe whatever the word of God tells you. Please spend some moments to meditate on what Psalm 119:89-90 says “Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth”.
Lastly the power in the word is set into operation by saying or speaking forth that which you have believed. (Rom 10:9&10,2nd Corinth 4:13)
