Having faith and believing in something greater than yourself is something that I believe that we all question at one point or another in our lives. Why are we here? Why was I born? What is my purpose? What is life? Is there really a God? Are among some of the others.
Other people can tell you what they believe and try to answer these questions for you. But I believe that each of us must seek these answers for ourselves. You may see how faith works in someone else's life but we each must seek the truth for ourselves. No one can give it to you. It can't be passed down. No one can make you. And you are not going to receive it just by going to church every Sunday.
It's much deeper than that, you have to want it for yourself. You have to make it personal. Your life is personal and your walk with God is even more personal. We each have to become curious enough, needy enough or helpless enough to believe wholeheartedly. To seek God's truth without expectations or preconceived thoughts.
When you take it personally, you allow God's truth to be revealed to you exactly how God delivers it to you. Which increases your faith as you grow in a deep personal relationship with Him. There are some things that only God can do. This is one of them. Allow Him to give you a testimony.
It's about your salvation, your repentance, your growth, your walk with Christ. Your comfort, peace and joy. Your deliverance, restoration and breakthroughs. Receiving your blessings and anointing. This is between you and God. What can be more personal than that?
If you never take it personal, you are missing out...
John 14:6 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 1:10-13 10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
James 4:6-10 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and he shall lift you up.
James 4:88Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
