Moving to believe God

June 9, 2007

I have been reviewing a book and teachings by author Beth Moore that I was first exposed to about two years ago. It had significant impact on my life. If you have never heard or read Beth’s teachings you are missing a great resource. Men, don’t overlook her because she is often presented as a speaker for women. Her teachings are not gender specific.

The book I have been going through is called Believing God. It takes a deep look at the difference between believing in God and believing God. A lot of people believe in God. According to a Barna poll “83% of Americans identified as Christians, yet only 49% of these individuals described themselves as absolutely committed to Christianity.” Believing in God is different than living a life where we actively believe God. “Just one-quarter of adults posses an active faith, meaning they engage in all three of these activities (pray, attend church, and read the Bible in a typical week).”

Believing God means we believe what he says, believe he has relationship with us and will answer our prayers, believe that he is alive and active in our lives and our world. Are you only believing in God, or are you willing to have a relationship where you truly believe God? What difference would it make in your life to believe God? Are you ready to love him with your entire heart, soul, mind, and strength?
