WHY IS IT SO HARD TO BELIEVE?
Main Scripture: Mark 11:23 & 24
I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain “May you be lifted and thrown into the sea and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart!”.
I tell you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
The truth of God’s word – If you BELIEVE; you will RECEIVE! That is if you believe it – you will receive it and it will be yours – you’ll have it / it will belong to you.
We all want it, whether it’s a better life, a way out, a healthy body, a sound and stable mind, a vibrant and blessed family or everlasting life in heaven; we all want the good things that God has to offer us.
These things are spiritual blessings – blessings we get because we belong to God. Ephesians talks a bit more about them.
All Praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessings in the heavenly realm because I am united with Christ JESUS! We want God to provide salvation, deliverance and healing for ourselves and our loved ones.
Yes, we all want GOD’S GIFTS & BLESSINGS.
So why do so many Christians live lives void of God’s basic blessings of healing, deliverance and divine provision. They live lives full of sickness/disease, under the bondage of alcohol or other addictions, in lack/poverty or sin bondage and slave to some other kind of evil/sin.
It’s simple – They REFUSE to BELIEVE!
Mark 11:23 & 24 – You will have what you BELIEVE in your HEART!
If you believe in healing – say so, pray and IT WILL BE YOURS! –The word of God IS [TRUE]
Why is it so hard to Believe? Little children BELIEVE and are TRUSTING! As adults, as we get older and have various experiences it gets harder and harder to believe and not become cynical or hard hearted, but in order to produce CHILD LIKE FAITH we must BELIEVE IN GOD and his ability to move mountains.
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.
How do we receive the kingdom of God? By having faith – so the passage could read – Anyone who does not have faith like a child will not receive the kingdom of God – what God has for us here and in heaven. We must have child like faith to get anything from God. Salvation is by faith, healing is by faith and so is deliverance.
Why is so hard to believe?
- Time and Experiences
As we get older our belief system is tied to our experiences
- Doubt and Unbelief
At times, we believe but we not sure and do not fully trust in God’s love and precious word.
- The Sense Realm and Seeing
Many Christians live by seeing and experiences, instead of believing. They want to feel and experience the blessings before they can really believe they have them, but in God’s kingdom it is the other way around – BELIEVE and then you’ll SEE.
2nd Corinthians 5:7
For we live by believing and not by seeing.
The above reasons steal faith and stop miracles and stop God’s blessings from coming to FULL FRUITION!
Why is believing so hard? It shouldn’t be, in fact it should be easy. Believing is simply TRUSTING JESUS and BELIEVING GOD’S WORD!
If you believe you will be SAVED, HEALED and DELIVERED. In who and what should you believe – BELIEVE IN GOD and HIS EVERLASTING WORD.
Believe in God’s love – Believe in Jesus, the Saviour of the world – Accept and confess Christ JESUS and experience salvation – this happens by declaring His Lordship (His greatness over all things) and fully repenting and coming to Him TOTALLY – Then you will experience his peace, joy, wisdom, comfort and answered prayers etc.
Can you believe? It’s so simple – Don’t make it hard! Believe God and His word and receive all what Christ Jesus, our lord has provided for us.
