IF I really believed that God answered my prayers, I would pray more, and pray with more confidence.
IF I really believed that He loves me with all His heart, I would want to be with Him all the time.
IF I really believed that HIS purpose for me is more important than my purpose for me, I’d be determined to find out what that is and pursue it with all my heart.
IF I really believed that He rewards my faith, I’d be sure to do everything in my power to cultivate extreme faith for every area of my life. I would be tenacious about it.
IF I really believed that I am created to love with His love, and be filled with His peace, then I’d pursue those things every single day. I would never give up on other people or on myself.
IF I really believed that I am filled with His Spirit, then I would pray for people -not against them. I would not allow my thoughts, words and my actions to deviate from the boundaries of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.
IF I really believed that He enjoys my company, delights in my growing knowledge of His goodness, and that He longs for me to live in His blessing and favor, and kindness, then I would be sure that those thoughts remained uppermost in my mind and my heart. I would enjoy the pleasure of His company.
IF I really believed that I have what I say, I’d watch what I say and say what He says.
IF I really believed that God is who HE says He is and I am who HE says I am, then my whole life would wrap itself around those Truths and I would stop believing less of Him and less of me.
How would our lives change IF we really believed God?
How would the world change IF we really believed God?
