Give Me a Believing Heart

But not everybody is ready for this, ready to see and hear and act. Isaiah asked what we all ask at one time or another: “Does anyone care, God? Is anyone listening and believing a word of it?
— Romans 10:16

We must be ready at all times to receive the messages of God. We receive the messages of God by first making a decision. When we decide to listen, believe, and receive all that God offers us through the finished work of Christ, faith comes.

Our hearing the Word of God creates faith in God in our hearts. How do we get ready to receive the promises of God after we have made a decision to listen and believe? We get ready by keeping the Word of God before our eyes, hearing the Word of God often, and acting upon our beliefs from His Word.

The Holy Spirit creates a desire in each of us to believe God. I have discovered that we don't experience the victories that we desire in our lives because of unbelief. Unbelief is a hindrance to the Word of God and the place in our minds where the enemy wants to keep us from receiving all that God has for us.

Everything is possible to the one who believes. Today choose to believe...

Believe in what? Believe in who? Believe in the Word of God by placing your faith in God. And believe in the One that God sent, Jesus. Jesus came to show you who God is and demonstrate the Father's love to you. Only the Holy Spirit can create in you a believing heart as you partner with Him. Do you believe that?

Decree It: Heaven and earth will pass away, but God's words will never pass away. I receive His message today by seeing, hearing and acting upon the Word of God. I have a believing heart! I believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
