I mean seriously I got a few people who have told me before that I’m wasting my time, the bible is just a book with stories, you cannot see God, so why do you believe in Him..etc. Well I got to thinking awhile back..and let me see if I can tell who why I believe in God.
You say that “The Bible is just a book with stories in it.” Well.. so isn’t your History book.
You say “How can you believe in something you do not see?” Well..you believe that Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb right.. but did you see it happen? No.
Yet you read it in your History book didn’t you. You read it so you believe He did it because it has facts in it. The Bible is no different. You didn’t see God create the world. But you read in the Bible He did, there is factual information, documents, and even videos on God’s existantce. Yet, because it’s not taught in all schools, because you don’t go to Church, because you have put your selfish needs before God, and I just don’t see how it’s right. Now I’m not one to SHOVE my religion down other people’s throats, but yet I try to lead to people to the Lord, and help them become closer to Him. And I find that a lot of people say they don’t know God or rather yet they don’t WANT to know God because Christians shove their religion down their throat..while some do this, are you not also being hypocriticall and bashing us for loving our Lord. I say our Lord. Because God rules over EVERYONE. And rather you like it or not Judgement Day will soon come, and as it says in the Bible - New International Version (©1984)
It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’” So while you think that your Faith is weak or non existent, REPENT. Repent and draw closer to the Lord!
New International Version (©1984)
"Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded."
The problem with non believers is ( in my opinion ) they are runners. They do not stop running from the Lord to open up their hearts, God works in HIS time, not ours! I pray that everyone will find the Lord in their hearts, that they will draw near to Him, not just in time of need, but ALL THE TIME. So today ask God to open up your heart, seek God and tell Him you want to be renewed..say this prayer -
" Dear Father ,
I ask you today to stop my running, I’m tired of running Lord, I don’t want to run anymore and no longer. I trust in You Lord and You alone, I pray that you open my heart Father so that I can have you, so that I can have MORE of you. I pray Lord that you will forgive me for I know I am a sinner, I repent my sins to you Lord, and I surrender all that I am to You Father, right here, right now. Your Will is Righteous and True, and from this moment forward I live for You Lord Jesus, and I pray you will walk with me down this narrow road you have provided to come to You, I pray you please help me not to be tempted by the enemy Father, and to avoid all things not worthy to you. Please allow me Jesus to have a heart like Your Heart, to Love as You have Loved and continue to Love us. I pray Father you help me with this journey in my life, I surrender all that I am to You, I love You, and I thank You Lord Jesus for all you have done in my life and for everything you continue to do, for dying on that Cross for me I thank You!, and I thank You God Almighty for creating the Heavens and the Earth, and for blessing me with my life, I pray you will please Keep Me, and Lead me in your Righteous Will Father for it is always True. I ask these things from You Lord, in Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen. “
Stay strong in the Lord! <3! May God Bless and Keep all of you :)! <3!
