When Believers Truly Believe


I Believe…

I am going to be, do, and have all that I imagine and say that I can be, do, and have – just because I can. 

I listened to a song by Donnie McClurkin this morning that said something like, “I am walking in authority, living life the way it’s meant to be, it’s not wrong dear, I belong here, so you might as well get used to me.”  While listening and singing along, I kept saying yep, that’s right, that’s exactly right; this is the attitude God wants us to have and the way He wants us to walk.

When we as believers really believe and begin to walk in our authority, we will begin to experience all types of great things – just because we can!  God’s plan for our life makes Him smile. If we would but believe in it, in Him, and in ourselves, we too would smile.

Get optimistic about your life.

What happened has happened; deal with it, learn from it, and then grow.  Grow into your best You, which can only emerge when you release what has happened.  Your past only has the power you give it, so, don’t take the power you need for your present and give it to your past.

Aren’t you ready to shine bright like a diamond?  Only you can give yourself permission to do so.  Leave your past in the past and begin to enjoy your present, for when you do, you set yourself up for an unbelievable future!  When Believers believe, there are no limits!

There are no limits to what we can do because there are no limits to God our Father!  In scripture, more specifically John 14:12-14, Jesus said, “If you believe, greater works shall you do because He is with the Father.”

The question is, what do you believe?

Do you believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ?  Do you believe God made you a little lower than the angels (Psalm 8:5-9)?

We have power!  We don’t have to lay around in a fetal position with our thumbs in our mouths, nor do we have to sit around complaining – we have the power to change things.  The moment we choose to, we can give our problems an expiration date, just like Jesus did to the fig tree that wasn’t producing fruit (Mark 11:12-14). The power of life and death is in our tongue too (Proverbs 18:21)!

Abundance is a birthright.

We can live abundant lives if we choose to do so. Jesus came and gave us that option in John 10:10.  Life doesn’t have to be as bad as it is at times.  We have been given power and authority, however, we tend not to use it for the purpose it was given.

God is not mad at us, Jesus loves us, and Holy Spirit comforts and reminds us of things we need to know.  It’s us, who at times don’t believe and get ourselves in situations that aren’t good.

We can’t play the blame game anymore!  We have work to do that starts with getting acquainted or reacquainted with the Holy Bible.  We must love it and read it more than we love and watch our favorite shows.  We must be intentional about our lives from this moment on and stop letting things happen to us when they should be happening for us.

So, What’s the Play Call?

Only believe, it’s not too late!  When Believers believe, all things are possible!  When Believers believe, we watch the words that come out of our mouth and speak life concerning our lives.  When Believers believe, prayer, praise, and worship are heard more than anything else – because prayer, praise, and worship change things.

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, it is time to truly believe.  If at this moment you can’t say that you are, I invite you to read Romans 10:9-10.  After giving your life to Christ, pray and ask God to surround you with those who believe, for when Believers believe, great things happen!


What are you believing God for? Let’s join our faith together!
