Lord, I Believe You Will

Many years ago, a mentor told me to pray “Lord, I believe you will..” Another Christian friend said to write my prayers in stone because I have so much faith. I write “Lord, I believe you will” on a stone as an act of faith. I have also taught and demonstrated this to others when teaching.

Habakkuk 2:

The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith

And the Lord answered me:

“Write the vision;
    make it plain on tablets,
    so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
    it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
    it will surely come; it will not delay.

God does not always answer my prayers in the way I think He will, or in the manner I think I need, but He always answers in abundance of what I think or imagine.

During the tornado, my hands were outstretched over the kids and I prayed: Lord I believe you will protect us no matter what.

We felt the Holy Spirit under that stairwell like never before. The house splintered and crumbled on us, yet we walked out within minutes.

I had a journal once that I wrote over 50 prayers in. I put it away and went back to it about 6 months later. I read the prayers and realized all of them had been answered in abundance of what I asked or imagined.

Read the words of Rev. Adrian Rogers below as he speaks about believing God will…

Real Faith: What It Is—What It’s Not

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
It’s faith that enables us to live the Christian life. In order to know what faith is, let me tell you what faith is not.

* Faith is not a hunch.
* Faith is not positive thinking.
* Faith is not responding to emotions, feelings, or icicles up and down your spine or miracles, signs and wonders.
* Faith is not believing that God can do something.

Faith is knowing that God will. Faith is taking God at His word. Real faith dies to doubt. It is deaf to discouragement. It is blind to impossibilities. Now this is the kind of faith we need.

ACTION POINT:
What kind of faith do you have? Do you have the faith that is small as a mustard seed, but can move a mountain? Ask God for it today.
