Believe God

“ Without faith, it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6

Believing in God is not the same as believing Him. Believing in Him is acknowledging His existence. He wants more from you than that, my friend. God wants you to believe what He says and show it.

Believe Him when He says you are forgiven through Jesus Christ. Show it by refusing to look down on yourself because of your past.

Believe God when He says He will provide for you. Show you believe by doing your part knowing He will do His. Show it by refusing to be jealous of anyone else. You have all you need in Him which frees you to rejoice at how He blesses others. Show it by being generous when you can.

Believe God when He says He is in control. Show you believe by waiting for His timing. Command your heart to be still when tempted to manipulate things to get your way. You don’t really want it if you have to steal it and miss God’s best, my friend.

Believing God makes you behave in ways that make no sense to unbelievers. That’s ok. You are in good company with Noah, Joshua, and Mary, the mother of Jesus. The world has nothing on the life of faith. Know this! Believe this! Believe God!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
