For several years now my sisters and I have attended weekly Bible studies, in the past 3 or 4 years those studies were by Beth Moore. I am so grateful to have been able to study God’s word with the help of His servant Beth. She has a sweet southern accent, forgein to us Canadians eh? She also has a gift to write, to teach, and the gift of gab. If you have never “met” Beth, I encourage you to get involved in a Bible study led by her. I’m sure you will enjoy it and learn a great deal about God and yourself.
Here is a word from Beth:
“God taught me a way to pledge my faith to Him every single day through five statements. I taught these in the Bible study Believing God, but I want to share them in this book as well (Voices of the Faithful) because they’ve meant so much to me, I believe that these five statements encompass virtually everything God calls us to believe in His Word:
- God is who He says He is.
- God can do what He says He can do.
- I am who God says I am.
- I can do all things through Christ.
- God’s Word is alive and active in me.
I always conclude the five statements by making a verbal commitment “I’m believing God.”
I want to challenge you to give these statements a try. Say them every single day. I can be completely overwhelmed by a challenge, and as I spit these statements out of my mouth, I can feel faith rising up in me. I have never seen God work as blatantly as I have since He challenged me to believe Him instead of just believing in Him. I’ve quit being so safe and sterile about what I ask. The primary question that precedes my request is simply this: Is it biblical? Nothing has had a greater impact on my approach to God and to daily living than raising both my sword of the Spirit (Scripture) and my shield of faith (belief).
God is still working in our generation. Faith is how we join Him.
