"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:7-9
God has really been impressing upon me this week that out of my heart...those things that I truly believe...comes what I need to live an effective life for Christ. If I believe in my heart, soul, mind and strength that God is God and in control of all things, then my life will reflect that in my thoughts, words, and actions. If I truly believe prayer changes things, then I will pray more. If I truly believe that God has called me to do something, then I will get it done to the best of my ability. If I believe power lies in Him, then I will run to him to gain my strength.
Nothing that I believe or don't believe will change who God is. He is who He says He is. What will change is how I think and act...how I love and forgive...how I step out of my comfort zone into the unknown. God has done His part and continues to do His part faithfully. It's time to believe He is Lord with my whole heart, so that my life reflects more of His love, faithfulness and power.
Those 18 inches between my head and my heart make all the difference...
