Believe God, Believe His Word, Believe His Promises
Psalm 27:13 (NKJ) “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
For victory in this life and for eternity we need to believe God, believe His Word, and believe His promises. I believe the Bible-it is God’s Word. I believe the promises in the Bible. As we continue to believe God, we continue to see miracles and break through in people’s lives.
I believe we have eternal life through Jesus Christ. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
I believe we are to confess that Jesus is Lord resulting in our salvation. Romans 10:9-10,13 “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; (10) for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. (13) for ‘Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.’”
I believe the blood of Jesus washes our sins away and forgives us when we confess our sins, then He sees us as righteous in His eyes because of 1 John1:7-9 “but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. (8) If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. (9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
I believe Jesus is the Healer and our deliverer. 1 Peter 2:24 “and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.”
I believe we are to do the works that Jesus did. He tells us to in John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.”
I believe Jesus is the baptizer in the Holy Ghost. He will fill us to overflowing with power and love to do the Father’s will. Luke 3:16 “John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Acts 2:4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.”
I believe the Holy Spirit gives us power to be overcomers, and bold witnesses for Christ Jesus. Acts 1:8 “…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
I believe the gifts of the Spirit are for God’s people today and help us in this walk with Jesus. I Corinthians 12:8-11 “For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; (9) to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, (10) and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. (11) But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”
I believe we have authority over the enemy in Jesus Name. Luke 10:19 “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.”
I believe we are to cast out demons, lay hands on the sick for them to be healed, and speak in other tongues as we pray and exalt God. Mark 16:17-18 “These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; (18) they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
I believe the Lord will confirm His Word as we preach and signs will follow. Mark 16:20 “And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.”
I believe as believers in Jesus that angels help us. See Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” Angels have kept mosquitoes off of me for years. Angels have kept my children alive in what most would have thought there was a death in the different automobile wrecks they have had from all outward appearance at the scene of the wrecks.
I believe we can speak to our mountains of challenges, problems, sicknesses and attacks from all types of sources and they will depart just like a rock thrown into the sea. Mark 11:22-23 “And Jesus answered…, “Have faith in God. (23) Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.”
I believe prayer brings blessings. Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.”
I believe the gospel is Good News. It brings salvation, healing, deliverance, peace , victory. It causes us to win in life when we apply it to our life. Matthew 4:23 “Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.” I believe when we hear or read the gospel, we will leave better than when we began to listen-in Jesus Name. Everybody that came to Jesus needing something all left better than when they came to Him. The blind saw, the crippled walked, the greedy became generous, those apart from God came near to him, the thieves quit stealing and began sharing, the demon possessed were set free, the lost were saved, the poor were fed, the storms were calmed, people received their dead back alive. Jesus is an amazing Savior. Believe Him and He will help you.
I believe we are to make disciples that will follow and serve Jesus. Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, (20) teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” I believe we can trust Jesus and He will never forsake us. Hebrews 13:5 “…He himself said, “‘I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.’”
I believe God is a good God. Psalm 118:1 and 29 “Oh, give thanks to the LORD for He is good! For His mercy endures forever”
I believe the Holy Spirit will cause us to live in the fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23) gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
I believe the Holy Spirit will lead us and guide us. Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye.” John 16:13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.”
Look at those who believed God. In Moses time when God brought the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery, twelve spies were sent into the Promised Land. Ten saw the giants there and said they were not able to take the land. Two spies, Joshua and Caleb said, “we are well able to possess the land.” They believed God’s promise more than the circumstance. Those two were the only ones over twenty years of age to go in and possess the land. The rest perished in the desert. (see Numbers 13) If you are in a battle believe God for a good report. When the Roman centurion brought the news about his sick servant to Jesus, he knew Jesus had authority to heal him. So Jesus said to the centurion, “‘Go your way; let it be done to you as you have believed.’ And the servant was healed that very hour.”
I believe that Jesus is the same always. He is still healing broken hearts, broken bodies, broken dreams, broken lives, and broken things. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
I believe there is a day of judgment for the lost who do not receive Jesus as Savior and a reward for those who do receive Jesus. Revelation 22:12-15 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. (13) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (14) Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. (15) Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.”
What Do You Believe? That is what matters for you. When it comes to eternity it matters what you believe and what you do about it that determines your eternal destiny and the type of life you live on earth. Settle it –receive Jesus today. Pray: Dear God I am a sinner. I need a Savior. I accept and receive Jesus right now as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for dying on the cross for me and taking my sins away. I turn from a sinful lifestyle to follow You, Jesus. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Teach me to live a life pleasing to my Father in heaven. Jesus, You are now Lord of my life. In Jesus Name, Amen. Now get water baptized. Read the Bible daily. Pray daily. Meet with other believers often. Grow in Christ. Romans 3:10; 3:23; 5:8-9; 6;23; 10:9-10,13; Acts 1:8; 2:38; I Peter 3:18
I Believe and Tell Others-You can help. Our Cowboy Partners send us on the road with finances and prayers to teach and preach Jesus. You can be a part of every soul we reach for Jesus. The Bible says, “And how shall they know hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” (see Romans 10:14-15). God always blesses those who care about others and those who are involved in kingdom of God business. We would welcome you as a Cowboy Partner if you feel God is leading you to be a part of this ministry. We pray God’s blessings on you.
