What is your belief? The definition of belief from Oxford Dictionary is: an acceptance that something exists or is true, especially one without proof. Trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.
Many times when we have come through a hard “winter” season in our life, doubt will try to dismantle our belief.
As seasons change, it is a good time to renew and refresh your belief. Think about what you are believing and align them with the truth of God’s promises.
What are some of God’s promises to you? Can you name one or two? Do you believe that he is always with you and will never forsake you? (Joshua 1:9) Do you believe that he is faithful to forgive us all of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness? (1 John 1:9) How about belief in Romans 8:38-39, Psalm 121, Jeremiah 29:11 or the many others written so that we would know Him and his character towards us.
Springtime reminds me of what it means to believe. Think about all of the flowers, grass, vines, fruits and leaves, and other greenery of nature. During the winter months where it is cold, you don’t see any. But in Spring, they all come back out. Below the surface, the plants have been working, fulfilling their purpose and preparing for the right timing to burst forth.
Hold onto your belief that God is always at work around you. (John 5:17) Allow God’s Spirit to speak truth into your heart to dispel those doubts that the enemy is trying to convince you are real. Hold on to God’s truth even though you haven’t seen the evidence of it yet. You will be blessed! Remember, just because you don’t see the flowers yet, it doesn’t mean their seeds aren’t growing. Be patient sister, and believe! God is working! Keep growing in the Lord!
