“Do you believe God or merely believe in Him?” There is a difference. Beth Moore, in her book Believing God, explains and leads us to the important answer to this question. You can close your eyes and practically “see” her face and body animation.
Isaiah 43:10 prompted Moore to write this thought-provoking book as Hebrews 11 guided her through it.
You will recognize all the diverse areas of your life in these pages as if Moore is visiting with you right in your own living room as your best friend. It’s sometimes difficult to hear the truth from a friend, but this book points out that if we are wise, or want to be more so, then this personal “Bible study” will be a blessing.
We possess no small power in our tongues. Most of us can testify that the human tongue owns the power to kill all sorts of things. Relationships, lifelong dreams, and self-confidence are only a few of the common fatalities. Thankfully, perhaps as many of us have also experienced life-giving words of encouragement, instruction, and exhortation.
God’s words are omnipotent. Our words are potent.
Moore suggests in her book taking on a new lifestyle commitment towards faith in God. So much of our Christian life is like this; developing appropriate goals to become more like God Himself. This is a commendable suggestion, but she warns:
A big difference exists between trying to manipulate God to give us what we want and cooperating with God so He can give us what He wants. The latter is our goal.
Wise words, indeed.
