I read this today in a devotion by Neil Anderson and thought it was worth sharing:
Furthermore, it is important to know that God is under no obligation to us. There is no way you can cleverly word a prayer so that God must act on your behalf. If God declares something to be true, you simply believe Him and live according to what is true. If God didn’t say it, no amount of faith in the world will make it so. Believing doesn’t make God’s Word true; His Word is true, therefore I believe it.
So many times we say we believe God, but do we really? I think my favorite verse in Scripture is Jeremiah 32:27 (NIV84) which says,
“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
I really believe Him when He says this! Do you?
