Well worth the read!
If we reallybelievedthat God meant what He said – what should we be like! Dare I really let God be to me all that He says He will be? —Oswald Chambers
There is a strong connection between the wordsbelieveand faith. They both come from the same root word in the Hebrew.
Faith (pistis) is a noun, something you have:
- a firm persuasion
- certain conviction
- Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. —Hebrews 11:1
Believe (pistueo) is a verb, something you do, based upon that faith:
- to trust in and fully rely upon
- to accept as genuine and true
- to be firmly convinced about
- For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believedand I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have…

A man told of a dream which had a great impact on his life. He dreamed that a man of wondrous beauty and noble bearing approached him. He had never seen such a man and was so impressed that with envy and admiration he asked who the stranger was.
The answer came very clearly:
This is the man God intended YOU to be,
but you refused
and instead, you handled your own life.

A Mother’s Heart
A special bond is formed,
as her child grows inside.
Nourishing her unborn…
a process only God could provide.
And her child grows,
tucked safely under her heart.
Till the day her baby’s born,
and given a fresh new start.
But that special bond was formed,
with each precious heartbeat…
A mother’s love lasts forever…
a bond never to be defeated.

What an ‘Able’ God we serve!
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.
The word “Able” is translated from the word dunatos (in turn from dunamai) which refers to the power one has by virtue of inherent ability and resources. “Able” describes that which has sufficient or necessary power, means, skill, or resources to accomplish an objective.
I am completely persuaded that God is Able
God is able to create something out of nothing
God is able from these stones to raise up children.. Matthew 3:9
God is able to make all grace abound to you
God is able to make all grace abound to you… having all-sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
God is able to deliver
God whom we serve is able to deliver…

A practical application of 1Corinthians 13
A Paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13
Author Unknown and altered by J. Yardy
Though in the glamour of the public eye I sway the emotions of many by my oratory, or my silver singing, or by my skillful playing, or by my winning personality, and then go home and gripe because things don’t go m way, I am become a sounding brass or a tingling cymbal. And though I am able to impress others with my vast knowledge of the deep things of the Word of God in Bible Studies and prayer groups, and though I am able to accomplish mighty things through faith so that I become famous in the church as a remover of mountains, and have not love that reads the deep longings of the hearts around the family circle, and removes the barriers that grow up in shy and tender hearts, I am nothing at all…

It reminds me of when I was a fool for too many years; listening to my peers, so much so that I walked away from a good friend, because of what others were saying. They were telling me, that my friend was not the type of person I should be seen with. I could kick myself, and them too! But thanks be to God, He has transformed my mind; I’m letting this mind be in me which was also in Jesus Christ!
Well written…Well said!
