Do you believe in God? Or do you believe God?
If you read my testimony from Saturday's post, one thing you know about me is how I believed in God but didn't really believe anything He said. I didn't believe Him. That would be because I didn't know Him.
I have a hunch there are a lot of people out there like that. Even people who know that they know they belong to Christ, but haven't yet gotten to know Him, and therefore haven't gotten to a point of really believing Him.
Then I think there are others who have walked with Him and have gotten to know Him intimately, but have either forgotten how trustworthy He is, or are so blinded by the day-to-day stuff or by the huge circumstance in front of them that they simply can't see His reliability.
I am convinced that most, if not all, believers find ourselves in both of those spiritual places at certain points in our walk. I know I've been there.
And I know I could use a refresher, a study that will help me understand more deeply who my God is and how much He wants for me as His child. That's why I'm going to be joining Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee and Diane at Meyers on the Hood and many others through a 10-week Beth Moore Bible Study called "Believing God."
Linda and Diane are going to be taking turns posting about the lesson each week starting this Thursday, and I'm sure about a million others of us or so will be leaving comments in our little "discussion group." Grab yourself another cup of coffee this afternoon, sign up at the Bible study website, and watch your first video.
See you there!
