If you’re reading this, then there’s a really good chance you’re a Christian. Now I’m not a numbers person (hence why I’m a blogger), so I can’t give statistics. However, there are a lot of people–some even calling themselves Christians–who say they believe in God, but leave Him in the backgrounds of their lives. There’s no judgment here as this used to be me (and sometimes still is unfortunately).
Here’s what I don’t understand. How can someone truly believe in God and not want more of Him? How can you believe in an all-powerful being who created the heavens, galaxies, and Earth and all of its inhabitants, and not want more?
Believe it, God is real. Just look around at nature, and the evidence is clear. The thing is, we live in a culture that limits God. We live in a society that doesn’t experience an overflow of healings and miracles because we don’t have faith.
Even though God is all-powerful and can do all things, we hinder Him by our lack of faith and inattention.
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23 NKJV).
It’s not that God has turned His back on us, but we’ve actually turned our backs on Him.
During my college career, I’ve had the honor of studying various religions and belief systems, learning amazing things from each of them. But there’s something different about Jesus that none of these other faiths have.
With Jesus, you can truly experience God. You can be in His presence and have a relationship with Him. The reason I’m writing this? Because I know God, and I believe He put these thoughts on my heart. This has burdened my soul long enough to write about it.
With Jesus, anything is possible. Maybe we won’t get everything we want or at the exact time we want it, but God is good. He wants to be with us. He loves us. He’s constantly in pursuit of us.
God’s still here. He’s still moving and working miracles if only we would take the time to stop and worship Him–to invite Jesus into our lives.
So here’s your chance. Invite God everywhere. Not just to church, the dinner table, or a bedside prayer.
Invite His presence into the minute and mundane, as well as the extraordinary.
Invite God to your work or school. Invite God to your daily commute.
Invite God to your relationships and finances.
Invite God to your chores and burdens–into your joys and sorrows.
Invite God to the miraculous, where He can be felt like wildfire.
Don’t limit God, and don’t limit yourself.
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26 NKJV).
If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus and want to know more, read this. God bless you!
