The phrase “I believe” is one of the most powerful phrases in our language, yet how often do we say those two words without really thinking about them? In the modern Christian world those two words get a lot of air time but – do we really believe? Or do we just believe that we believe?
In reality, what we say we believe really doesn’t mean much if our actions don’t follow our words.
Here’s why this is important
Your beliefs govern what you think, say, and do. Your beliefs govern every area of your life. What you believe about any area of your life, your ability, or your future will either limit your life or cause your life to be limitless. Heading into 2014, I think it’s good that we examine what we believe and, more importantly, why we hold those beliefs.
I’d like you to take some time to consider these six statements. This is my declaration for 2014. Actually, it’s been my declaration for some time now but I’m making it an emphasis in my life for 2014. You will find six statements of what I believe, the result of that belief, and a scripture reference as to why I believe that.
Because I Believe …
I invite you to join me in making these declarations of faith in 2014. I encourage you to read these and say them out loud to yourself because as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 4:13…we have the same spirit of faith…we believe therefore we speak!
