Yes we can, we must believe!

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 1:6, NIV)

Learning to walk in God’s plan that he has designed for you and I best defined as being in process. The first step is to get an understanding, a clear picture of how God sees you and me. The next step is to trust Him—to believe in faith that combining our natural abilities with God‘s super will cause us to live a supernatural life. Boldly, I can say it will happen because it has happened in my life. My wife Terri has some amazing events in her life that attest to this as well. There were times on our journey things were dark but we believed we were in process. We trusted God had an order for us to walk in. We trusted He was capable of doing what He promised. And then finally, you take a step of faith and live out what God has promised no matter what your circumstances or people around you have to say.
“Yes we can, WE must believe” is a motto I chose to live by. Every promise from God’s Word I’ve ever chosen to receive from God has followed this same pattern. We see in scripture that even the great men and women of the Bible walked through this process. They had to overcome doubts, they struggled on their journey, but they held fast to what God said knowing that He is faithful to complete what He started in us!  There is power in understanding that God does His part and expects us to do ours—so it becomes “we”.

Today, if you are having a hard time believing what God has promised will come to pass, understand that you are in a process. Don’t empower doubt with your words. Instead, keep declaring that He who promised is faithful! Keep the vision in front of you knowing that it is for an appointed time. Yes it won’t be long until you are living the life God has prepared for you!
