Why is it so hard for some people to believe in God’s promises? Below is a list of reasons why some people don’t believe. Those things might sound foolish to the ones who believe in God and his promises. But, you will be surprise that some people don’t know God like you do. Some people rather believe a lie instead of believing in God’s promises. We as believer should know that God is infinite. We as believer should know that God has infinite resources. Yet nonbelievers sincerely don’t know that.
- They don’t know God.
- They don’t know God’s attribute.
- They walk by sight and not by faith.
- They don’t believe that God still operate in human affairs.
- They believe God can’t help them.
- They believe but their doubts always takeover.
Lord, if my faith suffers from anyone of those reasons above
Fix me Lord
Lord, if I don’t believe in you from anyone of those reasons above
Help me Lord
Lord help my unbelief
So I will believe in you
So I will believe in your promises
Lord take away any doubt out of my mind and heart
So I can walk by faith
In Jesus Name I Pray

Ron believed in God. He served him with reverence and zeal. He based his belief on what he thought was right. Ron mixed a little of every religion together. He thought he would only use what is good in each religion. It seemed well with his soul. There are so many good people who have a zeal for God. They think that they are bringing happiness to God like Paul when he was called Saul. You must ask God this question. Is my service and worship to you a delight or is it a figment of my imagination?
Romans 10 1-3(KJV)
10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
God let me have a zeal for you God according to your righteousness
God don’t let be puffed up with my own righteousness
God let my knowledge be base off of your knowledge
So I want be ignorant of your righteousness God
God let me always submit myself to your righteousness God
I want to worship you with a pure heart
God purify my worship of you
God purify my day to day living so I can live for you
God purify my heart
God purify my thoughts
In Jesus Name I Pray

Sometimes, it might feel as if you are the only one with your best interest at heart. If you are feeling like this right now, there is hope. God had your best interest at heart since he first thought to create you. God has been rerouting his Holy Angels to get your attention. You are not alone. You never were alone. You have purpose. You are loved. You are special. You are unique. You are great. You just have to realize how great you are in God. God has never left you. In fact, God has been waiting on you to acknowledge him by repenting and accepting his free salvation. God is waiting with open arms to comfort you. Yes you, God really has your best interest at heart.
Lord, help me to see the truth
Lord, help me to realize the truth
Lord, help me to get out of my feelings
So I can realize how you got my best interest at heart
In Jesus Name
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

It is awesome to know that we serve a God who can rebuke the wind. Jesus said, “Peace! Be still!” and then the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Surely, Jesus can calm the winds that blow in your life today. I am talking about those troubles that seem to keep on forcing their way into your life like a perfect storm. Jesus can speak those same words into your life “Peace! Be still!” and those winds must cease immediately. You too can enjoy a great calm in your own life! Are you experiencing any straight line winds right now? I am not talking about those winds that are meant for us to grow. There are some winds that blow the leaves and help some trees carry their seeds. There are other winds that disturb your sanity. You could have been rooted in the thoughts of having a perfect life until an unforeseen storm comes your way. That storm may only rage for what may seem like 10 minutes, but it could cause major damage to your thoughts of having a perfect life. It is amazing on how something so strong like a fully grown tree can be uprooted by the wind. A straight line wind could uproot trees that were planted in the ground for years. So if you are a mature Christian, then you might feel the effect of such winds from time to time. You must always remember that Jesus can speak to any storm in your life and it must obey his voice.
And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Lord, I ask you to calm the winds in my life
Lord, let all of my unnecessary issues cease
Lord I pray that Peace be Still
So I can enjoy your peace that surpasses all understanding
I know my storms and straight line winds must obey your voice
I ask those things in your name Jesus

You will make it. You will get through it. You will reach your destiny. Smile and praise God. You are walking under the favor of the Lord. Sometimes, it might not seem like it at times. We must know it within our heart. We must fully trust in God because God is always looking out for us. Every good thing works together for those who love the Lord. Despite of how you are feeling right now. Despite of what you are going through right now. If it is negativity or an attack from the enemy etc.., then you must reach up to Jesus. Trust God! Let Jesus pull you up and out of your situation. Despite life woes at times, you are highly favored. Jesus can and will meet you at your need.
Philippians 1:6 (NIV)
6 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.
Lord if I am having trouble seeing that I am highly favored by you. Lord, help me see that. Lord as I go through this process, please fill me up with your joy. I ask to be made stronger and better in you Jesus Christ. I extend my hands to you because Jesus, I need you all the time.

The storm is over. You have made it through the eye of the storm. What you are experiencing now is the residue of it. Praise God! Can you see the rainbow? God’s promises are for real and they are yours. Praise God! It doesn’t look like it, but the sun will shine soon. The only thing you will be enjoying is the showers of blessings from the Lord. Could you believe it that your blessings are right here? I know that it seems like it has been forever. Reaffirm it! God shall bring to pass those things that he has promised me. I thank you Jesus that my storm is over. I praise you Lord for the beginning of blessings showering down upon me. Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!!
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You have been my refuge, a tower of strength against the enemy. I would like to be a guest in your tent forever and to take refuge under the protection of your wings. Selah O God, you have heard my vows. You have given me the inheritance that belongs to those who fear your name.
Will you give up or will you continue to fight? It’s not over, so don’t throw in the towel. It may seem like you are defeated, but you are not. There is plenty of fight left in you. You have to continue the fight of faith. Jesus will help you land the punch that will knock out your opponent. He will defeat the enemy on your behalf. All you have to do is keep on standing. You might get knocked down a couple of times. Stand up in Jesus‘s name. Hold up your guards with the word of God when the enemies throw their rapid jabs. You can take it and you can stand. Jesus is with you, so call on him right now. He will deliver you!
1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV)
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses
