Believe In God vs. Believe God
And, boy, have I dusted off that statement all week. Yes, I believe in God. But do I truely believe God? Does believing God require more faith and trust in what God's Word says? Believing everything and clinging to everything in His Word. To really believe God...what does that encompass?
I've been a Christian for many, many years. But, honestly, I've never thought of belief this way before....that there is a difference. As some of you know, 2010 has not been the most wonderful year for me and my family. And people have said, "God will work things out." Yes, I believe in that (there is that word again) but have I really believed God in that statement? Those are things only I can answer through a lot of soul searching and Bible searching.
So what about you? Does the statement "there is a difference in believing in God and believing God" make you sit back and ponder, also? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
