Believing…for Real


Heavenly Father, you are for real. Your Word is proof. It is all the proof I need. It is not made up, it is not pretend, or a lie. Jesus was real. People were eyewitnesses and recorded their testimony. They were put to death because of their testimony. Sin is real. Heaven and hell are real. Satan is real. Spiritual warfare is real. Even though I can’t see the wind or even my own heart, these things are real.

What do I believe, Lord? Truly believe? Anything? Anything other than my own personal experience, thoughts, and feelings?

I confess, Lord, that I live for self. When my mind is allowed to wander, it defaults to thoughts about what I want, what I have to do, my perspective or circumstances. Please make the word of Christ dwell in me richly. Please rescue me from myself! The gospel, the good news, is real, and all I have to do is simply believe it by faith for real.

Lord Jesus, I need you. I am so weak, weaker than anyone I know. Where else will I go, Lord? You alone have the words of eternal life. I confess I don’t want to be out of control. I want to control my life and make my own decisions, go when I want, where I want. Please help me! I do believe, help my unbelief! Thank you Jesus, for dying for my sin for real. In your name, Amen.
