I Believe You

I’m putting belief over top of my anxieties until belief is what I see and anxieties fade out of focus.


I’m reminding myself out loud, for me and all of God’s enemies to hear, that I BELIEVE God!


Every place you feel unsteady or need wisdom, ask God. He is happy to help, but He really wants us to believe Him. That’s a large part of recognizing His hand!


James tells us that if we need wisdom we can ask of God, and that is exactly what I need most. It also says that when we ask, God gives it freely without condescending. That means he doesn't hold it over us or take a know it all tone with us. He is happy to help. Check out the paraphrase the Message gives for these verses in James 1:


”If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.“ ‭‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭5‬-‭8‬ ‭MSG‬‬

"People who worry their prayers"...ouch! That's me a lot of days. Since I realize that, I am placing that word believe on top of my prayers. I am going to act like He is going to answer. I am going to act like it's taken care of not that I just made a wish.



”But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.“ James‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬ ‭ESV

I am going to enjoy the peace that comes with believing instead of being tossed and driven in my thoughts.


I believe you will answer me. Tell Him out loud. Reassure your heart and bless God’s by speaking faith.


I believe you for ______________.

I believe you for my children's faith.

I believe you for my future.

I believe you for my purpose.

I believe you for my time.

I believe you for balance.

I believe you for my relationship with my husband.


For all the things that I will never be enough for, He already is.

I want to learn to rest better in that and enjoy peace.

Can someone tell me this again tomorrow?
