Blessed to Believe

Happy Monday, ladies! It’s a new day. A new week. And His mercies are new to us today. Can I get an amen?

As I was driving to work this morning each of you were at the forefront of my mind. For one, I knew I’d be greeted by a couple thousand comments to approve this morning with much joy, thank you, SSMT (I logged on Saturday for a bit, but never touched my computer yesterday. Sometimes you just need a break, you know?)  And also, as I was remembering that I had yet to post my verse, I thought maybe it might encourage some of you.

I participated in the very first SSMT a couple years ago, but then didn’t join in two years ago. Little did I know I’d be coming on staff at LPM in 2011 or I might have jumped on the bandwagon that year as well, but alas, they still let me attend the celebration. Grin. Anyway, I think the reason I’m really excited to be jumping in with both feet this time is because I’m really fighting for some sanity and faith here. And I’ve found that when I’m really trying to find my faith is when the enemy really likes to attack it as best as he knows how. I’m sure no one can relate.

You know how when you’re younger and your parents tell you something and you choose not to listen because you’ve got this thing called life figured out and what do they know? Well, that’s kind of how I feel right now. I’ve been told, have witnessed and know that to stay with it, I’ve got to saturate my mind with Truth. With God’s Word. I have to hide His Word in my heart and mind. I’m hindering nothing but my own faith by choosing not to do that. So this time around I know what I’m fighting for. And I’m serious about it. The effects that His Word has on my heart and mind are life-giving and freeing, not vice versa.

Sorry for the tangent, but in case you were curious, we’re all for scripture memory around here, in case that wasn’t made obvious already. Laughing.

Truth be told, being involved in a lot of active ministries means I tend to fall more on the busy side than the bored side, and quite frankly, I love it. Who likes to be bored? However, a balance is indeed needed and I’ve learned to create some margin or else my faith will go to the dumps because I spend more time doing than just being, praying and cultivating. I know that when I start to get really irritable and annoyed with people is when I need to put myself in time out. In fact, this weekend I did just that and it was water to my soul. It was very good. But boy did I have to fight.

Maybe it’s because I just started Believing God, or maybe it’s because the Lord is doing a new thing, or maybe, just maybe, the Lord is slowly revealing more of Himself to me, but I want to believe God. I need to believe God. That He is for me. That He is good. That He is God.

“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Luke 1:45

Blessed is she who has believed. I don’t know about you, but I want that to be said about me. About my faith. That I believed God and took Him at His word. Maybe this word is just for me today, and if so, I’ll claim it.

It’s Monday.

What do you desperately need to believe God for today?

Dare we take Him at His Word and believe Him this week? Believe that what He has said to us will be accomplished? Fulfilled?

I even dare you to share it with us today.

Because, Sister. He can. He is able. You can believe Him. And so can I.

After all, “The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24

    Jane says:

    I need to believe that He will guard and uplift my son. He is trying very hard to get into medical school and found out on Friday that he is on a “wait list”, which means he may not find out until med school starts in August whether he is in or not. He must go ahead and apply for next year just in case. He is disappointed and despondent. I do not want Satan to get in his face and tear apart his confidence. I pray that God will get in his face and remind him of the promise in Jeremiah! I know He has great plans for him – plans to prosper and not to harm!

      Cheryl says:

      Jane, hold on to hope!! I am married to someone who is on the faculty of a medical school and know that there are “wait listed” persons who do get into medical school at the “11th hour” in August, the day that school starts. I have heard stories of “wait-listers” who pack their bags, come to town and get admitted the first day of school because someone has not shown up to claim his/her space. Usually this is because they have been accepted to more than one school, but do not relinquish their spot in the second or third choice place. So wait and take heart. This chapter of your son’s story may not yet be finished. I love this verse and it was one of my “memory texts” for SSMT in 2011.
      Psalms 27:13-14 (NIV): “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

      Diana says:

      Dear Jane, I just had to write and let you know I am praying for you and your son. I have been in your shoes and our youngest son has been in your son’s shoes. It is so hearbreaking for everyone. Keep trusting God. We cried, prayed, then prayed some more for God to reveal a back up plan in case med school was not God’s plan at that time. Our son was accepted into a great Masters program and was preparing to go there when the week of his college graduation he received his letter of acceptance into med school. I pray your son gets his letter way before August too. Do not lose heart.

      Ellen Kittredge says:

      Hi Jane, my son is in his first year of residency. It was a long process for him to get started in medical school, but well worth the wait of over a year before being accepted. All that waiting doesn’t mean he’s not a terrific candidate. I just read a reminder in “Jesus Calling” this morning, “accept yourself &your circumstances just as they are, remembering I (Jesus) am sovereign over everything.” I often have to remind myself, as does my son & his family, that trusting God includes His timing, which is often not ours. Pray your son will have peace in Jeremiah 29:11′ as you said.
      Blessings, dear sister.

    I have been given a ministry opportunity, but it will cost a good amount of money to participate in it. I believ Him that He has called me to it. I need to believe now that He will provide the funds. The Scriptures that you were shared were AMAZING! Thank you!

      Nicole Coleman says:

      Amen, Renee. I, too, am in the same boat. An opportunity presented itself today and I have to give a yes/no by the end of the week. I have a peace about it, but then the “worldly view” comes in of, “can I take off work that long?”, “how can I afford it?”. I’m having to cling to God and know that if He is calling me, the rest will be taken care of. I will pray for you as I pray for myself in seeking God’s direction!

      • Renee Law says:

        Nicole, I will pray for you as well! Thank you for the reminders that if God has called me to do it He provide for the unknown area!

    Michelle Baylerian says:

    Believing God to direct us to a church that would preach God’s Word with power & passion. That worship would be outrageous. To not care what others think about our church home choice. Secondly that I would believe a dream He has placed in my heart that’s church related. To not sit still but keep doing the next right thing-MOVE FORWARD!!

      Okay, Lord that is also what I’m believing for…thanks.

    Kristin K says:

    I need to believe that He has a future for me that is better than my past. I come from a mess! Dis functional would almost be a compliment to my family! Divorce, abuse, drug addiction and so on and so on. I have always hoped that God had a plan for my life that included a godly loving husband, a family of my own, and divine purpose! But lately it’s been hard to believe that it’s going to happen. Everyday feels like a battle! Today I need a break! I need to be able to rest in Him and to know that Hes got my back!

      Hannah says:

      Hi Kristin, I just prayed for you. These verses came to mind:

      The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
      you hold my lot.
      The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
      Psalm 16:4-9

      The Lord is your portion, you purpose, your husband, and he’s totally got your back! Talk to him all throughout the day, every day, and think about him and every good thing he has done for you, and you will feel better whether the battle continues to rage or not. You are Sooo valuable to the Lord, Kristin.

    “I’m really fighting for some sanity and faith here.”

    I feel like that now too, Lindsee. I choose to Believe that God knows my heart’s purest desires even better than I do. Great post today : ). Let His Word dwell in you!

    Karen Shivar says:

    Thanks Lindsee! I too needed to post my memory verse, but really had not decided on the one for this time. Your verse just jumped off the page at me. It just spoke to me regarding my ability to continually hold onto God’s promises with some areas of my life. Thanks again and God bless!

    T. says:

    Oh how I needed that word. I know what you mean about believing God at His Word. The house we are leasing has been put on the market with less than 1 week notice from our landlord. I felt so angry, and frustrated until I went to church yesterday. As I sang during praise and worship I realized that this is only a temporary situation that God is in control of. I want to hear Him say “well done.” So I am determined to saturate myself in the scriptures and in praising and worshiping Him for all that He’s done.

    Alyssa- Sealy, TX says:

    I am believing God for healing in my marriage. I know He wants to accomplish much with my husband and me, but we are struggling. I feel my husband’s heart is hard, and he is very closed. I don’t really know what to do and part of me just wants to give up. I know that I can’t do that, but it’s how I feel today anyway. I know that His grace is sufficient for me, based on MY SSMT verse for the start of this month (God is so funny), and that He has a plan for us, but will my husband submit his will to God’s?????? I pray that God soften his heart. Sisters, please pray with me. :'(

      Jaclyn says:

      Alyssa – I will be praying for you. I am in the same situation. My marriage is in shambles and I am trusting God at His word that he will redeem it. I’ve been holding onto God, praying, and trusting that He has a purpose in all of this. One thing I can share with you is that as long as I have my eyes focused on Christ, I can make it through and have the peace that surpasses all understanding, but as soon as I shift my focus and start dwelling on how bad my marriage is, it gets worse. Keep your eyes focused on Christ and He will walk with you through this.

    Lisa Curtis says:

    Oh, how this spoke to me this morning. I have started this week off in a dead sprint and am already worn out. Sad to feel that way before noon on Monday. I am leading a Bible Study with more than a handful of women for the first time in my life. One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer. It is powerful and the evil one is fighting hard to prove that I cannot ever be “one in a million” much less a bible study leader. My faith has been tested in the past but this season of my life is by far the most difficult spiritually. Thank you for a good word today. I may just copy your scriptures for future memorization.

      Praying right now for you, Lisa. That the enemy would SHUT HIS MOUTH! You are called and equipped in Jesus, Sister. Walk in it!

    Ellen Kittredge says:

    Wow! Lindsee, thank you for sharing your heart, being vulnerable. God continues His work. I am so grateful He never gives up on His dear children. Even at 65+ years He has been faithful, even when I have wavered by just not staying as close to Him as I need to, or beating myself up, as they say, because I’m not as good at walking with Him, by His Spirit as I’d like to be.
    So, today is another new day and I am rejoicing in my Lord, the God of my salvation, because he has made my feet like the mountain goat’s and He alone causes and enables me to tread on my places of difficulty and the sins that so easily entangle me. For me they are things like perfectionism & procrastination. I believe my mindset has been, if you can’t do it perfectly, wait till you can. How foolish can one be in the light of the knowledge that there is only One who can do anything perfectly.
    All that to say, in my time with The LORD today, He has nurtured and encouraged me. I have hope b/c He makes all things new, including me at this stage of life. Renewed, revived and being restored day by day.

    • 19.1
      Lindsee says:

      Amen, Ellen! And girl, I HEAR you on the perfection word. I can relate. In fact, you’ll laugh at the fact that I have a post in the works just about perfection and pride. It’s ugly! But He makes us new. Blessings!

    I need to believe that my 39 yr old son will stand on his own 2 feet & stop being led around by a manipulative wife who left him & teenage sons. He will give his life back to Christ, the God of his childhood, serve Him & take direction from the Lord. I need a time out. I’m frustrated to my wits end after 20+ yrs of destructive behavior. I need a positive word.

    Sarah C says:

    Thanks for asking, Lindsee! :)

    My husband and I felt called to the mission field through Engineering Ministries International a year ago. As a result, we are in the process of selling our house, raising support, and leaving behind the only area I’ve ever known as home to move our family (including a 5 year old, 3 year old and 19 month old…away from grandparents) across the country. God promised me a year ago that I COULD stay here, and it would be good, BUT that His BEST for me is if we GO.

    So, I am fighting serious emotions as we are 85% funded with support and have a contract on our house. Everything inside of me is wanting to go hide under a rock and stay close to “home” and family, but am trying hard to cling to God’s calling and promises (but I could probably use a “time out,” too! :)

    Dear Lindsee,
    Thank you for being real and so encouraging. Today I need to believe God that He will finish the healing He has started in my heart. That God will be my refuge and sheild as again this last Thursday I found myself in the path of someone I’m afraid of. I am believing God that no weapon formed against me will prosper. This last weekend I went to my Pastor for prayer for this situation and as He prayed I felt the presence of Jesus stronger and more powerful than I’ve ever felt it. I put my trust in Him.

    Dena S. says:

    Thank you, Lindsee! You’re always such a blessing. Today, I need to believe God for some belief. I don’t even know if that makes sense. Here in Indianapolis, we’re in the middle of a long, dreary winter. The sun is rarely out, and my entire little family has been sick with the stomach flu and pneumonia…it’s so easy to fall in with the gray clouds and find myself in a pit of despondency. But I know I am so blessed! How can I complain when I know darn well that it could be so much worse? And so I pray for relief, hope, gladness of heart, and that the words of James will penetrate my heart so that I’ll be burdened with the harsh reality of so many around me instead of being depressed over “inconveniences”. I am believing God for belief that he can deliver me from “self”, and live his life that is in me, desire my weary surroundings.

    Debbie Scherrer says:

    Wow, Your words brought tears and squeezed my heart. I had to put myself in time-out twice today. I’m thankful that God is so faithful, and enabled me to do the right thing today even though it is not what I wanted to do….at first! Took my pride down a few notches.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Keri Lee Robbins says:

    I am not ready to say what I am believing God for today, He just told me on Saturday…I haven’t told anyone, even my husband. I know God needs to do that first. However, I am ready to say, “I believe Father that You WILL fulfill what You have promised me. I trust You with my heart and I know in the depths of my soul that You would not open this place in my heart only to leave it empty.” “Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Luke 1:45 Thank you Lindsee for the encouragement today to believe that God is good and He is for me! :)

    Tammy says:

    I need a time out to just be with God and lay my concerns over to him, especially over one of my sons who is struggling with school and has always been a good student who does his homework. His teacher doesn’t want to help him and so he is really frustrated. As a mama who is also a teacher, I know about students but I am not good at geometry. Did I not say I need a time out to let God handle the situaltion and give me wisdom as a mama who wants to help her son.

    Lindsee this was great post.

    For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37

    Currently waiting for a word that I have received from God to come to fruition and because it seems “impossible” in a way, I have been avoiding going “there” in my prayers and today Lindsee you have challenged me to “Dare we take Him at His Word and believe Him this week? Believe that what He has said to us will be accomplished? Fulfilled?”. This week starting today I will take that promise off the shelf, dust it and believe again…

    May God manifest Himself to you in ways that you could never have dreamed or imagined!

    christina says:

    Thank you for this, Lindsee. I need to believe God’s goodness, love, and power as one of my nearest and dearest has abandoned the faith he once held dear and which we once shared. I find myself reexamining my own beliefs in the wake of his decision, and it is a daily fight to let this push me closer to God and not to withdraw either from God or my loved one.

    It’s been 8 yrs since I worked through Believing God, but the 5 statements still help me refocus frequently.

    Cindy D.R. says:

    Lindsee, Thanks for being authentic, it can be a difficult for all of us. God knows our every weakness. I’ve recently learned an important lesson about being weak so HE can be strong. Before learning this lesson I faught God daily; I can do it myself! Today I know in a new clearer way, through this lesson that it’s only in my weakness that His strength and glory can shine. His is the only glory that should shine.

    Selena says:

    I need to believe that He will continue the good work to completion in me and that I can allow it. i do not know why but I am scared. I have no words to express what is going on between God and I. He is cutting out what is not of Him in my heart. Its painful.

    Amy says:

    This week I am believing God will heal me of my constant stress to please everyone. I know I shouldn’t care what others think of me, but the Lord knows that I do care…a lot! From not wanting to “ruffle any feathers” to attempting to keep the “innocent” look on my face, I realize that even “dumb” myself down so that I will have a more pleasing vibe. Of course, I am mostly talking about my job, but even in life.

    I am praying that God will help see me through this by His Word, His guidance, and my obedience. I know it can be done!

    I feel like I have so much going on that I’m not even sure what to pray or believe God for.

    I have some burdens of my own and I just got back from taking my best friend to his first oncologist appt for pancreating cancer.

    When we got the diagnosis last week, we were both so sad and he was so scared, but now that there is a tentative treatment direction, my best friend seems to be feeling a little better about it.

    What just hit me was – what if he gets through this cancer and never comes to know Jesus?

    That scares me. What good is saving a body if you don’t save the soul?

      Lindsee says:

      Michele, there it is! We’re going to pray for and believe God for his salvation. He is able! And your friend is blessed to have YOU walking through this with Him. You are a treasure.

      • Michele says:

        Thank you Lindsee. Yes, I should trust that God is calling my friend and will save him. He did come to church with me last weekend. It just made me nervous when he said today that he did not want anyone to pray over him.

    My husband and I have just celebrated our 15 year anniversary and we have 4 kids. But this past year we endured a 3 month separation and an affair. Our marriage is a miracle and I, by God’s grace, held on to the belief, that he could resurrect a dead marriage and he did! (was there ever any doubt?!) But this is the hard part. The healing. I asked my grandma this weekend, who has been married 65 years, is it really worth it, and she assured me it is. I am believing God today, for healing, wholeness, deliverance from fears and insecurities, and financial blessings. God is Good!

      Hannah says:

      I can tell you Miss Heather, as a (grown, married) child of divorced parents, that going through all this pain to heal your marriage will be worth it to your kids! I am proud of you, and really admire you, and I know the Lord is so honored by your efforts to maintain and repair you marriage.

      Keep your hopes high, he is able to make your marriage more amazing than you can imagine right now!!

      • Heather M says:

        Hannah-
        Thank you for your encouragement. My commitment from the first day of our separation was to walk this out honorably before God and my children, and I know that this is the life God has given to me, and I will fight for it in his strength.

        Abundant Blessings to you-
        Heather

    I am a recent college grad (as of December) and I am looking for a job as an elementary music teacher. During the time of my student teaching … God has taught a lot of things… I am single for a purpose… I have a gift to play piano and play it well… and I am a jewel in His eyes.

    Today… I am claiming victory over my part time piano studio (I just started working with a Christian fine arts academy). I claim victory over the lie that I will not do a decent job teaching voice and piano. God has given me a music ability (which no one a similar ability quite like mine in my family) and he has given me a unique ability to relate and teach concepts to students of all ages.

    I claim a victory over this day… and I rejoice in the day the Lord has made :)

    Lindsee girl, you have a Gift!

    I tried to memorize last year, and the older ones soon popped out and so I only seemed to ever keep 3 – so that was not the path for me. So GOD said do you believe I can help you keep the Word in your heart and mind? I had to really think on that… nevertheless, He has been faithful to work some Scripture into my mind and heart and lo and behold I have memorized some – and kept them without popping out!

    It is indeed cool to really self challenge – ‘do I BELIEVE God, not just in but truly what He says He will do’ – thank you Ms. Beth for that study and challenge – life changing!

    Love to see one of my verses is yours too! (Luke 1:45) How amazing is our GOD to use this passage for different folks, and different needs – GOD IS GOOD!!!

    Believing GOD – the best life activity Ever!!!

    Love to you and the gang!:)

    I am trying to believe God will be our provider as He promised. “God is who He says He is”. My husband’s job was eliminated 1 month ago, we’re 1 month into a severance package that won’t last forever. I’m starting to fear yet fighting to believe that He will provide and it will be ok. Hard in this economy with so many out of work still.

    “When I am afraid, I will trust in You” Ps 56:3

    This blog came at a perfect time… a time that i should be on cloud 9 and thanking the lord and im not. My daughter rang me yesterday to say she is pregnant again. the delema is she has lost 4 babies in the last few years and it hurts so much she tells me the good news then often within a week or 10 days we are in tears.. I love all 6 of my grandchildren (4 from other daughter). Yes i hear her that this may be different she is no longer with the abusive fiance (dad of her 2nd child) but she lost one only 1 month after they broke up..so i want to soo trust god for this baby..but scared of the heartache. i know its not helping her to not have a excited mum at the moment.. lord i put this baby in ur charge. like every other one. help me thru this. my heart n spirit feel like they r caged on this subject they want to leap with joy yet im holding back. am i letting emotions rule me or past maybe i guess so.. i had only 1 miscarriage and grandchildren are so precious to me..lord help me to trust in you.

    I need to believe that my three year old granddaughter does NOT have autism. That she is going to respond to speech therapy and that she is going to Open her mouth, in the name of Jesus. Amen

    We are supposed to feel safe with friends, especially Christian girlfriends. Well…I’ve been P.U.N.K.E.D. and I was supposed to feel safe with these gals. So God is bringing me back to some basic truths. “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
    And I’m praying for God to be glorified with the outcome.

    Dear Lindsee – your post today truly resonated with me as the Lord has brought me on my own journey of Believing God and it began by taking Beth’s Believing God bible study. The Lord has been so faithful.

    Please forgive me for being bold but I trust I am following the prompting of the Holy Spirit…I recently sent a book to Beth Moore and I’d love for you to find it to read – it will have my name on it. And I pray that the Lord blesses you abundantly in your journey to Believing God.

    With every blessing,
    Lynne
