Believing Is Receiving

American roots go deep in the soil of believing. Our founding fathers were united. With one accord they trusted in God. Still on our paper money it says, ‘In God We Trust.’


Yesterday I was reading John 12. Verse 46-47 says, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.”


All over the world there are pockets of revival springing up. Unbelievers are turning to Christ. May these pockets connect until they become a river that runs throughout the world–unstoppable!


Jesus only spoke what the Father spoke. O Lord. Open our ears to hear what You are speaking in this time of history. Help us hear, believe and speak out! Take our roots deeper in You so that nothing can shake them.


John 12:49-50 says, “For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

Notice how Jesus used the word ‘command’ twice. What is the command of the Father? Everlasting life. He has no desire to see anyone perish. This is our hour to speak His command–believe.


Romans 10:17 says that faith comes by hearing the word. Verse 14 says, “…how shall they believe in Him of who they have not heard?…” Let us follow in Jesus’ steps and be about our Father’s business to proclaim salvation. O Lord open ears to hear and believe.
