While many of us are harping on who is committing the greatest sin and making comparisons of one sin to another, it is imperative to know that the one sin that keeps us out of heaven is unbelief. Yeah, some are quick to defend this statement by exclaiming, “I believe in God“! Well, for the most part, many of us believe there is a god. However, do you believe on God? To believe on God is to place all your trust in Him even when you do not fully understanding what is happening.
To trust in God is to have such confidence, safety and security in Him that you live fearlessly. Fear represents distrust. Only through consistent practice in staying in a right relationship with God can we build our trust in God. We all miss the mark sometimes, but overall, a true believer will not be overtaken by Satan‘s lies that cause us to distrust. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah (Psalms 62:8)
Meaning, do you trust and lean on God so strongly that you no longer rely on your own efforts, but you ask God how, when, what, why and where to do everything? More specifically, do you ask God how to overcome those things that are not pleasing to him according to the Bible? Do you ask God when to speak about something or when not to speak? Do you ask how to formulate words in your mouth that will bring positive effects on the lives of others? Do you ask God what is it that you are supposed to be doing on a daily basis?
Do you often ask God why you do what you do and ask Him to show you the how to do what He is asking you to do? Do you ask the Lord on a daily basis to order your steps and direct you into the path to where you need to go?
Do ask God about mostly everything before making a move? Well the Bible says acknowledge God in all of our ways and he will direct our paths. (Proverbs 3:6) Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident… (Psalms 27:3)… Indeed, having confidence in God enables believers to walk without fear.
