What Do You Want To Believe?

We all believe in something about life, in other words we all have some type of faith, because we can't really totally prove our beliefs, one way or the other. Even if you're an atheist, you still have a faith, basically that there is no God.

Many in the world just seem to float along with out ever looking into their 'faith' and why they have it. Again I say, that this is probably the biggest and most important question of your life, but have you spent any time looking into it? You still have some belief at the moment, even if you think, it's just too hard to find out the truth! The question to ask is, what do you believe and why?

Another thing you probably need to ask yourself is, do you really want to know the truth and what would you do if the answer wasn't the one you expected or maybe wanted? If you found out and believed there was a God, would you follow what he said? Do you just want to live your own life by your own rules, no matter what? What holds you back?

Hebrews 11:6 says, 'And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him'.

Some things to note about this statement. 'Without faith', the word faith meaning believing without really totally being able to prove anything. Something we all have at the moment, but not necessarily towards God. John 4:24 says, 'God is spirit'. 1 Timothy 6:16, states this about God , 'who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see'. Many verses in the Bible show us that God is unseen and can't be seen, including John 1:18 and John 6:46. God knows he can't be seen, that's what faith is all about, but he wants you to know he's there and wants us to see his workings and results.

The above verse of Hebrews 11:6 shows that God is pleased when we believe in Him and wants to reward us. The key words are 'earnestly seek him'. If you want to know the truth, you must put some greater effort into it! The question is, do you really want to know the truth? How much effort have you put in to find God? Have you asked him to reveal himself to you? Show you the truth? He will if you seriously ask him!

Give the answer some time, don't just expect something there and then. We want a 'God in a box', but he doesn't work like that! He is a sovereign King and Creator. Keep asking, 'earnestly seek'. Only when you have honestly and earnestly 'seeked' with no answer, can anyone even begin to say, 'there is no God'.
