Believe God for “Good Things”

Believe God for “Good Things”

“You…promised…good things to your servant.” 2Sa 7:28 NIV

We strive each day to “walk by faith, not by sight” (2Co 5:7 NKJV). But it doesn’t come easily. It takes a mind saturated in Scripture to make a faith choice when you’re looking down the barrel of a situation that seems impossible. So how do you develop that kind of faith? For a relationship to thrive, both parties must invest time and energy into getting to know one other. Lasting connections are based on trust, and an intimate knowledge of the other person’s habits and character. And it’s the same with God. Over time, as you prove His faithfulness it becomes easier to let go of your fear and replace it with trust. One author writes: “Getting to know God means walking with Him, spending time in His Word, getting to know His spotless character and the countless examples of His unfailing love illustrated in His ironclad promises. It means praying, talking, sharing all the details of your life and the inner workings of your heart. He knows it all already, but He enjoys the intimacy of the conversation. And like any balanced relationship, we can’t always be the one talking. We have to make time to listen, to come before the Lord and get quiet, by silencing the noise of our thoughts and the rush of our emotions.” Remember, the only place fear has to work is in the empty space where your faith should be. Fear is based on what you see and hear. Faith is based on knowing that God’s Word is reliable, and that He has promised “good things” to those who believe Him for them!

I think everything published was actually very logical.
However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your content is not solid, however what
if you added a title that makes people desire more?
I mean Believe God for “Good Things” | The Encouraging Word is a
little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and
watch how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about
everything've got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
