in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Acknowledge and confess that God has saved you from death and helped you. Then He will come to you, act with the Holy Spirit and the Lord, and speak to you. He will fulfill what you have prayed about and what He has promised. God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son—who created the heavens, the earth, and all creation—will save your life even now and help you overcome all tribulations by being with you. God and the Holy Spirit, who were with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David, are with us now; They carry out everything.
Acknowledge God Almighty
God is omniscient and omnipotent. With His power and authority, He created all things. With that power, He helped incredible figures such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David. And with that same power, God loves and helps us and saves us from death. We must acknowledge God and trust Him with conviction; then He will continue to do such amazing things for us.
In faith, don’t forget about having conviction. Your faith must be clear, solid, and perfect. The contradiction among human beings today is that we believe in God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son, but we fail to believe with the type of conviction that is fiery like the sun. As a result, our faith can grow weak and become difficult to maintain. And despite having faith, we can feel miserable and fizzle out. This applies even to people who once preached fiery sermons from God’s pulpit. Some even leave their lives of faith completely.
Faith is to have conviction that God is almighty and all-knowing. Where does a person’s strength, power, and authority come from? It comes from the extent to which they have conviction in the Almighty Being. As much as you have conviction, you will receive strength from God, you will receive and offer love, and you will be filled with joy, giving glory to God like an exploding volcano! It is not solely about belief. It is about conviction!
Why Don’t People Have Conviction?
People don’t have conviction because they don’t know how much God has done for them. Because people can’t see God, they only credit Him with the help that was impossible for human beings to provide. They don’t realize how much more He has done in the past and all that He is doing for them in the present. Because they lack conviction in the core, they lack conviction about the other things as well.
God hasn’t helped only with miraculous things that human beings couldn’t do. He has helped you through people, through creation, and through changing situations and circumstances. He has helped you by helping your parents, grandparents, and ancestors. In fact, every time He helped the people in the Bible, God was helping you. Each account is a testimony of how He has helped you and continues to help you.
Respond to God with Conviction
Realize how much God has done for you and treat Him with even more conviction and love. With a heart filled with gratitude, think about every instance all throughout the night. You have to thank God! Shout at the top of your lungs, arms outspread, “God, You did this, didn’t You! Thank You, God!” Tell Him that you will do amazing things for Him too! He will recognize and acknowledge you for it. He will come to you and say, “Yes, I did that! I did it!” As much as you remember what God has done for you, you will be filled with vigor.
So don’t forget: The same God who parted the Red Sea for Moses, helped David defeat Goliath, and gave you physical and spiritual life…this same God is helping you now too! Though times may be difficult, when He comes, He will raise you up. He will restore you and make you even more prosperous. Acknowledge His help, thank Him, call on Him, and with His love and grace, you will surely prevail!
