An Essential Component…

And these signs will accompany those who believe
Mark 16:17

Have you ever been undertaking a task only to discover that a vital or essential component to its completion was missing? Without that piece it can never be finished. At best, without it, the result will be weak or deformed and won’t function correctly. This can prove to be very frustrating and often disheartening.

Today’s verse reminds us that God’s signs & wonders only follow those who believe and trust in His promises. Believing God’s Word individually is often the vital piece missing to obtaining His victory in our lives. People often want to trust in those who trust in the promises of God but that’s not the key to victory that the Bible teaches. We’re taught to individually believe & trust the promises of God and then we get God’s result.

Remember that God’s Word is chock-a-block full of powerful promises and 2 Corinthians 1:20 reminds us that every promise of God is yes & amen in Jesus. This means that you and I can have exactly what the Bible promises. The missing element to most people’s success is to individual believe, trust and have faith for themselves so that God’s Promise can occur.

This week let’s grab a hold of the promise of God that is most vital to our future. Let’s find Bible verses that support and encourage this promise. Then let’s start speaking them out, memorizing them, journaling and remembering them. As we believe them, we’ll start to see signs & wonders that we previously thought were impossible.
