Power of Believing

The Power of Believing
Galatians 3:2-9
Angelle Sullivan

Everyone needs someone in their corner who will keep them grounded. Oftentimes, when we move up the professional ladder we can forget how or why we started. Well, the same can become evident in our spiritual life. When we lose sight spiritually, is there someone to recognize we are working outside of the will of God, even when our actions look as if they’re purpose-driven?

In Galatians 3:2-9, Paul humbly addresses the Church of Galatia about their new attitude towards operating by works. He poses a series of rhetorical questions to the Galatians, with hopes of reminding them of when they originally heard the gospel. Paul's approach was gentle, yet edifying as he recalled that Abraham was the father of faith. Now, be mindful the Galatians were not technically doing anything wrong, but Paul could see that they were being unknowingly influenced to go backwards and acknowledge a law that had been abolished under the death of Christ.

The Galatians lack or loss of spiritual sense caused them to believe that their works would force miracles to happen. However, Paul was there to remind them that God desires total faith and trust in Him. The ultimate goal was to reiterate to the people that they were saved by faith, and to return to the original message of salvation.

Now, do you have a Paul in your life? Is there someone to ask you if you prayed and sought God before taking on a task? Is there someone to help you understand who to say yes to and who to say no to? There are so many questions we should be asked daily, because we can create our own laws in an attempt to please God, when all He desires is our faith and trust in Him. God has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit to help lead and guide us.

So, if you don’t have a Paul in your life, it’s time to channel your inner Paul. Once he is channeled, begin to fine tune your listening to the POWER OF BELIEVING, because that will be the faith that moves you closer to Him.

Father God, you are awesome. Sometimes, we feel like we have to complicate your freely given love for us. Therefore, we put things in place to make us feel that we are worthy of your love. So, we pray that you eliminate every tactic that the enemy has in his arsenal to make us feel we aren’t worthy. Again, we say THANK YOU, in Jesus’ name, AMEN!
