Have you been fooled?

Do you have thoughts like How to I know that there is a God?

How do I know that Christians are not just fooling themselves?

Do you feel as if you are fooling yourself?

Do you feel as if that you know one part is Christianity is real, but these thoughts keep plaguing you, or is if you can't believe.

Do you have anxieties?

Do you have trouble sleeping or eating?

Do you wonder even if you are a Christian?

Have you ever asked what faith is?

Faith is taking God at His Word.

There is a spiritual battle going on the inside of your mind.

How often do you spend meditating on God's Word?

Do you have your Bible close?

Ok, let's take a look into the good book, the Bible.

Turn with me to 1 Peter 5:6-10 Living Bible Translation

"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time."

What does that tell you?

"Humble yourself"

How do you humble yourself?

"Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you."

How many anxieties?

"All"

Why do we respond to that? "Because He cares for me."

If we do not give Him our daily struggles, we are showing God that we have not trusted Him.

He cares for you!

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

God is warning you to be on the alert!

Why?

Because the devil is out to trip you up.

Who is the devil?

The devil is our adversary; the enemy; one that opposes or resists.

"But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world."

What does God tell you to do?

Resist satan.

How are we resist him?

By staying "firm in your faith."

What is faith?

Faith is taking God at His Word.

Knowing that in the same experiences of our sufferings, we are not alone.

Other people are going through the same things that you are going through.

"After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you."

What you are going through won't last forever.

We must choose to believe.

We must choose to believe in the right things, not the wrong things.

You must have faith to believe.

God has given each a measure of faith.

", according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith." Romans 12:3c

The change will come when we chose to believe God's Word in the heat of a spiritual battle, whether it be for the mind or the will.

We need to put our trust in God, than he who is in the world.

We need to trust in Christ not in our self or others.

We need to live in such a way that neither God, or man could point a finger at us.
