Day 168 - The Question of "Are you a believer?"

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023


How completely do you answer when people ask, "Are you a believer"?


When others ask you, "Are you a believer?" there may be times it is uncomfortable to answer yes. Imagine Peter being told by Jesus that not only would he deny Jesus, but he would do it three times. Peter could not accept that, yet it happened. Think about Peter the next time you decide not to respond in a way that indicates that you are a BELIEVER when asked any question about your faith. If you have felt uncomfortable in the past, how will next time be different? How will you help others learn to be strong in their convictions? Everyone needs to be cautious about denying the Lord. We are not guaranteed that we will have a chance for forgiveness. Ask for forgiveness and keep Jesus fixed in your vision if you have hesitated.


Prayer:

Forgive me, Lord, for any neglect I have shown. I am sorry that when I was young or in some settings, I was hesitant to embrace my faith in front of others. I know that I have consistently recognized you existed, but I did not always understand your grace and the sacrifice of Jesus. In those times, I was weak. I humbly apologize and ask that you let me start today anew. Now I know that You and Jesus are the only path to happiness and joy here on Earth and in Heaven. I am a committed believer and will not feel the types of hesitation I have had in the past. I am grateful for you, your blessings, and your love. You genuinely lift me to walk in a world set apart from the world without you. Allelejuh. Praise God. Amen.

I feel so fortunate having growin up in an ecumenical home, and my parents' example of tolerance, kindness and 'walk your talk' spirituality.


I was shocked as a young teen when I visited a school friend's home, and her parents asked if I 'believed,' then laughed when I told them what church we attended weekly! (We sprinkled rather than dunked, their comment was, 'go walk in the rain!')

I didn't visit them again.

My parents would not have mocked a guest in their home ... I later told a friend I 'should have' said, 'oh, ___? Go jump in a lake!!' And she, like my parents, told me it was better I hadn't stooped to their level, and just le…

Another beautiful post! I have always believed even when things might not be what how I think they should be. I know the Lord leads me and is always guiding me. I pray your shoulder surgery gives you much relief.
