Isn't the world screwed up?
You can see it.
Evil men destroy lives for profit while innocent babies die because of negligence.
All while the people who have the power to do something about it turn their heads to ignore it.
Meanwhile people are getting tricked into believing what's wrong is right and what's right is wrong.
Even some of the most devout Christians have mistaken the world's way of doing things for the kingdom of God way.
And not because it's a heavily kept secret either but mainly because they can't receive THE WHOLE BIBLE as the truth.
But the reason people can't receive everything in the Bible as the truth is because they are deeply distracted by lies.
And this is all apart of the devils master plan to keep us all from the truth.
There are many rules in the Bible that if you learn, talk about, and follow will add good blessings, happiness, joy and protection to your life.
But they're based on what God inspired men to write in the Bible and not based on what most people think and imagine.
He's God, He makes the rules, and it's up to us to receive and follow them.
Not the other way around.
Psalm 2:1 "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?"
Get to know your rights by reading the Bible everyday and you will teach yourself how to pray, and teach yourself how to obey God.
Joshua 1:8 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
Then all the blessings and happiness and material things will be given to you.
Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
Anything that's worth achieving will cost you something, so yes it takes some sacrifice, determination, suffering and resistance but if you can continue to read the Bible everyday there will be a major discovery of revelation knowledge and a good reward waiting for you.
But if your heart is not in it then why should it be acceptable to God?
If you're reading everyday it's easy to recall His promises and think about what He said.
Luke 6:45 "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh."
The more you talk about God the more you'll convince yourself to do His will and the more you'll obey His commandments.
Keep telling yourself how awesome, loving, forgiving and generous God is.
The more you read the Bible, the more you talk about God, the more you're obedient to Him, the more you'll see for yourself what God is willing to do for you.
Which equals the more confidence you will gain in Him, His word and His abilities.
The Bible will also keep you from making mistakes and teach you to learn from your mistakes.
Then you can pass it on to your family members, loved ones and friends.
If you read the Bible enough you will fine tune your spirit to obey and recognize true conviction from God.
You will destroy debilitating fears, you will stop blaming others and you will quit making excuses.
You will hear His voice and know how to respond in every situation by turning to Him and not your own or someone else's very limited knowledge.
And that's what true and strong confidence in God is
really all about.
