Believing God helps us be the person God intended

We all claim to believe in God, but how often do we actually believe God? Do we take his words to heart, believe in His promises to us, and His ability to make miracles happen? Beth Moore, the director of Living Proof Ministries in Texas, uses the biblical story of the Israelites wandering in the desert for forty years searching for the promised land as a metaphor for our own lives. The goal of "Believing God" is "to encourage any Christian who will listen to move to his or her personalized place of divine promise and to flourish." Moore does not define this "promised land" as a life of ease or wealth, but rather as the place where we fulfill the destiny God put us here to accomplish. As we cooperate with God and God's plan for us, our lives take on greater meaning and we achieve an inner peace. Moore encourages everyone to make a five statement pledge of faith: "1) God is who He says He is, 2) God can do what He says He can do, 3) I am who God says I am, 4) I can do all things through Christ, and 5) God's Word is alive and active in me." Several of the chapters of "Believing God" are dedicated to exploring each of these statements in greater detail. All five are powerful and have incredible ramifications for our lives, but perhaps the most life-changing statement is "I am who God says I am." As Moore states, "I tend to want to rewrite it, 'I strive to be who God says I am.' Nope. That's not what the Word says. It says I'm already who God says I am." And so, who are we? In Ephesians 1:3-8, we discover that we are "blessed, chosen, adopted, favored, redeemed and forgiven." Moore also maintains that God tends to purposely put us in situations that force us to face our insecurities because God wants to weed them out of us. After discussing the five statements of faith, Moore turns her attention to helping the reader discover her promised land. She explores the importance of Scripture in our lives. She also encourages us to explore our own history with God in order to discover that God has been faithful to us. Lastly, she maintains that there will be moments of wonderful revelation, but that most days, following God and believing God means doing the basics - prayer, worship, and giving. By living our lives in tune with God we can have confidence in a "long-term victory." "Believing God" is a powerful book. It forces the reader to take another look at a faith that she may have taken for granted. It encourages all of us to make "faith" an action rather than a noun. Most importantly, it can help us become the people God intended us to be.

An eye-opener of a book

After reading this book, Beth Moore has made me realize that I am one of those Christians that has been living that mediocre life, not the victorious life that comes from really believing God. This book will truly inspire any Christian to take a closer look at their life and seriously consider which 'belief' road they choose to take ... believing in God or believing God. The five points she asks the reader to make of part of their daily living do make a difference and serve as reminders for us as Christians to not just merely believe 'in' God, but BELIEVE God. I highly recommend this book.

Living from Believing

Have you wondered why so few Christians live a victorious Christian life? Why are so many people in the church defeated and living lives of mediocrity? These are the questions Beth Moore addresses in this book. And she does a great job providing practical and down to earth answers. It's been said that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. And Moore's book addresses the importance of believing God for who He said He is and our need to rest in His grace. God's intention is for believers to be found successful in His provisions through Jesus. It's a reminder we all need and it's a message Moore is uniquely equipped to deliver. Of course so much of Moore's charm is conveyed through here verbal teaching. However, her enthusiasm still comes through loud and clear in this book. If you're looking for the life given to those who are more than conquerors, allow this book to point you to God's supply.
