I need help with my faith.
You are not alone. Everyone needs HELP with their Faith.
Faith, IS a Gift from God, “FOR” hearing “HIS” Word.
Hearing (reading) “HIS” Word.....IS the “beginning” OF Faith.
Continuing Hearing (reading), Advances the “beginning” of Hearing;
TO BELIEVING what you Hear (read).
My life has always been a mess and for the past ten years my problems have been tampering my faith.
Your LIFE (BLOOD) is NATURAL.
Gods LIFE (SPIRIT) is SUPERNATURAL.
* Your LIFE IS: subject to it’s habitat, the world, the people thereof, the corruption, backstabbers, liars, cheats, thieves, slanderers, persecutors....
* God OFFERS “spiritual LIFE”......”with Him”....AND “for the Willing WHO freely Choose...LIFE “IN” Him.
My life has always been dismal. I grew up with an abusive father who I am still stuck with, I have no self worth, I spent my entire life in grinding poverty, I have no hope in having any kind of future and there is nothing I can do to make things better. I am just average looking, I am not smart, I have no charm and I wish God had made me almost anybody else.
“YOUR” natural Life IS temporary. Gods “offering” of supernatural Life, IS Permanent Life.
I grew up an atheist but converted to Christianity at 16 after surviving an "accident" (not sure if we can discuss those kinds of things here, but you get the idea). Even to this day I have nightmares and flashbacks about being in the hospital and I feel horrified when I think too much about it.
Atheism, Christian, Hindu, Religious, etc. ARE association
The WORLD IS Corrupt.My
The conundrum IS....We LIVE IN the WORLD.
POINT BLANK...there ARE two KINDS of people....
1) People “OF” the World.
2) People who have COME OUT “OF” the World, and ENTERED “INTO” The Spirit “OF” God.
** YOU have to “TRULY IN YOUR HEART’S THOUGHTS” DECIDE
WHICH person YOU want to BE.
In all seriousness, You are focused on NEGATIVE behaviors of other people and situations that PLAGUE you, and wondering WHY God has MADE that YOUR FATE.
My FIRST advice to you would be...CHANGE WHAT “YOU” CAN CHANGE.
Decide WHAT “YOU WANT” to TRUST...
(Your dad, your family, your friends, a girl, strangers, multiple Hindu gods, money, a forever job, sciences, governments, man-made churches, etc,? )
OR DO YOU TRULY DESIRE to TRUST....GOD?
IF ^^ THAT BE YOUR TRUE DESIRE...
THEN...focus ON getting to KNOW HIM.
The KEY is “your true heartful desire”
Gods Offering of an ADVOCATE for you; Christ the Lord Jesus.
In short what I am saying IS:
Hear, Read, Learn, WHO God IS; (creator)
Hear, Read, Learn, WHO Jesus IS; (maker)
Hear, Read, Learn, WHO the Holy Spirit IS: (all-mighty)
God IS NOT concerned, with YOUR looks, World Corruption YOU are exposed to.
God IS Concerned WITH YOUR soul...YOUR spirit.
Did you KNOW, a Saved soul, a Born Again spirit, a Body risen IN glory.........IS Gods Inheritance?
Do you think an Inheritance is a trifle thing, THAT God does NOT WANT to receive?
Meaning; Hear, Read, Learn.....ABOUT GOD.
Meaning; LEARNING ABOUT anything....IS HOW Believe IS established, IS; IS HOW TRUST IS established.
God has NOT let you DOWN.
Your “SURROUNDINGS HAVE” let you down; Disappointed You.
Back to the original point. CHANGE what you CAN Change.
IF you WANT a one on one Relationship with God...
Learn ABOUT Him.
Decide to Believe what you LEARN.
Belief, leads to TRUST.
TRUST, leads to a Relationship.
AND REMEMBER...You have 24-7 access to the ADVOCATE God provided......Praying TO: the Advocate (Christ Jesus) Asking for direction, Asking FOR Him to put IN YOUR PATH needs TO establish your relationship with God...
BECAUSE, the fact IS: Having a Relationship WITH GOD, IS serious business.
Men randomly calling OUT TO GOD...uh...He is NOT LISTENING!
Which means...God IS THE GOD OF THE LIVING.
Human men ARE DEAD, in their SINS.
Human men BECOME, DEAD in their FLESH, when,
THEY have gone THROUGH the ADVOCATE Jesus (the Word of God)...
Heard, Learned, Accepted, Believed, Trusted....the Word of God.
FIRST STEP ^^
Confessed their Heartful Belief....of the Word of God.
SECOND STEP ^^
Then Does the ADVOCATE (Christ Jesus), notify God, YOU ARE PREPARED to be INCLUDED in having an “EXCLUSIVE one on one Relationship WITH God”.
AND...that one on one Relationship BECOMES EFFECTED, by, though, of.......the ADVOCATE (Christ the Lord Jesus)
....Until that TIME...God IS NOT Listening TO YOU.
Point being...Blaming who you DO NOT KNOW, and Who does not KNOW YOU...is fruitless, irrelevant.
No one can:
HEAR for you, READ for you, BELIEVE for you, TRUST for you.
Jesus IS all ears. Willing, Waiting, for you to Hear, Read, ABOUT God, Believe, Trust, Gods Word, and CALL ON JESUS NAME, to Direct you...
AWAY from your dismal, family, associations, circumstances that KEEP you in a repetitive, negative, vicious circle swirling downward to destruction.
] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her
, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
THAT ^ is a Directive TO: “Gods People”.
WHO ARE Gods “PEOPLE” ?
* ISRAEL....and all men IN Christ.
What IS “her”, they are being told to “COME OUT OF” ?
“HER” is the corruption “OF” the World, (lies, deceit, trickery, of men, of governments, of powers that advocate, promote, agree with abominations in direct contrast to Gods Word.)
] Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world
is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world
is the enemy of God.
CHANGE your Paradigm...
YOUR Focus...hear, read, learn, Christ Jesus, decide to Believe, to Trust, and EXPECT your journey to COME OUT OF THE WORLD to Begin.
IF you continue to FOCUS on the NEGATIVE, expect the NEGATIVE to consume you.
Glory to God,
