Will You Beieve?

Don't expect wisdom to come into your life like great chunks of rock on a conveyor
belt.

It isn't like that. It is not dispensed like a prescription across a counter. Wisdom
comes privately from God as a by-product of right decisions, Godly reactions, and
the application of spiritual principles to daily circumstances. -- Charles Swindoll

Watch Ravi Zacharias on Atheism, Suffering and Absolutes.






The following has been taken from Joni E. Tada 's devotional



DO YOU BELIEVE?
Abram believed the Lord and it was credited to him as righteousness.
--Genesis 15:6




The panel of disability ministry specialists sat on the platform of the small auditorium.
Two hundred students of Russia's first college for training social workers were
gathered there to hear the specialists talk about disability policies in the United
States. The specialists, as agreed, spent the hour talking about various issues
such as housing, independent living, and employment. They were careful to respect
the wishes of the school by not speaking of their faith but rather focusing on the
issues at hand.

At the end of the presentation, the moderator asked for questions. Several hands
went up but one was most enthusiastic. He stood up and asked a question that shocked
everyone:
"Do you believe in God?"




The room was silent. Some students looked at the teacher, others nodded encouragement,
eager to hear the answer. The atmosphere became electric as the panelists leaned
forward in their chairs and shared their testimony. The students had come to learn
about human solutions to suffering, but what was on their mind was the most fundamental
of all questions: God.





The essence of humanity, both in society and the individual, is found in how we
answer that question. If we believe in God, it will make a difference in how we
live and learn. It should be asked on a daily basis as we ponder a decision, face
a crisis, undergo a temptation. Our affirmative answer forces us to trust God and
to yield to his way of life. And best of all, God affirms our hearts that he is,
indeed, in control.

Do you believe in God?

We live in strange times. Many people say that our faith in God should be only private issue - but in this same time real "private" (intime) life is on the first pages of newspapers. We sometimes don't think about the simple Evangelical truth, which can change world.
