The Benefits of Having Faith in God

The Benefits of Faith

If you have been asking "Why believe in God?" I'd like to tell you that there are numerous benefits of believing in God or having faith in Him.

We can glean some of these benefits from the life of Abram when he was probably stressed because he did not have children and so he asked God, "What will You give me because I am childless and my heir is Eliezer my servant?" (Genesis 15:2)

The Word of God then came to Abram saying, "Your servant shall not be your heir, but your heir shall be your own child.(Genesis 15:4) 

God then took Abram outside and told him, "Look up toward heaven and count the stars if you can for so shall be your descendants.(Genesis 15:5)

And Abram believed the Lord and God accounted it to him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6) and God later gave him descendants who were as many as the stars. Thus we can see that Abram gained a lot by simply deciding to believe that God could give him numerous descendants even if he was an old man married to an old, barren woman.

Why Believe in God?

1. You will achieve the impossible
From Abram's story we can see that the benefits of believing God include achieving the humanly impossible. 

Jesus also reiterated this when He said, Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:20) because If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. (Matthew 17:20)

Therefore, decide to believe in God and believe what He says in His Word and you will achieve the humanly impossible because With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

These humanly impossible feats that you can achieve with your faith include receiving healing from conditions that are medically incurable like the many people in the Bible who Jesus told "Your faith has made you well". (Mark 5:34, Luke 17:19)

2. You will please God
The Bible tells us that Without faith it is impossible to please God(Hebrews 11:6)

Therefore believe in God and believe Him so that you can please Him.

3. You will protect yourself
The Bible tells us that The shield of faith enables you to put out all the darts fired by the wicked one. (Ephesians 6:16)

Therefore pick up your shield of faith by deciding to believe in God and believe Him and His Word and you will be able to neutralize all the things the enemy fires at you.  

4. God can credit you with righteousness
If you believe what God tells you, He can credit you with righteousness the way He credited Abram for believing Him. (Genesis 15:6)  

Therefore, decide to have faith that God exists and to believe what He says in His Word, the Bible.
