So many people say they believe there is a God. Many of those same people will also admit that much of the Bible—such as instruction not to kill, steal, or lie—is right. But believing God exists and having a relationship with Him are two completely different things. Saying the Word is true is one thing; living by it is quite another. When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and implement God’s Word into our every day lives, we grow. We change. We prosper. We can also change when we spend too much time with people who have no use for God or His ways, and that change doesn’t lead to prosperity. God knows our joy and fulfillment comes through a relationship with Him. Read His Word. Meditate on it. Apply it to your behavior and thought processes, and bloom, Christian, bloom!
