As in the military you are taught to have ‘confidence’ in your superior Officers and N.C.O.’s. They are the ones who make the decisions and give the orders. This is the backbone of what keeps the men doing the job they are needed to do.
Now in your personal life – What are your beliefs? These beliefs are the forces that will keep you going when it seems that all other things are against you. Without a strong core of beliefs, you are doomed to fail before anyone with a strong belief system of their own would loss heart.
My personal beliefs are that God created the earth and all that is in, on, and over it. He also sent His Son Jesus the Christ (Messiah, redeemer and deliverer), All this along with the entire universe.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.
Without a firm foundation and understanding of “Your God”, you are pitting yourself alone against all the powers of this world and its’ forces who are working against you 24/7 in your success in this world. Now I’m sure you think you are “Superman”, but I have my doubts about that. I am not going to be Politically correct about this, but without Jesus the Christ as your personal savior and having a personal relationship with HIM; you are not going to make it.
In God’s Sons Army, There are no Non-com’s and no Officers! You report directly to Jesus himself. He is your ONLY leader, there is no one in between!
