If thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God  

Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? (John 11:40 KJV)

if thou wouldest believe showing open gates

When Jesus showed us four days after Lazarus had been dead and buried, He told his sister Martha that her brother will rise again. Martha thought Jesus was merely trying to comfort her with some spiritual talk. When Jesus later told her and the others to remove the stone from Lazarus’ tomb, hey freaked out! Jesus then said to Martha “said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe , though shouldest see the glory of God?”.

These powerful words are still being echoed in our ears today by the Spirit of God. He is always telling us, if we would believe, we should see the glory of God. It is astonishing to me how we, believers, struggle with believing the Word of God today. I will tell you out of my personal experience and struggles and that of a minister interacting with many believers that the Church has a severe problem truly believing the Word of God.

The saints of old, especially E.W Kenyon, identified a serious faith flaw with us, which they called “mental assent.” It is a state in which we might know the scriptures but not truly believe it. It is very deceptive because we assume we believe when we indeed do not. How we call many things “faith” today, which are not faith or believing at all! The Lord is saying to us today, “if you would truly believe what I have told you, you will see my Glory in your life!”


What does it really mean to believe? What is the difference between knowing and believing?


Believing is not accidental or some “mystery” thing that your spirit does outside of your control. You can train your heart to believe the Word of God. The Spirit of the Lord can begin by showing you if you genuinely believe the scriptures or not. Train your heart with the Word to believe the Word.


Ask the Spirit of the Lord to help you engage your heart in training it to believe.
