Religion is believing God can but making excuses for when He does not. It defers all benefits to the afterlife.
Relationship is not just believing God can but knowing that He will! Not just in the sweet-by-and-by but in the sour-here-and-now!
2 Corinthians 1:20
20For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.Â 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.Â 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.Â 23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.Â 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
