James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

So, unless you are satisfied with devilish faith, it is going to take something more than a belief in God.

Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven.

Romans 10:9-10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

When a word is spoken, yet is not true, that is not a confession. Is He your Lord? Is He on the throne of your life? Do you believe that He knows best? Or do you pick and choose which parts of God’s Word you will follow, putting your own authority above The Author?

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him:] for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Upon what have you placed your faith? A god with a small ā€œgā€ who can be served conveniently? Or the Creator of the cosmos, of Whom you beg for wisdom?

Proverbs 14:27 The fear of the LORD [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name [was] Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed [are] they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
