When believing in god you give yourself to faith. By giving into this faith you cast all doubt due to reason aside in order to make yourself loyal to the being that gave you everything (allegedly) in life. By casting aside all doubt in god you bring yourself closer to your religion and your religious community.
Where you are today is no accident. God is using the situation you are in right now to shape you and prepare you for the place He wants to bring you into tomorrow. Trust Him with His plan even if you don't understand it.
