Q: What does What's the difference between "believe in god" and "believe god"? mean?

Yeah, you're right about your suspicion. XD

"I believe in God" can mean many things, not just "existence" or "can help me", depends on the context.

It could also mean you believe He is powerful to save, or whatever attribute, character, etc.

"I believe in God"=
"I believe in God's power to save."
"I believe in God's existence."
"I believe in God's promise."
"I believe in God's faithfulness."

It depends on what you're talking about/is happening.

"Believing in someone" really means you "put/have faith in them", that's the term!

Hope this gives you a much clearer picture.

Q: Please show me example sentences with what is the difference count and calculate.
A: count - to determine the number of something. It means adding up, or tally up.

e.g. She is counting the stars in the sky.
Note that it sounds strange to say that she is calculating the number of stars in the sky... unless she is a scientist, then that actually makes sense! So calculate in general implies more effort is required as compared to counting.

calculate - to figure out a value of something that involves more than simple counting.

e.g. Google Map can calculate the shortest route from your current location to your destination.

A: So “I’ve had in a long time” means that it’s the best that you have had since a long time, meaning that it isn’t necessarily the best of your whole life (although it also isn’t necessarily not that), but rather just that it is the best you have had in a long time/in a long while
