Welcome to church!

The message for today’s drawn from a service I attended in February which I can say I enjoyed thoroughly. As always, I saved it so I could share with you. Quick prayer now – Lord help me take in this word, and let it bear fruit through my speech and deeds. I trust you for help, trust your Spirit for understanding, and thank you in advance because you love me and are awesome! In Jesus name, Amen.

Bible, notepad and pens ready?

The Pastor started by saying, “when faith is at work, man begins to experience only what God can command; it takes man from humanity to divinity”.

He followed that quickly with, “the secret to a life full of triumph is the force of faith”.

What then is faith?

Faith is a supernatural trigger that induces the miraculous. It is committing the integrity of God to perform. Luke 1:45 says “Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfil His promises to her!”

Why should we have Faith in the Lord?

One reason – because He never fails. Never ever.

Numbers 23:19 – “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that He should change his mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?”

3rd John 1:2 – “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”

Deuteronomy 15:6 – “For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you.”

Ephesians 3:20 – “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us…”

Faith doesn’t only believe what God has said but it drives the believer to performance.

Please note 1 Corinthians 8:9 which says, “Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”

Our actions give credence to our faith. So for example, giving is a vital key for prosperity as evidenced by Proverbs 11:24 – 25 (One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed).

Faith in that word means you won’t slack on your givings to God. Simples! James 2:18 says, “But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.”

Work is another vital key for prosperity as seen in Proverbs 14:23 (All hard work brings a profit but mere talk leads only to poverty).

Faith here again means you put in the hours and not just be content with praying for hours on end without getting any work done.

How To See The Fulfilment Of Prophecies.

  1. Rejoice in the Lord
  2. Be at peace. Exodus 14:14. Psalm 46:10. 2Chronicles 20:17
  3. Remain steadfast in faith. 1 Corinthians 15:5-9.

 

Let’s wrap with this popular scripture, Hebrews 10:38 – “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”

Will you engage the weapon of faith this week? God bless you as you do!

    Amen! I loved this. Faith is definitely knowing God will show up and act in our lives, even if it isn’t in the way we want or in the time we want. Faith is knowing His plans and HIs ways and His time is always perfect and far better than our own. Blessings!

  2. Uh-huh!…True that!
    “Faith really is a perspective…
    God’s perspective based on His word.
    Its an understanding of God’s view of things,persons or situations and acting on that understanding as prompted.
    Its beyond a ticket to obtaining material needs or something. Its a lifestyle”(Romans 1:17-The just shall LIVE by Faith)
