Romans 4:21 – And being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
Faith is available for everyone. When faith is progressively operated, it will receive the blessings of God. The three aspects of faith are Persuasion, Promise and Performance.
You need to be disturbing God. You need to knock at the door every minute, every second fully trusting and fully confident that God will do something in your life.
In any situation, the only way to overcome is by faith. If you want God to perform the promise, then it is only through faith.
Romans 4:19, 20 – And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.
Meaning of Faith:
F – Fervent in Prayer.
A -Availability to here.
I – Intake the Word of God.
T – Take the Cross.
H – Heaven Focused.
Faith is all about being ‘Heaven Focused’. If you want to experience faith, you have to be fervent in Prayer. Like Jacob did, until God blesses you, you need to keep confidently and fervently asking God.
Romans 1:17 – For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
You have a measure of faith. Faith should grow from one level to another. We need to grow in faith. Let us grow to the next level of faith. Let us be available to here what God wants to do in our life. We must say ‘Here I am’ and that is what the Lord is expecting from us.
Let us ingest the word of God. Whatever we do here, it should be confirmed with the word of God. We need to take up the cross in our life. Without the cross, there is no crown. Faith operated life should be able to take up the cross, which will have its blessings.
Faith operated life is ‘Heaven focused’. The just shall live by faith. Faith operated life is to receive spiritual blessings. Little faith as mustard seed – Mustard seed cannot be broken or crushed between your fingers. Only when the mustard seed faith is put in the anointing oil it will explode into blessings. They are unbreakable and powerful.
All God is expecting today are faithful people. If you want to shine, have faith. God wants you to grow from faith to faith.
Hurdles to Faith:
1. Fear: Let us take that fear out of our lives.
Matthew 8:26 – But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
2.Doubt: Let us not doubt.
Matthew 14:31 – And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
3. Reasoning: Let us not reason.
Matthew 16:8 – But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread?
Let us check the above three areas and grow in faith.
Romans 12:3 – For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
We have different measures of faith – little faith and great faith. Let us grow from little faith to great faith. Surrender yourself to the Lord. Let’s examine ourselves and let’s do what God wants us to do. Then you will be proven to be the best person in the world. Amen.
