Phil:4:6- Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Brother and Sisters If God said it then why are you worried about it. Stand on His word and have faith. Thank God that it's already done and let the negative sayers and dis- believers go. It's time to have some FAITH...
The bible says without faith it is impossible to please God. I say without faith it is impossible to "Hear" God. Now faith comes b hearing and hearing by the word of God. Pick up that rusty sword which is the Word of God and know that Faith IS!
When the disciples asked "The Master" to increase their faith in Luke 17:5, and the Lord replied, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
See to ask for more faith is an indication of hardly any faith. Faith is not to be increased; rather faith is to be put into practical application. It takes a kind of faith to turn on the lights when you walk into your house on a dark night. But know if you haven’t paid the bill then there will be much doubt when you’re ready to click that switch.
For the Christian that bill has already been paid but the stipulation to living life to an abundance (advantage) is ( and I will now paraphrase Roman 10:17) Faith comes by hearing and hearing by “DOING” the word of God.
You see in the eyes of Jesus “DOING” is equated to “ BELIEVING.” Not “DOING” is equated to “UNBELIEF.”
In Matthew 17:19-21 The disciples could not cast out a demon that had a stronghold in a small boy. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
So we see even the disciples had a problem believing that they could do something they were already given the power to do. Once Jesus explained to them the principles of faith they begin to understand and walk in their Power, Authority, and Dominion. Listen I’m not talking about speeches, or repetitive word. I’m talking about POWER. It’s already there. Brothers and Sisters, We lack nothing!!!
The problem is many of us are RESTING our faith, believing that his past accomplishments were somehow enough. The Big Book calls that “Resting on our Laurels.” The bible speaks on this in Luke 17:7*8*9. It reads;
7 Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? 8Would he not rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’? 9 Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? 10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’”
In this parable God has revealed to me that the Servant is your faith.
The Servant coming from the field indicates a previous work or harvest in your life. Many of us have recovered from addictions, been delivered from sickness, have received Salvation, but now we are RESTING the SERVANT as if he needed rest. That deliverance wasn't too big for Faith. Stop acting as if it was too big for you.
It’s time to tell your Servant to get up and go out there and get to work. Don’t stop and take care of yourself faith. Get in here and wait on me and take care of my needs. Then you can go and rest. Stop thanking the Servant (faith) for doing what he is supposed to be doing and put him to work as this is his only duty. Thank God for the faith which exists in full power already for you.
Now walk in it.
Now talk in it
Now move in it.
Now pick up the Word of God and Do it.
This message here is coming from the Word of God.
Somebody’s going to open up and receive this like it the number one music/video track this year.
In the meantime I’m going to be walking by faith and not by sight….Peace
