Faith is Your Victory
1 John 5:4-5 MSG
Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.
Faith is the Force that brings the unseen into the seen
Faith is acting on the Word of God that you believe.
Faith without works (corresponding action) is dead
Faith is a practical expression of your confidence in God and in his word
Real Bible faith is unwavering trust in the love of God
If you don't believe God loves you, you won't believe what he says about you.
Faith is an act of obedience not emotion
Your Faith grows from the word of God
1 Cor. 4:13 NKJV
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,”[we also believe and therefore speak…
Faith is a Fact… an Act (without action it’s dead, dormant, without purpose)
Before it’s an act it’s a WORD… A spoken word!
Centurion soldier with sick servant… said to Jesus “You don’t even have to come to my house, SPEAK the WORD only and my servant will be healed!” Jesus said “I haven’t SEEN this great of FAITH in all of ISRAEL!
Under Authority… Words have weight or authority… but that authority is only recognized when you come under authority!
WORDS are Spirit Containers that carry FAITH or FEAR, LIFE or DEATH, JOY or SORROW, HEALTH OR DISEASE, POVERTY or PROSPERITY
What’s in YOUR WORDS?
John 6:63 Jesus said His WORDS are SPIRIT and LIFE. The more you hear the more you believe.
12 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”
And His disciples heard it.
20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says
Have the God kind of Faith… Not just faith in God but the God Kind of Faith
The God kind of Faith Says… MOVE!!!
Fear talks about how big mountains are,
Faith talks to those mountains and they move!
A mountain is anything that defies you and denies you the access to move forward in your life and your purpose.
Is it wrong to ASK? Some struggling with feeling like it’s presumptuous…
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “It shall be done to you according to your faith.”
Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Mark 11:25-26 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Offense is the match, and un-forgiveness the fuel that will burn your own house down.
Un-forgiveness is one of the biggest mountains and obstacles that will ever block you from reaching your destiny. Only way to MOVE it is with your FAITH!
