Did you know that all men begin their course with the same amount of faith? Some men have more faith than others. How can that be? Is God a respector of persons?
Romans 12:3 Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, for God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
For some “religious reasons” some folks think you are stuck with the faith God gives each man. In the Holy Scriptures we see men having no faith, some with weak faith and a few with great faith. Forget those who have no faith and those with weak faith, let’s focus on those who had great faith. How does a man go from having no faith to having great faith?
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Some folks diligently give themselves to hearing the Word constantly. They are building on the measure of faith God gave them. People who are weak in faith have a tendency to be jealous of those who have more faith than they do.
You will never have anything you oppose.
Whosoever wants to have great faith can have it, God will be happy to supply all you want and are willing to have. As you have probably surmised by now, increasing your faith will require some effort on your part. Increasing your faith is not difficult, it just requires a commitment from the one who wants more. You can easily identify a person with great faith, they are the ones that say they can do all things through Christ that strengthens them.
2 Corinthians 4:13 As it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken.
We know that faith is released in words but something must come before we speak, we must believe what God has said before we can repeat it. The prayer of faith is an accurate, precise declaration that can potentially move a mountain. We do not need to have faith in our ability to speak eloquent Bible phrases. Our faith is in what Jesus did on the cross and what He said. This removes a tremendous burden off of our shoulders. We simply come to the place where we believe in everything Jesus said and gave to us.
Galatians 3:11 It is evident: for the just shall live by faith.
Some folks think the only time you “break out” your faith is when you come up against major opposition. Truth is you can use your faith anytime you want to for whatever you want. You could have a pocket full of money and leave it there in order to use your faith. Faith is used for desperate measures but not exclusively for desperate times, you can use your faith in lieu of your means. Do not put your faith aside and save it for emergencies, you are the just and you should live by faith. If you ever come up against a mountain you have never faced before, go to the Word and get built up specifically for that project. There is nothing in this world faith can’t overcome.
1 John 5:4 Whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.
YEAR OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
