Strengthening your Faith

What Are You Doing With Your Time?

This past Sunday, Pastor Johnson preached a powerful message where he posed the question, "What Are You Doing With Your Time?".  I think that the question is not only relevant, but actually a vital link in maximizing our faith in God. James 2:17 says that,"Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." 
 
**Godhas blessed us with the gift of time, but what are we doing with it?  Some would say that we "waste it" or are "killing it".

Sustaining Your Faith Through Trials

Sometimes, things can be the same for so long, it is hard to even imagine that God can change them.  Realize that this is a trick of the enemy to make you doubt God, and the promises that are rightfully yours for the asking. 
 
Stop living in fear and start proclaiming what is rightfully yours.  Speak it out loud into the atmosphere.  Whatever it is that you are believing God for, trust him and stand on His Word. 
 
He has not turned a deaf ear to your cry, He has not forgotten, and He definitely knows right when to step in.

We're Almost There...

The end of the year is approaching quickly, and a lot of us believers have some "orders" that we placed with God that need to be filled by December 31, 2011, 11:59:59. 
 
So, what do we do in the meantime?  Praise Him in advance for what He is about to do.  If you REALLY believe that you are going to get what you have been praying for, you will praise Him like you have already received it!
 
Personally, I know that Pastor and I are in for somewonderful

Make Sure You Qualify

When walking in faith, remember that you cannot reap the full blessings of God without qualifying. 
 
We MUST live holy before Him and present our bodies a living sacrifice unto Him, which is our reasonable service.  Don't "short-change" yourself by choosing to live beneath your privileges by knowingly walking in sin.
 
Go ahead and get EVERYTHING God has for you.  It is yours for the asking!
 
God is waiting to bless us, but we have to qualify.  Don't be your own hindrance.  Change your walk...TODAY!

Enduring in Your Faith

Let us always remember to thank God for those new mercies that we see every morning; and after we have given thanks, stand assured with great expectation that God is going to do JUST WHAT He said He would do.  Remember, FAITH is not believing that God can, but knowing that He WILL!

Be driven by your Faith

There was a man by the name of Bartimaeus who really needed something from Jesus.  The crowd told him to be quiet, but he cried out even louder.  He caught the attention of Jesus, made his request known, and received his healing.
While walking in faith, be careful not to follow the crowd; they could possibly hinder you from receiving your blessing and fulfilling your destiny in Christ.
