BUILDING A LIFE OF FAITH
“According to your faith be it unto you” Matthew 9:29
You get to choose how much God blesses your life and
uses you in His plan for the world. Daring Fatih is the key to fulfilling
God’s will.
Where there is no faith, there are no miracles. Daring faith is the key to
miracles in your life.
Faith is ___________________ when I don’t see it.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things
not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Faith is _______________ when I don’t understand.
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved
with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house…” Hebrews 11:7
“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he
should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out not
knowing whither he went.” Hebrews 11:8
Faith is ________________ when I don’t have it.
“It was faith that made Abel offer to God a better sacrifice than Cain’s.
Through faith he won God’s favor…”
Faith is _____________ when I don’t feel like it.
“By faith he (Moses) forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: he
endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.” Hebrews 11:27
Faith is ____________ before I receive it.
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about
seven days.” Hebrews 11:30
If you with until after a prayer has been answered
to thank God, that’s gratitude, but it’s not faith.
Faith is thanking God that the answer is already
on it’s way even before you see it.
Faith is _____________ if I don’t get it.
God is more interested in your character than your comfort. He is more
interested in making you holy than making you happy. So sometimes He
gives you the ability to handle trials instead of removing them from your
life.
“The world was not worthy of them…These were all condemned for their
faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. God had
planned something better” Hebrews 11:38-40
“Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God” Romans 10:!7
“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that
perisheth, though it be tried by fire, might be found unto praise and
honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ” I Peter 1:7
