I'll share my simple short sermon about FAITH with you!
I started a new position at work. At first I was very excited about it, because I wanted to make more money and this new position did just that. Well, after only one month of working in the new position I got into a heated argument with the supervisor, my manger quit and when the new manager got hired she quit too, then on top of everything else my hours decreased and I took a pay cut. As you can imagine, I was heart broken. Well, it's been two months later and nothing has change except I have a stable manager who likes her new position.
I say all of that to tell you that I have been taught FAITH in so many different ways. I learned to be content with what God has given me. Which I believe is the biggest lesson I have learned so far. I am learning everything I am doing at this very moment in my life is a FAITH journey and this journey is pushing me more to explore what I really desire in life. Not only am I learning about FAITH, but I am learning how to overlook the little things in life and focus on the journey that is ahead of me. The journey isn't easy, but I know it takes Faith to go through.
I encourage you to write down anything that inspires you in this blog dealing with simply short sermons about FAITH. About three years ago, this is all I did. I wrote on my mirror in the bathroom, posted notes on the refrigerator, and wrote all the encouraging things I read in books in my journal. Trust me when times get hard you'll need to be reminded of how faithful God is and you'll need to be encouraged.
I love the journey that I am on, even though it is not easy. My FAITH is being stretched to heights and depths I never knew it could go.
Joel Osteen, God designed you to withstand any storm
|Read this on GOTBOCMagazine: Joel Osteen's sermon God Designed You To Withstand Any Storm|
Life is full of things that try to push us down. We all face disappointments and setbacks. It's easy to get discouraged and lose our enthusiasm and too often we just settle where we are. But if we are going to see God's best we have to have this bounce back mentality. This means when you get knocked down, you don't stay down, you get back up again. It means when disappointments come or things don't go your way, you don't have a pity party and think life is just not fair. No, you shake it off, knowing what was meant for your harm, God is going to use it for your good. The enemy may have done his best, but his best will never be enough. If you stay in faith, what was meant to stop you will not be a stumbling block, but rather a stepping stone so you can go to a higher level. Read more @gotbocmagazine.com
Andrew Wommack, The Faith of God
|Andrew Wommack writes about FAITH on his blog|
- And it is impossible to please God without FAITH. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him. (NLT version)
Faith is what brings the things God has provided for us from the spiritual realm into the physical realm.
- FAITH is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen. It gives us assurance about things we can not see.
Our FAITH is the victory that enables us to overcome the world.
1 John 5:4
- For every child of God defeats this evil world and we achieve this victory through our FAITH.
- God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this, it is a gift from God.
This verse is saying FAITH, is a gift from God. There is a human FAITH that is inherent within every human being and there is a supernatural FAITH of God that only comes to those who receive the good news. Human FAITH can only believe what it can see, hear, taste, feel, and smell...it's limited to the 5 senses. Using natural human FAITH, we can sit in a chair we've never sat in and believe it will hold us up. That takes human FAITH, which God gave to every person. Yet, when it comes to God, we have to believe things that we can not see. You haven't seen God or the devil, you haven't seen heaven or hell, you haven't seen sin, and therefore you wouldn't know what you would look like if your sins were taken away. How can you believe in things you can't see? The answer is you can't see in invisible things with human FAITH. You need God's supernatural FAITH. God's faith goes beyond sight. God's faith operates supernaturally, beyond the limitations of our natural faith. We have to believe in God who we have not seen and believe that our sins are forgiven, which we can not prove by natural means. It takes God's supernatural FAITH to receive salvation. Where do we get it from? We get it from God's word. You can continue to read more at Andrew Wommack Ministries
Having Radical Faith, By Naquan
In my opinion, many people say, I have FAITH that God can do all things, but do they really? It's easy for a person to say they have FAITH in the Lord when everything is going well or when one believes God for very little. I believe God is calling His people to a new level and that new level requires a new level of radical FAITH. When you say, God is the same yesterday and today, what does this mean to you? Do you believe God is more than able to separate a body of water just as He did for Moses for you? When I say I believe God is the same yesterday and today, it means I believe God is able to do these things and exceedingly more. Am I saying that you should have the same measure of FAITH I have? No. Why? Because just as God is strengthening and developing my FAITH in Him, I know He is doing the same with many others. I am saying that as Christians we need to have the type of FAITH that believes God for radical things, even if it goes against nature. This means you can pray for a mountain in your life to be moved and if you pray and believe it, that mountain will be moved. So now the question is are you believing God for the impossible...Read more of this sermon at 2 Praise God

In the past 15 years I was probably suicidal on at least three different occasions. How would I kill myself? Who Knows. I googled it. It's hard to actually find a technique that works. Try googling I want to die. You'll just end up back on this blog. Which won't tell you how to die. Because there is no good technique. Trust me. But all of those moments had several things in common. I couldn't take the pain. I didn't want to die. I wanted the pain to die. Read more @ James Altucher
Joyce Meyer, How Strong is Your Faith
|READ MORE ON GOTBOCMagazine: 4 Power Thoughts from Joyce Meyer|
Faith is something that must be released. You can possess faith, but you must put it to use. A muscle that is not used gets weak and shrivels up. If you don't use your FAITH, then it's no different than not having any. Do you release your faith through prayer? Line up what you speak with God's promises and do whatever He asks you to do without trying to figure things out? Give your circumstances over to Jesus and be confident that He's got it all under control. Your life will change dramatically once you unleash your faith. Don't just have it in your heart, let it out, put it to the test, and be amazed at what God does in your life. Read More at Joyce Meyer Org
