Beloved, there are three ingredients of faith: belief, trust, and confidence.
Mark 11:24 Amplified Bible (AMP) says:
24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.
Praise the Lord Beloved!!! 😃
You know Beloved, when tragedies come into our life we want the Lord to spring into action immediately. And if He doesn’t we get bent out of shape. But let me tell you the Lord will never stay within the parameters we set for Him.
Since we’re mortal, earth-bound, and sinful, we have a very narrow perspective and understanding of life. But our eternal, sinless, sovereign, and omniscient Creator sees and knows what we cannot perceive.
So, let’s be sure that our viewpoint of God’s role in natural tragedies comes from the Bible, not from our own limited “boxed perspective.” Scripture tells us of the Lord’s love, faithfulness, and wisdom. Whenever we cannot understand His ways, our faith in His goodness must be our foundation.
God Bless you, and have a blessed Tuesday!!!
you may not clearly comprehend the path God has you on right now, but clarity will come in time. As you wait on your vision to clear up take every opportunity to gain the advantage of "found godly knowledge". Godly knowledge will lead you into Christian wisdom and Christian wisdom will help you focus on the path God has you on.
God Bless you and have a great Tuesday.
Praise the Lord Beloved.
You know Beloved, at times all of us get our Christian foundation shook by some type of adversity or situation which tries to shake our faith in God. But as real as the issue may seem God is “Real” and bigger than the adversity or situation.
There's nothing too hard for God to repair. Just take all your cares to Him in prayer and then stand back and watch the salvation of the Lord.
Beloved, when adversities or situations make you question the "TRUTH - GOD", and though we may not see Him physically you must remember "God Is Real" and He loves you completely.
Have a blessed Tuesday Everyone
Daniel 2:47 NLT
The king said to Daniel, "Truly, your God is the greatest of gods, the Lord over kings, a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this secret."
the above account was the perspective of the wise, powerful and PAGAN king Nebuchadnezzar (once ruler of the world) about God.
Beloved, we serve a Holy God, abounding in mercies, who’s the same yesterday, today and forever.
He’s the same God who addressed Nebuchadnezzar as "king Nebuchadnezzar", humbled him in his pride and restored his kingdom to him. There's nothing God cannot do.
Have a blessed Tuesday Everyone!!!
Beloved, if you really want to get the wisdom of God, you'll have to do more than casually read the Scriptures a few minutes a day or post scriptural pictures on social media. You'll have to feed on them night and day. You'll have to get rid of the trash you've been feeding into your consciousness by reprogramming your mind with the Word of God.
Now there may be some of you that read this say: “Hold up Bishop, Houston’ that's not normal!!!"
And you’re right!!!
But think about this:
Most college athletes practices for hours every day, an Olympian spend many hours in a day training for their event. They do it because they're abnormally dedicated to their goals.
Beloved, the same is true for you. If you're going to achieve the kind of spiritual excellence you're hungry for, you're going to have to be abnormally dedicated to the Word of God.
This means you just might have to carry your streaming device or recorder device around with you everywhere you go. It just might mean that you'll have your razor or hair brush in one hand and your streaming device or recorder device in the other or a streaming device or recorder device in one hand and a fork in the other.
Beloved, do whatever it takes to totally saturate yourself with the Word of God. I wouldn’t speak to you any differently if I were your commanding officer about to send you into combat against the best skilled selected troops of an unrestrained enemy.
You’re God's front line assault force. You have an enemy who is doing his very best to abolish you. In this crucial, all-out, unrestrained offensive war, Satan will dispatch hell's choicest personnel to knock a patch of hair out of your head or bring you down.
Beloved, if you're going to make it through in victory, you're going to have to put in work!!!
Beloved, be abnormally dedicated.
Have a blessed day.
The Bible tells us that faith without works is dead. If we don’t put our faith into action, it’s not really faith; it’s just nice ideas. You see, when God truly does a work in our lives, it affects everything about us. It affects our words, our thoughts, and our actions, but we have to make it move.
Beloved, by your Christ-like actions people can tell that you belong to God. We all have areas where we can come up higher, but as believers in Jesus, we can be confident that God is at work in us. He is faithful and will complete what He started.
So Beloved, as you invite Him to search your heart and mind, as you surrender every area of your heart to Him and put your faith into action, you must believe, trust and have all confidence that He'll finish His perfect work in you!!!
But it is up to you to make your faith move.
Have a blessed day.
"And He said unto them, go ye into all the world preaching the gospel to every creature..."
