God wants to encourage you today.

He wants to build you up in your most Holy Faith…  He wants to strengthen you and help you and deliver you.  He wants you to be blessed.  He wants you to know that He is able to set you free from every snare and every devil and every fiery trial.  He speaks to you by His Word and through the Anointing and assures you that He has everything under control.

We have a lot going for us.  We are blessed and well provided for.  We live in abundance and suffer no lack.  We are God’s People and we are a special people…  God calls us “Peculiar”… “Set Apart”… “A Holy Nation”… “His Children”… “His Husbandry”… “His Garden”… “His Temple”…

We are blessed with an abundance of His Word…  Yet, many are hurting and wondering and wishing… some are doubting and even more are struggling with apparent impossible situations and trying circumstances.   If this is you…. hold on!

God wants you to be delivered.  God wants you to be free.   God wants you overcoming, ruling and reigning in life.  Deliverance is for you.  God is for you.  The Word is for you.

 

And God is Able!

The world is looking for heroes.

I’m looking for heroes.  People who inspire.  People who blaze trails.  People who refuse defeat.  Dreamers.  Pioneers.  The Bible is a great place to find winners.  And I had rather be around winners than losers.

Losers are for losers…  Winners are for winners…  In the Bible we find ordinary people who do extraordinary things.  People who are facing dream-shattering and hope-destroying situations and circumstances.  In the Bible we discover real men and real women.

The world is in for a shaking.  It will grow in intensity.  It will be good for those who know how to stand and it will be disastrous for those who are uncommitted and backslidden.  It will reveal heroes.  It will expose the strong and defeat the weak.  It will help the church… the true Church.  It will reveal the shallowness and the superficiality of religion.

Heroes are on the way back.  They are about to step out of the shadows into the light of the NOW.  History will be a great stage for the standers and the winners and the doers and the believers.    The movers and the shakers.  The courageous and the brave…. History is entering into a paradigm shift.   Nations are convulsing.   Governments are failing. Kings are falling.    But the Church is prevailing.   And will continue to prevail. Because Jesus is the Same yesterday, today and forever.  World leaders have come and gone.    But:

 

The Church will prevail

There are two kinds of faith.

First, there is Natural Faith and secondly, there is Supernatural Faith.

Natural Faith is based on what we see (our senses) and Supernatural Faith is based on what God Says.  Thomas exercised natural faith.  He would not believe (have faith) unless he saw the evidence.  He heard that Jesus was alive, but he refused to believe it unless he actually saw Him.  This is natural faith.

Abraham, on the other hand, exercised supernatural faith.  Abraham determined to believe (have faith) regardless of what he saw or felt.  His “senses” were not consulted.  He chose to Believe God.

Most believers are living in the realm of natural faith.   They tend to believe only what they can see.  They are subject to their senses and are dependent on natural facts.  Natural faith operates only in the realm of the visible, the sensible and the factual.

Other believers have determined to live in the realm of supernatural faith.  They can and do believe things that they cannot see.  They are not bound to the sense realm.  They are able to move beyond the natural and physical into the realm of the supernatural and spiritual.

They live by Truth instead of Facts

There will be times in your Christian Experience when it seems like nothing is happening

However, waiting is not bad.  Not if you understand what is taking place in the realm of the Spirit.  When we PRAY and BELIEVE, powerful spiritual forces are released.  These forces are invisible but they are REAL.  They work and they produce.  While we wait, we can win.  We do not have to get discouraged, or depressed or frustrated.

We can discover facets of God’s Grace and Tender Mercies that we never knew existed if we WAIT IN FAITH.

You will reap in due season (there is an APPOINTED TIME set BY GOD for your answer!), if you faint (to relax or become exhausted) not… Gal 6:9

While we wait, there are some things we can do to strengthen our Faith Position.  Waiting does not mean “doing nothing”.  “Resting” in God does not mean idleness or laziness.

While we wait can know that:

  • God is Working
  • satan is Resisting
  • Patience is developing
  • The Answer is Coming

 

And God is with us

Somebody is going through the fire today.

Fires are common to all Believers.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice….  I Peter 4:12

There are several things you can do when you find yourself in the fire.

  • You can run away
  • You can try to put out the fire yourself
  • You can surrender and give up
  • You can beg for help or
  • You can rejoice, trust God and stand

We need to understand some things about fires.

  • They are not caused by God
  • They are not used by God to “teach” you something
  • They are not punishment for something you did or did not do
  • They are not terminal or fatal for the believer
  • They are not unquenchable

Above all taking the shield of FAITH wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked…  Eph.  4:16

Who through faith… quenched the violence of fire… Heb. 11:33-34

It’s neat to know that God will not only deliver you from the fire but will walk with you through it…  (Isa 43:2)

 

And if He’s there, you will always be OK

The level of victory

The Level of Victory we are experiencing is directly proportional to the amount of Word that is active in our life.  This is a fixed equation.

  • The amount of HEALING we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…
  • The amount of PROSPERITY we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…
  • The amount of PEACE we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…
  • The amount of JOY we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…
  • The amount of FAITH we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…
  • The amount of OVERCOMING POWER we have is equal to the amount of WORD that is ACTIVE in our life…

All redemptive provisions work proportionately to the amount of Word that is active in us.

Whatever revelation we have from the Word is what we will have faith to act on and receive.   Revelation is important because this will determine our level of deliverance.

Knowledge is not enough.  Intellect will not do it.  Revelation is imperative to receiving and maintaining our deliverance.

 

Our success level will never exceed our WORD level

What if?

“But, what are you going to do IF….?”  “But, what IF…?”  What if it gets worse?  What if I’m not healed?  What if the money doesn’t come in?  What if my marriage fails?  What if I don’t get the job?

If our faith is determined by situations, then we really do not trust God.  We are “wishers” and “hopers.”    We are compromise and chameleon Christians.

If our faith is based on the Word, then, sink or swim… live or die… win or lose… succeed or fail… We Believe God!

Listen to the Hebrew Boys:

Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O king… but if not, be it know unto thee O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up…      Daniel 3:17

Fires are faith’s Proving Ground.  Trials, Tests and Fires are the test track for your faith.  God does not bring on trials but they are the testing and proving ground for your faith.  “Impossible” and “hopeless” situations are opportunities for God to show Himself strong in your behalf.

The fire you are now in is purifying and refining… it cleanses and tempers… it develops and works patience into you.  It forces you to depend on God and it directs your attention off of yourself and on His ability.

 

Make your boldest confession in the midst of your hottest fire
