Text: Matthew 17:14-21

We should pay close attention to this statement of faith that the Lord, Jesus Christ, is making here! 

Fearful vs. Faithful

Fear causes spiritual blindness; power to build mountains, unfaithfulness; weakness in following the commands of God.

Faith causes miracles; dreams answered; hope complete; overcoming difficult circumstances.

Psalm 121:1-8

In the time of trouble, one seeks to find promise, protection, and prosperity. To be consoled and comforted. Brought to that place where the help is lasting and foundational. 

Recognizing and reacting to the Lord and His deep concern for His children and creation. His deep love and compassion, which surrounds us with righteousness and grace. To Him we give glory, and it is Him we seek in these times.

There is an ascent in prayer and praise that will always draw you near to Him. That nearness cannot be explained in words or deeds but only by faith and trust in an Everlasting Father.

Psalm 63:1

David wrote this psalm while in the wilderness. The wilderness was a barren, desolate place where he was deprived of the comforts of home and exposed to bad weather and hostile enemies.

These things were in and of themselves enough to make the wilderness a very troubling and trying experience. David found it to be even more so for another reason. While in the wilderness he was away from the sanctuary of the Lord.

The question is not whether we, as God’s people, will have to go through wilderness experiences, but rather how to face them. It is at this point that David’s psalm offers tremendous help.

Genesis 35:3

 

A place of your starting position with God  (Vision and the vow)

A place of worship

A place where negative associations are released from you

A place of revival of the most pleasant recollections

Text: Philippians 3:12-14

Some days just seem heavier and more determined to overtake your plans. To imprint your mind with worries and challenge you along with your patience!

You are serving the Master of Breakthroughs. What most do not notice is that they are situated right across from their breakthrough!

Mak 11:20-24

20 In the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter, calling to remembrance, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”

22 Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you will have them.

Belief or believing is the key to receiving from the Lord. Not a shallow faith but a dedicated belief that God will, knowing already that He can.

Text: John 15:13

The greatest love is to lay down one's life!

Life is precious and is a gift from God! Each of us has life because of the grace and mercy of the Lord our God! Jesus gave up His life for all of us. He gave up His life for His friends so they (we) would have eternal life!

Text: John 2:16-17

Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, and body and soul into something as is possible. 

You know when you are around someone that is passionate for something. You can tell by their approach, their speech, and their actions.

When you have passion for something or some activity, you live it, think about it and plan how to involve your whole self into what you are passionate about.

Faith is a seed planted in our lives by the Lord- A measure of faith to each of us! Faith grows, if faith is nourished through and by beliefthat God will hear and respond. It will grow when you obey what the Lord statesto do! It grows when you live by faith not by sight!

Text: Matthew 21:12-14

The Essence of Prayer is still and will always be the lifeblood of the church!

What Jesus does here in the scripture and His statement resonates throughout history and time to imprint deeply into the hearts of all Christians today what He designates to be an empowerment in His house.
