Power and Force of Faith

I had the opportunity of speaking about the power and force of faith at ihpchurch.org last sunday.

As the Paris incidence is still fresh on our minds and hearts. Let us not be ignorant of the devils schemes. Evil is real, just like what happened in Paris. Let’s continue praying for the families. The urgency is on. We should stay strong in prayer

2 Chronicles 7:14(KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land

Faith is not a strategy or concept that Christians have bought into.

Faith is

A spiritual weapon (Eph 6:16)

A spiritual force (John 11: 39-40)

A spiritual seed (Matt 13:32)

Faith is a Spiritual Weapon

Eph 6:16 (NKJV) – above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

• A weapon that is not applied is ineffective.

• We must apply faith for it to work. Engage yourself in walking by faith

• Fiery darts of the wicked can only be quenched by using the shield of faith. In John 10:10 (NKJV) The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly

• He is not a gentleman, he is looking to hammer you were it hurts the most. But with faith, you are more than conquerors

John 11: 39-40 (NIV) – “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

• Faith has the power to reverse all things that are dead or dying in your life. It has the ability to restore nations, families, marriages, relationships, healing, destiny, finances etc.…

• Some of you have things that seem impossible. But the God we serve is a God of all things is possible if we believe.

• Remember all situations must be approached from God’s perspective

• His ways are higher than our ways. Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, “declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

• Greater works will you do. This is access to unlimited possibilities, the breakthrough realm

Faith is a Spiritual Seed

Matt 13:32 (NIV) – Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.

Luke 17:6 (NIV) – He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you

• Jesus compared faith to a seed, meaning it has to be planted to return a harvest

• Seedtime and harvest shall not cease

• Unplanted seed shall not yield a harvest

• Your planted ness in the house of God, your dedication to kingdom advancement is where the harvest comes from

• We don’t know how that works but God in Ecc 11: 5 (As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things)

Hebrews 11:33-34 (KJV) – 33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. 34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

In Conclusion:

Engage yourself, step out in faith for the God we serve has begun a good work in you and HE is faithful to complete it.
