Part 1: Faith for the impossible
Mark 9:23b Everything is possible if you believe.
Mark 11:22-24 Have faith in God. Have the God kind of faith.
3 KINDS OF FAITH 1. The EXCITED/INSPIRATION FAITH: You hear, get excited, shout amen, halleluiah for the moment when you are listening, but don’t remember the next minute and when the first test comes, you run into the left ditch.
2. The UNDECIDED FAITH CLAN: You hear the word, accept it, but you lay too much emphasis on facts and figures, circumstances and men’s reports, the doctor’s report, the IMF’s report, the economist’s reports. You hear the words ‘By His stripes, I am healed’ but because your body still aches, your womb has not conceived, the cancer has not disappeared, you start to confess the facts and not the truth. At the sign of any trial to test the word of faith, you run into the right ditch. You have circumstantial faith, undecided faith. 2corinthians 5:7 we live by faith not SIGHT OR BY REPORTS.
3. THE POSITIVE CONFESSION CLAN: These people line up their words with God’s spoken word. They have the God kind of faith, which speaks and things happen. God spoke the world into being. He created everything by the spoken word. God said, and there was…! Jesus said, let the fig tree dry up, and it did. Mark 11:24.
THE FAITH CONNECTION
Impossibilities <>>>>>>>>Possibilities [FAITH]
Impossibilities can become possibilities through faith. The key is to believe it in your heart, and speak with your mouth. Not just positive confession, rather positive conviction.
LUKE 18:27. The things that are impossible with men are possible with God.
QUALITY OF FAITH, NOT SIZE OF FAITH.
The disciples just like us, thought it was a question of faith size instead of with quality. And Jesus said to them and to us WOW Divas, Matt 17:20 Verily, I say to you, if you have faith as small as a grain of mustard, just that tiny seed of faith, you can say/speak, declare, command, decree, instruct, hive matching orders to this mountain, any mountain, sickness, debt, marital failure, past regrets, pains, ANY MOUNTAIN, and it shall move. In law, there is a difference between ‘will’ and ‘shall’. See also Luke 17:5-6.
As long as you have a mustard seed faith, you are still A CANDIDATE FOR THE MIRACULOUS. You don’t need a lot, you just need REAL GENUINE FAITH. FAITH THAT BELIEVES IN, WITHIN, DEEP DOWN YONDER IN THE HEART. The size of the mountain is not the issue; neither is your test the issue. Our real issue is: Do we believe? If we can honestly say yes! Then the world and your mountains need to watch out. 1 John 5:4-5…your faith will overcome the world, and all mountains. Guaranteed!
FAITH IS THE CURRENCY. USE IT. No kingdom business can be transacted without it. Matt 9:29b says according to your faith, will it be done to you.
Hebrews 11:6 says that without faith, (continuous, steadfast, courageous, unwavering, positive speaking faith), it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God, because anyone who comes to HIM must believe He exists and rewards those who seek Him. Only your faith will please God, not your whining, begging, complaining, or sulking. He does not attend pity parties.
Faith is the only currency that will give us access to the riches and resources of the kingdom.
Matt 21:22 says if you believe, you will receive WHATEVER you ask in prayers. (Doesn’t matter what it is, how big or impossible it looks to you).
Mark 11:24 I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE IT, AND IT WILL BE YOURS.
We therefore get things in the kingdom by exchanging faith for them. The kingdom of God lives and breathes by faith. Romans 4:3 says Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.
2 Corinthians 5:7 we live by faith and not by sight.
THE ATMOSPHERE OF FAITH
Faith cometh…..not through CNN, or Days of Our Lives, or Big brother, but Faith comes by hearing, and hearing, and hearing, and hearing continually, and letting it take root in your spirit, so that an atmosphere for you to receive your miracle is prepared within your heart. Our faith rises in an environment of faith. See Matt 9:20-22; matt15:28; mark 10:51-52; Acts 14:8-10 when faith is present, lives are transformed and this is the greatest miracle of all. On this day, May 21st, let it be known to all the universe that WOW DIVAS lives have been transformed. Impossibilities are transformed to possibilities. Only by Faith. May faith rise I our hearts. May we realize that faith is a currency. May we acknowledge its role as being a servant that needs to be sent on errands for it to give value. May we work our faith and see Mountains move. In Jesus mighty name.
The WOW DIVAS HALL OF FAITH Hebrews 11:1-6-12 May each of us have our names firmly embedded in the hall of faith along with Abraham, the father of faith, Sarah, David, Daniel, Noah and all he saints. In Jesus mighty name.
