Growing In Faith Against All Odds

One of the significant things that challenges me at whatever point we talk about the stroll of Faith is consistent development in Faith. At the point when I took a gander at some elderly people, men (Fathers) of Faith; they proceeded immovably even till their final gasp and numerous others in spite of the odds.

Here is a recap from the sacred text about Father Abraham, I can’t chat on Faith without referencing him. The story of Abraham and Sarah without kids and their supernatural child Isaac is a story about trust in Christ, an account that puts stock in God despite seemingly insurmountable opposition, as the logical mind claims the Promised kid (Isaac) was impossible.

At the point when it looked sad, Abraham accepted the guarantee and anticipated that God should satisfy it. He trusted God, and accordingly, he turned into the Father of numerous countries.

The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary characterizes a shield as a large bit of metal or calfskin conveyed by soldiers in the past to secure the body when battling. In like manner, your Faith is the main adversaries target. This is because your confidence is your most noteworthy resource, a safeguard against all sinister attack.

The Greatest Battle on Earth is the clash of Faith. Faith is the substance of Christianity, and that is the thing that makes a Christian. It is the Heart of Christianity. At the point when your Faith stops, your heart stops, and when your heart stops your predetermination stops.

At the point when your Faith in God isn’t all out, it is fake! Jam. 1:5,6.

In general terms, how can we characterize faith? “Faith” is gotten from the Greek word Pistis, which signifies ‘conviction’ or ‘trust’

God made the universe by having confidence in what he would do, even before its appearance. God expressed words for making things, and at the same time attempts to keep up a working universe. He talked and the world was conceived. His quality, God keeps up everything. Hebrew 11:3

You ought to satisfy the guarantee that God will recuperate all that the adversaries have eaten. On the off chance that you anticipate the guarantee of God, it will come. It won’t come on the off chance that you don’t anticipate it, it just won’t.

We read in Romans, ‘But justice by Faith it’s in your mouth, and your mouth says… ‘ The words near you, … (Rom 10:6, 8)

The Foundation of Faith is the word. (v. 8). “It’s near You; it’s inside you”

What you are stating reflects what is in your heart. Human confidence sets forth incredible accomplishments and still does. Similarly, as God made His universe, you make your reality with your words with His words.

Faith consolidates conviction with expectation and activity. Individuals are encountering self-improvement and accomplishment through Faith. Have you ever planned and failed? This is Faith. You accept that you would not get a credit, so you consider it while in transit to the atm.

Sometimes, because God understands how strong the principle of faith is, God does not respond to prayers, sometimes, he knows the things we ask for will not be good for us, or it’s not at the right timing, so we say… “Oh, Lord, I can’t hear your voice any longer. Speak to me and direct me to that.” We love to wish God talk to us. We love it. But God does not answer us because He does not want us to have something that is not right.

God wants us to speak with him. He wants us, however, to pray so that the faith which He gives reflects because our prayers are based on His good intentions.

It’s not just Faith coming through hearing. It continues with an ongoing hearing. What you hear gives confidence to what you say. You think about it then and something occurs to you. This is why Jesus says we should have the King sort of trust if we want to function as He does. The Bible says, “By hearing faith comes” (Romans 10:17). Faith does not just come. It starts with constant listening.

For instance, you will have a negative Faith if you listened to positive teaching for an hour and then listen to the negative talk for two hours.

Everything in your heart comes out of your mouth, so a constant diet in the word of God is necessary. Check your company, check what you are hearing; check out books, music, the movies you watch, and the church you attend. You’ll find out what you’re listening to. If you talk, be careful what you say despite your anger. Anything you say will happen. It will be your greatest test, and it is up to you to decide what you should think. Christ’s word must fall into your head and touch your heart. The Bible states, “It is near thee; it is in thy mouth and in thy souls.”

Paul said the word that is near you is “the word of faith” The Bible says that if a person wants to be saved, he needs to believe and speak, not feel. When you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart, that’s when salvation occurs, Paul says. If you are born again by your words, you can be kept out of hell and go to heaven by what you say.

The Bible tells us what to say in order to be saved. If you say that Jesus is your Lord, but you aren’t living as if He owns your life, you are insulting Him.

What you keep saying the most is what you will receive. If you pray for something and then start saying the opposite, you will get what you say. You are saved by confessing, “Jesus is Lord,” and you cannot say this unless the Holy Spirit enables you.

God has promised us to be like a tree planted by streams of water if you live righteously and meditate on His word. If you continue to say and believe it, God says, “You will not be put to shame. In the end, you are the one to whom he writes with happiness. God uses us to give others faith. It will never be shameful for anyone who trusts in Him. He is going to bless you so much that many will wonder.

If I say “I promise I will do this for you, but in reality, I want you to believe that what I promise is already done” If you have been mentally consenting to the truth but not mentally acting on it, you’ve been living below your privilege for too long.

The Bible tells us, “We walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Cor 5:7). This means that faith and sense of knowledge are not compatible. Faith is the substance and evidence of things that your sense of knowledge cannot see. It is not real. I’ll believe it when I see it. I can’t see it, then it’s not real, then I’ll see it; this is real. This is real, this is not a dream. It’s real, and this is a promise, and I back up every word of it because I’m not sure what I’m doing. The only way God’s promises will become a reality in your reality is for you to act on them.

For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come (1 Timothy 4:8 AMP).

Like physical principles, you must learn and apply the principles of the Kingdom to make them work for you. The theory of faith is one that you must continually observe in order to make it work throughout your life.
