 The A-B-C's Of Faith
"Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)

1.Asking of Faith "But let him ask in faith,nothing wavering. (James 1:6)

   A. Many fail to receive from God simply because they do not ask.    (Matthew 7:7)

   B.We are to ask in childlike faith. Just (like) as earthly parents want to give good gifts to their children, so our Heavenly Father desires to do the same for His Children. (Matthew 7:11)

   C.Children are persistent,with a child's persistent we must keep on asking our heavenly Father. (Matthew 7:8)

2.Believing of Faith"Believe that you receive them,& you shall have them."(Mark 11:24)
    A.Some have difficulty believing. Their doubts cause them to live a defeated life.

    B.Everyone is tempted to doubt at times, but we must keep on believing in spite  of doubts. We defeat Satan by believing that we believe.

    C.Everything is possible for those who believe. (Matthew 9:28,29)

   Faith pleases God & brings His blessings. (Romans 10:10)
     A.Some people are ashamed to be called Christians. They are fearful of scorn & persecutions.
   B.We must be courageous about confessing our faith in Jesus Christ. If we are ashamed of Him,He will be ashamed of us also. We must be willing to share Christ with others. (Romans1:16)

    4.Doing of faith "...faith without works is dead". (James 2:20)

   A.Doing is the "plus"of faith. Many falter in the Christian life because they fail to act up on or work their faith.

   B.We must let the Holy Spirit work through us. We are His channel, the instrument He will work through us.

   C.We must believe that the Holy Spirit is directing & guiding our steps. He speaks through us as we witness to the unsaved. (John 15:5)

    Romans 12:3-God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
   Romans 12:3-we all start out with the same amount of faith. What can you trust God for at this point in your life, can you believe God for something small or something very large.

    John 6:63-Flesh needs the spirit to life, the spirit doesn't need the flesh to live. Jesus speaks to the spirit,& when your spirit hears from God your flesh will profit, the flesh is not the man, the man is the spirit, the life of the flesh is in the blood (Lev.17:11).

                                                                      [FAITH IS]
   Faith is the acceptance of a fact  which already exists but which has not yet been manifested to the senses.

    Believing that something is true which is not true will never make it true.

    You must turn on the power that is inside you as a believer, resurrection power, flowing into your body & banishing symptoms of disease.
