We continue on this topic of Faith, building a foundation of understanding. Your Faith, your trusting in someone is more effective once you get to know their character and nature. When we come to know the Lord more, and we see His heart for His creation, we can be more effective ministers of the Gospel. That is because our faith, our trust will contain no doubt, unbelief or fear when we are believing for something.
Extinguishing Doubt and Unbelief Allows Your Faith to Move Mountains (184) – March 11 2023
It’s a lot easier to trust in someone once you get to know them. Trusting in the Lord allows our Faith to be used more effectively, simply because once you know the Lord’s nature and character, you realize there is no reason to doubt what He has promised us. When doubt, unbelief and fear have all been removed, all that is left is pure Faith. That’s when the mountains you’re speaking to begin to move!
We Are Led by What Gets Fed (183) – March 4 2023
We focus on how our walk with the Lord, or our walk without Him, can dictate where we are led. We follow one of two masters every hour. We cannot serve both at the same time, but that doesn’t mean that our flesh doesn’t try to pull us into alternating between them.
Not Accepting Jesus as Your Lord is Rejecting Him (182) – February 25 2023
The Lord loves you, whether you love him or reject him. He doesn’t favor one person over another since scripture says he’s no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). There are ramifications in our daily lives, and ultimately our destiny, however, depending on whether we receive and confess Jesus as our Lord or keep on rejecting Him.
Only Keep On Believing (181) – February 18 2023
Simply put, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue [Jairus], Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.
We cover several small topics this week, including being free of sin and shame. That is, as long as we are walking according to the dictates of the Spirit and not our flesh.
The Longsuffering of the Father’s Heart (180) – February 11 2023
Against the backdrop of topics covered in recent weeks on God’s Grace, Mercy, Faith and Rest, we continue this journey of understanding the importance of knowing the Father and the Son. One of the ways is to see God’s nature and character in action in His Word. In this program we look at the Father’s heart in several situations and how His longsuffering continues with us to this day.
What Is The Rest Of God? What Do I Need To Do To Enter It? (179) – February 4 2023
In recent weeks we have been understanding some of the promises of God, as well as His nature and character, in order that we may realize how we can easily trust Him because He is faithful and has kind intentions in His heart. We have been talking about God’s grace, our undeserved favor from God, and his mercy, His punishment withheld from us. Today having this trust and faith in God that He is good, that He does not want to harm us but only love us and grow us, we look at the blessing and promise of His Rest.
Having Anxious Thoughts? They Cause Your Days to be Made Evil (178) – January 28 2023
This week we focus on guarding our hearts and minds, so that what we think, believe and ponder on remains fixed on that which lines up with the very Word of the Living God Almighty. Else, we permit evil circumstances to come against us each day, regardless of our knowledge or ignorance of these principles. Worse, we question or even blame our Heavenly Father on how he could have allowed us to have such a bad day!
The Father: Withholding Deserved Punishment; Releasing Undeserved Favor (Part 2) (177) – January 21 2023
To understand the rest of God, we have to first take hold of some of the blessings stemming from God’s love and His grace (undeserved favor) for us.
The Father: Withholding Deserved Punishment; Releasing Undeserved Favor (176) – January 14 2023
This week we look at God’s Grace. God is love, and so it is the love of the Great Jehovah for His creation, that reveals itself through His grace (undeserved favor) and mercy (withholding of deserved punishment). All of humanity gets to choose whether to love God in return, receive the undeserved free gift of salvation.
