II Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith and not by sight." Habakkuk 2:4 "The just shall live by faith." As my church people know, I love to teach on the subject of faith. Maybe it is because without it, you cannot be pleasing to God. I want to encourage you to start somewhere in using faith in His Word. A mile walk begins with the first step. You faith is not in your ability, it is in His ability. Its not just a good idea that you have come up with. It is based on what His Word has said. Faith is simply believing God will do, what He said in His Word. Obviously, you have to know what His Word says concerning you. Start today, use your faith for something. I know it will cause rewards in your life. Thank you Father for showing us a way that is always pleasing to you. You said that you will reward our putting faith, trust and confidence in you. We do that beginning today. We will make it our way of life and live by it each day. P Lloyd

Wednesday Weapon 9.21.11

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ that gives me the strength.

God's Word never gives us reason to fail.It always gives us information that will cause us to triumph, and to overcome anything and everything. Life throws things at us that can look like certain defeat.Then we get into the Word, and find all kind of weapons at our disposal. It gives us the instructions to overcome.

Winning has a lot to do with attitude. God's Word will always bring forth a winning attitude once you read it with faith and believe it. Faith always comes through hearing or seeing what the Word says. Once you step out in that faith, declaring the Word over your life, you are setting yourself up for victory! Somebody is going to get victory, it might as well be you!

Thank you Father that Your Word always brings us victory. We trust Your Word. We declare it over the things that try and rise up against us. We truly believe that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. Thank you that we can do all things through Christ, that gives us strength.

Wednesday Weapon 9.7.11

James 5:16...the effective fervent prayer avails much.

Last week I talked about, ”Praying With Power“. Prayer is a powerful force when done correctly. When you pray according to the Word, it has to be correct. Victory can come from the inside out. A fervent, heart felt prayer, comes from within. An inside revelation creates an outside manifestation. Suddenly the Word on the inside becomes bigger than the problem on the outside. When this happens, you can know that victory is already yours. You don’t have to see change to know things are about to change. Thank God for the privilege and the power of prayer.

Thank you Father for the power that is available to me as a Believer when I pray. Even when weapons form against me, they cannot prosper. You said that heart felt prayers are effective and powerful. Thank you that I can know inside, even before I see it on the outside. Truly, greater is He that is in me, than he who is in the world.
