10 WAYS OF HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME WITH YOUR FAITH.
1.You are never going to enjoy living in faith , without peace .your peace is a sign of trust in the midst of your storms .It might be raging hard , but you still choose to "trust" Him. Isaiah 26:3(NLT)"You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!"
2. Joy - is what gives your faith life . without keeping your joy , faith becomes a struggle . Why? your joy gives birth to your expectations .Isa 12:3 (NIV)"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation."
3.prayer - praying without the word is boring . the word gives your prayer life true excitement . Why ? His joy in your spirit tells you it is done . john 15:7 (NIV)"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you."
4. Keep the truth in your heart always . When the enemy comes to attack , it is what is inside that comes out . the "TRUTH" Isaiah 59:19"So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him."
5.This one is my key - Whenever God quickens His word in your spirit , don't be lazy, check it out , don't do it later . use your phone , ipad , bible , God is talking , check it now ...hmmm, it doesn't build your faith , it "jumps" your faith with joy !! Amen. lol. John 16:14(ESV)"He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you."
6.Just thanking Him , that you are alive, that He is a good God . ahh , helps your faith alot and He speaks when you appreciate Him for life .Eph 5:20 (NIV)"always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
7.Always see your miracle . No matter what , see what God is showing you and keep your focus on it .What you see is important to God . Jer 1:11(NIV)"The word of the LORD came to me: "What do you see, Jeremiah?" "I see the branch of an almond tree," I replied."
8.Imagination - imagine your children , imagine yourself in that house , imagine your healing . Hear what God said about our imagination . Gen 11:6 "And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." it is possible if you can imagine it .
9. Sin will stop you from having a wonderful time , with your faith . stay off it. why? sin always bring guilt and condemnation . Gal 5:19 (NLT)"When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,
10.Fasting - brings that freshness into your faith .Isaiah 58:6(NIV)"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the hains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?"
PRAYER : Father teach me how to work my faith with your pleasure in Jesus name , Amen.
You will succeed in Jesus name , Amen.
