How Faith Works

“Understanding Faith
Romans 4:18-19
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall your descendants be.
19 AND BEING NOT WEAK IN FAITH, HE CONSIDERED NOT HIS OWN BODY AS NOW DEAD, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
+The Word of God said Abraham was not weak in faith which means he was strong in faith.
+What helped Abraham to be strong in faith was the fact that he didn’t consider his own body as now dead, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. +This means that they did not have the physical ability and the biological function to produce a baby with each other.
+So are we to learn from Abraham (the father of faith).
+To walk in strong faith we are never to consider the situation or the circumstance. That would be walking by sight.
+Faith foresees Victory in every situation, and Faith takes action, and action activates God’s Supernatural Miracle Working Power of God.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!”

“+Don’t Feel Condemned+

Romans 8:1

From A Newsletter

In an art gallery in Europe hangs a painting of a chess game titled Checkmate. On one side of the chessboard sits the devil, his face filled with laughter. His hand is poised, ready to make his next move. On the other side of the chessboard sits a shaking, frightened young man. Sweat covers his forehead, dripping down and mixing with a solitary tear on his cheek. It is obvious that not only is the game drawing to a close, but the winner appears to have already been determined.

One day, a chess champion from a far-off country visited the gallery. Naturally, this painting caught his attention, so he stood in front of it for a long time. He was especially focused on the image of the devil, who sat awaiting his next turn, in which he planned to steal this man’s soul.

He made another move, and countered it again, knowing that his opponent would have to defend himself in his next move as well. The chess champion did this several more times, putting the devil on the defensive each and every time. Eventually, a loud yell was heard throughout the gallery as the chess champion cried out in relief, “I did it! I did it! I did it!”

Minutes turned into hours as the chess champion studied the board from every possible angle. The sweat on the young man’s forehead urged him to continue. Finally, as the gallery was about to close, the chess champion found the curator of the gallery and asked him, “Sir, would you happen to have a chessboard here?”

After looking around in several of the offices, the curator located a chessboard and brought it to the chess champion, who laid the board out at the base of the painting precisely as it was in the picture itself. He made a move, and then countered that move in the only way that the devil could, thus preventing his opportunity to serve checkmate.

YOU HAVE A CHAMPION WHO KNOWS HOW TO GUIDE YOUR EVERY MOVE.

Turning to the painting, the chess champion lowered his voice and said, “Young man, your enemy miscalculated a very important move. I uncovered it, and as a result—you don’t have to lose! You win!”

What this chess champion had done was discover a way not only for the young man to escape checkmate, but actually to checkmate the devil himself.

Friend, I’m sure that sometimes you feel like the man in the painting. Fear and anxiety have crept up on you as you imagine the devil making the final move against you in your personal life, marriage, home, health, career, finances or in any number of arenas.

Satan’s confident laughter and swift moves have tricked you into thinking that he is running the show and calling the shots while he toys with your emotions like a puppet on a string.

But because of Christ, you can wipe the sweat from your forehead and dry the tears from your eyes. You have a Champion who knows how to guide your every move. In fact, this Champion has already made the final move on the devil, securing your victory forever. If you will simply play out the remainder of the game according to His directions and underneath the overarching rule of His kingdom agenda, you will claim your victory. That is guaranteed.

The great thing is that you don’t have to earn it nor do you have to figure it out for yourself. God has already given you everything that you need in order to make your next move on your path to victory. You are not fighting for victory—you are fighting from a place of victory. The final result has already been decided. This battle has already been won!

Good day everyone, greetings to you

How to Know when we are Walking in LOVE.
John 3:16
For God so Love the world He GAVE His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
+God is LOVE, and for God so LOVE the world He GAVE…
+We can GIVE without LOVE, but we cannot LOVE without GIVING.
1 John 3:17-18
17 But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother have NEED, and shuts up his HEART OF COMPASSION from him, how dwells the LOVE of God in him?
18 My little children, let us NOT LOVE in WORD, NEITHER in TONGUE; but in DEED and in TRUTH.
Amen


John 3:16 Amplified (AMP)

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

https://bible.com/bible/1588/jhn.3.16.AMP


For God so Love the world He GAVE His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
+How did God give His only begotten Son? Jesus was given (SACRIFICED) for our sin.
Sacrifice: doing something for the benefit of others, and at the expense or cost of yourself.
+LOVING others requires GIVING and SACRIFICE.
2 Samuel 24:24 King David said: I will not give offerings to the Lord my God of that which costs me nothing.
+The Giving that costs us something is greater in God’s sight than giving which cost you nothing.
+Sacrificial givings are highly commendable, valued and rewarding by God.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!”
