Faith to Move Forward

March 13, 2015

By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised. Hebrews 11:11

God’s Timing. The devil tries to make you feel a day late and a dollar short. But God has called you to an effective, fruitful life, and He will bring it to pass. In the Bible, Sarah received the ability to conceive even though she was too old. Right before Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, He was told He should’ve come earlier (John 11:21). So don’t stay stuck on what you could’ve or should’ve done. Trust God. He knows how to take stubborn doors and bust them wide open!

By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3

Rugged Faith. Faith takes the promises of God seriously and rests in God’s power. Approach this life of faith with gritty determination, knowing that though you encounter challenges, God will deliver you out of them all (Psalm 34:19). Find God’s promises in the Bible corresponding to the issues of your life and let them anchor you—having done all to stand, keep standing (Ephesians 6:13).

Daily Confession
I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). God has blessed me. He is leading and guiding me by the Holy Spirit. He opens a door no one can shut (Revelation 3:8). God’s plan is coming to pass in my life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

tim·ing, noun
The ability to select the precise moment for doing something for optimum effect.

God bless you,
Pastor Jeff
