the only way to go

In our daily lives, we can operate either by faith or by sight. Of course, the Bible way is to operate in faith. In fact, the Bible goes so far as to state that if it is not of faith, then it is sin. Also, we are told that the just shall live by faith. This is not a suggestion, it is a command.There are some definite qualities about faith that reveal to us why...read more

contending for the faith

It is not uncommon for me to hear people say things like, “ Well, I don’t know what is going on, I was prayed for by so and so it just didn’t work, I am still sick, or I am still in debt, or I still don’t have a job.” They continue on in naming whatever the problem may have been. Many people think that just getting prayed for is walking in faith. They think...read more

the fear factor

The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testaments in several places that we, as Christians, are to live by faith.(Hab. 2:4, Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38) It goes on to tell us that anything which is not of faith is sin. Most Christians don’t realize that to not live by faith is sin. You see, God is very emphatic about this, our lives are to be characterized by faith. (Trusting dependence...read more

faithing it

The Christian life is a very special and unique life. We as Christians have the very special quality that lets us live by a new and powerful force. We can tap into the very storehouse of God who owns all the riches and blessings that there are in this world, the whole universe and beyond. This special ability is faith. In reality it means a trusting dependence on God, looking to Him and to Him...read more

commit and forget

Real faith takes time to develop. The more critical the issue, the more faith is exercised and the stronger the faith becomes. As a Christian, we are told that to live a life pleasing to God, our lives must be characterized by faith. Faith is to be the dominant principle in our life if we want a life that exemplifies Christianity and glorifies the Lord. This is why it is so important to start out...read more

thinking faith thoughts

The mind, will and emotions make up the soul of a person. The soul is the gate to the heart; knowledge in the soul comes before faith in the heart does. As a person fills his mind with the knowledge of God's Word, the Holy Spirit will write the Word upon the heart. When God's Word is engraved upon the heart, it creates faith in that Word. Your ability to have faith in God's Word...read more

faith and unbelief

People often ask me why it is that they can’t get healed, or get other people healed. They say that they know that the Bible teaches that we are to walk in health and healing. They know all the verses that tell us that healing is for today and that by the stripes of Jesus that we are healed.I believe that the answer to this lies in the same place with the answer to why...read more

you hold the title

I have heard people say that they own the car that they drive or the house that they live in. The truth is that when you dig a little deeper you find out that really the finance company or the bank really owns it. It may be true that the person is paying for the item, but they do not hold the title to it. In reality, the one who holds the title is the...read more

where is my miracle?

This seems to be one of the most asked questions these days in the body of Christ. So many people needing so many miracles, yet so many going without them. There has to be a reason for this. It is evident from the Bible that God is a miracle working God, that He is also unchanging and is not a respecter of persons. This being the case then there must be some other reason why...read more

the great rewarder

I don’t think that any of us have any doubt about the first part of this scripture being true. I have heard it quoted over and over. It is the battle cry of many of the believers in the faith movement of today.Yet, this is only a part of the real promise and blessing to us as believers. Notice that this verse says also that if we are going to get our needs met and...read more
