SPEAK TO THE MOUNTAINS: FAITH WINS!


Psalm 33:6-9 The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. 7 He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. 8 Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him. 9 For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command. 


Isaiah 46:9b-10 “…for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’ “. 


Jeremiah 32:17 ‘Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.


Jeremiah 32:27 “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?


Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the people of old received their commendation. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. 


Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”


Matthew 17:20 (ESV) “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”


FAITH DETERMINES WHAT GOD, IN CHRIST,THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN DO IN MY LIFE.


Matthew 9:29"According to your faith, it will be done unto you." 


Faith is the key that unlocks the promises of God.  


FAITH CAN SOLVE IMPOSSIBLE PROBLEMS.

FAITH IS THE BASIS OF ANSWERED PRAYER.

FAITH IS THE SECRET TO CONFIDENCE AND ACHIEVEMENT.


Warner von Braun: "There has never been a single great achievement in history without faith." It's the secret to achievement.  


FAITH IS THE FOUNDATION FOR MIRACLES.

FAITH IS THE WAY TO PLEASE GOD.

FAITH PRODUCES SUCCESS IN LIVING.


1 John 5:4 "The victory that overcomes the world is our faith."


Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” 


William Barclay: “faith is a hope that is absolutely certain that what it believes is true and that what it expects will come. It is not the hope which looks forward with wishful longing; it is the hope which looks forward with utter conviction.”


FAITH IS STRETCHING MY IMAGINATION.


Ephesians 3:20 "God is able to do more than that you think or imagine."  


Faith always begins with a picture, a mental image, a dream, a vision, an idea. 


Faith is visualizing the future in the present. 


FAITH IS TAKING THE INITIATIVE.


Faith is deciding to begin. It's committing yourself to action.  


Faith is the antidote to procrastination.  


FAITH IS RISKING A FAILURE.


There is no faith without risk.  


2 Corinthians 5:7 "We walk by faith, not by sight."  


Faith is letting go of your security.  


FAITH IS EXPECTING THE BEST.


Faith is positive expectation.  


We tend to see what we expect to see. We hear what we expect to hear. We act the way we expect to act. We feel the way we expect to feel.  


FAITH IS WAITING FOR THE ANSWER.


Psalm 40:1-3 “I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. 3 He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.”


God's timing is perfect!  


FAITH IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS


Hebrews 11:8 "By faith, Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going."  


Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord and don't lean on your own understanding."  


FAITH IS BEING PERSISTENT.


Faith is keeping on keeping on. Faith is never giving up. Faith is continuing to persevere. 

 

FAITH IS GETTING BACK UP WHEN FAILURE KNOCKS YOU DOWN.


2 Corinthians 4:9 (TLB)” We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.”


A successful person is a person who got up from the failure and went on.  


Isaiah 43:18 "God says, `Forget the former things. Do not dwell on the past. See! I'm doing a new thing. Now it springs up. Do you not perceive it? I'm making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”  


Faith can do anything God can do.
