Step 1. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
First, you’ve got to have faith.
This is all so simple. We have to understand what faith is at all times! Faith is believing God for what we hope for and sure that even though we can’t see it…that it will happen. We trust God, that He is faithful…on His time table; not ours. God comes through over and over again, and there’s no reason for God to quit on you now. He always comes through. We hear it over and over again that God inhabits our praises…so when you want God’s presence…Praise! It won’t be easy sometimes starting, but I assure you it will get better and better!
DON’T FORGET STEP ONE!
Step 2. Without faith it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6)
Second, you’ve got to have faith.
Many people want to see manifestation of prayers from God but they don’t trust God enough to have faith or stand in faith. Faith believes ” WAY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT!” Think about the jury that says that someone is innocent and that they’ve given them the benefit of the doubt. In fact, they are sure that they’ve bent over backwards to be fair. Well, with faith…you don’t have to bend over…you just have to believe…you’re always innocent…Jesus redeemed you…be confident…you have the Victory!
DON’T FORGET STEP 2
Step 3. The righteous will live by faith. (Habbakuk 2:4)
Third, you live by faith!
I hear it all the time: “She thinks she’s so high and mighty because she goes to church!
“I don’t like faith people.”
“They act like they’re so righteous at that church.”
“Why is that man so self righteous?”
You’ve probably heard this too. It’s a gross miscarriage of the word righteous; taken out of the bible and interpreted by the world.
Righteous only means “right standing” with God. It can’t be earned by being in a certain Sun day School for twenty years and never missing. It can’t happen because of anything that you’ve done. The bible says our righteousness is as filthy rags. We are made righteous by Jesus Christ. Righteousness is a free gift. You can’t earn it. IF you’ve accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior; then you are the righteous.
The righteous shall live by faith.
The righteous have sooooo many benefits! This is good news. I guarantee you that if you do a study of Scriptures on Righteousness….your faith will rise and take over! Hallelujah!
