SUPERNATURAL FAITH

WHY DO WE WANT THIS FAITH?

FAITH IS… (BASED ON HEBREWS 11:1-13)

  1. SUPERNATURALLY GIVEN – NOT SELF-GENERATED – A CONNECTION TO OUR CREATOR (Rom.1:20)
  2. ABLE WAS DRIVEN TO PLEASE GOD – BY FAITH, HE KNEW HOW – FAITH HELPS US TOO (Heb.11:4)
  3. ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD – BY FAITH HE DREW CLOSE – GOD’S PRESENCE COMES IN FAITH (Jas.4:8)
  4. NOAH ESCAPED JUDGMENT – BY FAITH HE FOUND GRACE – SAVED FROM SIN’S CONSEQUENCE (Eph.2:8-9)
  5. ABRAHAM PROSPERED AFTER HE OBEYED – WITH FAITH HE HAD SUCCESS– FAITH PROVIDES (Mt.21:22) 

SO, THIS IS A FREE GIFT WE GET FROM JESUS (1 CORINTHIANS 13:13 = AN ENDURING GIFT) AND THEREFORE WE CAN ASK FOR IT – WITH IT COMES THE ABILITY TO COMMUNE WITH HIM, PLEASE HIM, RECEIVE HIS FAVOR AND SUPERNATURAL PROSPERITY.   

WHERE DO WE GET THE FAITH WE NEED???

  1. FAITH COMETH BY HEARING AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD (Romans 10:17) = HEAR GOD’S WORD
  2. FAITH IS A GIFT FROM THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST – THE HOLY SPIRIT (1 Corinthians 13:13) = ASK/PRAY
  3. FAITH IS ACTION = TAKE MEASURED STEPS OF FAITH (James 2:17)
