Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:34.
Dearly Beloved in Christ,
May the peace of Christ Jesus our Lord be with you!
Just a reminder that September 29, 2019 is our next fellowship together, so be sure to come and enjoy time with the one thing necessary– to listen to His Word and be caught up in His Love.
Faith is a wonderful thing. It connects us with God to receive from Him all that He has promised. To operate in faith, we must understand what faith does. Our faith does not make God do something. He has already done it for us in Christ. It does not make Him give us something He is otherwise withholding from us. He has already freely given us all things in Christ. Romans 8:32; 2 Corinthians 3:21-23; James 1:17. All His magnificent promises are “yes” to you in Jesus. 2 Corinthians 1:20. And He has already made Christ to be wisdom for you, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30. The Father has blessed you already with every spiritual blessing in Heaven, Ephesians 1:3, and He has given you all you need and abundantly more for life and godliness in Christ. 2 Peter 1:2-4. He has met all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus, Philippians 4:19, and He has made you a partaker of His divine nature. 2 Peter 1:2. Grace has made everything available to you already and grace and truth come to you in Jesus. John 1:17.
So what does faith do? Your faith in what God has done opens your heart to take and receive it. He has made you partakers of His divine life, but you must partake. And faith makes you a partaker. Faith is the conductor that connects God’s power into your life and being. Your faith makes you a receptor of all the greatness of the glory of your inheritance in Christ. You receive according to your faith, not because of your faith, but according to your faith. Christ dwells in your heart by faith.
When you have a problem, God already has given you a solution, but you have to use your faith to pull down that solution to manifest in your life. Jeremiah 33:3. Faith is the way you connect with the Father. You cannot please Him without faith for you cannot come to God with confidence and receive unless you believe that He is and that He rewards those who seek Him with good things. Hebrews 11:6. Faith begins where the Will of God is known, for that gives substance to your hope and evidence of what you do not see to your heart. Hebrews 11:1. Faith gives you a new vision of reality and it brings God’s power into the picture. With the vision God has put in your heart, He gives provision. You are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus, for good works (a fruitful life, being blessed and being a blessing) prepared for you in advance (all provided for) that you might walk them out. Ephesians 2:10.
You are not searching for the Lord and begging Him to hear you, the Father raised you up with Jesus and sat you at His right hand with Him in Heaven. Ephesians 2:6. He did not leave you orphans, He has baptized you in the Holy Spirit and fire, and the Spirit of Sonship is in you, witnessing with your spirit that you are one with God, His children joined forever as His family with His Name given to you. Ephesians 3:14-15. And His Name is a strong tower, Proverbs 18:10, and faith in His Name releases all that He is into your life and into the world for those whose lives you touch, those far and near, for prayer reaches everywhere without limits. Cast your cares upon Him because He cares for you. Give everything over to Him in prayer, with thanksgiving, and then do whatever He tells you. Papa taking care.
Faith is a rest. If you are in faith and your faith is working, you are not worried or harried. You are not confused. You are not fearful. You know that God is with you and that He is taking care of you. You know and believe in the LOVE He has for you. You know that all His magnificent promises are yours because you are in Christ Jesus. When He gave you Jesus, He gave you everything good with Him.
Rest in what God has said to you in the Bible, abide in His Word and let His Word abide in you, remain in His love and be consumed with it as the driving force of your life, then you will ask what you will and it will be done for you. John 15:7; 1 John 5:14-15. It will no longer be mere information, but revelation and manifestation!
And remember that it has pleased (delighted) God to give you the Kingdom! Jesus preached the Gospel of the Kingdom. So come to the next meeting to find out what the Kingdom is and how you change from the world system to the Kingdom system to govern your life right now! God has transferred you from the domain of darkness to the Kingdom of His dearly beloved Son. But are you trying to live the Kingdom promises operating under the laws of the world system? You cannot serve two masters. Which system are you operating in? If you are still of a survival mentality and you are living in anxiety and lack, you may have changed jurisdictions when you received Jesus as Lord, but you did not change systems. Come learn how to stop working for things like a slave to your needs and take the dominion Christ died to give you so that things are working for you in an abundance of provision for your vision.
Be BLESSED because in Christ Jesus you already are. Receive it by faith.
Love and Shalom, שלום
