WE MUST USE OUR FAITH -To obtain God’s promises, win the pri

Postby Inspired2write » Tue Jan 07, 2014 10:22 am

Our times are in God’s hands
Our lives are in God’s hands
Fear not children of God
Jesus has overcome this world
We can experience and maintain victory through our faith
Faith is the key
However, we must add to our faith virtue, knowledge, self control
Perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love
As we begin a new season, another leg of the journey of life in 2014
We must remember that we are in a race
Hear the voice of the Apostle Paul as it echoes admonishing us to run with patience the race set before us
We must be motivated by God’s Word and His Spirit
We must be focused
Like Paul we must place our eyes on the prize set before us
The prize is Christ Jesus

This race requires endurance
There are rivers to cross
Mountains to climb
Obstacles to face
We need to have confidence and peace
Strength and discernment
We must be disciplined
We must encourage others and encourage ourselves in the Lord
To keep on running in spite of and despite the odds of life

Now is the time to:
Strengthen those weary hands and feet
Gird up the loins of our minds
Extend mercy and lift up those who stumbled and fell down
Bear the burdens of the weak
Help others to run


Now is the time to:
Examine our lives and walk (relationship) with our God
What are those things that slows us down in this race
Those besetting sins, bad habits and paralyzing fear
The lack of joy, this can sap our strength

Many of us were running well until we were hindered
Our faith was challenged
Mountains seemed like they would never move
The wilderness experience seemed as though it would never end
Goliaths intimidated us and we became fearful


Now is the time to:
Let faith arise in us
Speak to those mountains again
Our God, the Almighty Yahweh will cause us to leap over obstacles

Now is the time to:
Let faith arise in us
Our God, the Almighty Yahweh will cause springs to arise in the desert for us

When we feel weak and become fearful, we must
Let faith arise in us
Our God, the Almighty Yahweh will strengthen us by His Spirit

Now is the time let faith arise in us
Faith is necessary
We need faith to walk and stand
We need faith to enter into God’s rest
We need faith to fight the giants in our promise land
We need faith to inherit God’s promises
We need faith to endure trials and tests
Above all else take the shield of faith
LIFT IT UP daily and quench the fiery darts of the enemy
Faith lays hold and obtains

Forgetting failures, set backs, disappointments, successes, hurts and pains
We must
Press forward in prayer
Press forward to fulfill God’s purposes
Press forward to obtain the promises
Press forward through the ups and downs of life
Brethren, we are the apple of God’s eye
Let us admonish each other
Like Paul to finish the race, keep the faith
Lay hold on eternal life
Remember it is not by might or by power but by the Spirit of the Lord that the work is done
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
Let us run, lay hold and obtain God’s promises and His provision in faith, by faith and through faith
Faith is the key
Faith comes by hearing the Word of God
Brethren, let us keep running this race in faith

This is beautifully written an fills me with an even stronger faith than before I read it. Very inspirational piece. :thumbs

It is indeed time for faith to arise in us and speak to those mountains! :clap

Thanks so much for sharing. :D
God Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from the storms.
Children are our tomorrow
Keep them daily from the sorrow
Of the beasts in life
