Trust and Have Faith In God
 
Hello everyone, so glad to have you here! This year is the year for new beginnings and I am anxious to see God at work and performing what His word says it will.
God's word gets in your heart and produces faith. Faith is a law,you will see.
 In Romans 3:10

 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:

 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

 17 And the way of peace have they not known:

 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

 Many people will take verse 10 and say no man is righteous! But they are not reading the total content of the teaching given in this chapter. For God gave His Son that we might become the righteousness of God thru Christ Jesus.
 
We are no longer under the law, we are New Testament believers. Let's look on  to verse 19

 19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

 30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

FAITH is the law we are under.So we have established in verse 27 that faith is the new law.

Without faith it is impossible to please God.Faith comes by hearing,  the word of God. Faith works in the heart,with the heart man believeth and faith is believing that God will do what His word says. No man can have faith through his carnal mind,as for as God's word goes.It's important to get this word in your heart .You got to not only hear it, and read it but for it to get in your heart deeply rooted you must speak it, until your mind is renewed and no doubting God's word will arise up in you. It's first in your mouth,and as you speak it and proclaim it your faith will grow daily that you will be able to establish what it says. Do you want peace in your life,do you want to know that God's grace is sufficient? Let's look at Rom. 5:1-2

 1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

These scriptures should cause your faith to rise while reading or hearing them. As it is written, it takes faith to get into the grace of God.

The power is in the spirit of the mind.We must continually renew our minds,for unless you have the word deeply rooted the enemy will steal it from you when the first trial comes your way.Jesus is the WORD.John1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
We have to speak the word out, it has life and power in it.Everything is created and brought to life by words. The devil waits as anxious for our negative words based on fear to use them against us as much as God waits for our prayers to be sent up.There's curses out there, God didn't send them, they came by way of satan.Just like sickness and disease is a fact in this world,it is also a fact that God can change facts.We can overcome curses with faith by confession of God's word. Rev. 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Paul said, out of the good deposit of a man's heart he bringeth forth good things. For out of the abundance of a man's heart he speaks.So if you feed on the word and confess it, it will be the good news that comes out in good and bad times.Rom.12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.So we must daily feed on God's word to be able to overcome and have the faith to battle the forces of evil sent our way.
Just like an airplane,you know it weighs tons,even without passengers and their luggage.
Now the law of gravity says anything tossed up in the air, with weight will fall to the ground. But an air pilot knows if you get that airplane up to a certain speed on the ground that the power will kick in and it will fly like a bird, totally defying the law of gravity.Now that pilot continues to have faith as he is flying it upward and climbing.This was done by the beginning air circulation that went over and under the wingsThe scripture comes to my mind of Isa. 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
 
As you know as we get older we must have the faith to do even the smallest task. I often say to the Lord, not my strength but yours. Just picture yourself sitting at the end of a runwayand you're facing problems in life,it looks like it's gonna take a miracle to soar above,but the word of God gives all the answers and it is wrapped up in one word "FAITH"
Mark 11 :23-24

 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

As Jesus said in Mark 11:22 Jesus answered saying to them; Have faith in God.
 
Like the wing on an airplanecreates the lift for that plane,our faith is is created by the confession of God's word to cause you to receive the manifestations of the promises of God. The word will work if you work it.You can't pray for one thing and then speak negative not believing in what you prayed for, because that will create doubt against what you just prayed for and will cancel out your prayer to be answered.Remember, the word says if you speak it out, believe to receive and Do Not Doubt, it shall be given unto you. God's word, produces the faith to receive what you are praying for if it is lined up with the word of God.
Like that airplane sitting on the runway it will go nowhere without giving it thrust to get power to pick up speed for the lift of the wing to put it into flight. The word of God is to faith, what thrust is to that airplane.If you confess the word of God,hearing it from your own voice, over and over daily it will produce God's promises in your life. Words in faith gives power to change things. Here's a major one to confess and know what faith is. Heb.11:1 -3 But you can read all Heb. 11 the faith chapter  to see all the saints of old that trusted in God. Perhaps this week you can look at it.

 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

 Is your faith building higher? There it goes....flying high,Hallelujah!!
God bless you all and my prayer to all today that you will camp out on faith scriptures.
A week later I open this email below from Kenneth Copeland


Jan 12 ,2008- Our Only Hope is Jesus

"Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption."
(Acts 2:26-27)

 Dear Linda,

Twenty-one years ago, God said something to me that will mark my ministry forever. The only hope that any man has anywhere in the world is faith in Jesus Christ.

In light of what's happening around us today, the truth of the statement is more painfully obvious than ever before. We are a generation with diseases no man can heal, with problems no man can solve. What fleeting successes we have are quickly overshadowed by new and greater crises.

All too often, that's as true for believers as it is for unbelievers. It shouldn't be. But it is. Believers are being killed by the same diseases that are devastating the rest of the world. They're being plagued by the same problems. And many are walking around without hope--just like the rest of the world.

Why? Because the only hope that any man has is faith in Jesus Christ. And the majority of Christians don't know how to live by faith.

Instead of being filled with the Word and with faith, they've been stuffed full of religious tradition and superstition. And they're suffering. When the devil hits them with sickness and disease, with poverty or depression or divorce, they often stand by helplessly as it destroys them. They simply don't know what else to do. The Bible says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." (Hos. 4:6).

But you know. Your hope is in Jesus. Trust Him. And tell the world--their hope is in Him too.
