In this week’s message, Pastor John Carter taught that there are some things that you need to make sure you are walking in in your daily actions and decisions. And one of those things is faith. The Bible says that you must learn to walk by faith, a supernatural state of being.
Faith works beyond sight. You cannot walk by faith, if you chose to rely only on your sight. Faith sees beyond what you can see with your natural eyes. When it comes to walking with God, you cannot rely on your five senses, not in the same way. In fact, they can be a hinderance to you if you rely too heavily upon them to inform you.
Faith is a living, supernatural force and it creates a vibrancy that lives on you. Those who walk by faith carry an aura that is attractional to God, noticeable to men, and offensive to the devil. Faith is the starting point of the Christian life. For it is by grace you have been saved through faith (Eph. 2:8). Faith is the primary way to please God, because faith is a living trust in God and in His power to work in your life.
Faith knows the truth that God wants to do something for you because He loves you. But it is what you really believe, according to the level of your faith, that will determine how much of God’s blessing you will actually experience in your life. You have to lift up your faith level to experience more.
- [2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV] 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
- [Hebrews 11:6 NKJV] 6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [Him], for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and [that] He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
1. What does faith mean to you? What does it look like to you?
2. Why do you think we need to walk by faith?
3. What does our faith communicate to the people around us, to the world we interact with?
4. How does faith please God?
5. How can faith change your life?
This week as you study the key scriptures, consider what Pastor John said, “It is only those things in our lives that we do that are fueled by faith that are noticed by God and please Him.” This week, examine your life. Have you applied your faith to the areas of your life? Have you applied faith to your finances?
To your relationships? To your education? To your family? To your health? To your love walk? To the words fo your mouth? Are you actively believing for God to do something awesome in your life? God wants you to have living, powerful, mountain-moving faith.
The challenge for this week is to begin to apply strong, living faith to all the areas of your life that need change. Because things won’t change until you believe – absolutely believe – that God wants to do something great in your life! Speak God’s word over your life, and begin to fill your mouth with faith! It’s time to level up your faith walk.
