Faith



There are many types of problems within our families. But the Word addresses them all. Whatever the problem, whatever the need, no matter how great the stress or distress, God has the solution in His Word. His Word is complete. All we as Christians have to do is believe what God's Word says and act on it in faith. Sometimes when our problems arise we forget to pray and or use the Word of God to fight our fight. Amen!!!!

For example, if you have a child who has turned away from a godly life, then believe God's Word where it says in Proverbs 11:21, "The children of the righteous will be delivered." Take that scripture, read it, meditate on it, and act on it in faith without fear. It is true; the children of the righteous will be delivered. I have prayed this over my Step Son, and it works, yes it works. I have seen his my-space go from bloody skulls to a more professional look, He took those awful earrings out of his ears that stretch is lobe, ewww, I have watched him change dramatically.




From the beginning, Satan has deceived mankind. Second Corinthians 11:3 says that in the Garden of Eden, Eve was deceived by the serpent because of Satan’s craftiness. In other words, he was cunning, deceptive and he was a liar.

Jesus said in John 8:44 that Satan is a liar and that there is no truth in him. Today, Satan has not changed and his methods are still the same. When we take the scriptures and stand on them in faith, Satan immediately tries to twist and distort the Word in such a way that it will become ineffective in our lives.

When we say, "The Word says the children of the righteous will be delivered, and I believe it and stand on it in faith," Satan immediately says, "That's right. The Word is true. The children of the righteous will be delivered. But you're not righteous. Remember when you...." And so Satan sows his lie. What he says sounds logical, but it is still a lie.

The truth is, we who have accepted Jesus as there Lord and Savior are righteous. We are not righteous because of anything we have done but because of what He has done. The blood of Jesus removes our sins and we are clean.
It's grace.
It's unmerited favor.
It's a gift of God.

Galatians 2:21 says, “If righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.” We cannot do anything to become righteous other than just simply accept Jesus into our hearts. Works will never be good enough.

If Satan can get us to believe we are not righteous, then when we take the Word that says "The children of the righteous will be delivered," we will not believe it applies to us. Without belief there is no faith. Without faith we will not expect results, and we will get what we expect. Nothing! We must believe the truth and act in faith. Then we will be delivered.

Proverbs 20:7 says that the children of the righteous will be blessed. So, not only will our children be delivered, but they will be blessed.

As Christian parents, we must believe what God’s Word says about our children. So, when Satan whispers into your thought realm and says your children will be destroyed, don’t repeat his words.
Remember, he’s a liar. You must do as Jesus did when Satan spoke to him.
Say, “It is written. The children of the righteous will be delivered.”

Remember, God does not lie. What He says He will do, He will do!!!!! What he says will happen, will happen!!!!!
If His Word says the children of the righteous will be delivered and blessed, then they will.
God is not a liar!!!!

Sharon great faith building post! What an encouraging word. You are such an inspiration. I so enjoy visiting your site and being build up and encouraged in the word.
Thank you for visiting-I responded to your comment.
We just finished praying for the persecuted church and again reminded how blessed we are to live in a country where we can openly discuss Jesus and His Word.
In His Love,
Debrah

Sharon-last march one of the churches(since April I attend this church) in our community opened up an opportunity for the community to come together for prayer...for our community there was a good attendance...they have not had one since June...Please keep this in prayer for our community and for christian churches throughout america...I will certainly keep you and your husband in prayer...I so agree we need to speak the truth and need Christian leaders who will teach us the truth and we all need to be teachable for whom the Father loves he corrects...how much do we love each other if we do not with love and compassion share the truth...Love and Compassion should certainly be partnered with the truth...thank you for being not only a person who willingly shares the truth but someone who does so because of Love for Jesus and His creation...I am praying to be more sensitive to the Holy Spirit and discern when to speak when to be quiet...
On another topic...I just heard that the Christians in Mosul need our prayers...

I'm praying for the same transformation of my beloved who is God's child.

How awesome to see your step son transformed before you eyes by his appearance and his myspace. It won't be long before his heart is truly transformed to the love of God.
Love,
Paula

Amen & Amen!

"You must do as Jesus did when Satan spoke to him.
Say, “It is written. The children of the righteous will be delivered.” "
This in vital too. When we speak the Truth out loud back to the enemy, he MUST flee.

"God is not a liar!!!!"
What more can be said. This was great.

Proverbs 22:6. I am the child of righteous parents. I know the benefit of raising children under God's authority and how He wants us to live - because I was the child who had backslidden and was living outside of the will of God. Prayers of a mother - are miraculous.

Your post is so true!

There is definitely power in the Word and repeating it aloud to ourselves. I believe in vocally rebuking the spirit of satan...telling him to back up and back away.

Praying God's Word is something I've learned through a Beth Moore study. I do believe there's power in praying scriptures.

Faith...it is hard but it's a rewarding road...just maybe not on this side of Heaven as much as we'd like to see.
Love,
Paula
