All Christians are part of the great faith church since all must receive the gift of salvation through faith. [Eph. 2:8-9] Everything that God has ever offered to human beings must be received from Him by faith. Not only that, but, in order to live for Christ, the very manner of our life must be one that is of faith. [Hab. 2:4, Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38, 2 Cor. 5:7].
In this week’s issue of my MID WEEK FAITH BOOSTER, I feel moved to talk about problems and negatives and how Christians, people of faith, should deal with them.
If you are living and breathing on this earth - no matter who you are - rich or poor, tall or short, big or small, young or old, male or female. No matter where you were born, it makes no difference - you are going to have problems and trouble come your way! Yes; no matter what you have been told, faith people have trouble and problems to deal with just like every one else; maybe even more so since the devil is trying desperately to stop them from doing the will of God on the earth. There is one thing that you can count on for sure: if you walk by faith, problems are going to come your way. The wonderful thing that I am so joyful about telling you today is. You don't have to let the problems and negative circumstances of life dictate your destiny!
Jesus said in John 16.33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Walking by faith in the Word of God is the most REAL way to live. God's Word is the ultimate in REALITY. It goes beyond the sense realm - beyond that which we can see or feel. God's Word goes far beyond the realm of the emotions and logic. We who live by faith are learning to live in dependency upon the author the Bible and to simply go by what He has already said. It does not matter that the circumstances are contrary because God's Word always remains the same.
1 Cor. 15:57 AMP But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The man who wrote this epistle, the apostle Paul, knew what it meant to experience great problems. Paul was one of the greatest men of faith that has walked the earth, yet we know as he served God he faced many tough problems and circumstances in his life. But, this is what I want you to get hold of here he did not let those problems and trials keep him from victory! He had learned to live from the spirit realm.
You can experience victory no matter what has happened in your past. Even if you are presently down under problems and negative circumstances - God will give you victory!
1 John 5.4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
If you are born of God, you are BORN TO OVER COME! YOU ARE BORN TO WIN! Hallelujah! Through faith in God YOU CAN CANCEL OUT THE NEGATIVES!
What do I mean when I say cancel out he negatives?
I am talking about the negatives of this old negative world and the negatives of that old negative, doubt filled devil that have been coming against you! You can cancel them out in Christ!
Now you may say: But how do I cancel out the negatives, brother Norm? Well, for starters you just begin to refuse to let them control your life anymore.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Have you had it with being worried, defeated, and depressed?
Are you fed up with being under the barrel or down in a hole?
Do you really want peace in the midst of the storm?
That is where you start! When you have had enough of living in the negative there is hope for you. Do you REALLY want change?
You must start saying what God says in His Word about you, because your words have power for good or for the negative. They can bless or they can curse. They can heal or they can make sick. It’s all you choice what you are going to say.
Deut 30.19 I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life that you and your seed may live.
All is your choice what do you want in your life? Your life can turn around in a few short days or weeks if you do it God’s way, you’ll find it’s the best way to live.
