1-Faith is the access road to the promises of God. Without faith it’s impossible to please God as we read in Hebrews 11:6. Why is that? Because God is a faith God and everything He does, He does by faith. Since we are made in His image, we too are to do everything by faith in God and His Word.
Faith appropriates what God has already freely given to us. Many, if not most people, spend their prayer time begging God to do what He’s already done. How in the world can He even answer that kind of prayer? If we’re going to walk by faith and not by sight [II Corinthians 5:7], we’re going to have to believe and trust what God has said in His Word. That’s when we really start to see the supernatural operate in our lives.
2-The high cost of sin will take you further than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay. Oh how true this is! Anything contrary to the Word of God is sin.
Think of the high cost of strife. It will not only wreak havoc in your relationships, but it will have an adverse effect on you: spirit, soul, and body. It can even cause you to have evil thoughts that you would never have even considered before! This is the work of the enemy to get you off the Word of God and looking only at the natural, physical realm.
- The secret to getting ahead is getting started. Too many times we procrastinate doing what we know we should do because we’ve waited too long – like daily Bible reading. We know we should do it but where do we start and where do we go from there? The point is, if you never start, you’ll never get anywhere. Pray and ask the Lord where to start and He is more than willing to help you
