Some people are born with God-given musical talent. But without practice and intentional development of that talent, it won’t come to anything great. The same is true of faith.
We are BLESSED. The Bible is chock full of verses saying just that. Jesus paid the price for everything we could ever need or desire now and for eternity. Yet, so many Christians are crying out to God and acting like He hasn’t already provided for them.
When it comes to living in divine health, or anything else for that matter, there is a delicate balance between living by faith and putting feet to your faith (having works that match the faith).
God wants His people to receive everything He has promised, so knowing what He promised is vital! God’s will is always to prosper His people—He will never forget you nor forsake you. When it seems like there is nothing you can do—speak faith—speak victory.
The promises of God belong to you. Every minute of every day, as a child of God, you’re entitled to believe for them and to take possession of them. Maybe you know this, and with great joy, you move forward to take possession—only to find the enemy’s fiery darts flying toward you at every turn.
Faith is the doorway to abundance. It’s the key to unlimited treasure. Its laws of operation are sure, steadfast and as unchanging as Jesus Himself. The laws of faith apply to every area of life—spiritual, mental, physical, financial, relational and professional.
If you’ve been standing on the Word of God for finances, healing, a family relationship—or anything else—but haven’t seen a manifestation, there might be a very good reason. You see, the love of God is unconditional, but His promises are not.
If you’re ready to develop the kind of bulldog faith that bites down on the Word of God and won’t let go—you need determination! There is power in speaking the Word of God aloud over your life and confessing that you are determined in your pursuit of THE BLESSING of God.
You may not know it, but we’re at war. We’re in a spiritual battle—and we’re winning. But just like Israel had to rise up physically to take the land of Canaan, you and I have to rise up in the spirit if we're going to establish the dominion of God in the earth.
If you’ve ever taken a stand of faith for healing, finances, family or any other victory, you know you have a battle on your hands. The enemy knows we were created to triumph, but he has no intention of letting us get to victory without resisting us along the way.
Anyone who wants to know God—to walk closely with Him—must obey Him. There is no way that we can come into a close relationship with the Lord, walk fully in THE BLESSING, and enjoy the communion that our spirits desire without obeying Him.
In the 1960s, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland were deeply in debt, stretched thin, living from paycheck to hopeful paycheck.
During the three years of Jesus’ ministry, there was one thing that hindered His ability to work miracles more than anything else—unbelief. In Nazareth, for example, Jesus’ neighbors and childhood friends refused to accept Him.
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” –Romans 12:3, KJV
Do you ever wonder what God desires for your life? Do you want to know His perfect will for you? Do you want to know Him better so you can face your life and situations with confidence? Well, here are six truths that God wants you to know about Him and the way He operates on earth.
No matter how difficult your marriage may be right now, God can turn it around! Maybe financial troubles have taken their toll. Maybe moral boundaries have been crossed. Maybe poor communication has left you feeling abandoned.
People sometimes question what it means to be a faith person, to live a faith-filled life. Some refer to faith people as that “name it and claim it” bunch. They assume that we try to pass off wishful thinking as some form of Christian practice.
Have you heard the good news? Healing is for today! A lot of well-meaning Christians struggle to believe that God wants to heal them. They even go so far as to believe illness is part of God’s plan for their lives. It’s a lie that the enemy happily perpetuates through the Body of Christ.
God’s favor is yours! It’s true. As a child of God, you have His favor surrounding you everywhere you go, in every area of life. All you have to do is receive it. Here are five Word-based confessions to help you receive God’s favor in your life:
If you’re one of God’s children, He’s redeemed you from the curse of infertility. If you want to have children of your own, this scriptural prayer is a great place to start. Print it out and pray it every single day until your bundle of joy arrives!
God cares about your finances! Sound surprising? Did you know that there are more than 2,000 verses in the Bible that deal with financial issues like money, greed, stewardship, debt, hard work, contentment, provision, investments and more?
Have you heard about the importance of praying in faith? Have you wondered what that means and how to do it but don’t know where to begin? You may be a new Christian, or you may be a Christian who is desiring a deeper, Spirit-led life in the Lord.
It’s time to celebrate your new life in Christ! Think about it: By accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you joined God’s family. You became one of His kids, and that adoption afforded you many privileges.
Are you waiting for an answer to prayer, and you don’t know what to do? You’re really trying to remain patient, but you need wisdom that can only come from the Holy Spirit. Here are six scriptural confessions to help you stand in faith while you’re waiting for your answer:
Are you ready to walk in your dreams? Are you ready to see the deep desires of your heart come to pass—financial blessings, a godly spouse, a healthy family, career success, fulfilled ministry calling?
Everyone experiences uncertainty at times, moments when you don’t know what will happen. And while you may not be able to control the situation, you can control your reaction to it. As a child of God, you are not subject to fear, worry or anxiety.
Kenneth Copeland teaches us how to work with the Lord Jesus for the good of our nation. Through faith in the power of God we can command wicked spirits of strife and division to stop working in our nation and against our leaders, and expect results!
A lot of Christians think they understand what faith is. They think that if they’ve read their Bibles a few times, understand the message of salvation and believe that God can heal them (or deliver them or save them), then they are living by faith.
The idea of trusting Jesus with your finances may be a new one. If so, the Word is the first stop in finding out what it really means to trust Jesus and surrender your financial decisions to Him and His ways.
He said you can have faith if you want it. He said, “Have the faith of God” (Mark 11:22). Don’t wallow in doubt and worry. Instead, obey Him. Say, “Yes, Lord. I believe. I take the faith of God and I have it now. I thank You for it!”
As simple as that may sound, we receive healing from God the same way. We take Him at His Word. We believe we are healed, not because we feel healed or look healed at this moment but because God said we are.
Without our asking Him to do it…while we were still living in sin and rebellion…Jesus paid the price for our forgiveness. With His own blood, He paid the debt we owed to God for every sinful thing we have ever done…or will ever do.
Now more than ever before, believers must pay attention to God’s instructions. We must take hold of the Word of God and refuse to let go—especially in difficult times. We must be like the writer of Psalm 119 who said: “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
God has not given you a spirit of fear! Fear is the #1 reason believers don’t share their faith. In this video, discover what the Bible says about fear and how you can get rid of it so you can share Jesus with boldness.
So many born-again believers miss out on the world-overcoming victory that’s theirs in Christ Jesus. They keep finding themselves “under” the circumstances instead of “on top,” and they can’t figure out why. They’ve never understood a foundational truth about living the successful Christian life.
Leave it to Jesus to solve today’s complex problems with a scripture so simple even a child can understand it, and so broad it covers every possible situation, including believing for your unsaved spouse’s salvation—“Have faith in God” (Mark 11:22).
Make what God says the authority in your life. You shouldn’t just believe what God says to you in His Word, but you should also act on it. Acting on it is what produces results.
