Godly Faith
Articles



as Christians who believe that God is our Father and trust in Jesus as our Lord and Messiah and for those of us who are Christians who are listening for the leading of the Holy Spirit we have faith we do so by faith we stand in faith we press in by faith we hope in faith and we are saved by faith God didn't walk into the room and is our busy hand us and us his business card and said Here I am and we all well now that I can see you there we go no we believe by faith Hebrews 11:3 says through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear this verse has two interpretations and both are correct it speaks to us that by faith we know that God created the worlds and us it also is saying that God used his faith to make something from nothingness romans 4 verse 17 b says even God who quickeneth the dead and calleth those things which be not as though they were that's god kind of faith that's godly faith as adopted children of God we cry Abba Father and we were adopted through the price that Jesus paid we get a greater understanding of Genesis where we are made in His image then as we are we act like him he's a spirit we have that Spirit of God within us as a gift we use the same type of faith we can actually possess godly faith yes we've all been given a measure of faith in that measure of faith is what it stirs us up to salvation but after that point or even before that point throughout all of our existence we have access to godly faith psalm 119 90 says thy faithful as faithfulness is to all generations thou has to established the earth by death in it well we're part of all generations I think okay with the understanding of these verses it's clear that God always operates by faith he calls into being life from lifelessness he speaks abundance in the presence of emptiness we can also see that this is for all generations that means us it includes us and we're spiritual beings we've been we have that that flame of that that that flicker of life of the Spirit of God so we can walk in the same type of faith if we will simply believe so we do that now we don't give up walking by faith we don't give up the pressing and and all of the things we talk about our duty and our stewardship we do the work you know does not just oh god you're faithful you're gonna take care of everything and then we sit on the front porch going why aren't things happen oh there's work for us to do okay we have to press in all right we have to believe God by faith we have to stand on the faith that we know okay but when that's all said and done we should know that when we are in need when we're weak he's strong and that the true one and only true Living God has godly faith to give to us as a gift and a gift is the important part to get grasped there okay turn to Romans four please as we're gonna see here that as good as we try to be in as hard as we try to work it's still a gift and glory to God for it okay because you can have godly faith right where you are right at this very moment no matter what's going on no matter what you've done or haven't done you can't have the opportunity to believe God to get the stuff out of the way and believe God for godly faith for whatever situation you're in what circumstance surrounds you you can take your little measure of faith that you believe God is and you can take that ankle ward I need your faith to move in on this situation I'm lacking and you go through the Beatitudes blessed over the weak you know bless when the weak say I am strong I mean Romans yet Romans 4 verse 1 when talk about Abraham the father of faith as as he is called by some what shall we say then that Abraham our Father I'm talking about Jewish lineage here as pertaining to the flesh hath found forth Abraham were justified by works he hath whereof to glory but not before God in other words if he did it all if he just had you know just a faithful guy and he just know I did it all I just worked my faith at work work work work I stood I pressed and that's all there was to it you know you guys know what a wonderful guy right but not before God there's more to Abraham than just his works he's called the father of faith by some however God Almighty is our holy father all of the miracles signs and wonders are of God and he gets all the glory yes no pastor no minister no champions or whatever they call him a faith the warriors of faith in the past all of that's great and wonderful it's a testimony of God's work in men to show you that it's capable and possible for men to get there but God gets all of the glory for every single miracle sign and wonder or at least he should because even Hebrews to Hebrews 12 verse 2 says looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith okay that's bookends of our existence here all of our works of faith salvation standing pressing believing etc whatever walking by faith is just good stewardship of what we've been given we were given that measure of faith and he gives us godly faith unto salvation we're vessels in which a measure of faith has been deposited and groan unless we take it upon ourselves that we're just so super spiritual and faithful that you know we can go it alone we need to give verse three what does it say for what saith the scripture abraham believed god and it was counted unto him for righteousness period now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace but of debt but to him that worketh not but believeth on him that is just that justifies the ungodly his faith is Accountant is counted for righteousness now you need great faith to just understand what I just read get a Bible get the King James and it really does say pretty much everything I said the point is this is really good news for us for two reasons that's why I'm excited about it you know Abraham here's Abraham you know father Abraham father of faith but we're gonna see exactly what source he went to to be counted as righteous says if it was to his works you know it is his work is not reckoned of grace but of dead okay we don't know anybody anything except to love him well I'll get to that in a minute this is really good news to us for two reasons first we do not have to be perfect to be faithful unto God as diligent as we try to be we're all gonna miss it anybody here not anybody here I'm so diligent I never miss it hopefully no hands go up you know if that's true you could up here and you do this and I'll sit and listen how do you be difficult in all the time this is especially true in the areas of the supernatural because there's a tendency to occasionally you know when situations affect us when stuff comes in when we get a you know all of the influences to mingle a little carnal nature into super natural things Psalm 138 verse 8 says the Lord will perfect that which concern with me thy mercy O Lord endureth forever forsake not the words of thine own hands give me the works of thine own hands God promises to perfect that which concerns us his words with faith so do we she that includes us ok the second part of godly faith in these verses is that as we seek his faith we are seeking his face as we seek God we're seeking the very nature of who he is and what he is so his face and his faith are there at the same time ok when we seek Him by faith he then rewards us with faith it's one thing to get rewarded by somebody you know here's theirs here's something there's a solution here's a thing you mean it's another thing to have the wisdom and the faith instilled to be able to create it on your own I mean to create it the next time with God let's put it that way Hebrews 11:6 says but without faith it is impossible to please him for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a little order of them that diligently seek Him he gives us his faith that faith as the same power as the faith he used to create the universe what better gift what more powerful gifts stuff things the same power that created you and me that created everything we can see the universe the stars at night when we seek Him he rewards us as we diligently use our faith to seek Him with his faith that created everything the faith that created light is available to heal the faith that created light is available to prosper the faith that created light is the capacity to restore and even to love again a broken heart people just I'm just I feel like a torn up empty shell love will give the capacity to fill you with love under Romans 4 verse 6 even as david also describeth the blessedness of the man on whom god imputeth righteousness without works saying blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin this is the core purpose of godly faith it's for salvation it's for taking all of the stuff I've ever done all the stuff you've ever done all the stuff everybody's ever done and all the stuff anybody ever might do and go I can fix that God fixes it by faith it is the measure of faith that grows in us that changes us it gets us to that place where you know I've knocked around number of years now and everything I've tried doesn't seem to really bring that much happiness doesn't solve stuff I'm in a worse state my relationship you know down the line and all of a sudden this this little measure of faith that rises up grows in us and grows us and then get to this place where I'm at the end of myself and all the angels go yay you know in God goes yes now you're at the place where I can give the clay I can mold and grow and make big we are forgiven and we forgive ourselves we are made whole by faith 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 17 says therefore if any man any person man woman child any any throughout the entire world seven billion be in Christ he she they are a new creature old things are passed away behold all things become new there is nothing in heaven and earth more precious and miraculous than the assurance that we are going to spend eternity with the Lord in heaven however our newness of life's starts as soon as we have faith to believe it that means we become new when we believe we become new that newness of life starts immediately when we go yeah okay that means as soon as we believe that by faith we are debt-free we're healed or loved we have peace whatever thing whatever thing that needs to become new has become new in our spirit and then as God just went let there be light as we speak let there be but whatever that is you fill in the blank today whatever there might be forever little or however long you've been saved the miraculous power of God to reach into us and for us to have faith in God that we could be saved for attorney is that power that created the universe and it can cure and heal and deliver and restore whatever is going on in your life we're debt-free and we know we don't owe anything it's a gift whoever got a gift and then had to pay for it it's not a gift then oh we have one thing we're gonna do it we owe no man anything except to love them no you're gonna use the faith of God you might as well act like him you know and love them we are renewed starting right now starting right now starting right now start it is keeps it repeating and repeating okay I believe okay right now as many times as you need to back up start over and go this is the right now this is the you're the new command I'm a new creature you're a new creature unlimited unlimited unlimited because God is it you can have the right now of God as many stars are there in this size many grands a saint sand in the in the beach as many drops of water in the ocean turn to John three verse one we're gonna see this and we're gonna see it in the life and Ministry of Jesus what better place to see godly faith then the son walking on this earth as a man walking it out and dealing with circumstances situations okay and people okay first one there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus a ruler of the Jews the same came to Jesus by night and said unto him rabbi we know that thou art a teacher come from God for no man can do these miracles that thou doest except God be with him okay right away we see that Nicodemus is on the fence here okay he's teetering he sneaks out at night okay and thinks Jesus is just a fellow teacher okay not Messiah he's not coming into Lord what must I do you know he nothing in the description here leads us to think that Nick is heading toward salvation at all he's just mildly curious because of the rumors that he's heard what's going on here what's up with that just curious you know but I don't want many of my friends to see me out so I'm just you know honey I'm going for a walk you know I'll be back in a little and sneaks over where Jesus is jesus answered him and said um jesus answered and said unto Him verily verily I say unto thee except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God it's the way God works there has to be that renewal that measure of faith has to fire off that we've all been given but it has to fire off four eyes to be open see the way God does things Nicodemus said on him how can a man be born again when he is old can he enter the second time into his mother's womb and be born here's where we see the misunderstanding of the supernatural there's no way for someone to be born twice in the natural you know looking into the faith of God and in his word from a carnal perspective his fruitless and pointless it also may be used to deceive us and others I can't look at God and measure him by the yardstick of of man God it must be that spiritual things must be done spiritual supernatural things can only be defined by supernatural descriptions that make sense okay let's see weird verse 5 jesus answered verily I say to you except a man be born of water and of the spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit excuse me please allow me right here to expound on what Jesus is saying verily that word means certain confident proven truth it's not facts Jesus is not relaying a fact here facts are observable occurrences which are subject to perspective and viewpoint you've got one no facts or fact as a fact is a fact look at my hand and what do you see well the truth is that's my hand okay what do you see Yeah right what do I see I see my palm I see that lines of my palm and my fingers right that's a fact that's what you see right the palm of my hand no you see the back of my hand so from your perspective the fact is that's the back of my hand from my perspective the fact is that's a palm of my hand well here's how facts changed so quickly okay now what fact do you see you see the fact that I thought a minute of a min ago I see the fact that you thought of a min ago but because of our perspective those facts changed like that truth doesn't do that the truth of godly faith holds no margin of error none Marvel not that I said this under thee you must be warm sorry that's verse 7 Marvel not that I said this unto thee you must be born again see we were born once of water he said so this is referring to the N biotic fluid that encompasses every fetus in the womb it's that protection it's that natural birth protection fluid okay it's the term where her water broke comes from when we know indicating their child's about ready to be born that's born of water but when we're born of the Spirit there is much more life changing going on typically newborns are born here and they come here and not a lot changes okay there's a couple things umbilical cords and breathing air but generally you know fingers toes you know that all's is pretty much just moving from one location to another when we are born of the Spirit our spirits are changed our souls are changed and even our bodies have minutes of life if only we choose to believe there are people that don't there are people that go through all the process and they don't have faith in of themselves and they don't tap into the belief that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek them for God to come in as they're saved and change their situation they go to church they do the thing but nothing changes around them well there's a reason for that and the point of it is you know they can they can do all the right things they could work and do it and serve but the god-kind of faith' needs to come in on the inside of them and take that little measure of faith that they used to get saved which is the most miraculous miracle there ever was and just takes well not explode blossom it into faith to believe for whatsoever they need better eyesight better language skills you know whatever we need if we'll choose to believe it verse 8 the wind bloweth where it listeth and thou hearest there the sound thereof but canst not tell whence it cometh and whether it goeth so is every one that is born of the Spirit trusting in our natural senses to evaluate that which is supernatural is not going to produce trustworthy results man-made devices are measure things that produce man-made results what temperature is it in heaven do you think God really has a thermometer up there you know what what time is it in heaven what time zone does God is heaven go by you know supernatural things are measured by supernatural conditions and supernatural understandings natural things are natural the wind blows and you feel it okay but you don't know where it's coming from you don't have a clue Hallett we have a concepts of how it starts but you don't know really where that breeze came from came from that direction that's about it such are things in the spirit when we have the super natural faith of God and we just have to trust that he's gonna work it out okay and I have experienced a couple years now don't take my shoes off that it works the faith of God comes where where a weak he is strong he comes in it and all of a sudden because I just took oh god I like plumbing ah and it comes in and all of a sudden it works and I go Oh glory to God if you'll take care of sinks and tubes how much more of my physical body and my friends lives and my associates keep being healed on the verge of death and brought back and the report is there going back home out of the hospital and they'll be back to work in a month a little inside thing there but understand the faith of God that created the universe can fix a hangnail and he can fix nations so first night Nicodemus answered and said in in how can these things be jesus answered him and said art thou a master of Israel and knoweth not these things see here's where the question of faith comes in people have varying natural faced faith in others or they have faith in nature or they have faith in man-made stuff Nicodemus is a teacher of Israel he's a teacher of the of God's Word yet he's missing the Messiah standing right in front of him the Old Testament speaks of everything that Jesus was and is and Nicodemus is going well how can these things be you know it's like Zacharias go how come my way how can you produce a birth in my wife she's old well you remember Abraham Sarah it kind of worked it out God's that doesn't have a problem with that it's because Nicodemus has only faith in the natural he's learned he knows all of the scripture you would have memorized certain passages at least the first five books I think they've memorized so they can but the power of it the spiritual nature of the word the super nature of God coming in and confirming his word with miracle signs and wonders was absent you sure how can this be for him God and His miracles were far off it was all back in the day of Moses when he parted the sea or when the Prophet part of the Jordan or when he laid on the the person and they were healed that was only ancient times now we're just search as usual don't upset what's going on no no the power of God is available didn't it say for all generations yes well this is a generation okay it's available for those who will believe it well Jesus said it this way verse 11 verily verily I say unto thee we speak that we do know and testify that we have seen yet you receive not our witness if I have told you earthly things and you believe not how shall you believe if I tell you of heavenly things Jesus is marveling at Nicodemus unbelief not at his credentials that's good news that's for whosoever will just step up I don't have the training I don't have the just believe he acknowledges natural occurrences Jesus does sure we're not in denial bad stuff happens to good people good stuff happens for bad people those are facts and they're subject to perspective and they're subject to change but what Jesus is talking about here is godly faith he acknowledges the natural occurrence but he chooses to hold the promises of God above the natural hold the promises of God above what's going on around in his godly faith is in higher regard yeah these are the situations this is the circumstance yes there's a Roman occupation here okay yeah this is coming against us but that's a fact the God faith that created the universe is far above these earthly lower carnal thoughts and ways of doing things godly faith can come in and go well that may be a fact but here's the truth boom it's done 13 and no man hath ascended up to heaven but he that came down from heaven even the Son of Man which is in heaven and as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness even so must the Son of Man be lifted up Jesus is all straight out of the Old Testament he's not reading the new chapter here for Nick he's going straight through Scripture Jesus hasn't strayed one iota from the scriptures that this Pharisee would have memorized now comes the leap of faith only God can provide here's where we all choose to accept the faith of God or not verse 15 for whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have eternal life for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life just three men right down the line okay once godly faith blooms on the inside of us were born again when what then is too hard for us to believe I mean if you think about that you go faith of God that little mustard seed and it blooms inside of us and God just stops all of everything the entire universe is on hold for just a second and we go I believe within him because you have eternal life you shall not perish when we believe that and every Christian does then if we believe that by faith then what faith do we need in in terms of understanding to fix the other stuff I mean if I can believe for this miraculous supreme eternal salvation and my eternity starts today you know that you know then what's too hard for us to believe that the faith of God may not fix the words should not perish but have eternal life starts now and it applies to healing prosperity wisdom love family friends whatsoever we only need to believe God that He loves us and makes a way to remove condemnation and the sin of thinking of ourselves to unworthy that's one of the biggest blocks well I couldn't have the faith of Almighty holy God because I'm so unworthy Jesus did something about that paid a dear price and it hurt so he's pretty much serious that that's taken care of he's not going back to the cross anytime soon ever okay so that's taken care of well going on for God 17 for God sent not his son into the world to condemn it to condemn it but that the world through him might be saved he that believeth on him is not condemned but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not received the name of the only begotten Son of God you have to speak up received believe yeah I'm so so focused on getting you to receive the faith of God but believing is is the ring is the thing is the action that we receive but I want to be accurate not you correct me anytime I get off on you know one dot one tittle I want to make sure you've got this so there isn't someone out there thinking school well he said the wrong word there for everything you've said for this entire message isn't true so help me help you help them help us and we all get help from God I got my faith so we come back briefly to Abraham in Romans 4 verse 13 for the promise that he should be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or twe seed through the law but through righteousness of faith for if they which were of the law be heirs faith is made void and the promise a gift of none effect because the law worketh wrath for where no law is there is no transgression just having the law that points out error does nothing to bring on godly thing so all the church church stuff all the religion all the traditions it just point out now that's that's error does nothing repentance submission receiving forgiveness are all necessary for the supernatural release of godly faith I'll be aware this is not just the law of the Old Testament we're talking about it includes any religious tradition from any religion from any age it also encompasses all the natural laws of the land of governmental laws any of that stuff okay it just points to error and has nothing to do with repentance submission forgiveness salvation it's not going to release the supernatural capacity of God faith Romans 4 verse 20 said to about Abraham he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief but was strong in faith giving glory to God and being fully persuaded that what he had promised he was also able to perform that's seeking God and believing he's a reward therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness that's righteousness that's righteous Abraham without the law without a support group without social media without social security without healthcare without all of the the natural institutions that are there to help pretty Scott for him we're not denying them what we're doing is we're putting them in a place and we're saying the faith of God is higher yes we hold it to a higher degree in a higher regard and Lord that your faith would come into those places and get them turned on to that higher power of healing that higher power of prosperity that higher power of wisdom and knowledge all of these can help naturally and they do to some extent but if they replace or supersede godly faith there's a problem not so us we have faith we have the faith of God given to us and grown in us in Jesus name now verse 23 in Romans Force's now it was written now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him but for us also that's you you you you you you you you you all yous out there but for us also to whom it shall be imputed what the righteousness of God if we'll believe let me just read the scripture but for all so to whom it shall be imputed if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead who was delivered for our offenses and was raised again for our justification that's the faith of God wanting to come into your situation and just wipe the slate clean therefore we're justified by faith and we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ but that's chapter five and four another message for today have godly faith and be blessed in Jesus name
