FAITH,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”   11/11/19,   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them…”(2 Kings 6:16, 
Delivered From All

Everyone has times when they feel overwhelmed or “outnumbered” by the things that are coming against them. You may have heard the saying, “When it rains, it pours.” For example, just about the time the air conditioner needs repair in your house, the transmission goes out in your car. It seems like one thing happens after another. It may feel as if all the forces of darkness are coming against you. When it feels as though you’re far behind, outnumbered, outsized and outclassed, instead of being discouraged, have a new perspective. The Scripture promises that with God on your side, you have all the resources you need to have complete victory. You are never outnumbered because the Greater One lives in you! It’s like when you’re expecting someone for dinner; you don’t wait until they show up before you decide to start cooking. Most likely you start early in the day. You make sure the house is clean, you go to the grocery store, and maybe buy some flowers for the table. You make preparations because you’re expecting someone. Well, that’s the attitude we need to have while we’re waiting for God’s promises to come to pass. As you put actions behind your prayers, your faith comes alive and opens the door for God to move mightily on your behalf.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your faithfulness to me. Thank You for Your peace even in the midst of the storms of life. I know that You are with me, and I can stand strong because You will lead me into victory all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Thoughts:
James is very strong in teaching the same thing,  Faith always precedes action and without action there is no faith and without faith it is impossible to please GOD.   We can understand, but without action there is no heart faith.   Everything that is made by God is held together by faith.  God is trying to teach us the rudimentary facts concerning how faith works.  If we have to see it to believe it, we will never learn how to walk in faith.   From God’s point of view faith itself is the substance and the evidence,  Heb.11.  Until in a John 17 Unity and we really see how God sees the Church in Victory by faith we will never experience the snatching (rapture) away.  In Rev.12:11-12 the Church goes home to boot lucifer and his fallen ones out of the Kingdom of Heaven.  And faith is the victory.  The Church is called home to do battle in faith against the Enemy.  We are far from being ready for this battle in the heavens.  We have been divided and have little faith for even ourselves much less the unity that Jesus prayed for in John 17.  In The Revelation 12:11-13 it is a future prophesy as follows: 

 “And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].12 Therefore be glad (exult), O heavens and you that dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in fierce anger (fury), because he knows that he has [only] a short time [left] !”    This is a total victory by faith alone.  Roman 8 backs this up: 28 “We are assured and know that [[j]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was [k]aware and [l]loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]34 Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us?35 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors [m]and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things [n]impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Rom. 8 AMPC  So The Church goes home in HIS VICTORY in FAITH for HIS GLORY…  Hope to see you there.   Yours in HIS great love,  Ken<><
