Hope & Faith In God

1 Peter 1:21
Through Him you believe in (adhere to, rely on) God, Who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him honor and glory, so that your faith and hope are [centered and rest] in God.

Because of what Jesus did to reunite our relationship with the Father, we should now rest our hope and our faith in Him. Hope is where we start for hope is a confident expectation of good. When we find out through the Word of God of the promises He has for us, those promises give us hope. That becomes our goal for we now know what God has provided for us.

This is where faith comes in, for faith then gives substance to what we hope for. Faith lays hold of the goal in our hearts, what became our hope, and it is by faith we obtain God’s promises. Faith is based on God’s Word and comes by hearing the Word of God proclaimed. We need to take God’s Word and begin to proclaim those promises as already ours to build our faith.

As we do scripture teaches us to no longer look at what is seen in the natural, but to look to what is not yet seen manifest, the Word of God. As we continue to walk by faith, calling those things which be not as though they were just as God Himself does (Romans 4:17), we can see those promises come to pass. This is how we keep our hope and faith centered in God.

Give Thanks Always

Hebrews 13:15
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

Giving thanks should be a part of the believers life everyday. Notice it says in this verse we are to continually offer thanks, even as a sacrifice of praise. It’s easy to thank God when things are going your way, but what about when you are facing difficult circumstances. It is in those times you need to thank God the most, when you don’t feel like giving thanks.

As scripture teaches us we walk by faith not by sight. Colossians 4:2 tells us we are to be vigilant in prayer with thanksgiving. We don’t thank God for the difficult circumstances, but for what He has done to help us overcome them. In all things, in every situation of life, we are to be thanking God for what He has done for us through Christ Jesus.

When believers lose their heart of gratitude they become bitter not better, and this will only rob you of what God has for your life. Don’t allow the enemy and circumstances in life to take from you the gratitude we should have for God and for all He has done. Continually thank God for what He has done for you through Christ Jesus, and you can see God bring you through to victory.

One With The Lord

Colossians 1:19-20
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,
20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

The word reconcile means to bring back to a former state of harmony. The word peace means to establish harmony. If you have ever heard a group of singers you can always tell when someone is singing out of harmony with the rest of the group. But when they sing together in harmony it not only sounds beautiful, you don’t notice individual singers because they sound as one.

So it is when we get born again. Because of the sin nature of our old spirit man we were out of harmony with God. But once we get born again we become one spirit with the Lord. This harmony with God is what makes us so powerful in the earth. The devil wants to keep us blind to the fact that we are one with God. If he can do this he knows he can take advantage of our life through deception.

When a believer realizes they are one spirit with the Lord, and they begin to walk in harmony with God; they can go through life victorious for God will never be defeated and neither will the child of God who knows and walks in the light of their union with Him. No weapon formed against a child of God that knows who they are in Christ will prosper, because they are one spirit with the Lord.

Love Speaks The Truth

Ephesians 4:15
Instead, by truth spoken in love, we are to grow in every way into Him—the Anointed One, the head.

One of the key aspects of love that you don’t hear much about today is speaking the truth, because if you love someone you tell them the truth. We are told by many today that to ever go to someone and address any sin in their life is in fact judging them and not walking in love, when in fact to not do so is to not walk in the love of God. Proverbs does tell us that love covers a multitude of sin, but that refers to forgiving those who have wronged you.

Galatians 6:1 tells us that if a believer is caught in sin, those who are spiritual (not flesh ruled) are to go to them to try and restore them, helping them get out of their sin. That is what love does. As scripture reveals in 1 John 4:8, God is love, and Jesus was God manifested in the flesh. Jesus also said that He only did what He was directed by His Father (Love) to do. Ephesians 5:1 tells us, we as God’s children are to imitate Him.

Jesus (Love Himself) told a man who was healed by Him, ” See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” When a prostitute was brought to Him after all the religious leaders left, Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” To condemn means to judge one to damnation. That is not our place, but again He addresses her sin by telling her to stop. That is what Love does. Love speaks the truth, it does not overlook someone’s sin and stay silent. And for those who receive it, the truth will set them free.

Agree With God

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

Far too many Christians on a daily basis are choosing to disagree with God. God believes one thing but they believe something else. It is one thing to disagree with other people about things here on earth, but have you ever thought about what God believes about you? What does He actually believe about your life? All we have to do is go to the Word of God to find out, for His Word clearly reveals what God believes about us.

For example do you know what God believes about your physical condition? If you read Psalm 107:20 it says God sent His Word and healed you and delivered you from all destruction. Isaiah 53:4-5 tells us that Jesus bore your sickness and carried your pains for by His stripes you are healed. Matthew 8:17 tells us that Jesus bore our sickness and carried our disease. Finally 1 Peter 2:24 says that with His stripes you were healed. So as far as God is concerned, He believes you are healed according to His Word.

God’s Word says you are blessed (Ephesians 1:3). His Word also tells us in Galatians 3:13 you have been redeemed from the curse of the law. Romans 8:37 says we are more than conquerors. These are all things that God believes about all who are born again, and there is much more that scripture reveals to us as well. If God believes these things about us, don’t you think that we should also? As long as we say something other than what God says, we are not agreeing with Him. If you want to walk in what God has for you, you need to agree with Him. Start agreeing with God by saying what God says about you, and you can walk in what He believes.
