FAITH HAS HANDS

Faith has hands                                                                        

Faith has a voice

Faith has action/deeds that reflect it

Main Scripture: Mark 11: 23 & 24

Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that it will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you’ve received it and it will be yours.
 

FAITH HAS HANDS

You can reach out with hands of faith and pickup/obtain/get what God has Already provided! A lot has already been provided by JESUS ‘death and resurrection, salvation, healing, deliverance. But we cannot get what has been provided unless WE REACH OUT WITH THE HANDS OF FAITH & OBTAIN!

With our physical hands – We take, carry and get things, similarly with our spiritual hands and FAITH IN CHRIST and His finished work for us we reach out and get those finished works. Without these spiritual hands – FAITH! WE WILL NEVER obtain/get what is ALEADY ours!

Someone can buy you a gift. And mail it to via the post office (Canada post). IT IS YOURSBOUGHT FOR YOU BY THEM! Now it sits at the post office waiting for you to get it – PICK IT UP! Your going to collect those gifts with your hands – Reaching out over the counter – And GRABBING the package! – IT IS YOURS!!!

But it is a CHOICE! Yes, FAITH IS A CHOICE! You can choose to pick up the gift at the post office or not. You can decide to leave it there! Maybe the journey to the post office is too harsh. The terrain too rough and hard. Maybe it’s comfortable sitting at home – without the GIFT. You WANT it but your not willing to embark on the journey to the post office to get it! FAITH IS A JOURNEY! It’s too hard so you stay without what you truly want. It is already yours and is not too far away! It simply requires – A JOURNEY to get (hands) what is already YOURS! (having faith)

Many miss out on the goodies – PAID FOR IN FULL. Simply because they refused to reach out and GRAB them with the hands of faith.

2. FAITH HAS A VOICE.

     If you’re on your way to get a parcel at the post office for your – your excited, anticipating    what the gift will be! You say, “I am going to get my GIFT”, “That GIFT is mine”. This is the truth! You’ve left your house, shut the door and you’re on your way to get the gift for you by someone!

Your Excited/anticipating the gift, your grateful for someone buying this gift! Your sure/confident of the fact that the gift is yours and is waiting for you at the post office. That is why your going – Excited and grateful.

Your sure because the GIFT GIVER told you so and you trust the gift giver. He is reliable and full of integrity. If he said that it’s there, then it’s there. All this has a VOICE!

Excitement and Anticipation has a VOICE! – Has a voice/corresponding words and attitudes.

Gratitude has a voice – corresponding words and actions.

Confident Trust has a voice and corresponding words and actions!

FAITH SPEAKS – It voices these three things above, while grabbing and reaching out for the gift with it’s HANDS!!!

Doubt, fear and unbelief also speak – It voices depression/despair, ingratitude/self pity/non-consistent trust.

YES, FAITH SPEAKS! IT HAS A VOICE! It speaks! About the Gift and the Gift Giver!

Through the WORD OF GOD! In excitement and anticipation, gratitude and consistent trust.

3. FAITH HAS ACTION!

Scripture: James 2:14

What good is it, dear brothers, sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can this faith SAVE {DELIVER or HEAL} you?

FAITH DOES! It’s got legs! It does what IT BELIVES and SPEAKS!

Faith has hands

Faith has a voice

Faith has legs

Faith without corresponding action – IS DEAD

If you believe a life changing and transforming gift is at the post office! But you never get up the couch and go and get it. Do you really believe it is there and for you!?

Faith has hands to get and to go – Go on the journey of faith to get to the gift – the destination and obtain and truly gain from it.

FAITH IS THE KEY!!!

We can get nothing without it in the kingdom and NEVER truly please God.

Hebrews 11:6

Without FAITH, it is impossible to please God.

Therefore, Have faith in God!! And Get all He has given and provided for you!

Healing, Salvation, Deliverance, Protection, Provision!

Faith is the key – Use it hands to get what IS YOURS! In and through Christ Jesus.

 

Prayer Point

Lord, teach, help and enable us to have faith!!! Amen
