Increasing Our Faith

Increasing Our Faith: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 (KJV)
Word of Encouragement: When reading the Word of God, read it out loud so you can hear it and you will start to notice your faith increase.

The Fruit Of The Spirit. Part 1

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭22-23‬ (KJV)

Love!

Love: Greek – love, that is, affection or benevolence; specifically (plural) a love feast: – (feast of) charity ([-ably]), dear, love.

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. John‬ ‭15‬:‭9-10‬ (KJV)

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
John‬ ‭15‬:‭12‬ (KJV)

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.
John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ (KJV)

Joy!

Joy: Greek – cheerfulness, that is, calm delight: – gladness, greatly, (be exceeding) joy (-ful, -fully, -fulness, -ous).

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
John‬ ‭15‬:‭11‬ (KJV)

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah‬ ‭8‬:‭10‬ (KJV)

Peace!

Peace: Greek – (to join); peace by implication prosperity: – one, peace, quietness, rest, + set at one again.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ (KJV)

And thus shall ye say to him that liveth in prosperity, Peace be both to thee, and peace be to thine house, and peace be unto all that thou hast.
1 Samuel‬ ‭25‬:‭6‬ (KJV)

Be blessed, be fruitful and show your fruit.

The Peace Of God!

Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭4-7‬ (KJV)

Be blessed and walk in the peace of God!

We Are Overcomer’s!

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John‬ ‭5‬:‭4‬ (KJV)

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬ (KJV)

As the body of Christ, we are overcomer’s. Greater is He that is in us. We have the Greater One (Jesus) living in us. Praise God!

Be blessed and favor be to you!

The Love Of God!

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭5‬ (KJV)

The Amplified version says in Romans 5:5, Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.

God’s love is shed abroad, it has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. If you have have a personal relationship with Jesus, then you have the love of God that has been given to you, poured out in your heart by the Holy Spirit.

God’s love enables us to be His love and love one another even when we don’t feel like it or even if we don’t want to. We are to be His love. God loves us so much that He gave us His love, Jesus.

Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭18‬ (KJV)

Perfect: Greek – complete, completeness

God’s love is complete, it lacks nothing. With His love we know we don’t have to have fear. He is our protector. (Psalm 91, Isaiah 54:17)
With God’s love it casteth out fear. So fear not for He is with you.

Be Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ KJV)

Conformed: Greek – to fashion alike, conform to the same pattern, conform to, fashion self according to.

Transformed: Greek – to transform, change, transfigure, transform.

How do we renew our mind? By reading and studying the Word of God! We get the Word in our heart. We think and meditate on it and speak it forth out of our mouth. We will begin to see changes in us and around about us.

Read, study, meditate, think on it and speak and pray the Word of God by faith and you will see the Word start to manifest in your behalf.

In Jesus Name.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭13-14‬ KJV)

When we ask in prayer in the name of Jesus, we will receive. Jesus said if ye shall ask any thing in my (His) name, I (He) will do it. If we will ask anything in His name according to the Will of God, nothing out of His Will, He will do it, that it will give God the glory.

Believe That You Receive It And You Shall Have It.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (‭Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭24‬ KJV)

Remember to pray in the name of Jesus, believe that you receive it and you shall have it and give God praise and glory and thank Him for it.

Be blessed!

The Joy Of The Lord!

The Joy Of The Lord Is Your Strength.

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. (‭Nehemiah‬ ‭8‬:‭10‬ KJV)

Joy Cometh In The Morning.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (‭Psalms‬ ‭30‬:‭5‬ KJV)

With a personal relationship with Jesus, you have His joy in you. When you feel down or you just need a lifting in your spirit, just start to laugh. You may say, you don’t have any thing to laugh about, just start laughing and when you do the joy will begin being stirred up and before you know it, you will be laughing continuously.

It’s up to us to be joyful. It may start with a giggle and then laughter. We have to let it come forth. When it comes forth we will feel refreshed.

Joy Brings Forth Happiness And Brings Forth Healing Like A Medicine.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭17‬:‭22‬ KJV)

The Amplified version (‭Proverbs‬ ‭17‬:‭22‬) says, A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

Start today and spend some time laughing and be refreshed.

Be blessed and enjoy the Joy!
