Matthew 21:21 New International Version (NIV)
21 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.
HAVE FAITH DON’T DOUBT
Forward Thinkers, say to this mountain MOVE
Powerful Promise—-You will receive whatever you ask for in Prayer
Put a Prayer of Promise in the atmosphere now and Believe It’s Already Done
Forward Thinkers, there is a constant battle between your level of faith and your level of doubt. God has established a system to increase your faith and Satan controls and operates a system designed to trick you into a life of doubt.
Forward Thinkers, ask yourself a question — whose system am I operating under?
Major note here — what you say will be determined and birthed either out of Faith or Doubt.
Doubt kills but Faith gives
Forward Thinkers, I received a phone call from a church member in the hospital diagnosed with a condition and she was having a panic attack. While talking to her I started praying and researching her condition. Forward Thinkers, listen to this. I discovered President John F Kennedy, Jr. had what she had and I told her that if he can be President with it then she can live and excel with it. I also said release your faith and claim your healing. She replied, “Yes Sir I feel better already.”
Forward Thinkers, three days later she was told her diagnosis was premature and she didn’t even have what they initially said she had.
Forward Thinkers, let me share a personal secret I use when dealing with difficult stuff. I find a testimony of someone who defeated the same situation and then I claim I’m next. If I can’t find a testimony of victory, I declare I’m the Trailblazer and I’ll be the first to prove you can win even in this situation.
Single mothers, stop doubting. Remember, Jesus mother, Mary, was single when she found out she was pregnant. Her baby daddy Joseph exits the story early in the life of Jesus but she still produced a child of Greatness.
Forward Thinkers, you’re not tired. You’re READY to produce Greatness.
Brothers, stop doubting your future because of your past. Paul had a jacked up past filled with negative behavior but God saw the best in him and called him into Greatness.
Forward Thinkers, that mountain, that issue, that thing, that closed door is really not your problem. Jesus says your level of faith is the problem.
Matthew 9:29 New International Version (NIV)
29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.”
Forward Thinkers, no more excuses. It shall be done according to our level of faith.
He touched their eyes and their sight was restored.
2 blind men—Condition—1) Can’t see 2) Need others to assist 3) Not an ideal condition
Jesus touched their eyes but it was their faith that restored their sight.
People perish for lack of vision.
Forward Thinkers, the devil desires you to focus on being blind so you can’t see the possibilities your faith can produce.
Forward Thinkers, you must see yourself as God sees you and remember at all times God saw enough in you to send His Son for you and Jesus saw enough in you to die for you.
I’m not tired but I’m tired of being blind, so I’m declaring, I’m ready to see.
Question? See What? See myself winning, shining, being great, overcoming, dominating, and doing something amazing.
Forward Thinkers, we must have faith to see ourselves better.
Matthew 4:8-11 New International Version (NIV)
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’[a]”
11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
The devil took Him to a very high mountain and tested Him by showing Him all the kingdoms of the world and told Him I will give you all this IF YOU BOW DOWN & WORSHIP ME.
Unfortunately, many have fallen for this trick of manipulation just like Eve in the garden. She had everything and allowed the devil to use her vision of Self Importance to blind her and cause her to lose everything.
Forward Thinkers, don’t be so hard on Eve because this modern day church has also often fallen for the same trick. It is hard now to distinguish who we are worshipping because everything looks and sounds like entertainment, flesh feeding, and people pleasing.
Look at verse 10: Away from me Satan–it is written, worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.
Verse 11: THEN the devil left Him and Angels came.
Forward Thinkers, all these years I just discovered this revelation. When the devil showed up, Jesus had faith to use the Word of God to defeat him. That part is not new but needs to be reinforced because we still make the mistake of trying to defeat the devil with everything other than the proven method found in God’s Word.
Forward Thinkers, this method makes you tired but notice when Jesus releases His faith the devil runs from Him and Angels run to Him to encourage Him, attend to Him, and motivate Him.
Forward Thinkers, when we release faith, positive results are attracted to us and we win.
