FAITH FIGHTS


Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.


I heard a story about a midwestern farmer 50 years ago. The farmer went to the bank to borrow money to buy seed to plant his whole farm in corn. He fired up the old tractor and plowed for many days. He disced the ground. He spread fertilizer over the whole farm... and planted the corn.


The rains came and the corn grew. In one day millions of grasshoppers flew on to his property and his precious crop was being consumed by the grasshoppers.


One Sunday at prayer meeting the farmer cried out to God... Father, we will loose the whole farm, I owe money at the bank...


The farmer got up from prayer in GREAT FAITH... As he walked home, his heart kept saying, let the chickens out...


Now the farmer pondered: HOW WILL LETTING THE CHICKENS OUT HELP ME?

The next day the farmer was up at dawn, he opened the doors to the chicken house...The chickens came out and ate the grasshoppers...

The chickens thrived... there were many baby chickens hatched. The eggs were plentiful.


The farmer started loading up the eggs and chickens and traveled the area selling the chickens...


No, the farmers faith never saved the crop, but GOD HAD A BETTER IDEA. For several years the farmer made his living from the chickens that God blessed...


I want to tell you --- FAITH FIGHTS...

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH...
