Summary: Grow from ’no’ faith to ’little’ to ’strong’ and to ’great faith’

Hebrew 10:38-39

Four levels of Faith:

1. No Faith – God doing no “mighty” works…

2. Little Faith – God limited by unbelief

3. Strong Faith – God pleased with a growing faith…

4. Great Faith – God answering prayer – unleashed!

Christ addressed (#2) Little Faith more often then any…because most people live in this category & because it’s so important for us to move from defeat / being overcome to success / overcoming

1. Overcoming Care (worry) – Matthew 6:25-30

* v26 – Food = needs – God takes care of everything – trust Him!

v27 – Growth = your progress – stay healthy & God will grow you – trust Him!

v28 – Clothing = How you look – God gives beauty – trust Him!

v34 – Future = our tomorrows – God is in control – trust Him!

Anxiety / stress / Worry / peer pressure - Philippians 4:6

2. Overcoming Fear – Matthew 8:26

* When we’re alone and afraid…

* Wonder what Jesus is dreaming?

A. Fear of rejection – non –acceptance / people trap (Phobias – fear cripple)

B. Fear of evil – forces, men, workings (Fears now and then)

C. Fear of tragedy – loss, the worst (Isaiah 41:10)

3. Overcoming Logic – Matthew 16:8

* They were trying to rationalize a spiritual teaching

1. God is bigger then calendars – “revivals” scheduled, budgets – when it doesn’t make sense on paper

2. God wants me to trust Him past…my reasoning’s, my senses (sight), my ability, my comfort zone

3. Faith accepts the impossible as a real possibility!

4. Faith ignores the obvious and takes a step of obedience.

5. Faith accepts the impossible as a real possibility.

We can overcome … because

1. God is on our side and He’s in control – ch.1

2. God gives us power and strength – ch.2

3. God gives us people to help – ch.4

4. God gives us resources – ch.6
