WALKING BY FAITH

PART # 2

Last Night we were talking about how God can’t

Use Quitters!!!

We don’t need any distraction, We need a

CLEAR DIRECTION FOR OUR FAITH WALK!!!

WITH OUR GOD!!!

We must continue forward in our faith walk…

Some Months ago our Pastor said in his sermon

Something that hits home for most of us…HE SAID

YOU CAN’T STAND STILL IN CHRISTIANITY

YOU HAVE TO EITHER BE MOVING FORWARD OR

BACKWARD (BACKSLIDING)

THIS IS SO VERY TRUE!!!!

We must advance forward in prayer – I’m ok here

NO MAN IS TOO SINFUL OR TO PURE TO PRAY!!!

We must advance forward with purity – I’m ok here

WE HAVE TO TRY TO REMAIN AS PURE AS POSSIBLE!!! REMEMBER HOW PURE CHRIST WAS!

We must advance forward with patience – I need work here

I’VE ALWAYS HEARD PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE!

Our adversary the devil is waiting to devour us!

We must advance forward with persistence – I nail this one

PAY ATTENTION TO OUR KIDS AND LEARN this one

Now---some of us may say something like this!!!

WELL I WOULD REALLY like to be walking by faith

BUT I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO DO IT!!!!!

Do you know why We can’t do it????

Because We have enemies against us and they are

Against us in every direction…like YOU KNOW WHO - THE OLE DEVIL HIMSELF!!

Do you know the things or enemies that can keep

Us from having a WALK BY FAITH - AND INSTEAD HAVE A WALK BY SIGHT?? WHICH IS NO GOOD!

I’m gonna tell you several

Different Enemies that can stand in our way of

Having a Pure FAITH WALK WITH GOD!!!!

#1 – SELF

Are you surprised???

We are our own worst enemy when it comes to

Walking By Faith!!!

Now your probably gonna say PREACHER

HOW CAN THAT BE?

How am I my worst enemy when I’m fighting devils

And Demons and ETC. ETC. ETC.

WELL JUST LISTEN!!!!!

First of all with the least problem - We get an ATTITUDE!

Then We get INDEPENDENT - !

We become SELF RELIANT - !

We become SELF CONFIDENT - !

And then We become SELF SUFFICIENT - !

These are some of the greatest things hindering

Us having a WALK BY FAITH!!!

As long as you can do things without asking

God for a little help or a little guidance, most

Of us will go ahead and do it !!!!!

An old saying says most men don’t

Trust in God until they have to !!!!!

And we must trust and have faith ALWAYS!!

Now let Me just try to make this very plain and simple..

Most of the time Our Greatest Strengths can very easily Become our greatest weaknesses – If We rely and trust in Ourselves rather than relying and trusting in JESUS CHRIST!!!!

PSALM 147:10 & 11 SAYS

He delighteth not in the strength of the horse:

He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man

The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy. (loving kindness)

Here is some good news:

Our greatest weakness can become our greatest

Strength – As long as we humble ourselves and

Submit to JESUS CHRIST!!!!

TURN WITH ME TO :

2ND CORINTH 12:7-10

We can never Walk By Faith and Bear lasting fruit until

JOHN 15;5 becomes real to us---LISTEN

I am the vine, Ye are the branches; He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:

For without Me Ye can do nothing

This is one of my Favorite scriptures and was given to me by a very close and dear friend on a small cross statue
