Speak Your Faith

Speak Your Faith    by Daniel N. Brown

God wants you to live an abundant and prosperous life. But,
please dont think the devil is going to just stand by and watch
while God outrageously prospers you. The devils whole purpose is
to kill, steal, and destroy. (John 10:10)

Well, if thats the case, what are we to do? Ephesians 6:11 says,
Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil. Truth, righteousness,
preparation to share the gospel, faith, salvation, and the Word
of God is the armor. Verse 16 says, Above all, take the shield
of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the enemy.

Faith is a shield. When the devils lies come at you, you must
know what Gods Word says concerning your circumstances in order
to quench the devils lies.

Unfortunately, too many Christians are ignorant of Gods Word, so
they operate in a spirit of fear, which is the opposite of faith.
We cannot operate in a spirit of faith and a spirit of fear at
the same time. We will flow in one or the other. We must oppose
the spirit of fear and close the door on the devil so we may move
forward with Gods plan for our lives.

As Faith is our shield (our defense), Gods Word is our Sword
(our offense).

Now, we must not only believe Gods Word, but we must speak it.
Our words are containers of power. When all hell is coming
against us, we need to hold fast to the confession of our faith
and say what the Word says in light of our situation instead of
what the circumstances look like or how they make us feel.

Not speaking the positive report of Gods Word is the reason why
so many believers fall short of receiving Gods best. 2
Corinthians 4:13 says, I believed, and therefore have I spoken.

By speaking negative words we are in agreement with the devil.
The door then becomes open for him to produce the very conditions
you are speaking. Instead, speak the promises of God, get into
agreement with Him, and you will eventually see Gods promises
fulfilled in your life.

Have Faith
by Daniel N. Brown Are you believing God for something and see no evidence of anything taking place? It can be frustrating. Especially when you feel like you are in great need for God to act NOW!I used to wonder what God was doing when I needed Him most. I certainly didnt see Him doing what I thought He should be doing. But, you know, we are to live by faith, not by sight. Hebrews 11:1 says, Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.I believe that if we...

Live by Faith Not by Sight
by Daniel N. Brown Do you feel like you are experiencing roadblocks to your dreams? Do you feel like you are striving for something but it just seems to elude you? Maybe you are a little discouraged and confused about what God wants for you. Do you wonder if God has a plan for your life? And if He does, why does it remain unfulfilled? There may be a multitude of thoughts running through your mind as you continue day in and day out, repeating the same mundane tasks over and over again,...

Fight the Good Fight
by Daniel N. Brown The Bible says the just shall live by faith, and without faith, we cannot please God. (Romans 1:17; Hebrews 11:6) Operating in faith is taking God at His Word by believing what He says is true. We can know that we believe what He says is true if we are acting like it is, for faith without works is dead. (James 2:20) Sometimes we can become so weary in waiting for our dreams to come to pass that it becomes discouraging. Just like I said last week, the devil will not just...

Praying with Expectation
by Daniel N. Brown Did you know that expectation is the key to receiving all the good things God has for you? It is written, Whatsoever things you desire when you pray, believe you receive them and you shall have them. (Mark11:24)Believe you receive, or expect! What good does it do to pray without expecting God to answer? You might as well be talking to a tree. The Bible says, Without faith, it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is...

Where Will You Be in 5 Years
? by Daniel N. Brown Where will you be in 5 years? Have you thought about it? Ive heard it said that in 5 years you will be the sum total of the books you read and the people you associate with. What books are you reading and what kind of people are you associating with? I have a friend who is into a particular soap opera and he says it doesnt affect him emotionally. I disagree very strongly. I know this soap well, for I was addicted to it myself! After watching it every day, for about 6...

Believing Prayer
by Daniel N. Brown Have you noticed that most of us have been raised to not believe in positive outcomes? At the same time, weve been taught to believe in negative outcomes. Wheres the logic in that? How much more effort does it take to believe in garbage than in positive things?Believing in the positive is vital to our success. If we could only believe that everything will work out and trust that what we want will happen, wed have great results. Life would change in ways wed never...

How to Hear from God
by Daniel N. Brown We want to hear from God so that we may be led to pursue the right things. Unfortunately, there are always three voices in every ones head at any given time; Gods voice, the devils voice, and the voice of our own flesh. So, how are we to be sure to hear from God with all the noise going on? It really is very simple. If we want to hear from God, we need to shut up the other two. So, how do we do that? First of all, the devil is easy to shut up. Psalm 22:3 says, But thou...

The Spirit of Offence
by Daniel N. Brown I believe the spirit of offence is on the rise. Jesus said in the last days many will be offended as the love of the church will grow cold. (Matthew 24:10) I see so many people majoring on minor issues such as whether or not we should speak in tongues, whether or not we should baptize babies, whether or not we should prophesy, and a bunch of other stuff that shouldnt be causing us to gossip, get upset, and run off looking for another church. 1 Thessalonians 4 says,...

A Strong Anchor
by Daniel N. Brown Stories have been told about the only thing that saved the lives of the people aboard a ship in a storm was a strong anchor. But, there are also stories of those who perished when their anchor did not hold.Luke and the Apostle Paul were aboard a ship that was tossed by a raging storm. Luke writes in Acts 27:29, about the actions of the crew, Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight.It is written,...

Are you facing some challenges in your life
Are you facing some challenges in your life? by Daniel N. Brown Are you facing some challenges in your life right now? If so, rejoice! Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)We all know that athletes need endurance training for physical stamina and mental toughness. When game time arrives, he or she will be ready to...
