Focus Your Faith

What is faith?

The Word of God tell is that faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen (HEB 11:1). This means that you believe before you have actually received from God. Too many times, we ask and doubt, witholding our faith until it's in our hands. God wants to ask, and then act (and feel) as if we've already received.

Does this mean that you will get everything that you ask from Him? Certainly not! God knows that some of the things we ask for are not good for us. Because He is our loving Father, He will only supply us with every good thing we need. Faith means knowing that He always has our best interest on His mind, and in His heart.

Living the OPWP way in faith means continously searching the heart and mind of God so that you will know what to ask for.

Who needs faith?

Without faith, it is impossible to be well pleasing to Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. (HEB 11:6)

Why do you need faith?

All things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive. (MAT 21:22)

When is faith required?

In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one (EPH 6:16)

How do you get faith?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (PRO 3:5-6)
