Pastor's Thoughts

                            The laws of faith----Feb 7,2015

 In understanding the laws of faith, we need to understand a simple fact--Everything is governed by laws. The laws of aviation was in effect since the world began but man discovered it in the early 1900's. The same is true when God. God's word says that he hath given us all things that pertains unto life. (I Peter 1:3) We do not have to beg, grovel or persuade God. Truth of the matter is that if you are, truly, born again, you have it already. All you need to do is ask and receive it in the spirit.
The point to address is how to become kingdom minded? We are children of the king. God is our father and we are his children. In a king's court, there is a proper way to conduct business. A proper protocol, if you will, is necessary. First, we need to renew our minds. Our minds are like computers and has data. Some is good and some is bad. In order to understand God and how he works, we need to learn how he thinks.
Renewing the mind takes work. It is like building a house. Many beloved brethren do not even take time to spend in the word and when troubles and challenges come their way, they fall apart. We need to learn how to build our house and be prepared for the day of trouble...because it is coming and you better be prepared! As good soldiers in Christ, we need to learn how to take back what is,rightfully, ours and enjoy the spoils of battle. Always remember this---The greater the battle, the greater the spoils.
So, spend some time with the Lord. Spend some time praising him and enjoying his presence. Above all, spend some time meditating in the word. Take some scriptures that will build up your faith. Remember, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. As you hear God's promises, you are building your faith for the day of battle. Don't have time to look up scriptures? Here are a couple of links that I use to help me. I trust that they will do the same for you. God bless.....
