Asking in Faith!

Scripture reading for July 28th: 2nd Chronicles 24, 2nd Kings 12, Psalm 50, Matthew 9

Key Scriptures: Matthew 9:27-30 “And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed Him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When He entered the house, the blind men came to Him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.””

Jesus had just raised a dead girl to life and healed a woman who touched His garment of 12 years of hemorrhaging. As He moved on, two blind men followed crying out in faith to Jesus for their healing, using the divine title, ‘Son of David.’ Jesus asked them if they believed that He was able to do what they were asking and they replied in the affirmative. One touch from the Master Jesus and a Word brought instant healing! He sent them away warning them to tell no one!

Psalm 50:15 “. . . and call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me.”

Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe that You can do all things and that I bring You glory when I call on You for help, healing, or deliverance. Help me to humbly ask for help as I labor restoring Your House.

2nd Chronicles 24:13 “So those who were engaged in the work labored, and the repairing went forward in their hands, and they restored the House of God to its proper condition and strengthened it.”

Faith and prayer move mountains!

Scripture reading for January 29th:  Matthew 21

Key scriptures for over-comers: Matthew 21:20-22 “When the disciples saw this, they were amazed.  “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked.  Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, “God, throw yourself into the sea, and it will be done.  If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.””

Jesus had cursed a fig tree that had no fruit and the next day the disciples marveled that it was dead from the roots. They asked Jesus how this could happen.  He gave them a simple but profound answer that would enable them to live as over-comers in their calling as disciples and apostles.  Having faith in God and His ability to do what He is showing you is the key to receiving answers to prayer.  Jesus told them that they could not only curse a fig tree but speak to a mountain and see it moved!   God would honor their faith and their asking Him for the ability and results that they needed for their ministry.

Observations for over-comers:  Without faith we cannot please God!  When we ask Him in faith for our needs, we honor God and He delivers!  “Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psalm 2:8) “and call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor Me.”  (Psalm 50:15)

Faith, love, and authority!

Scripture reading for January 12th:  Matthew 8

Key Scripture:  Matthew 8:13  “Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go, It will be done just as you believed it would.”  And his servant was healed at that very hour.”  

Rome had placed units of their army in Judea and Galilee to keep peace and protect the land from insurrection.  A Roman centurion was a commander of a hundred men and was under direction of military officers.  The centurion in this story came to Jesus out of deep concern for a servant of his that was paralyzed.   He had evidently heard about Jesus’ ability to heal and came believing in Him.  After Jesus agreed to go and heal the servant, the centurion told Him not to bother coming but to just speak the word!  Jesus was amazed at this Gentile’s faith!  He simply told him to go and it would be done as he believed!  The results were immediate!

As we walk through this year, we will face many difficult situations and attacks of the enemy against us and our loved ones.  Jesus is honored as we call on Him and believe in the authority of His powerful Word!  Let’s make Jesus marvel at our faith each day as we ask and believe for the miraculous!

Observations for over-comers:  Let your compassion for hurting people move you to ask Jesus to heal and to claim His Word as authority over the attacks of Satan!  “. . .and call on Me in the day of trouble;  I will deliver you, and you will honor Me.”  (Psalm 50:15)
