Miracles by Faith, Not Works

 

I’m calling a miracle as a supernatural intervention in our lives

Miracles do not make you holy, prove you are right with God or get you to heaven.

This is to teach how to receive WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS has been given to us.

 

Don’t wait until a storm hits to learn how to believe God for a miracle.

  • During a storm, emotions will cancel out your faith.

What are your religious rituals where you try to earn favor and blessing?

  • The religious thought that we earn blessings by doing things that pleases God keeps people from receiving.

Most in church today do not receive what is theirs because of their perceived places of God’s displeasure with them.

This causes them to not pursue.

“Well, I can’t just be bad and go ask and receive something from God.”

  • What about salvation???

 

Where does the sovereignty of God play in?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stop trying to earn it and start exercising your faith.

It is by faith that we receive.

  • We have authority over the demonic by faith
    • Some say they feel silly commanding demons
    • You’re supposed to feel silly screaming at monsters unless you believe by faith

How do you know you’re connected to God by salvation?

  • How do you know that you haven’t died?
  • What output is coming out of you.
  • The same old same ole is not new stuff

1 John 5:4 NAS For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith.

  • 1 John 5:4 Weymouth NT For every child of God overcomes the world; and the victorious principle which has overcome the world is our faith.

 

Jesus bought & paid for the following for you:

  • To know who He is with a greater growing understanding
  • To live healthy lives both physically and emotionally
  • To live in and from abundance
  • To be in peace no matter what the circumstances
  • To have joy bubbling up in us all the time
  • To be free of all forceful and harmful influences on the inside and outside of ourselves

 

STOP BEGGING GOD

  • Does the amount of prayer over an issue get you your answer?

What part does prayer play in obtaining your miracle?

 

 

Steps in receiving from God:

  1. Locate the promise in the word
  2. Receive it by faith without the need for any feeling or manifestation.
    1. Manifestation would be great if it happens right then.
  3. Pray for the removal of any blockage
  4. Reinforce your faith with more scriptures concerning what you’re believing for.
  5. Speak what you are believing for.
  6. If you fall out of faith and speak or believe that you won’t get what you’re believing for then repent and return to step #2.

 

 

PASSIVE DESIRE

You cannot be passive in pursuing what you’re believing for.

James 2:18-22 NAS 18 But someone may well say, "You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works." 19 You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder. 20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected

  • We grow our faith to maturity or perfection by using it.

We have a part in our miracle

  • Ephesians 3:20 NKJV Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us
    • Power (Greek) dunamis; force, miraculous power. KJV - ability
