FAITH FOR HEALING with Pastor Charles Karuku

What is faith? (Heb 11:1)   Where does faith come from? (Rom 10:17)

THE BASIC FUNDAMENTALS OF FAITH

-The just shall live by faith: Faith is a way of living. (Heb 10:38)

-All things are possible with those who believe. (Mark 9:23)

-Faith is the victory that overcomes the world; faith is the key to victory. (1 John 5:4)

-Without faith it is impossible to please God. (Heb 11:6)

-God is moved only by faith. God is not moved by the need or by the tears. And he said to her,

“Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”

-Faith brings salvation and everything other blessing of God: Faith is the master key and the currency of exchange to receive from God.

 

FEAR NOT FOR GOD IS WITH US

The world is full of uncertainties. The political turmoil, wars, rumors of wars. Our lives are constantly under the impulses of the ups and downs. Unless we are truly anchored in the Lord, our hearts can begin to waver in the midst of the fear of what if.....In the midst of all these issues, we need to have a strong anchor where our hearts are stable and steadfast. Jesus calls us to let our hearts not be troubled.

Fear is a misplaced faith. It is when we build our lives on sinking sand and not on a solid rock. Fear does the same thing as faith would doand is a sign of shadows of death. It is like looking at the dashboard of a vehicle. It is a sign that your faith is low, anxiety high and patience low. That is the time to begin to build your faith and starve your doubts to death.

Fear does not add even a small piece of hair on your head. Jesus asked the question: Why worry?? God did not give us a spirit of fear. Fear is of the devil. FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. It is just a lie. Satan uses fear to intimidate.

MAKING A COMEBACK FROM A SETBACK

COURAGE UNDER FIRE
"I still got a fight in me"

In 2006 in Tucson, Arizona, Tim Boyle watched as a Chevrolet Camaro hit an 18-year-old Kyle Holtrust. The car pinned Holtrust, still alive, underneath. Boyle ran to the scene of the accident and lifted the Camaro off the teenager, while the driver of the car pulled him to safety.

In 1982, in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Angela Cavallo lifted a 1964 Chevrolet Impala from her son, Tony, after it fell off the jacks that had held it up while he worked underneath the car. Mrs. Cavallo lifted the car high enough and long enough for two neighbors to replace the jacks and pull Tony from beneath the car.

Marie "Bootsy" Payton was cutting her lawn in High Island, Texas when her riding mower got away from her. Payton's young granddaughter, Evie, tried to stop the mower, but was knocked underneath the still-running machine. Payton reached the mower and easily tossed it off her granddaughter, limiting Evie's injuries to four severed toes. Curious, Payton later tried to lift the mower again and found she couldn't move it.

HAPPY VALENTINES! HAPPY EVER AFTER OR JUST AN ILLUSION?

Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce, but what happens to the other fifty percent? Thirty percent end up enduring while twenty percent enter into a real happy and fulfilled life.

As they say, love is blind, but marriage is an eye-opener.
Q. Why marriage is like a violin?
A. After all the beautiful music is over, the strings are still attached.

Marriages are made in heaven. Then again, so are thunder, lightning, tornados, and hail.
Unfortunately, marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out. But it does not have to be that way.

Proverbs 24: 3-5
3 Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation],
4 And by knowledge shall its chambers [of every area] be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
5 A wise man is strong and is better than a strong man, and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power.

THE POINT OF SHIFTING THE MOMENTUM

These are game-changing moments when a shift takes place and things begin to go your way. One word from God can shift the momentum forever.

 I declare that the momentum has shifted. We are now on a comeback mode. Never mess with a person making a comeback. They are dangerous. They are violent. They had a brush with death and annihilation.

HOW TO MAKE A COMEBACK FROM A SETBACK
Finishing strong is impossible without divine assistance. Let God use your mistakes.

A setback can be because of our mistakes, failures and bad choices. Choices have consequences. We are not immune from bad choices and bad consequences. That is why we all need to understand that we can still finish strong and make a comeback from a setback.
