Good morning brother,

Day three topic: Growing in your faith. Discussion of Matthew 8 where Jesus mentions who has great Faith, and who has little Faith. Can God work with a-little faith? Does God need a lot of faith? We need to grow in the knowledge of Christ. How can a relationship with Jesus grow our faith? How does faith come by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

Faith means to believe something with absolute certainty.

There is no in between you either don’t believe or believe.

Some promises of God are easy to believe others are not.

The difficult things take much faith in God. If you have little faith you don’t believe more than what you can see.

Great faith is not a large amount of faith or a high percentage of faith. Great faith simply believes truths that are difficult to believe.

Jesus said don’t worry about your daily needs? God will care for you!

Live a life of so much faith that you set up an impossible altar for God to display his power!

There will be times of faith where we must carry the Cross. His blood and water is enough. Obedience better than sacrifice. Jesus on the Cross disappointed the disciples. But God had a better plan for them and for us. More than what we could ask or think.

There is a spiritual gift of faith. That’s awesome.

Great faith will result in amazing things in your life.

LORD help me to believe!

Have faith in God! That He will do what He says. Pray for our nation for God to pour out his Spirit!

Let’s not join the world that is against the LORD but join those who are with him.

But in Matthew 8:10, Jesus was impressed by the great faith of a Gentile. He said, “I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”

In Matthew 8:10, Jesus praises a Roman Centurion for having great faith.

What did the Centurion believe that few others believe? He believed two advanced truths that are quite rare for people to believe (even today).

First, he believed in his own lack of merit. Though he was courteous, humble, and a good man, though he loved the Jewish people and built a synagogue for them, he knew he didn’t deserve anything from God, or from Jesus Christ. Despite his high standing and all he had done, he knew he was unworthy to meet with Jesus (Matt 8:8).

But in Matthew 8:10, Jesus was impressed by the great faith of a Gentile. He said, “I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”

The second thing the Centurion believed is that healing could be done at a distance. He believed in the divine authority of Jesus, even over sickness and disease through space and time. He likened Jesus to a military commander who simply had to give orders for them to be followed (Matt 8:9).

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ Roman's 10:17

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

2 Peter 3:18

You know you are maturing when you are believing in greater things.

Big tankers need gas to run. When we are saved we have the strength to live a faithful life. We don’t have to run on empty and our strength.

Come to throne in faith to obtain mercy and grace.

It takes great faith to pray for someone. Little faith is avoiding to pray for anyone.

Faith is like your first time in gym. You started with 25 pounds. But you have raised it to 50 pounds. You grew in believing in more weight and confidence. Jesus wants us to build up our faith.

Faith is not magic. It’s takes time and effort to pursue God in the knowledge of Christ.

Prayer should be our first resort. It takes time to understand that.

Push analogy- God told the person to push a rock down but wasn’t able to, the devil came to destroy his faith. The rock was not mean to be pushed by you but by God. But look how strong you have become pushing that rock.

Help us LORD to start with the little and boldness comes through our struggle and the pushing.

Pray until something happens.

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.

Hebrews 11:1‭-‬3

“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”

‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬-‭13‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭24‬ ‭

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭15‬-‭16‬ ‭

“Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭25‬:‭8‬-‭10‬

The terms “Great faith” and “Little faith” simply mean this: Some truths are easy to believe while others are difficult. If you believe something that is difficult to believe, then you have great faith. If you do not believe something that is relatively easy to believe, then you have no faith.  If you believe something that is relatively easy to believe, but not something difficult to believe you have little faith.

Great faith and little faith have nothing to do with the size, amount, or degree of faith.

The terms “great faith” and “little faith” describe the difficulty of the truths that are believed.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18

So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Col 1:10

Thank you for another great day of Zoom Battle Prayer!
