"The Power of Faith" Part 2
"In the beginning God created (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
When it comes to our faith, we learned last week that in order to work with God, we have to work like God. Pastor Bray gave 3 steps to mountain-moving, world-changing faith. These 3 steps are PIC...Preparation, Incubation and Confession. Once we get with God and decide what we want, we need to get a title deed on that thing. We get with the Holy Spirit until we receive that "substance" or "evidence" that what we're believing for is ours. Then we begin to make the right confessions until we see it become a reality. This is a process. Its gonna take time. We must continue to speak in faith and release our faith through confession. We have to enter into the 4th dimension (the spiritual dimension) with God to see these things into being. God wants to speak and guide us into greater faith. As we get into agreement with God, we will see great things. Just as God speaks in the spiritual dimension, the devil is also speaking. He wants to speak fear, doubt, confusion, anxiety, failure, etc into your life. He wants to bring you into these wrong thoughts and emotions and cause you to make the wrong confessions. We must not allow the enemy a place in our thoughts or in our lives. God wants to give you the right words to confess over your life and those around you. Let's connect with God and and silence the voice of the enemy. Let's allow God to teach us how to create in the spirit and see great things in the natural.
1) What is something you're believing for?

4) What can you do the silence the voice of the enemy?
5) What right confessions do you need to begin making?
6) Would you like to invite Jesus into your heart today and confession Him as the Lord of your life?
