Because the word of God is alive and living, it meets you in your moments, speaks to you in peace and is a comfort to the soul.

You will find that this faith works! As you walk out your faith, circumstances dim beneath God’s grace and mercy.

He’ll meet you right where you are, giving you strength no man gave and no man can take away.

He reveals what’s on the other side of experience, your next best step as He goes before us, the good shepherd and the keeper of our souls.

How are we to sing in a strange land unless by faith and this, her wisdom grants us understanding that we too someday will call heaven home?

Because this faith works! Continue to walk out your faith that others may see God’s glory uplifting and edifying one another that you will grow strong in faith, and remember faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Therefore as every man has been given a measure of faith, we must cultivate ourselves in His word by a continuum discipline.

Each day is our best day to grow in faith and be thankful that God has breathed upon us.

Let today be one of faith and opportunity that God has beset us and prepared the way.

The best is yet to come! “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.” Hebrews 11:1-2 (KJV)

Through faith, dreams are fulfilled, goals accomplished and most of all, lives are saved.

Then Peter said unto them: “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” Acts 2:38-39 (KJV).

This faith works! “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized, and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” Acts 2:41 (KJV).

I am thankful to be blessed to see my life in retrospect, and how God kept me even though my life wasn’t tried and true.

I almost cringe at the borders I treaded so closely to, the same boundaries I see that grace kept me from falling into the deep where there would be no turning point.

The love of God is precious and unfathomable, and His reach is a receptive heart to His will and to His way. There’s no place He can’t bring you from. Awe has been and is my expression of the wondrous work He has done in my life. I am intrigued and excited because I stood through the storms of life, trials, and tribulations, anointed by His touch that has molded me unto the day that I might sing His praises and walk as a vessel and living example of an instrument of His love.

These are the measures and degrees of separation that are the defining moments in my life that now show proof that others can be healed, delivered and set free from the bondage of sin and shame; the price of the world’s values as it is not designed to take care of your heart, but exploit every emotion your heart and soul can carry and the same becomes the enemy of the mind when you’re awakened.

Ministry is giving a little of a lot so that each one is a part of a whole body that is edified and God is glorified.

We as Christians are to take a posture in our spirit that has tenacity and the forwardness to empower others in Christ and the life we now live.

To be bold and beautiful with love and compassion are attributes well suited for the army of the Lord that the saints speak up and tell what God has done in their lives.

I understood in a moment’s time the essence of my thoughts, which spoke to my heart and spirit what it means when we give our problems, circumstances, situations, cares to the Lord.

For the very first time it dropped in my spirit this revelation, although I’d heard it many times, that we should cast our care upon Him for He cares for us. I Peter 5:7 (KJV)

This was the vision I felt; when I give God what is troubling me, He in return takes my problem and spiritually fights for me.

This means no matter who did it or what it physically looks like, God breaks it down to its root cause before it physically manifested itself, whetherit was a person, place or thing that the devil used.

This resonated with me that I then had only one job and that is to have faith in God.

Why? Because this faith works!

When we understand this in our spirit man, change occurs and doors are opened that God is working and we are now in the proper position to see what eyes have not seen.

This is the unknown, this is our faith growing in expectancy and pleasing God because the forwardness of our heart’s intent is based on seeing what God is doing on our behalf.

This is called working faith!

As we continue to grow in Christ and in life, many layers of understanding are added to our person; as importantly may we share our findings, revelatory knowledge/nuggets with one another elevating each one, a stepping stone to a greater walk in Christ.

This is the rhythm of the gospel character and the sound of the word of God exemplified in your life.
