30 Days of Faith

My Challenge to You:

  • When life knocks you down, are you willing to get back up?

 

If your best days are in the past, you are not truly living your life for today or the future.

 

3 Keys for Perseverance

  1. Championship mindset

  2. Relentless desire

  3. Refusal to be phased by Rejection

 

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? - Romans 8:28-31

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path. - Proverbs: 3:5-6 

 

3 Keys to Succeed in Life:

  1. Faith

  2. Consistency

  3. Grit

 

When you live your life to serve the Lord, you reap the greatest rewards.

“They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee. When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time, this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs.” Luke 8:26-27

“Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left.” Luke 8:37

“Without faith, it’s impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6

“Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? “Consider how the wildflowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Luke 12:22-34 

 

Why should I live by faith?  

1. God values me.

2. God promises to provide for my needs. 

  • Faith is a heart thing not a head thing

  

How do I live by faith?  TRUST

1. Take my problems to Jesus.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 

 

2. Rest in His promises.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32 

 

3. Understand God’s sovereign timetable.

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” 2 Peter 3:8 

 

4.  Seek God’s priorities ahead of everything else.

Seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Luke 12:31

 

5.  Treasure generosity over hoarding wealth and possessions.

 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

  1. I won’t lose heart no matter what it looks like.

  2. I won’t quit no matter what it feels like.

  3. I will fix my faith on the good future that God has for me.

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:1-10


1. Faith in my eternal destiny. (v. 1)

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling.


2. Faith in our new glorified body. (v. 4)

For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.


3. Faith in the presence of the Holy Spirit. (v. 5)

Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. Philippians 1:6


4. Faith that I can actually please God. (v. 9)  

For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.


5. Faith in a final judgment by a just God. (v. 10) 

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 


God doesn’t judge us by what he doesn’t give us.
