“Have Faith in God”

“Have Faith in God”
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.

Having faith is not enough.  It’s all about who you have faith in.  Miracles don’t happen when we place faith in ourselves, they happen when we place faith in God.  Faith + God = Miracles.  We have to keep God in the equation.

Mark 11:20-23 (NIV) The Withered Fig Tree
In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.  Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!” “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.  ”I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

* We can’t do anything without God.  It bothers God when you don’t trust that He will do what He says.

John 15:5 (NIV)
I am the vine, you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in Him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
And without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

* We can’t become arrogant when we learn a few spiritual things.  Nothing can happen unless we put our faith in God.

* Never take credit for something the Lord did (ex. If God placed an idea in you, don’t say it was your idea).  When God knows you’re going to give Him the glory, He will keep blessing you. 

Romans 8:37 (NIV)
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Something to think about: Unload everything over to God.  Let the Lord take control over your career, your health, your marriage, your kids – everything!

    We should be mindful of this at ALL times. We MUST have faith in God. When we try to take things on in the arm of the flesh…then it becomes a burden which is to heavy for us to carry. But when we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth and we give Him the glory through everything we do and say…then we find out that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I will continue to be careful and mindful to have FAITH IN GOD. What about YOU?
