SMALL FAITH in God makes a BIG DIFFERENCE in life!
2 Kings 6:13-18 (NIV)
Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city. 15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha asked.
Your greatest VICTORIES are on the other side of your FAITH!
1. The enemy may SURROUND you, but he cannot STOP you.
That which OUTNUMBERS YOU does not OUTNUMBER GOD!
James 4:7 (NIV)
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
STAND on the TRUTH of God, so you don’t FALL for the LIES of the ENEMY!
2. BREAKTHROUGH comes by OPERATING in the SPIRITUAL not the PHYSICAL.
If you are AWARE of God’s PRESENCE, then what is THREATENING you does not INTIMIDATE you!
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (NIV)
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
You can’t fight a SPIRITUAL BATTLE with PHYSICAL WEAPONS!
3. When you CALL on God, God will ANSWER you.
What you PRAY FOR reflects what you BELIEVE about God!
Psalm 46:1 (NIV)
God is your refuge and strength, an ever-present HELP in time of trouble.
Psalms 121 (NIV)
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and Earth.
Jesus is THE answer not AN answer!
