3. FAITH OVERCOMES THE WORLD

NEXT: 1 Jn 5:4 This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
1 John 5:4 NIV - Anglicised for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
To do great things we have to leave the safe zone and enter the faith zone!

WE HAVE COVERED:
1. WITHOUT FAITH WE CANNOT PLEASE GOD

3. FAITH OVERCOMES THE WORLD
NEXT: 4. FAITH ACCESSES GOD’S POWER TO BRING ANSWERS TO PRAYER

4. FAITH ACCESSES GOD’S POWER TO BRING ANSWERS TO PRAYER

MARK 11:23-24 WHATEVER YOU ASK FOR IN PRAYER, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, AND IT WILL BE YOURS
Mark 11:23–24 NIV - Anglicised
“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. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
JAMES 1:6-8 BUT WHEN HE ASKS, HE MUST BELIEVE AND NOT DOUBT
James 1:6–8 NIV - Anglicised
But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
ROM 4:18-25 WHAT ABRAHAM ASKED FOR IN PRAYER, HE RECEIVED BECAUSE OF HIS UNWAVERING FAITH.
Romans 4:18–25 NIV - Anglicised
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
NEXT: HOW DO I GET FAITH?

HOW DO I GET FAITH?

HAVE YOU STRUGGLED WITH FAITH?
HAVE YOU BEEN CONFUSED ON HOW TO GET IT?
THE FIRST STEP IS TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE FAITH
NEXT: 1. EVERY MAN HAS BEEN GIVEN A MEASURE OF FAITH

1. EVERY MAN HAS BEEN GIVEN A MEASURE OF FAITH

ROM 12:3 IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MEASURE OF FAITH GOD HAS GIVEN YOU
Romans 12:3 NIV - Anglicised
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
GOD HAS PUT THE KNOWING OF HIS REALITY INSIDE OF EVERY PERSON
PS 14:1 THEREFORE ONLY A FOOL CAN SAY IN HIS HEART THAT THERE IS NO GOD.
Psalm 14:1 NIV - Anglicised
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no-one who does good.
ALSO PS 53:1 A FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART THERE IS NO GOD
YOU COULD NOT BE CALLED A FOOL IF YOU ARE NEVER TOLD OR UNDERSTOOD THE TRUTH –
YOU COULD BE CALLED IGNORANT, BUT NOT A FOOL
According to Webster’s dictionary, the DEFINITION OF FOOL IS (a person lacking in judgment or prudence) OR ( morally negligent) one who neglects or ignores truth
2. FAITH COMES FROM THE WORD OF GOD

2. FAITH COMES FROM THE WORD OF GOD

ROM 10:17 FAITH COMES BY HEARING
Romans 10:17 NIV - Anglicised
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
JAMES 1:18 THE WORD (TRUTH) GIVES US NEW BIRTH
James 1:18 NIV - Anglicised
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
ROM 1:16 THE WORD (GOOD NEWS) IT IS THE POWER UNTO SALVATION
Romans 1:16 NIV - Anglicised
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
3. FAITH IS THE BYPRODUCT OF RIGHT-THINKING

3. FAITH IS THE BYPRODUCT OF RIGHT-THINKING

ROM 12:1-2 TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND
Romans 12:1–2 NIV - Anglicised
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
COL 3:1-3 SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE
Colossians 3:1–3 NIV - Anglicised
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
PHIL 4:6-8 IF IT IS EXCELLENT OR PRAISEWORTHY – THINK ABOUT SUCH THINGS
Philippians 4:6–8 NIV - Anglicised
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
THERE ARE THOSE THAT ARE NOW SAYING THAT YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND IS UNAWARE 95% OF YOUR MINDS WORK
WE ARE ONLY AWARE OF 5% OF OUR BRAIN’S ACTIVITY
YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND MUST MEDITATE ON THE RIGHT THINGS FOR YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS TO BE MAGNETIZED TO THOSE RIGHT THINGS. HOW MUCH DOES YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS THINK AS COMPARED TO YOUR CONSCIOUS
YOUR CONSCIOUS IS LIKE A GARDENER PLANTING SEEDS
YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS IS LIKE THE SOIL THAT GROWS THOSE SEEDS
Prov 4:23 ABOVE ALL ELSE, GUARD YOUR HEART
Proverbs 4:23 NIV - Anglicised
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
THE ME I SEE IS THE ME I’LL BE
IF YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK, YOU WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU FEEL; IF YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU FEEL, YOU WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU ACT; IF YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU AT, YOU WILL CHANGE YOUR ENTIRE DESTINY.
MAKE A PLAN – WORK YOUR PLAN
PRAYER: YOUR COMMITMENT TO SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE

FATHER, I COMMIT MYSELF TODAY TO A LIFE OF RIGHT-THINKING— I CHOOSE TO SET MY MIND ON WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT ME.
