      YOU PROBABLY HEARD OF THE PHRASE "WAY TO GO." TEENAGERS PROBABLY USE THAT PHRASE MORE THAN ANY ONE ELSE. IN SPORTS, IF SOMEONE HITS A HOMERUN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, SOMEONE WILL YELL "WAY TO GO." WELL THE WAY OF FAITH IS GOD'S WAY TO GO & HIS WAY IS THE BEST WAY. NOTICE VERSE 38 AGAIN, GOD SAYS, "IF YOU DRAW BACK FROM THE LIFE OF FAITH, HIS SOUL WILL HAVE NO PLEASURE IN YOU". ROM 1:17

      I. WHOSE FAITH ARE WE TALKING ABOUT, OURS?

                  A. YES & NO. MARK 11:22 MY BIBLE HAS A LITTLE FOOT NOTE ABOUT THAT VERSE & IT SAYS THAT IT SHOULD BE TRANS. HAVE THE FAITH OF GOD. OTHER TRANS. SAY HAVE THE GOD KIND OF FAITH.

                              1. (HAB 2:4) Behold, his soul {which} is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (KJV)

                              2. (ROM 12:3) For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think {of himself} more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. (KJV) OUR FAITH WAS GIVEN TO US

BY GOD.

                  B. HEB 12:2 MANY PEOPLE LOOK TO THEIR FAITH FOR THE ANSWER & YES, WE DO HAVE FAITH, BUT WHAT OUR FAITH IS, IS THAT WE HAVE FAITH IN THE LORD, FAITH THAT HE WILL MEET OUR NEEDS, FAITH THAT HE WILL HEAL OUR BODIES. 1John 5:14‑15

                              1. CONFIDENCE IS FAITH ‑‑ FAITH IN HIM.  2. THIS VERSE TELLS US THAT WE HAVE TO ASK ACCORDING TO HIS WILL.

                                          a. WELL, WHAT'S HIS WILL Matthew 8:2‑3

                                          b. IT WAS THE LORD'S WILL FOR HIM TO BE HEALED.

                                          c.  3JO 1:2

                                          d. I'M TOTALLY CONVINCED THAT THE THAT WE COULD SAY THAT THE HOLY GHOST WAS SAYING, "I WILL above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

                              3. GOD WILLS WHAT HE HAS PROMISED IN HIS WORD. THAT'S ONE REASON WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO READ GOD'S WORD.

                                          a. WE NEED TO PUT OUR TRUST, OUR DEPENDENCE, & OUR FAITH IN JESUS. JESUS NEVER FAILS.

                                          b. YOU MIGHT BE THINKING, CAN YOU BACK THAT UP W/ SCRIPTURE. SURE I CAN. (HEB 13:5) Be ye free from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee. (ASV)

      II. WE NEED TO HOLD ON TO THE PROMISES. HEB 10:23

                  A. GOD TELLS US TO HOLD ON TO OUR PROFESSION OF OUR FAITH. ? WHAT IS THE PROFESSION OF OUR FAITH? IT'S THE PROMISES OF GOD.

                              1. YOU PROBABLY HAVE HEARD OF PEOPLE SAYING, "JUST STAND ON THE WORD OF GOD." ? WHAT DO THEY MEAN BY STAND ON THE WORD OF GOD? 2CO 1:24

                              2. (2CO 1:20) For all the promises of God in him {are} yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. (KJV)

WE NEED TO KEEP ON HOLDING ON TO THE PROMISES OF GOD. KEEP ON STANDING ON HIS WORD. EVEN WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR IN DEFEAT & LOST THE VICTORY. Ephesians 6:13‑14

                                          a. THE BIBLE TELLS US TO KEEP ON STANDING. (HEB 6:12) That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (KJV)

(1JO 5:4) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, {even} our faith.  (KJV) IF YOU KEEP ON STANDING IN FAITH YOU WILL GET THE VICTORY.

                  B. 2COR 2:4 KEEP ON STANDING IN FAITH, FAITH IN THE LORD'S ABILITY & WILLINGNESS, & HE WILL ALWAYS CAUSE YOU TO TRIUMPH. THAT'S VICTORY.

                              1. MAR 11:24 THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED THE PRAYER OF FAITH

                              2. MANY CHRISTIANS TRY EVERYTHING ELSE BEFORE THEY TRY TO EXERCISING THEIR FAITH THRU THEIR PRAYER.

                              3. PRAYER SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING THEY DO.

                  C. THE PRAYER OF FAITH IS THE WAY TO GO. PRAYER, PLUS FAITH, BRINGS RESULTS. IT BRINGS THE VICTORY. IT BRINGS THE VICTORY WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE FAILS.

      III. THERE IS A POWER TO FAITH 1PE 1:5 AS YOU BEGAN TO OPERATE IN FAITH THE POWER OF GOD IS RELEASED.

                  A. WHEN WE GO IN THE POWER OF GOD, WE GO IN GOD'S POWER.  PSA 71:16
