APRIL 2023 IMPARTATION SERVICE – SUNDAY, 16TH APRIL 2023
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): JUDE 1:3; LUKE 18:8
MESSAGE TOPIC: THE VALUE OF FAITH (1&2)
By: Dr Paul Enenche
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the necessity and the value of faith in the life of the child of God
THINGS TO NOTE:
1. In life, value and purpose define pursuit
Nothing is pursued until its value is perceived
2. Faith is so critical to the life of the child of God that it is the subject of enemy attack and contention (1 Tim. 6:12; Jude 1:3)
Faith will attract contention
3. Bible feat is the product of Bible faith
If we must see the results of yesteryears, we must release the belief of the people of yesteryears
4. Value and purpose bring distinction (Isa. 60:1)
If we see differently we act differently
5. Faith begins to become a rare commodity as we approach the end of the age (Luke 18:8)
6. A life not lived by faith has been left to fate (Hab. 2:4)
A life not lived by faith is left to chance and when you leave your life to chance, you leave your life no chance
THE NECESSITY OF FAITH:
1. Faith is necessary to life because the just shall live by faith (Hab. 2:4; Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38)
The quality and durability of life are anchored on faith
The devil tries to shake your faith so that he can shake your life
2. Faith is key to inheritance (Heb. 6:12; Matt. 9:29; Deut. 29:29; Heb. 11:6; Deut. 2:24)
What belongs to you in God is receivable by the force/instrumentality of faith
2a. Faith is needed to know that there is something belonging to you in God (Deut. 29:29; Heb. 11:6)
2b. Faith is needed to ward off all the forces of hell that try to deprive you of what is yours in God (Deut. 2:24)
3. Faith is the currency of the supernatural (Heb. 11:1-2, 32-34)
Faith is the currency with which supernatural results are obtained
Faith carries purchasing power in the realm of the Spirit; if God has it to release, it requires faith to receive.
To run out of faith is to run out of results, so determine to maintain your faith
4. Faith is key to life’s outcome and possibilities (Matt. 9:29; Mark 9:23)
Life’s outcome is anchored on faith
It is not unto you according to your family background, it is unto you according to your faith (Matt. 9:29)
Don’t go far from God, otherwise the worst in you manifests
In the face of faith, the devil is helpless against you.
Your faith must be in place so that your life is not functioning according to the will and wish of the devil
Your faith gives you the power of choice in the affairs of life
Every time you have a confrontation with a devil, never let that devil have the final say.
5. Faith is key to joy (1 Pet. 1:8; Rom. 5:2)
People of faith are excited, exciting and excitable people.
Faith makes you see the invisible so you dare the undareable, believe the incredible and do the impossible.
‘I cannot live without succeeding and I cannot die a failure; so it is either I succeed or I succeed!’
No matter how hard the devil tries, all things are working together for our good; you have been called to be glorified not shamified (Rom. 8:28-30)
The journey of faith says, if the devil could not stop God from saving you, the devil cannot stop Him from glorifying you (Rom. 8:30)
Don’t use anybody’s experience to decide what your experience should be, use the word of God to
decide what your experience should be!
6. Faith is key to health and wholeness (Matt. 15:26-28; Mark 5:30-34; Eph. 6:16)
Health and wholeness are facilitated in God
6a. Faith is a shield against the arrows of strange diseases and satanic afflictions (Eph. 6:16)
6b. Faith is a spiritual wire for the transmission of healing virtue
If faith is necessary for wholeness and health it means faith is necessary for life
Once accepted it is established once rejected it is ejected
7. Faith is key to supernatural supply (Matt. 6:11; Ps. 68:19; 27:13; Luke 5:4-5; John 2:5)
Goodies and supplies from the Lord are accessible by faith
The limit of your faith is the limit of your supplies and results
– Any area of your life, business and endeavour where you asking God for supernatural supplies, I call it done!
8. Faith is key to power (Acts 6:8; 1Pet. 1:5; Mark 5:30; Acts 14:8-11)
Faith is the switch of power; when you are full of faith you must be full of power, you cannot be full of faith and not be full of power (Acts 6:8)
The deployment of faith is the deployment of power
If you don’t want to be a powerless Christian, build your Faith
9. Faith sets the limit of destiny (Heb. 11:3; Mark 10:46-48)
It takes your Faith to frame your world; faith is what determines the borders, boundaries and barriers of your life. If the world you live in is choking you, expand it by faith.
If where you are is too tight, it is not the fault of the world you are living in, it is the fault of your faith; upgrade your faith and you will upgrade your life.
The limit of your life is not determined by who gave birth to you, your background or environment; the limit of your life is defined by your faith.
10. Faith is key to rest (Heb. 4:3; Mark 4:36-39; Ps. 46:1-3; 9-10; Acts 12:6-7)
To believe is to enter rest.
Faith imparts rest, assurance, confidence and stability while faithlessness imparts anxiety, worry, restlessness, hopelessness and despair.
1. The ship was full of water but didn’t sink
2. The Master was inside water but didn’t wake.
This is called the peace of God that does not make sense (Mark 4:36-39).
Why should Peter sleep without fear? (Acts 12:6-7)
1. God Who did it before has not died
2. Angels are not in short supply
3. I know what He would do again if I remember what He did before.
Give the building of your faith all the effort you have got (Rom. 4:20; 10:17)
Do all you can to build your faith; do everything you can to keep your faith healthy and alive
If the devil cannot stop your justification, he can never stop your glorification; We have not been justified to be shamified we have been justified to be glorified (Rom. 8:28-30)
When your faith is built there is automacity of response
Drunkards don’t rehearse drunkenness; it comes naturally out of liquor
