As a Christian believer, faith is “at work” for me,
even if I don’t immediately feel or see it to be.
After issuing a prayer that is heartfelt and fervent,
I can always count on faith to be my “faithful” servant.
Jesus spoke to the fig tree, then went on His way,
knowing that poor fig tree had seen its final day.
Likewise, as disciples, in “speaking to” matters at hand,
we can expect things to respond to our authority and command.
So, when doubt tries to discredit the promises God has said,
remember that your active faith is “at work” instead.
Faith is our servant, the invisible working force;
and the finisher of it is Christ, its author and source.
P. A. Oltrogge
“…and immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?'” Matthew 14:31 NKJV
“…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith….”
from Hebrews 12:2 NKJV
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Luke 10:19 NKJV
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4
Thank You, Lord, for my answer to prayer–
Your faithfulness to Your Word, and to me.
I believe I received when I prayed,
so that proof, I’m expectant to see.
P. A. Oltrogge
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatsoever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Words of Jesus in Mark 11:23-24
“And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
“The horse is prepared against the day of battle; but safety is of the Lord.” Proverbs 21:31
an excerpt from “The Power of Jesus’ Blood” February, 2017
Surely, the blood of Jesus “applied” today protects against adverse things;
and every Christian can claim that blood covering for the safety and security it brings.
