Blessable - Week 3 - A Blessable Faith Part 2
Opening Scripture: Matthew 17:19-20, Mark 11:20-25
2022 Mandate: Gather, Grow, Go
Read Hebrews 11-12:2
I do not believe the greatest miracles were done in the Bible. I think they're reserved for now.
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.”
One of the most significant missteps of faith is that we apply faith to an attribute, not the Almighty.
We must learn to have faith in God, not the attribute of the need we desire fulfilled.
If a Blessable Foundation is doing what you know, what is Blessable Faith?
Blessable Faith is a framework. So when a foundation of Presence, Hearing, and Obeying is in place now, we can start building on the foundation with a framework.
Giant impacts are usually the result of small, consistent acts of faith, not leaps of fantasy.
Your faith is asking, "What have you done for me lately?"
Here is your Framework for Blessable Faith:
- Inspiration - Inspiration leads to imagination, then put through the inspection of intercession.
- Revelation - Revelation is your receipt of belief. When revelation arrives, it is more real than the physical.
- Manifestation - Between revelation and manifestation is where faith takes place.
Inspiration - Inspiration leads to imagination, then put through the inspection intercession.
Being Blessable is positioning yourself, not profiting for yourself.
We want to be blessed rather than live a Blessable lifestyle most of the time. This is proven because asking for forgiveness occurs when we commit sin, not the conception of sin.
Inspiration must be birthed from the Word, not your wants.
As inspiration from the Word occurs, God lets your imagination build on the inspiration. This is Godly dreaming.
If the inspiration does not move to the imagination, we will never get the complete picture of your dream. I say "your dream" because when God gave you the inspiration, He gave you his dream for you. He has put it in your possession. Own it!
Your intercession of the imagination shifts your motives from selfish to sanctified. Here is why most steps of faith stop before they are even taken; we have confused inspiration and imagination with faith.
Revelation - Revelation is your receipt of belief.
When revelation arrives, it is more real than the physical. Intercession is what moves the dream from inspiration to revelation. It is only in the revelation that it becomes real.
Here is the danger; you can have knowledge about it but no revelation of it.
Say this - I NEED A REVELATION!
Revelation is your receipt of belief.
Have you ever ordered anything online? When you clicked "purchase," you received a receipt. The receipt is proof that what you bought is on its way. You don't have the product yet even though you own it; it is real and yours.
It is between revelation and manifestation that Faith must take its place.
Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Faith doesn't come by reading; it comes by revelation. You must go back to the source of inspiration to fuel the revelation that keeps the vehicle of faith going until you reach the destination.
Our job is to keep fueling our faith until the destination becomes manifestation.
If the devil cannot destroy you, he will try to distract you.
Faith is not eliminating the distractions but focusing your attention.
Faith isn’t about going; it is about coming. Coming to the Father, where we “Have Faith in God.”
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
