The character of Overcomers
Psalm 85:8-11 John 16:33
Intro: Faith in God and the peace of God is synonymous because I must have faith in God to have access into His peace. There is a second part to this faith walk that most people will miss, that is not do I have faith in God but I also must do continually those things that are pleasing in His sight!.
God’s peace is consistent with who He is, “He is our peace”
I rest in the divine providence of God no matter how challenging life may be… Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content…Romans 8:28
Faith makes things possible not inevitably easy. Faith acts like it’s so even when it’s not so that it might be so. It reaches into nothing and holds on until something materializes!!!
Faith is the vehicle that will get the promises of God to my need!!
The word of commands the just to live by faith, 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
You fight this fight by speaking faith filled words….Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
