POWER COMMUNION SERVICE – 20TH FEBRUARY 2019
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): ROMANS 4:19-20
MESSAGE TOPIC: THE STRENGTH OF FAITH
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding what it takes to build strong faith.
Faith is measured by size and also measured by strength.
IN TERMS OF SIZE, THERE IS:
a. Little faith (Matt. 6:30; 8:26; 14:31)
b. Great faith (Matt. 8:10; 15:28)
IN TERMS OF STRENGTH, THERE IS:
i. Weak faith (Rom. 4:19; 14:1)
ii. Strong faith (Rom. 4:20)
The strength of your faith will determine the quality of your victory
The strength of your faith affects the size of your results.
It is not possible to have great results with little faith or little results with great faith.
RAW MATERIALS TO BUILD THE STRENGTH OF FAITH:
1. The Word of God (Rom. 10:8, 17; Heb. 11:3; John 1:1-5; Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38; Acts 28:3-7)
This refers to the written word you read in the Bible
You cannot be wordless and be faith-filled.
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE WORD OF GOD AND THE STRENGTH OF FAITH:
i. Jesus Christ was the Word personified so He walked in the realm of faith unquantified (John 1:1-5)
ii. Paul the Apostle, a prolific man of the Word who wrote approximately half of the New Testament, was a man of raw faith (Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38; Acts 28:3-7)
There is a realm of faith you will walk in that people looking at you will think you are not normal anymore because the things they do against you will not work.
Your conviction can terminate affliction without intercession
2. The Voice of God (Rom. 10:8, 17; Gen. 12:1-5; Ex. 3:1-10; Acts 27:22-26; John 10:27-28)
This refers to the Voice you hear while studying the Word, in meditation and encounters in the dream.
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE VOICE OF GOD AND THE STRENGTH OF FAITH:
i. Abraham, the father of faith was an expert in hearing God which launched him into the realm of drastic results (Gen. 12:1-5)
ii. Moses’ access to the Voice of God built in him the faith to confront pharaoh and deliver the children of Israel from captivity (Ex. 3:1-10)
Inside your spiritual authority is your spiritual receptivity
There is something you can hear from God that will turn your chicken heart into an eagle’s heart.
iii. Paul the Apostle’s access to the Voice of God in the midst of the storm gave him the faith for both his survival and the survival of those with him (Acts 27:22-26)
To hear the Voice of God is not a luxury; it guarantees that you are not easily wastable.
CAUTION: Be sure that the Voice bears witness with the Word of God and the Spirit of God
3. The Acts of God (Luke 1:34-38; 1Sam. 17:37; Ps. 119:99; Ex. 14:21; Josh. 3:15-16; 1Kings 17:19-21; 2Kings 4:32-35; Mark 5:40-42; Acts 9:40-41)
The testimonies of the acts of God are raw materials for the building of strong faith in God.
Meditating and thinking on that acts of God have the capacity of building strong faith
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ACTS OF GOD AND THE STRENGTH OF FAITH:
i. Joshua’s faith of parting the River Jordan must have been influenced by his observation of the parting of the Red Sea (Ex. 14:21; Josh. 3:15-16)
ii. Elisha’s faith and approach for the raising of the dead must have been inspired by Elijah’s action of raising the dead (1Kings 17:19-21; 2Kings 4:32-35)
iii. Peter’s faith for the raising of the dead must have been influenced by his observation of how Jesus raised Jairus’ daughter (Mark 5:40-42; Acts 9:40-41)
The acts of God have reproductive capability
The acts of God inflame the faith of men
4. The Love of God (Gal. 5:6; 1Cor. 13:7; Matt. 14:14; 2Kings 4:22-30; Luke 7:2-9)
Love is a strengthener and potentiator of faith.
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE LOVE OF GOD AND THE STRENGTH OF FAITH:
i. Jesus Christ was love personified so He became faith exemplified (Matt. 14:14)
ii. The Shunamite woman’s love for her child had a hand in the resurrection of that child (2Kings 4:22-30)
iii. The Roman centurion whose servant was healed by the power of faith through love (Luke 7:2-9)
You cannot be love-filled and be faithless; the intensity of your love affects the intensity of your faith
Anything you do to build passion and compassion in your heart will build your faith
