“How To Build A Lifestyle Of Faith” pt 5

II Corinthians 5:7 ESV

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Faith is the activator, the switch, the connector to all the

things that God wants for us, but we must always keep our

focus on love.

Luke 17:5-6 ESV

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the

Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you

could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted

in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

Matthew 17:18-21 NKJV

And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him;

and the child was cured from that very hour.

19.Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why

could we not cast it out?” 20.So Jesus said to them, “Because

of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith

as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from

here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible

for you. 21.However, this kind does not go out except

by prayer and fasting.”

If we can keep our faith from being unhindered by unbelief it

can move anything.




How do you get rid of Unbelief?

You have to starve it to death.

There are two kinds of unbelief; Active and Passive.

Active Unbelief is willing and known unbelief which comes

from sin.

This type of unbelief openly defies the Word of God and

refuses to do what God says to do.

Scripture: I Timothy 1:19 NLT, Psalm 66:18 NLT.

Passive Unbelief comes from over occupation with the

legitimate things of life.

Mark 4:18-19 NKJV

Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the

ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the

deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things

entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

Faith is faith and unbelief is unbelief.

Acts 6:4 NKJV

but we will give ourselves continually to prayer

and to the ministry of the word.”

Faith is what connects you to the power of God. If you are

lacking the power in your life, remove the hindrances.
