Principles of faith

Day 29 (04 Sept 2017, Monday )

We need to possess the correct kind of faith as we live in an era where values, including the economic and political systems are in the state of chaos and spun into hopelessness.  The principle of this faith lies in Abraham, where “in hope he believed against hope.”
What acted against this hope was the decrease of all his natural and physical strengths, “…when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb” (Romans 4:19).  And yet he could proudly say, the resurrected Christ is my only hope.  “…Christ in you… the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).

Ask God to help us to look at His promises, to which we will built the foundation of our faith upon the Word of God.
Many times, our faith is weakened because of what we see with our eyes and the reality that is laid before us.

Our perspectives will only lead us to pessimism and despair. Only when our principle of faith is put at the right perspective, and we allow God’s Word to take root in our life as our sure foundation, then nothing, be it troubles or testing, can possibly separate us from the love of God.

We must learn to rely on God more when we go through all these tests and is best done through our fervent and steadfast prayers.  We can declare by faith, that God will surely accomplish great things, and no one is able to hinder or stop Him from doing so.

Pray for the Church in our nation 

Pray that the Church will be an agent of hope and love for our nation.
Pray that church members will not be complacent but instead be active in reaching out to the lost and discipling new believers in Christ Jesus.

Pray for a revival to take place among those who have lost their first love for Jesus.
Pray that we will be diligent in strengthening the weak, working together in unity and to have a greater lover for one another.

Pray for the five-fold ministry (Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers) to be established in every church in order to equip all the saints for the service of His Kingdom.
