Have Faith in God – Calvary Temple Sterling VA

As Christians, one important topic for us to hold onto is the subject of faith. (“For by grace are you saved through faith…” “Without faith it is impossible to please God…)

For the last 40 years, much of the church has focused on the subject of faith. The word “faith” has inspired movements, has become the foundation of ministries, and has found its way into countless church names.

Jesus said, “Have faith in God.”

Where is our faith today? Do we have faith in God? In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video clip, Pastor Scott helps us to see faith in its proper perspective. He reminds us that our faith is to be in God – in His person, in His Word, in His purposes in our lives.

If our faith is in God, then we don’t have to comprehend how He works in our lives. We trust Him through any circumstance and every situation. God is good in all things, and at all times.

In one very important quote in this clip, Pastor Scott shares with us that we “need to be as excited about God’s sovereign will as we are about His revealed will and His manifest will.”

In your quiet time with God today, meditate on that statement. Begin to thank and praise the Lord for His goodness and His ability to work all things together for our good, according to His purposes and promises.

Have faith in God!

Who We Are In Jesus – Calvary Temple VA

Who are we in this world? The Bible gives us quite a bit of insight into who we are as fallen creatures, sons and daughters of Adam. Yet the Word of God also tells us who we have become as sons and daughters of the Second Adam.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video clip, Pastor Scott stirs us up to see what has been accomplished in us through the redemption of Jesus. He also reminds us that these are not natural things, but are given to us through God’s Holy Word.

Do you see yourself today like the Israelites saw themselves in the wilderness? When you view your circumstances, do you see yourself as a grasshopper and your trials as giants?

The Bible declares that we are sons of God, we are His heirs, that we have been raised with Him to sit together with Him on His throne, and that we have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness.

Let us shake ourselves today and see the hope of our calling. Let us meditate on the Word of God and remember who we have become in Jesus. Let us walk in the Spirit of God and become as Joshua and Caleb, believing that if God is for us, none can stand against us.

Let us ask the Lord to help us to change how we see ourselves.

Satan Comes Immediately – Calvary Temple VA

One of the things that the Lord Jesus has invested in His Church is the ability to effectually make war in the heavenly realm, to see captives set free, and to see His Kingdom displayed in power.

The average Spirit-filled believer doesn’t spend time each day preparing to be used mightily of God. By His grace, the Lord brings a stirring into our hearts, sometimes through our time spent in His Word, sometimes through the teaching of our pastors, and sometimes when we are in the Lord’s presence. We awaken to His desires, we see afresh the power that is available to us, or we are touched deeply for the lives of people we know who are not born again.

It is during these times that we feel stirred to action. God’s promises are alive in us again, our hope is renewed, and we are ready to go forth in His Name.

Sadly, there are many times when this stirring doesn’t last very long. The enemy comes immediately to try to bring distractions or discouragements. If we give in to him in these times, we will remain weak and impotent, unable to effect that which God purposes for us.

We believe that this Sword of the Spirit 180 video will encourage you to action. Pastor Scott reminds us of the greatness of our God. He points us back to the Word of God and the promises that will strengthen us and encourage our faith.

It is the Lord’s will that we go forth in the power of His Holy Spirit. After watching this video clip, ask the Lord to ignite His flame within you. Go forth and conquer for Him, in the mighty Name of Jesus!
