“Faith In The Fire” Rev Sparks
Daniel 3: 12-18
What Faith is Not:
1. Faith is not Faith in Faith
We should Have the Faith that says I know you’re able, but even if you don’t I will still follow/believe
2. Faith is not trust in what we want to happen
Jim Conway – daughter was stricken with cancer and they needed to amputate her leg. He and the congregation prayed that it didn’t need to happen as a testimony she would be healed…even until the morning of her surgery. He asked the dr to test her leg again before the surgery and as the dr came out, he realized that he’d prayed for a specific outcome and not Faith for God to heal her. While he was broken, he was also built up and his Faith was restored! God blesses us according to His will and purpose.
3. Faith is not trust in our ability to discern Gods will / Faith is not trying to figure out what God is going to do next
***we see what we want to see in scripture***
FAITH is simply TRUST IN GOD ALONE!!!!
Hebrews 11:1 – Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
