Friday Felloship: Today Get your Hands on Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for”.  Stop in the verse there, substance is the key. Substance is something tangible. Next part of the verse says “evidence of things not seen.”
We use faith in these situations as hope is needed in them and there’s no evidence of actuality.
1.      Uncertain situations
2.      Unknown situations
3.      Against all logic situations
In Exodus we find God’s people in an uncertain situation, will pharaoh destroy them?
 In an unknown situation how will they escape?
Against all logic Moses told the people of God to fear not and watch the salvation of God, will they trust God in the face of destruction?

Maybe, I lost you lets update our questions. In uncertainty, will I get that job I just interviewed?
When faced with unknown, will I make it through the week with my finances being extremely limited?
Against all logic, God does he speak to us and is prayer effective?
When you’re faced with these situations this is what you do…..

Hebrews 11 stresses accomplishments of people that got their hands on faith:
29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
18 Of whom it was said, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
When you have faith, your imagination is activated. The scripture in blue, demonstrates this. Abraham went to offer his son as a sacrifice believing God would raise him from the dead, despite never seeing it done.
God is pleased By faith as mentioned in Hebrews. Please God today and activate your imagination of God regarding wherever you are. Use these people as your example and this format.
To the unemployed person By faith go before God in prayer and claim today at 10am I’m receiving a call with the job I desired.
To the person that’s frustrated with the same thing all week By faith go to God in prayer and claim now in the name of Jesus I receive the peace of lord that passes all understanding. I’m not leaving prayer or ceasing to call your name until my peace comes.
To the person in school worried about their studies and grades,  say to yourself By faith I’ve done my best and I will do Great as I am favored by God because Jeremiah 17:7 says
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.” By faith I believe this scripture applies to my education.
Hebrews 13:8 says
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” By faith we believe this and know God’s miraculous power then is still present and available now.

By faith we please God. What are you changing or receiving By faith?
