People with Faith

     Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 KJV. How is our faith produced? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 KJV. Having faith pleases God and the lack of it or none at all, does not please Him. In Hebrews 11:6 KJV, it tells us, But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. If you want to know who had faith, read all of Hebrews Chapter 11, KJV. There were many who had faith from Abel to Rahab.

     I want to touch on this one scripture concerning faith. James 1:6 KJV, But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. When you ask anything of God you can’t go behind that and doubt that God heard you or that He will not answer your prayers. One minute you say you believe, then the answer you’re waiting for hasn’t happened in “YOUR” timing, so doubt sets in and faith fades away. This is not faith. We should always want our desires to line up with His purpose for our lives. Amen.

     I know two people personally, that I believe are walking by faith and living on purpose. One is my sister-in-law, Michelle Gibson; she has written a book called “The Invitation Allowing God in Before the I Do.” When you hear her tell her story about how this book came to fruition, you will know she trusted God and walks by faith. She could have stopped writing after the first chapter. She could have said I’m drawing a blank and don’t know what to write or where to begin. She probably asked herself, what should the title be?  Or this is too hard and taking up too much time, so forget it. What I know for sure is Michelle didn’t take the credit, she gives all the glory to God, because she knows where her help comes from and the God we serve. Get the book on Amazon it will bless you!

     The second person is my friend Kim Stevens, who makes the most delicious cupcakes ever!! The name of her business is gigis_sweet_treatz!!!  Check out her Instagram (IG) page with pics of all the goodies and get ready to place your order. The cupcakes come in all kind of flavors from Apple Pie to Red Velvet and everything in between. She puts her heart into it and you will know it by the presentation and the great taste. God has given her so much creativity and an entrepreneur spirit, that she is able to provide a beautiful service to those who are celebrating all sorts of occasions. Kim is doing her thing and walking by faith. I don’t think she is sitting around wondering if someone is going to buy her cupcakes? Will I have repeat customers? God will send the people and believe me he has; she just keeps doing what God has giving her the ability and gift to do and giving God the glory.

     A little side note, because you can’t see the future or know all the steps or outcome doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for it. So, pray, listen to God, be obedient to what He has called you to do, have faith and MOVE!! 

     Let’s talk about when you think you have faith but nothing happens. Remember the man that asked Jesus to cure his son? Matthew 17: 14-20 KJV, He said to Jesus, the disciples could not cure him. The disciples asked Jesus why they couldn’t heal him? Let’s not forget they were given authority to heal, but they didn’t understand or recognize the power of God and their faith and that nothing would be impossible. I hope you get this – you can move mountains if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed. It’s in the WORD.

     I hope Kim and Michelle are an inspiration for you to work your faith. Be obedient to God’s word and demonstrate your faith. Start that business, write a book, start that blog, go for that promotion, go back to school, whatever God has for you is for you. Have Faith!!

Hannah’s Prayer is Answered

It wasn’t all sunshine and roses for Hannah, she was childless and not by choice. In the midst of that, her husband Elkanah’s other wife Peninnah had children 1Sam. 1:2 KJV, And he had two wives; the name of one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. Hannah was in pain and exasperated by Peninnah. 1Sam. 1:6-7 KJV, And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb. And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the Lord, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.

Hannah prayed and petition the Lord. In 1Sam. 1:10-11 KJV  And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord, and wept sore. And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head. Hannah was very specific in her request, she said a man child, this is a reminder of Phil 4:6-7 KJV Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. In God’s timing, Hannah did conceive, 1Sam. 1:20 KJV Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the Lord. Hannah remembered her prayer, and kept her vow and reminded the Lord. 1Sam. 1:26-28 KJV, And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the Lord. For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him: Therefore also I have lent him to the Lord; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he worshipped the Lord there.

Hannah was so thankful for what God had done she began to pray. Let’s look at Hannah’s Prayer in 1Sam. 2:1-10 KJV, she first reverences the Lord, then warned of the proud and arrogance, we can connect this to several people in the Bible, Eli’s sons, the Philistines, and David’s son Absalom. Her prayer includes how the Lord maketh poor and maketh rich, which is also mentioned in Proverbs 22:2 KJV, The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all. Hannah goes on further and tells how the Lord bringeth low the wicked and I think about Nebuchadnezzar, Saul, and Haman. And God lifteth up the righteous and of course we recall the stories of Job, David, and Mordecai and at the end of her prayer in verse 10 she let it be known by God alone actions are weighed.

Hannah conceived, remembering her vow to the Lord and kept the vow – the sacrifice of giving her son Samuel to serve the Lord. God ended up blessing Hannah with more children. 1Sam. 2:21KJV, And the Lord visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the Lord. And Samuel became a prophet of the Lord 1Sam 19-20 KJV, And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord.

God knows our heart and he wants us to bring our sorrows and troubles to him, or whatever it is you may be going through. No situation is too big for God. Amen. Trust in his timing and believe that he hears your prayers. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20 KJV.

Trust God and Be Ready to Face Your Giants

Trust God and Gold

Welcome to 2020!! We are not complaining and we are going after everything God has for us this season. This year. I know that you have been around people or those in your circle that complain this can’t be done or you shouldn’t try that because it didn’t work for so and so. And we will lose if we do that. Well, I hope you have big faith and not listen to those who want to minimize your potential and your ability to rise to the level God has for you. I want you to be more like Caleb. Caleb knew what he was about to face, but it didn’t faze him, he was ready to go, he trusted the Lord.

God spoke to Moses and said to send men to search the land of Canaan. Numbers 13:1-2 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them. In Numbers 13:17- 25 They scoured the land and after forty days reported back to Moses and Aaron what they found, Numbers 13: 26-29 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.

Sometimes people will give you a visual in the hopes of discouraging you. But this is the part in the scripture where you want a Caleb in your life or better yet YOU want to be able to demonstrate courage no matter what others say, such as Caleb, in Numbers 13:30, And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it, for we are well able to overcome it. WOW, Caleb was truly exercising his faith and belief that God will be with them. Yes, he heard the report, but Caleb knew he had the victory in God. Caleb knew where is help came from…THE LORD!!

But you have those in the background still being doubtful, saying it cannot be done. We will not OVERCOME the enemy. Read Numbers 13:31-33 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. What God were they serving? Did they forget this is the same God who brought them out of Egypt and parted the Red Sea to save them. The same God who said they were his chosen people and they didn’t think God could remove some giants?

Now Joshua and Caleb pleaded their case again, Number 14:7-9 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land. If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us: a land which floweth with milk and honey. Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

Like Caleb speak up and tell the naysayers what your God can do. Are you a Caleb? Are you ready no matter what it looks like in front of you? Maybe there are some things in your life that are too big for you to handle and fight, but GOD! Start now with that go get it attitude. When God tells you to move forward and receive what he has for you, please believe he has already worked out the details. You can do all things through Christ. The year is just beginning so ask God to get your faith level up. This is my prayer for everyone reading this: Dear God I ask that you remove the spirit of fear and replace it with a level of faith that surpasses their human understanding. Lord, I pray we have more Caleb’s’ in 2020, ready to go to battle and get what you promised for them in Jesus precious name Amen.

God Has A Plan

jeremiah-29-11

You have all heard that saying, don’t put all your eggs in one basket, because that great plan may not work out. Lucky for me, I have never put all of my eggs in one basket and thought it was important to have a plan B, C, and D, because you gotta be ready for what may happen if Plan A doesn’t go as planned. Well I don’t know about you, but I have had a front row seat to my initial plan failing and the subsequent plans thereafter not being all that successful either. Sooo what I’ve decided to do was surrendered to God. I’m no longer in charge of my life or the plan(s). I realize that the one who created me and knows me better than I know myself will do a much better job leading me and guiding me than I will ever be able to do on my own.

I think about Andrew, Peter, James, and John who were fishermen. Their job was to go out and catch fish. Simple enough, that is what they did. That was their plan. But there was a different plan on the horizon, Jesus would show them how to cast their nets, to be fishers of men in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and all nations according to Matthew 28:18-20. Let’s look at Matthew 4:18-22 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

They would cast their nets, but God would do the catching, John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted it up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. God will enlighten the mind of his people, drawing all men with the truth of his word and the Holy Spirit, learning and hearing the word of God, causing an urge to yield to the will of God and therefore becoming willing servants- followers of Christ Jesus and God getting all the glory.

God has the plan for my life and he doesn’t need my help. God never fails, He knows ALL! He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He never sleeps or slumbers. His word never comes back void. He is the great I AM. And the list goes on and on about the goodness and righteousness of God. He has been providing for me all these years and has delivered me out of the hand of my enemies and delivered me out of the stuff I have caused doing it my way. With that being said, I will take God’s plan over mine every time. Just like Andrew, Peter, James and John, I dropped what I set out to do and follow God. God doesn’t need a bunch of plans. He doesn’t need to start from scratch or hold a do over, it is done and done in his timing.

God is intentional all we have to do is listen and obey. Draw closer to him and acknowledge him. He said I will supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory. There you have it, I don’t need a plan of my own, what I need is to understand what God has for me is enough and that all that other stuff is not important. His plan is not to give into my every want, but to meet my spiritual needs.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV. And this definitely is a plan I can and will accept.

Get Ready For Your Exodus

Exodus

God is a way maker and deliverer…. HALLELUJAH!! He is faithful always. He can make your enemies your footstool. He can hide you from your enemies, Psalm 27:5 For in time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. If God can hide you, he can surely bring you out of whatever you may be going through. Get ready for your Exodus, he will bring you out, so hold on to his word and believe it will all work out for your good. Amen.
We can never forget how God parted the Red Sea, freeing Israel from their many years of Egyptian bondage. Exodus 14:21-22 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
Israel was God’s chosen people, 1Kings 8:53 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD. Here is another one, 2Samuel 7:24, For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, Lord, art become their God. And let me give you one more concerning Israel as God’s chosen people, look at Psalm 135:4 For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
But there is good news, we are also God’s chosen people!! Ephesians 1:3-6 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
You are loved and were chosen, and very precious to God, he cares about every aspect of your life. Ephesians 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not his people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Yes, you may be going through some heavy stuff that is too much for you to handle, but not too much for God. Even in your most dire circumstances you are coming out of it. It might not look like it right now, but he is an on-time God. Stop thinking ohhh this is really bad. Stop thinking will he do it? Think on the good things of the Lord. Amen. The word says in Exodus 14:14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
Your Exodus is coming!! You are going to be delivered from whatever you may be going through. He didn’t forget to bring Israel out time and time again and he will not forget about you. Get ready for your Exodus and believe that you’re coming out on the other side victorious!

Truth, Faith, and Praise

 

Jude

It may not be the longest or shortest book in the Bible, but the book of Jude carries some weight with reminders of the importance to stand firm in our faith, beware of false teachers, and ending with praise for the Almighty God. Jude didn’t hold back, he hit hard telling believers to learn and know correct doctrine (2Tim 2:15.) Defend and fight for truth, (Titus 2:1 and Titus 1:9) not compromising the truth of the word of God by twisting it to sooth our sinful nature. Ephesians 4:21, If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus.
Jude makes very good points: the first being the rescues and punishments and false teachers. God delivered Israel out of Egypt, (Exodus 12:51) And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the Lord did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies, but destroyed those who did not remain faithful as told in (Numbers 14:26-35.) Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed for sexual immorality, but God rescued Lot. In (2Peter 2:6-9) And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgement to be punished.
Also, he shares of false teachers who have led people to believe that because of forgiveness you can live any way you want undermining the teachings of Jesus Christ. Examples of this are Cain murdered his brother Abel out of jealousy (Genesis 4:1-16), Balaam prophesied out of greed (Numbers 22-24), and Korah rebelled against God’s appointed leaders (Numbers 16:1-35.) Enoch (mentioned in Genesis 5:21-24) prophesied about ungodly acts in Jude verse 14-16, which is also found in the Book of Enoch.
Then Jude goes on to explain that believers should build up their faith through prayer. Keep close to Christ who will keep you from stumbling. And as you help others, be careful not to compromise your belief and the foundation of your faith, hate the sin, but witness to others. And give all glory to God who keeps us from falling. Jude is great book that reflects on consequences and deliverance, our need for prayer, to be a servant and praise God always.

God Did Not Give Us the Spirit of Fear

Fear

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2Tim 1:7

God makes it plain. He did not give us the spirit of fear. So, where does fear come from? The enemy and your own thoughts running crazy. Fear stops us from moving forward and hearing what the Lord is saying to you. Ask yourself why are you accepting something God did not present to you? Do not claim fear but rebuke it. Fear makes excuses. Fear stops you from starting that business. Fear keeps you doubting and asking am I good enough? Fear will keep you in a state of mental bondage. Fear keeps you from trusting God. God didn’t give you the spirit of fear, remove the fear that is holding you back. Declare and decree that fear will no longer have a stronghold over your life.

 I love this scripture because God didn’t leave us guessing well if he didn’t give us fear what did he give us? God said of power, and of love and of a sound mind. Power – Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. And that power is the Holy Spirit. Love – 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. In Mark 12:30-31 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Sound mind – Phil 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

By doing all things through the power of the Holy Spirit you are walking by faith, showing love, and at peace in your mind, leaving no room for fear. The opposite of FEAR is FAITH. Faith means YES YOU CAN do ALL things through Christ.

Be Blessed

 

God Watches Over You

God Watches Over You

The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:8 NIV

If you truly believe with all your heart that God is for you, then why doubt that he is watching over you and will come through for you? Some things we ask God for may not be the right time to receive it. The delay could be that God has something better for you on the horizon. How many times have you thanked God for not allowing things you wanted to come to pass? For example, you wanted that new car in 2017 but now in 2019 you are glad you didn’t get that new car because your job downsized or your spouse lost their job and the income is not there to support the payment. God is watching over you he sees the beginning and the end. Trust in the creator and trust God’s plan he knows you better than you know yourself. He said in his word, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…Jeremiah 1:5. And Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

If you are still having self-doubt that God has your back, Matthew 6:25-26 should put you at ease. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

God is always with you when you are coming and going. Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. As I’m writing this, I’m feeling victorious and my spirt is over joyed in the fact that God is with me every day and everywhere I go, HALLELUJAH!! Keep the faith, God was with you last year and the years before that. He brought you over the hurdles in your life thus far, big and small. He has fought your battles and has kept you yesterday and he will keep you today. God never sleeps or slumbers, so forget worrying and fear not because God is watching over you forevermore.

Trust in God’s Promises

Trust God's Promises

And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Genesis 15:6
God told Abram not to fear. I’m going to protect you and reward you. But Abram wondered what good is the blessings when he didn’t have an heir. God reassures him that an heir shall come forth out of thine own bowels and that his descendants will be like the stars too many to count. God already knows what we don’t have and he also knows what we are in need of.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us Ephesians 3:20. And that scripture is forever so true, God tells Abram, For me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee, Genesis 17:4, 6. He is letting Abram know I’m going to do more than give you an heir.
God will always do what he said he is going to do. And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him, Genesis 17:19. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year, Genesis 17:21.  Four chapters later, For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac, Genesis 21:2-3.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God: And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform, Romans 4:20-21.
We can trust in God’s promises because God keeps his word and Psalm 138:2 says for thou has magnified thy word above all thy name. God is pure, holy, all powerful, all knowing, good, and truth and therefore so is his Word.
Jeremiah 1:12 NIV The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.

 

Measure Your Faith Level

Levels-of-Faith

Be honest with yourself and rate your faith level. Here are the choices:
A.      None – Never had faith.
B.      Partial faith – Sometimes I believe and then I doubt that God will come through.
C.      Abundance of faith – Activated faith, overflowing and living by faith, trusting God in every area of your life.
This is for the people that reluctantly picked A or B, rely on God, His Grace, His Promise, and His Power. Faith is the beginning of your relationship with God. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
If you still have doubt that faith works the Bible has plenty of examples of faith. The Roman Centurion who asked Jesus to heal his paralyzed servant. He was a man of authority over 100 soldiers, but recognized Jesus’ supreme authority and power Matthew 8:5-10. The Canaanite woman, Jesus healed her daughter that she said was waxed with a devil and because of her great faith her daughter was made whole, Matthew 15:22-31. These are two stories in the Bible where Jesus talks about great faith.
There are other stories of faith, Abraham willing to sacrifice his son Isaac to the Lord, Genesis 22:1-18. Gideon with his small army defeated the Midianites. The Midianites had 135,000 men and Gideon 32,000. God told him he had too many men, in the end he conquered them with only 300 men. God did not want them to boast that they did this in their own strength Judges 7:2, with fewer men they would have to have faith that God would help them.
Take a look at Luke 1:28-38 Mary the mother of Jesus accepting the plan of God that she would conceive though she was a virgin but that the Holy Ghost would come upon her. Her answer in Luke 1:38 was so profound, And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word, And the angel departed from her. All I can say to this is let thy word be done – this was FAITH!! The prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 was fulfilled.
 Read more about Faith in Hebrews 11:1-40
Faith is the assurance that things even though unseen and what you expect in faith will come to pass. For all those who picked “C” who have an abundance of faith, that unshakeable faith, you already know there is no greater faith than to trust the word of God. If you are a person with no faith or partial faith – the doubter at times, work towards a new level of faith – pray and leave it with God, believe in the one who created you, trust in God’s word and watch God show up!!
Be Blessed
