BUILT - NEW PREACHING SERIES

When the storms of life come, are you BUILT?

When the rains descend, floods rise and winds blow, are you unshakeable and unmovable; are you unstoppable?

Is the storm:

  • A relationship

  • A disappointment

  • A fear

  • A compulsive and destructive behavior

  • An under resourced vision

  • A biological weakness

PSALM 127:1-5 NKJV (Solomon said) Unless the LORD BUILDS the house, They labor in vain who BUILD it; 

  • QUESTION: HOW DOES THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE?

MATTHEW 7:24-27 NKJV (Jesus said) Therefore WHOEVER hears these SAYINGS OF MINE, and DOES THEM, I will liken him to a WISE MAN who BUILT his HOUSE ON THE ROCK: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who BUILT his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.

MARK 11:22-24 TPT Jesus replied, “Let the FAITH of God be in you! 23 Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great FAITH and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and BELIEVES that what he says will happen, it will be done. 24 This is the reason I urge you to BOLDLY BELIEVE for whatever you ask for in prayer—BELIEVE that you have received it and it will be yours. 

Real Faith in the Word says, “If God says it is true, it is.”  If God says He is the strength of my life, He is.  So I go about doing my work because He is what He says He is, and I am what He says I am.”

  • If He says I am STRONG, I am.

  • If He says I have JOY, then I do.

  • If He says SERVING OTHERS gives meaning to my life, then that is what I do.

  • If He says that GIVING FINANCIAL to His Kingdom is what multiplies my own resources, then I give.

  • If He says that MY FORGIVENESS OF OTHERS is a choice of obedience that frees up my life, then I forgive.

  • If He says that I HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN and guilt has been removed, then I am forgiven and act as though no more guilt exist.

____________________

HEBREWS 4:1-3 TPT Now God has offered to us the same promise of entering into his realm of resting in CONFIDENT FAITH. So we must be extremely careful to ensure that we all EMBRACE THE FULLNESS of that PROMISE and NOT FAIL TO EXPERIENCE IT. 2 For we have heard the good news of deliverance just as they did, yet THEY DIDN’T JOIN THEIR FAITH WITH THE WORD. Instead, what they heard didn’t affect them deeply, for they doubted. 3 For those of us who believe, FAITH ACTIVATES THE PROMISE and we EXPERIENCE the realm of confident rest!  

2 KINDS OF UNBELIEF

  1. Based on IGNORANCE God’s Word

  2. Based on DISOBEDIENCE to integrate, regulate and activate God’s Word

  • Choose not to THINK it

  • Choose not to FEEL it

  • Choose not to DO it

  • Choose not to LIVE it

____________________ 

JAMES 2:17-19 TPT So then FAITH that doesn’t involve ACTION is PHONY. 18 … I will show you FAITH by my WORKS (actions/activations) as proof that I BELIEVE. 19 You can BELIEVE all you want that there is one true God, that’s wonderful! But even the demons know (BELIEVE) this and tremble with fear before him, yet they’re unchanged—they remain demons.

FAITH:  CAN I DO THIS?

ROMANS 12:3 NKJV For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to EACH ONE a MEASURE OF FAITH.

ROMANS 10:17 NKJV So then FAITH [COMES] BY HEARING, and hearing by the WORD OF GOD.
