1 Contending in Faith: Psalm 119 (around page 429 in visitor Bible)

2 Sources of Trials/Suffering 1.Enemy fire 2.Our own stupidity 3.Friendly fire (fallen world) 4.Disobeying our Commanding Officer

3 Isaiah 54:17 …no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from Me, declares the LORD.

4 Journal: November 1 I don t know if I m just supposed to wait…or contend or what…Holy Spirit, please speak. I don t know if I m just supposed to wait…or contend or what…Holy Spirit, please speak.

5 Jude 3 I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. Judges 8:1 And they contended with him vigorously.

6 Proverbs 4: My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a mans whole body.

7 Psalm 107:20 He sent forth his word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave. He sent forth his word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.

8 1.Feed Your Faith!

10 2. Eliminate Obstacles to Faith

11 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

12 2 Corinthians 4:13 It is written: I believed; therefore I have spoken. With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak…

13 Unbelief = self-protection from disappointment (fear based on an inaccurate perception of God)

14 3. Understand How Faith Works

15 Romans 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

16 Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

17 2 Corinthians 4:13 It is written: I believed; therefore I have spoken. With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak,

18 Isaiah 54:17 …no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from Me, declares the LORD.

19 Matthew 4:3-4 The tempter came to him and said, If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread. Jesus answered, It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.

20 Mark 11:22-24 Have faith in God, Jesus answered. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea,

21 Mark 11:22-24 Have faith in God, Jesus answered. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

22 Mark 11:22-24 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

23 4. Humble Yourself and Speak!

24 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised thingsand the things that are notto nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.

25 James 4:6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.

26 John 6:63 The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.

27 1 Thessalonians 2:13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.

28 Jeremiah 1:12 The LORD said to me, You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.

29 Isaiah 55:10-11 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

30 5. Dont Give Up!

31 Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
