Goal of this Series Developing active exhilarating faith experiencing God's intervention in our daily life. You can believe in God without believing God Faith is believing God It is time to synchronize what we say we believe and what we truly believe. What we truly believe is evident in our reality
Faith does not make God do anything He did not already plan to do We can never manipulate God to give us what we want We must cooperating with God so that He can give us what He wants.
God is not who we say He is God is not similar to who He says He is God is not almost who He says He is God is exactly who He says He is
It births and develops confidence in God Gen. 17 : 1- 2; Matt. 6:25-34 God declares who He is before He gives a promise or instructions. We must give up our neat package of who we see God is
God is not explainable God is mysterious God is not predictable What we know of God is only partial We are like a little boy on the beach who is trying to put the entire ocean into a hole he has dug on the beach.
What we know of God is only partial We are like six blind men who visit an Elephant. The blind man who feels a leg says the elephant is like a pillar; The one who feels the tail says the elephant is like a rope; The one who feels the trunk says the elephant is like a tree branch; The one who feels the ear says the elephant is like a hand fan; The one who feels the belly says the elephant is like a wall; The one who feels the tusk says the elephant is like a solid pipe
Jesus asked the Apostles, who do you say I am? We need to examine who we say God is Who we say God is control, determines how we relate with God. How did we get to that understanding of Who God is? Culture – a whistling woman and a crowing hen are an abomination unto the Lord Upbringing – A very distant father
Matthew 6:10 The proper understanding of God comes by revelation through the word. Having the proper understanding of God enables us surrender to him
