Faith (Part 2)…

I’ve been reading through Genesis with my two sons…

It’s been so obvious to me – we’re all having a crack at the reading – so obvious to me just how real God is…

He says things exactly as they are – He knows no shame in saying it exactly how it is…

Scripture is amazingly real isn’t it?

Why did God love Abraham so much?

Why did God remain faithful to Isaac and Jacob?

Jacob was such a rat bag wasn’t he?

No worse than me…

I see a lot of myself (my “old self”) in Jacob…

But there were times when God spoke where He enabled them to believe – and to believe “big things” – huge things – extremely huge things – things which even to this day have yet to come to pass – and yet they believed them – they struggled on the “every day living” things or waiting for God’s promises at times – and Jacob especially seemed to have quite a “lean” and “sad” life – but they believed at the important times…

We’ve just started Exodus last night – I’m away on a business trip for the rest of the week so we didn’t read tonight – but we see Moses told amazing things at the burning bush and not believing God and God’s anger burning against Moses even though God loved Moses…

Love does not delight in evil…

Everything that is not of faith is sin…

God’s anger falls on unbelief…

That’s a good thing…

It burns it away from us…

We can’t strive to believe more – if we can’t believe, we can’t believe – we need to wait for God to establish faith in us…

Love covers a multitude of sins…

When we’re in that place of humility whatever remains of sin in us is covered by the Lord…

Whatever effect that has on those around us is also covered by the Lord…

We have nothing to fear…

Fear leads only to evil doing as the scripture says…

This is very releasing…

Very releasing…

When the Lord releases faith to you know that it is not you and know something else – that it will surely come to pass – all those knowings which you have where you just know that you know that you know – you might be on the toilet and all of a sudden you know – that is the gift of faith and that is the Lord releasing it to you – you can’t add to that – I try to when He releases it – I try to make it better but I never do… 🙂

He makes it better by releasing the faith to us in the first place… 🙂

And when He does something is established and something else is gone…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
