WE ARE SHAPED AND ARRAYED BY THE FATHER'S HAND

The Word of God is an indispensable tool that shape our heart and mold us. Jeremiah 18:1-6 says "1. The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2. Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3. Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5. Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,6. O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel."
We are in His hands. Like the ring made by a jeweller, we must be shaped just as the Master wants us to be. By His hand, we will be perfect. Because He doesn't make mistakes.
Philippians 1:6; "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" God will complete the work He has begun in you. This scripture delivers encouragement to our hearts. It is in our spiritual mind and it is eternally written in our hearts.
Jeremiah 29:11; "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an unexpected end."
God's plan and beauty that He wants to do in our lives, will be slow, but we will be perfect as God wants us to be. Matthew 5:45; "That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." Hebrews 4:12; "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
The Word of God is alive and active. The Word is very powerful. The Holy Spirit within us is always speaking to us and we must listen attentively and obey.
         
Ephesians 2:1; "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;" A dead man is dead. Nothing can be done for him.

The only thing that can help him is resurrection. Isaiah 40:31; "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their  strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
There is a difference between religion and grace. Both help turn your life around to God. God has demonstrated grace toward us with the Cross. We are able to enjoy the life of Christ. By believing in what Christ has done as far as dying on the Cross to save the world from sin. We are able to live from the divine resources of what Christ has done for us.
Romans 6:6; "Knowing this that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." Our flesh has been crucified with Christ and our sins are washed away. God is no longer keeping record of our sins. We have been redeemed, delivered justified and declared righteous through Christ.
Romans 6:3-4; 3. Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."
You are a new person. Your old ways from Adam have been crucified with Christ. Jesus came to undo the damage done by Adam in the Garden Of Eden. Jesus'work took our old way and cleaned it up.
Hebrews 9:26; "For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself." Your sins are forever gone.
Colossians 3:3-4; 3. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory." Psalms 103:12; "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us."

God has taken our sins faraway.  The east and west never meet.
2 Corinthians 5:21; "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." The Father took our sins away and separated them from us as far as the east is from the west and He gave us the righteousness of Christ. We don't have a changed life, we have an exchanged life. When the enemy tries to condemn us, we can tell him we have already been killed and resurrected with Christ.
Romans 1:16-17 shows that we don't live by our faith but by God's faith. Galatians 2:16, 20; 16. Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 20. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
We can rest in God's faith. We are victorious through the gift of faith. We have the righteousness of Christ. We are a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17). Ephesians 2:8-10 shows faith is a gift of God and grace comes through faith. Everything we have was given by God. Faith is a gift. It is not what we do. He doesn't respond to what we do. We respond to what God does. You can't impress God by what you do.
         
Hebrews 11:1; "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Faith is not seeing with the natural eye or about anything in the natural. But anything in faith is seen by the spirit. Faith allows the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see, or what the mind can think, or what the heart can feel. It goes beyond the senses.
Galatians 2:16,20 shows we are not justified by the law but by faith of Christ Jesus. No flesh is justified by the law. We have the righteousness of Christ. We were crucified with Christ and rose with Him.

Romans 3:22-23; 22. Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference:"
Galatians 3:14,22; 14. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
22. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe." We have been given the gift of faith of Jesus Christ.
1Timothy 1:14; "And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus."
Titus 1:1; "Paul a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;"








Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ, who acknowledged his faith in God. James 2:1; "My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons."
2 Peter 1:1; "Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:"
We have obtained the same precious faith through the righteousness of Christ because Christ is in us. God's Word is a two edged sword that is the promises of God that will be fulfilled. We must never let the temptations and rudiments of this world distract, deter or take our focus from God. The more we acknowledge the good in us through Christ, the better we can communicate our faith. The Gospel of grace is about the righteousness of Christ. We are a new creation in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17). The law has been fulfilled and we have been set free from the condemnation of the law. We have been restored, delivered, redeemed, justified and declared righteous through the death of Christ on the Cross at Calvary 2000 years ago. (Romans 8:1).

Knowing the Word of God will give you no more reason for regrets. You poison your future when you are regretting, complaining and murmuring just as the children of Israel did to themselves. There were millions of Israelites. Because they lost their belief and faith in God and constantly complained and murmured, God's judgement was against them. They never saw the Promised Land. Only two of them who never lost their belief and faith in God saw the Promised Land. They were Joshua and Caleb. (Numbers 14:30). How much time do you spend with the Lord? You need an identity with God. You are His righteousness. You need a relationship with God. It is important to work hard and make money, but making money or anything else of this world, should ever take precedence over God in your life. It's important to make God your priority in everything you do. Always put God first.
John 8:32; "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
The truth of God sets you free. You live in the world, but you are not of the world. (Romans 12:2). Hebrews 1:3; "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:" You have the glory and favor of God. It is all over you. God wants to prosper you.
Genesis 39:2; "And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian."
God being with Joseph, caused Joseph to be prosperous and successful. God wants you to be prosperous. If you are hungry, homeless, or in poverty, God is not happy. God wants you to believe and have faith in Him.
Ephesians 3:20; "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,"
God will give you above what you need, or ask for. Keep your heart right for God. Man may look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.(1Samuel 16:7). You are defined by Christ in you. Jesus left His Heavenly Throne to become a man at our level so that we can understand Him. You must understand God loves you. Let all bitterness, anger and past experiences and regrets be put away. (Ephesians 4:31).
1 Samuel 16:1; "And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons." God is telling Samuel to let go of his grief. He was telling Samuel to let go of the past. Live your life for God and let go of your past regrets and experiences.







Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mark 9:23).

Whenever you respond to God on the basis of His Word, you’re sure to have a testimony. That’s because faith is the response of the human spirit to the Word of God.

God’s Word always requires a response from you; that response is the proof that you believe the Word. And to the one who “believes,” anything is possible. That means you can do anything, have anything, go anywhere, be anything, as long as you believe. What is it to believe? Believing has nothing to do with mere mental assent; it’s not passive; it’s active. Believing is an action word; it’s the verb of faith.

The question then is, what do you believe? And what can you believe? It doesn’t matter what the problem is, if you can believe, all things are possible to you, and with you. So, it’s about what you believe. What you believe, you become. Believe that you can be pregnant and bring forth your own children! Believe that you can walk again! Believe that you can see again! Believe that you can be whole again!

Perhaps sickness has attacked your home or you have a loved one that’s suffering terribly from a debilitating ailment, and medical science says there’s no cure. For the Christian, there’s no such thing as “no cure”; nothing is impossible, because anything is possible! You can work a miracle and have a testimony even now.

Instead of crying about the situation, lamenting how dire it is, effect a change by acting on the Word. Put your faith to work. Consider Moses and the children of Israel: the Red Sea was in front of them, with the fierce Egyptian army on their trail. Moses cried unto God for help. But God said, “Moses, stretch your hand over the water and divide it.” Moses did as he was instructed, and the Red Sea split wide open.

It makes no difference what’s before you, or behind you, use the Word to effect a change; calm the storm with the Word. Jesus didn’t say “nothing shall be impossible unto God”; rather, He said, “...nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20). That means you can do anything, and be everything God has planned for you to be. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, thank you for imparting faith to my spirit, and helping me build it strong with the Word. My faith is alive; there’s nothing impossible unto me; there’re no hopeless situations I can’t change, because I’m strong in faith. Thank you, Lord, for a life of unending victories, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Prayer

My faith is alive; there’s nothing impossible unto me; there’re no hopeless situations I can’t change, because I’m strong in faith. Thank you, Lord, for a life of unending victories, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
