Faith to Fly – Pst. Segun Esho
Topic: Faith to Fly
Text: Hebrews 11:1-34
Speaker: Pastor Segun Esho
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
It can be your time to fly but not your turn. It might not be your time nor your turn, but when God steps in everything rearranges. If you want to fly (succeed), you need faith.
What is Faith?
Faith, is the starting point for all success, it is the basis for all mysteries that cannot be explained by science, it is the direct communication between God and man, it is vital like oxygen.
If you can push your faith a little bit higher, you’ll go/fly higher.
WHY IS FAITH SO VITAL (IMPORTANT)?
- Faith is what connects us to God. God is spirit and you can only relate to spirit at a spiritual level, we don’t see God, so if we must deal with God we must act in faith, we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
- Faith is the currency you need for every life procurement. It gives you access to procurement; it is a currency!
- Faith is the convener/ converter of imagination into reality. Everything is created twice, first in your imagination and then reality. The bridge between imagination and reality is FAITH. Hebrews 11:3. Faith in most cases starts with the spiritual before it manifests.
- The only thing that moves God to action is faith. Numbers 14:28.
- God is limited by your level of faith. Mark 6:5-6. Where you are, is the function of your level of faith. Romans 12:3
SEVEN LEVELS OF FAITH
- No Faith, Mark 4:30
- Little Faith, Matthew 8:26
- Temporary/Non-permanent faith, Luke 8:15
- Saving Faith, Ephesians 2:8
- Strong Faith, Romans 4:17-25
- Active Faith, James 2:18
- Great Faith, Matthew 8:10, Matthew 15:28
HOW DO WE ACTIVATE OUR FAITH?
Faith is simply;
- Hearing, Romans 10:17 (the second hearing in the verse is understanding)
- Believing, Mark 9:23
- Speaking, Mark 11:23, Joel 3:10, Faith does not align with negative words.
- Acting on God’s word, James 2:14,18,20. Faith is action.
You need faith to fly. Romans 10:10. One thing that can change the life of a man is when the man’s faith gets connected by prophetic utterance.
