IT WORKS!

GUESS WHAT!        IT WORKS!

COY! GOT HEALED, LAWRENCE GOT HEALED,
Mar 16:17  And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 
Mar 16:18  they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 

2Co 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Luke 8:22  Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.” And they launched out. 
Luke 8:23  But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. 
Luke 8:24  And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. 
Luke 8:25  But He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!”

BUT THIS TEST!

2Co 12:8  For this thing I besought the Lord three times, that it might depart from me.
2Co 12:9  And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me.
2Co 12:10  Therefore I am pleased in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am powerful.

Philippians 4:11  Not that I speak according to need, for I have learned to be content in whatever state I am.
Philippians 4:12  I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound. In everything and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

FRUSTRATION, DADGUMIT! WHY?

 REASONS 

  1. NOT ENOUGH FAITH
  2. Mat 17:14  And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 

Mat 17:15  “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 
Mat 17:16  So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.” 
Mat 17:17  Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” 
Mat 17:18  And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. 
Mat 17:19  Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” 
Mat 17:20  So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 
Mat 17:21  However, this kind does not go out except by prayer

ANSWER= Rom 10:9  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 
Rom 10:10  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

2. NO ENDURANCE
Ezekiel 7:17  Every hand will be feeble, And every knee will be as weak as water.
I CAN’T DO IT ANYMORE, THAT’S ALL I CAN HANDLE
2Timothy 4:5  But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 

3. CONTROL
WHO IN CHARGE, IF JESUS ISN’T, YOU ARE.
Rom 10:16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 

WHAT HAS THE GOSPEL PAID FOR?………. EVERYTHING!
Rom 10:9  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 
Rom 10:10  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

REMEMBER IT WORKS!
