Many Christians are feeling the pressure of financial challenges. Mounting financial lack on top of other problems can be overwhelming. Despite what we may be experiencing, we must continue to believe God’s Word. We cannot adopt a worldly mind-set, placing the world’s way of doing things above God and His Word. He has the power to deliver us. No matter how impossible the task, we must simply believe.

  1. If we do not believe God, we will not enter into the kingdom of God (Matthew 21:28-32).

    1. To believe means to be fully persuaded (Romans 4:17-21).

      1. We must be fully persuaded that we have what God has promised us, even when we don’t see it.

      2. Our speaking should reflect what we believe we have received according to the Word of God.

      3. We must call those things that do not exist as though they already exist (Romans 4:17).

  2. When we come to God, we must believe that He is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).

    1. The three Hebrew boys—Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego—were delivered from a fiery furnace because they trusted God (Daniel 3:26-28).

      1. Trust is an expression of our commitment to God and His Word.

      2. To trust Him means to rely on Him.

  3. Jesus’ words carried so much power, that when He spoke, He saw immediate results (Mark 11:20-24).

    1. Jesus gave this empowerment to us. Now we also have the ability to speak and see instant results.

      1. Jesus taught us that when we speak in faith, having no doubt in our hearts, we can move mountains. We can have what we say (Mark 11:20-23).

      2. When we pray—believing that we have received what we asked for—we will have it (Mark 11:24).

  4. Jesus made faith simple. To get results in the kingdom, all we have to do is believe that He has the power to deliver.

    1. Two blind men came to Him asking Him to restore their sight. Jesus asked, “Believe ye that I am able to do this?” (Matthew 9:27-29).

      1. Jesus wants us to change our thinking and believe the Gospel despite impossibilities.

      2. We cannot receive from the kingdom of God while relying on the world’s way of doing things (Mark 1:15).

    2. A ruler of the synagogue received the news that his daughter was dead. Jesus told him, “Be not afraid, only believe” (Mark 5:35-42).

    3. Paul trusted God, even in the midst of a storm at sea (Acts 27:25).

    4. When we believe God, there are no limitations; even the dead can be raised through belief in God (John 11:38-40).
