Faith is the prescribed way of life for those who are a part of the kingdom of God. While everything in the kingdom of God is powered by love, you can't obtain the promises of God without

  1. If you are a part of the Kingdom of God, then your lifestyle is faith (Habakkuk 2:4; Hebrews 10:38).
    1. Those who have been declared righteous live by faith; faith leads to more faith (Romans 1:17).

      1. It takes faith to get results from the Word.
    3. Faith is the Word of God.

      1. Faith is not just believing; it is believing combined with a specific Word you received from God's Word.
      2. Belief is a part of faith, but it is not the whole part.
      3. Faith is a practical expression of confidence in God and His Word.

    7. When you throw away your confidence, you throw away your reward.

  3. Faith believes even when you can't see any evidence in the natural.

    2. Fear is believing that what God said won't come to pass.
    3. Meditate the Word of God so that you can be successful in life.
      1. To meditate is to mutter, ponder, speak and think about a scripture until you get revelation from it.

    1. Patience doesn't mean to tolerate. It is remaining consistently, constantly the same no matter what the circumstances may be.
    2. Maintain your stance when trials come.
    3. Nothing in the natural realm should change your confidence.
    4. Don't get weak and give up.
