Faith: Foundation for Believing

Wednesday September 12, 2012

Pastor Dale explains the four stones in our foundation of faith. They are: 1) God is not a respecter of persons. He treats everyone the same, and He does not have favorites. In the story of the Prodigal Son, neither the elder nor the younger son had the father’s (Father’s) heart. Jesus came to bring freedom for all of us. 2) Numbers 23:19 God never lies. You can place your faith in your Father. He is not arbitrary. We can receive what He has promised. 3) Heb. 13:8 Jesus never changes; He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is moved with compassion. James 1:16-17 tell us to not be deceived; every good and perfect gift is from God, and He does not change. 4) Faith is of the heart, not the head. Your head will steal your faith. Faith is a product of the heart/spirit and is a spiritual force. Your heart is a better guide than your head if you’re full of the Word. Trust in the Lord … and lean not on your own understanding (Prov. 3:5-6).
