Confidence = Living with faith

"God calls his sons and daughters to soar like an eagle and not turkey !" was one sentence I would never forget from Ps. Dean's mouth. ^^

In Psalm 27:1, David writes "The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?" Indeed, though David was surrounded by enemies, He truly knows the power of his God and that is the hope and refuge he can count on.

Faith does NOT demand miracles but it creates an environment where miracles are the ONLY thing that can happen. Worldly people would require miracles to be shown before them before they can believe it. They can have confidence in pilots where they know they will reach their destination safely without questioning the pilots' qualification. Note that not all the planes made it to their destination. Why don't you put your faith in the almighty God who is always perfect ?

Lack of confidence can destroy relationships between family members, spouses and even spiritual one with God. So, how do you know whether you're lack of confidence ?

1. You don't want to try anything new. You would prefer the old way where you know it is going to work.
2. You refuse to solve problems.
3. You tend to search for group's confirmation.
4. Fear of responsibilities.
5. You don't look into the person's eyes whom you're talking to.

There are a lot of healthy hearts, bloods and cells in the heaven's storehouses because people are praying for healing but not many people have claimed it. When you pray for healing, prepare yourself as if you're going to be healed and walk out from the shadow of illnesses.

If some of you are going through this, turn it around and come back to God. It is never too late as God loves you. Do the birds have to worry about getting worms ? God prepares everything for them but they have to SEARCH for the worms. In other words, you have to take the step of faith.

Don't give up as winner never quits and quitter never wins.
Matthew 9:29 "Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you"

Praise God for this msg is very encouraging...God is a God who provide...and He faithfully provides for he generously gives without finding fault. Not only that "he who asks must believe in what he asked because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea tossed by the wind"...James 1:6 ...remember we live by faith not by sight....and without faith it is hard to please God (Hebrews11:6)
