Good morning family of God!

When life throws us a challenge that requires a RESPONSE, there are many ways we can choose to RESPOND. If we want a positive outcome, the RESPONSE we give in the middle of that challenge is important. How we RESPOND determines what happens next, and A FAITH RESPONSE will always release a supernatural manifestation.

We can see examples in both the Old and New Testaments of HOW TO RESPOND IN FAITH.  In the New Testament, we can see how Abraham’s faith was strong when God promised him a son.  He did not stagger at the promise of God in doubt, but believed and glorified God.  Romans 4:19-21 declares,

• And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.  He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

In order to see manifestations, we must consider the promises of God more than the problems. When we worry, we are focusing on the situation more than on God’s Word.

Another New Testament example is Paul and Silas. In Acts 16:25-28, we read about how when they were in jail, they began praying and singing praises to God at midnight and the other prisoners heard them. Suddenly, an earthquake shook the jail’s foundation. The prisoners were freed, but no one ran. The guard prepared to kill himself, but Paul told him not to harm himself. Paul and Silas were not ashamed to RESPOND IN FAITH, and their FAITH RESPONSE caused a supernatural manifestation.

Finally, in John 16:11-13, when the crowds got hungry after Jesus had been preaching, He took the little boy’s five loaves and two fish, gave thanks, and gave food to His disciples to distribute. There was food for all, with plenty left over.  Jesus used this as a lesson to teach us how to RESPOND to lack and insufficiency.  The final outcome went from not enough to over and above.  

For us today, this means when we are in trouble, we must not give the usual, expected RESPONSE. Jesus tells us to always, “Be of good cheer” (see John 6:50).

I exhort you to set your mind according to the Word, and not according to the world. Remember that God has already blessed you with all spiritual blessings through Christ Jesus (see Ephesians 1:3).

Responding according to the Word of God,
