Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” God’s Word (written, living, and on-going in our hearts) is where our faith is rooted and grounded. No, we may not be able to “see” God physically but we absolutely can see, hear, and experience the effects of His Word! The same God who said, “Let there be light,” and there was light; says all kinds of great things about you so listen and anchor your trust in His Word.
Psalm 33:8-9 says, “Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere Him. 9 For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood firm.” Why should the whole Earth stand in awe of God and carry a healthy respect for Him? Because of the greatness, the reliability, and the absolute steadfastness of His Word. His Word is alive and active according to Hebrews 4:12 and so that means it is readily available to us today! Listen in and let the Holy Spirit skyrocket your faith through the trustworthiness that all God says is Truth!
So many people struggle knowing God because of other experiences and relationships they’ve experienced over time that they assign to Him. In this profoundly simple message, the Holy Spirit outlines how to recognize and deal with symptoms that we may be mis-identifying our Heavenly Father.
Many of us have grown up hearing crazy sayings about how God would "take us out" if we didn't do what we were supposed to. But is God really a mob boss who puts hits out on His kids? He tells us to fear the Lord is wisdom, but in this message you will understand He was not trying to put religious or tormenting fear on us but simply inviting us to carry a healthy respect for Him each day.
The Bible tells believers many times to, “Fear not,” yet it also says “To fear the Lord is wisdom,” so clearly there are different types of fear. In this powerful message, the Holy Spirit continues what true fear of the Lord is: It produces obedience and worship! Listen and let a healthy fear of God produce faith not doubt!
The Bible tells believers many times to, “Fear not,” yet it also says “To fear the Lord is wisdom,” so clearly there are different types of fear. In this powerful message, the Holy Spirit articulates what true fear of the Lord is: To be in awe of God, Profound Respect for His Presence, and Profound Respect for His Word and His opinion. Listen and watch a healthy fear of God produce faith not doubt!
Even though the mystery of God has been hidden throughout the ages from the rulers and the wise of this world, 1 Corinthians 2:9-14 makes it very clear that God, by His Spirit, has made them known to us! No wonder the Holy Spirit comes under such controversy among churches and church leaders – He is a key source of God’s wisdom to today’s believer (along with God’s Written Word and the Living Word Christ Himself).
From 1 Corinthians 1:17 through 1 Corinthians 2:8 Paul contrasts the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of God. There is no comparison obviously as God’s wisdom and power show their absolute supremacy in and through Christ’s cross! Paul writes all that God was doing in reconciling us to Himself through Christ was hidden throughout the ages as well as hidden from the rulers of this world for our glory. Listen and find yourself in awe of what God has done!
