Strengthened In Faith

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 4:

16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”

19 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.

20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,

21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

FATHER is not reluctant to do the miraculous when it comes to HIS Divine Intent and HE expects us to waver not at HIS promises to us.  HE expects us to become strengthened in faith.  As we are strengthened in faith, we will give glory to Our Heavenly Father because we have become fully convinced that what HE has promised to us, HE is willing and able to perform.

What is the fruit of your lips?  Are you giving FATHER glory prior to the physical manifestation of HIS promise or are you remaining silent?  In Hebrews chapter 13, it is written by THE SPIRIT:

15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Abraham did not consider what he saw or felt as he was remaining steadfast in The Word given to him by FATHER.  How many of us would expect our body to perform in a youthful manner at the age of 100?  How many of us would expect a dead womb to come alive?  Yet Abraham continued to give glory to GOD resulting in him being strengthened in faith.  As we continuously glorify FATHER and HIS Word toward us, we activate an expectation of manifestation of The Word to come forth in us.  The fruit of our lips then erases fear, uncertainty, and doubt from our consciousness.  Faith expresses itself in an increasing strength within us.  Our spirit hears The Word coming from our lips thus reinforcing the promise given to us by FATHER.  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God!  Let our confession be pure so that our hearts hear only the pure Word coming from our lips.

Let us not be moved by others who would confess over us  that which is contrary to The Word.  We must excuse ourselves and distance ourselves from their negative confession for the fruit of their lips is based on what they see in the temporal state.  Abraham did not consider his own body and allow the temporary state of his body to rob him of a blessing.  Neither should we so let us give FATHER the glory for the promises HE has given us.  Let us patiently become strengthen in faith as we await the manifestation of HIS promise.
