Bible Passage: Isaiah 50 - 53
1. Acknowledge your inability (Phil. 4:13)
When self-reliance dies, faith is birthed.
Faith is a gift from God.
Repeating a mantra will not impart faith. You cannot control God.
2. Press in (James 4:8)
Call on God. Don’t wait for God to visit you.
Only God can impart faith, and then only to the man and woman who knows God.
Discover what God’s plan is, and do it.
Cleanse your heart, get serious.
3. Get hold of a promise
Whatever your situation, there is a promise in the Word to meet it.
Grow your faith like a muscle—little by little.
Walk in all the faith you have today, and you will have more tomorrow.
If God immediately answered every prayer, how would your faith grow?
I. Sam 17:36 David’s answer was based on past hard evidence of God’s deliverance. (the lion and the bear)
