It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
“ And Jesus answering saith unto them , Have faith in God” Mark 11:22
“…God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” I John 1:5
Having faith in God is having faith in the fact that He is light and there is no darkness in Him; that means my faith in God cannot produce darkness in my life.
What is darkness? Darkness stands for everything evil. You cannot believe in the light and expect that your faith in light will in any way produce darkness in your life in any form. What comes out of you will also be light.
Bible says in Ps. 36:9 “…in thy light shall we see light…” that means that in His light we have life; in His light there is life. My faith in the light produce life for me. I know am not confused about what can come from God though I may not understand everything in life. When you as a Christian who says you have been born again 5 years,10years,15 years and perpetually what is coming out of you is darkness not light, something is wrong somewhere.
John 8:12 “..I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the light which is life.” Having faith in the light is having faith in what the light gives and having faith enough in the life to apply the light to your life.
What comes out of the life ?
James 1:17 ’Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above…”
What comes out of light is good and perfect gift. When I have faith in the light, then, what I expect to come to me out of my faith in the light are good and perfect gifts. God will not break my bone to teach me a lesson or slow me down because I am going too fast. No! when you know God, you know that whatever He gives to you is to do you good. Gloria Copeland said, ‘if your walk with God is not bringing something good to your life, you are doing something wrong somewhere, you are mixing light and darkness together.’
Come and believe the light; come and follow the light even if darkness is present in any aspect, your consistently following light will drive the darkness away at one point or the other. Do not be discouraged, stay focused in the light consistently then one day you will realize every aspect of your life is light and is good continually. Soon, you will see that anywhere you turn, you walk into favour and things are falling into place for you. HAVE FAITH IN GOD is HAVE FAITH IN HIS LIGHT. This is what will make the believer swim when everybody else is sinking in such a day we live in right now.
