Hebrews 11:11 “And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.”
Enabled because she she considered God faithful to his promises.
What will you be enabled to do because you believe God is faithful to his promises? What will you receive because you have an unwavering faith? What will you be strengthened to do that is beyond your own abilities, as a result of your faith?
Your faith is the game changer. God responds to your faith.
As a teenager, my parents would say these magical 5 words which would keep me on the right path. Before I would leave for a date night they would say “we have faith in you.” They didn’t preach at me. They didn’t nag me. They simply told me they had faith in me. Faith in me to make the right choices. Faith in me to do the right thing. Now do you think there was any way I was going to go out and mess that up? Their parenting technique was brilliant! We have faith in you. It drew me in to their plans.
My husband now says the same thing to me before I take a stage. It’s his “go get ’em tiger” pep talk. I have faith in you. He believes I will do great things. He sees something in me I sometimes don’t see in myself. He has faith in me, and it brings out the best in me.
When someone has faith in you, you’re willing to bring your best for them. And the same is true for God. Your faith in him draws him in and he just can’t resist showing up in your life to work! Sarah was enabled to do the impossible because she had faith that God would do what he said he would do. AND HE DID.
What has God promised you? Really, do you even know? If you haven’t studied his promises to you, then how can you specifically tell God you have faith in him to follow through? Have you ever prayed God’s promises over your life? Oh this is powerful stuff right here. Let me teach you how.
What are you needing in your life right now? Do you need guidance and direction? Do you need provision? Are in need of healing or strength, peace or wisdom?

YOU WOULD GOOGLE IT. The google knows everything. So use this tool for God’s promises. Did you know the google knows every one of God’s promises and within seconds it can give you a list of scriptures which match anything you’re needing in your life? It’s magical!

God has not changed. Whatever he promised then, he promises today. Whatever he did for them, he can do for you. Do not forget, you are the treasured daughter of the almighty, approach the throne and know you can make your requests.
Scripture tells us we often have not because we ask not. Don’t let that be you. Don’t let you home go unblessed because you didn’t ask for God’s blessings to begin with. Don’t wander around in confusion and frustration because you failed to pray for direction. God is faithful to his promises. Know his promises. Claim them as yours. And consider him faithful to his promises.
God, we have faith in you. We believe you can and will do everything you have promised us. I’m counting on you.

Nahhhhh, girl you’ve got a cell phone in your hand and that cell phone holds every single scripture, every translation, and every study ever done on that scripture. Are you using it?
