We have been studying the difference between little faith and great faith. Read the whole passage of Mathew 8 and join us to make these observations that we titled:


Finger #1. Faith operates on what is in the NOW (what is on hand) - the issues presently confronting us in the NOW. These are issues that demand immediate answers and cannot be postponed and delayed any further. Hebrew 11:1 tells us that, "Now faith is" or in other words, Faith is now". The evidence of Faith is produced in the NOW and is the substance of our present expectation or present hope. Whereas HOPE ordinarily is in the future, faith is in the NOW.

Finger #2. Whereas faith comes by hearing, hope comes from faith. Concrete faith births concrete hope that all we are expecting will surely come to pass. So, it is faith that brings hope to fruition or to a reality.

Finger #3. Hope gives us reason to continue holding on to all of God promises that are not for the NOW but Faith manifests all of God's promises to come to pass in the NOW. I shall see Jesus Christ when this life comes to an end - this is my hope as a Child of God but the Lord has forgiven all my sins right now and has healed me of all my diseases - this is in the now brought about by my faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. I am healed and being healed now - this is faith. I shall be healed of anything the devil shall try to stick on my body - this is my hope and my expectation.

Finger #4. Faith brings hope to the present and hope brings faith to the future. As long as you have faith, you can never be hopeless. Yet, as long as you have hope, you can never be faithless. Faith is accompanied by works or rather by action. You have to do something to demonstrate your faith. But hope is accompanied by vision. You have to see something or experience something to have hope. You have to experience salvation from sin or the new birth (born-again truly) to have hope of eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Finger #5. Great faith unlike little faith is firmly other-centered. It operates ONLY from LOVE for others and nothing else. But little faith is self-centered - doing with only your affairs and those or things around you. Little faith is the root of all selfishness and self-centeredness. Great faith is rooted in a renewed mind and produces renewed Word that calls the things that be not to become and speaks (acts on) consistently words aligned with God's power and God's love. It's goal is to bring forth the will of God on Earth and the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Prophetic Insight From the Mission Fields of Africa: See Your Future!

The LORD said to me, "You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that My word is fulfilled."—Jeremiah 1:12 (NIV)

There must be a shift in you in order for you to enter into your new season. You are leaving an old season and shifting into a new season. God desires to give you prophetic insight to see your new season.

Like Jeremiah, what are your excuses, "It's too hard! I can't move forward. My past season was too difficult. How can I possibly move forward into a new season? Sure, I want a new season, but promise me first it will be easier!"

But the lord is saying to you: "But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it." —Deuteronomy 30:14 (AMP) The Lord is saying the word of breakthrough for your new season is in your own mouth, in your mind and in your heart so that you can do it! Yes, Beloved, you can do it! Do what? All that He is commanding! Wow, isn't that encouraging?

God is Going to Touch Your Mouths

Child of God, the Lord is stretching forth His hand and touching your mouth and putting His words into your mouths. He is not going to open up doors to our future without His supernatural empowerment. The word touch in this passage implies a supernatural bestowment of divine grace and help. The Lord desires that we have the God kind of faith—which is faith like His!

To move forward into your new season will require that you develop faith for more of His grace as well as faith in His divine empowerment. Both are the two tools to receive what is needed for you to fulfill your future.

The word of the LORD came to me: "What do you see, Jeremiah?"

"I see the branch of an almond tree," he replied.

The LORD said to him, "You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that My word is fulfilled."—Jeremiah 1:9-12 (NIV)

Jeremiah's Shift

Jeremiah saw what God saw! After imparting grace to his weakness, Jeremiah was able to see his future. Beloved, if we receive His envisioning grace, our eyes will also be open to see what God sees concerning our ability.

Interestingly, Jeremiah was able to see "the branch of an almond tree." Remember, the word used for almond tree is the same Hebrew word, shaqad, which is also the word used for "watching." Shaqad is further translated to imply "the awakening one." The almond tree had blossom cups that are shaped like almonds and are the first to bud forth in its new season. One might say that the almond tree "awakens" to its new season.

Jeremiah was "awakened" to his new season. He received grace to fulfill his divine calling and then was awakened to his future. To become "awakened" means to open our eyes and see. Beloved, receive fresh envisioning grace and become awakened to your new season. There is faith being imparted from Heaven for you to fulfill your destiny.

When the Lord promises to watch over His promises, He is also committing to "protect" what He has promised. This means He will go to war for you and guard your potentials. He promises to give His angels charge over you to protect you and keep us from harm. Just as He provided for Israel a cloud by day and fire by night, He will do the same for you as He leads, guides and protects you.

See Your Future!

Beloved, it's time to see your future. You can fulfill your divine destiny. One of the evil spirits that steals destiny is the Amalekite spirit. It not only aborts destiny, but also targets leaders and those who are called to hold up their arms.

My Prayers for you is that God Almighty would grant you His grace to see: Lord, I lift You up to the Lord and ask that He would touch wherever you feel weak in your life and walk with Him. I declare, "Let the weak say I am strong!" I see God imparting you with supernatural grace that will overcome fear, doubt, loss of vision, physical infirmity and generational strongholds as well as lies and the seductions of Satan. Amen.

Now, My dear Beloved: S - H - I - F - T!

S -ee

T -error....


Our God fights for You! Amen
