FAITH WORKS by Bill Burns:


Mark 9:23  “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”


And again in Mark 10:27  “With God all things are possible.”


All things are promised in the Word of God, which is His covenant with us through Jesus Christ.


Hebrews 7:22   by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.




All the promises are Yes (spoken and written) and Amen (guaranteed).


The Path of Life


Psalm 16:11  You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.


The Path of Life in this season is the spiritual journey that we now find ourselves on.


In my vision of the path of life I saw rest places where self-examination was to take place.  These were places that were designed for you to first ask this question:  “What do I believe about this subject?”


Each rest stop was for the purpose of challenging your belief (faith) on individual subjects.

The Stops


1.    Do I believe that God’s covenant promises are real and that they are for me to receive by faith?  If you believe that they are, then go after them.


Matthew 21:22  "And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."


2.    Do you believe that faith works?


In Matthew 9:29 Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be to you.”


Luke 17:19  And He said to him, "Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well."


3.    Do you really believe in God’s covenant promise of healing?


Isaiah 53:5  But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.


So examine yourself.  Are you in faith?


2 Corinthians 13:5   Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you are disqualified.


4.    Do you believe that God wants you to prosper?


3 John 1:2   Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.


In All Things!  To be successful.


Psalm 1:

1  Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

3  He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.


5.    Do you believe that God will give you strength when needed?


Ephesians 6:10   Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.


Proverbs 24:5  A wise man is strong, Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength.


2 Timothy 2:1  You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.


6.    Do you believe that God will lead and guide you?


Romans 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.


Isaiah 58:11  The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.


John 16:13  "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”


Guide you into victory?


Romans 8:37  Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.


2 Corinthians 2:14  Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.


7.    Do you believe that God is in you, for you, and with you to help and empower you?


Colossians 1:27  To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.


1 Corinthians 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?


John 14:16  "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—“


If you involve yourself in this process, then God will help you, restore you, and make you whole again—ready for the journey into this new season.



The Trumpet:  I am coming to you in this season to help you amplify your faith so that it will work for you.  You must use your faith if you want it to get strong.  My people should have a strong faith that works for them.  1 Corinthians 16:13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
