THEME: Acting By Faith
SCRIPTURE: -Matthew 9:29 “Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6 Many people do not receive from God because they do not have faith. In one of our Holy Ghost Services at the Redemption Camp in Nigeria, God said He wanted to
heal people with back pains, so He told me to call them out. When they came out, God told me to dance round them. Ridiculous as it seemed, I obeyed. I danced round them and at some point, God told me to stop. Then He said, Ask them to bend their backs now. I did so, and they could touch their toes; the back pains were gone. You need faith to get miracles. You need to believe Him even when what He is saying seems ridiculous. In Matthew 14:25-31, Jesus told Peter to come and walk on water and Peter jumped into the sea immediately. As long as he wasn’t considering the storm, he was walking on the water. The moment he considered the storm, however, he began to sink.

“And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:”
