Where Is Your Faith? (Part 1) (Luke 8:22-25)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, December 10, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

They were going over the Word of God. His word is the final say. Do you believe that the Word of God is of God and should be kept. Not one church going person will say that the bible is not Gods word and yet most don't follow it as truth. The bible is one of the promises of God given to all. It's not a novel or history book but Gods word.

Where is your faith?

He has given you promises and yet when the storms come, you're not ready. Worry which is from Satan comes into our lives, we let it control us besides having the faith in the Word of God. Jesus no longer sleeps because He is in a new form. Always there, always waiting, always listening. How many times have you looked at the storm in your life and realized that you're in jeopardy? When your world turns upside down there will be times when Gods word will be the last thing on your mind. Just as in the boat with the disciples, Jesus wasn't worried because he was asleep try the terrible storm. Romans 8:28 God wasn't worried then and He's not worried now. God how's your finances, He knows where it comes from and knows where it going. But, just as a person sows, so shall they reap. If your foolish with your finances you shall reap foolishness.

Where's your faith?

You may say that you're a child of God and nothing bad will come your way. This is a lie from Satan. Satan tries everyone and more so to a Christian because he wants them to stumble to keep others from being saved. Trials will come and they will come more frequently for a Christian. During the storms in life one usually is more worried about the storm than they are with learning and the peace. Once one realizes that the storm can't be controlled by oneself and that God is in full control, peace will come. Nothing in this world that could ever come against us is covered in His word.

Where is your faith?

The reason one finds themselves in much jeopardy is because they don't study. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. How many open you bible when you're NOT in a church house? Oh yea of little faith... why such small faith, because one doesn't know what the truth says when a trial comes.

Where is your faith?

If your faith is in God, the Word, then it's unstoppable, unmovable. Satan can't touch you as long as you're one of Gods.

Luke 8:22-25

22Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. 23But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. 24And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him. (KJV)
