Imagine pt 6


Just keep Growing!


Charles Spurgeon (the Prince of Preachers) said that if someone truly desires to be a pillar in the Church they must be “Firm in there Faith”


Little by Little communicates to the Believer that we never really arrive we need to be “progressive” which means getting BETTER than we’ve been before!



This is a direct instruction given to the Nation Israel as they crossed over….


Deuteronomy 7:21-23 MSG ”So don’t be intimidated by them. God, your God, is among you—God majestic, God awesome. God, your God, will get rid of these nations, bit by bit. You won’t be permitted to wipe them out all at once lest the wild animals take over and overwhelm you. But God, your God, will move them out of your way…”


Matthew 12:44-45 NKJV “”Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation.”“


Talk about the building blocks of Faith as per Mandy and Dad:

Primary school

High school




Here is a simple formula to help you get started on the road to STANDING FIRM IN FAITH that will begin to produces results.





Mark 4:9 NKJV ”And He said to them, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”


What you allow into your 5 physical senses will affect your spiritual growth!


Mark 4:24-25 NKJV “Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”



Your SHOUT must have CLOUT!


Proverbs 10:17-22 NKJV ”He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray. Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool. In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.”


The benefits of having a positive Faith and been intentional about our WORDS & CONFESSION.



James 2:14-19 NKJV “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!”


Remember actions follow words, so “Your actions” will either defeat you, or they activate & establish your victory”

James 1:20-24 speaks about been DOERS of the Word

Hebrews 4:1-8 speaks about the word never profited them not been MIXED with FAITH


James 2:25-26 NKJV “Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

  • It’s vital if we are to “Keep Growing” in Faith, that we ask ourselves “Am I living by faith and doing the Word?” or have I just become religious about serving God and going to Church out of HABIT!!!! (It is a good habit but it’s not effective for Growth or Impact)


  • Always complaining or questioning the small things.
  • Saying everybody feels like or is saying this (and it’s only me, myself and I-Rene)



A lot of people never realise that one of the biggest benefits of HUMILITY is your are able to RECEIVE from God & Others!

Pride always struggles to receive things from God & People it creates a false sense of independence and is often rooted in self-righteousness (which always leads to spiritual blindness)


Mark 5:29-30 NKJV “Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?””


– FEELING & HEALING always follow BELIEVING, SAYING & ACTING. (Remember this women had said, if I can only touch the hem of His garment I will be healed)

  1. V27 she heard
  2. V28 she said
  3. V28 she did it (acted)
  4. V29 she received
  5. V33 she told it


– Believe you have received what you asked for even when it doesn’t feel or look like anything is happening.

– BEGIN TO CREATE AN IMAGE (SEE) OF THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT WHICH IS THAT 2ND FAITH WORD (Elpis: to anticipate something with pleasure, be expectant and confident)



Mark 5:32-34 NKJV “And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.””



– There is Power in your Testimony, it confirms what you believe and therefor cements your victory and helps other people’s faith get stronger.


Psalm 28:7 NKJV ”The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.“


Tell others something good that God has done for you Share with them your Gratitude that He is in your life and working things for His Good!!!!!


Four Confessions Every Believer should live by DAILY

  1. CONFESS WHO CHRIST IS: By daily praising Him regardless how you feel or what’s going on around you with the mindset He is Alive and Living in YOU (John 4:24 / Matthew 10:32)
  2. CONFESS WHAT HIS DONE FOR YOU It’s so important and valuable to give Him GLORY for what He has already done (Communion is a wonderful way to do this 1 Corinthians 11:22-30)

– I am a brand new person

– I am the righteousness of God

– The Holy Spirit lives in me

– I walk daily in the Wisdom and Protection of God

– I love and walk in the Peace that passes understanding

  1. CONFESS WHAT HIS DOING THROUGH YOU You have become the extension of God on this Earth and when you are available He will work through you daily (Acts 17:28…In Him we live and move etc)
