More faith

Hebrews 6:13-19 ERV
God made a promise to Abraham. And there is no one greater than God, so he made the promise with an oath in his own name—an oath that he would do what he promised. He said, “I will surely bless you. I will give you many descendants.”  Abraham waited patiently for this to happen, and later he received what God promised.   People always use the name of someone greater than themselves to make a promise with an oath. The oath proves that what they say is true, and there is no more arguing about it. God wanted to prove that his promise was true. He wanted to prove this to those who would get what he promised. He wanted them to understand clearly that his purposes never change. So God said something would happen, and he proved what he said by adding an oath. These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when he says something, and he cannot lie when he makes an oath. So these two things are a great help to us who have come to God for safety. They encourage us to hold on to the hope that is ours. This hope is like an anchor for us. It is strong and sure and keeps us safe. It goes behind the curtain.

God cannot lie so if during your prayers or during your fast he made you a promise concerning your life and your family,  it will be done. No matter what the situation looks like don’t give up. No matter what people say (you are people too) don’t lose faith. I know how it is when your marriage is in shambles,  your heart is broken and you can’t see the light past your pain, don’t give up, give in. Give in to the power of God that is able to keep you and do the work required for your marriage to be stronger.  Pray and trust that if he promised it,  it WILL be done. Isaiah 55:11 ERV
In the same way, my words leave my mouth, and they don’t come back without results. My words make the things happen that I want to happen. They succeed in doing what I send them to do.
If God told you your children will be blessed,  count on it.  If they are disrespectful and lazy,  parent them trusting that God will do the rest. If your bank account is empty don’t look in it,  keep trusting God and asking for his direction,  trust what he tells you and it will be done. Matthew 9:29 NIV
Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”;

Ephesians 3:19-20 ERV
Christ’s love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with everything God has for you.   With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.
