I am, again, going to interrupt our series on I Corinthians. I want to share with you a conversation I had
with a gentleman, yesterday. But, first, let me give you the background.
The man used to be a contractor in Florida and he had crews working for him. One crew was Haitian.
One of the men from another crew stole some of the Haitians’ equipment.
The contractor told him to give it back and that “you don’t want to mess with the Haitians.” The man
didn’t give the equipment back. So, the next day, the Haitians told the contractor that they “shook the
chicken foot.” That meant that they used voodoo to curse the man. Shortly there after the man that
stole the equipment got into a car accident. Was it coincidence or was it dark power?
The point that I want to make is not about the power of darkness, but, about our conviction to the
power of light! It is amazing to me that people are more committed to lesser things than Christians are
to the greatness of the power of God in their lives! The Haitians were serious! They expected results.
Do you, when you pray, have the same conviction as these people do, or do you pray and then don’t
follow through with expectation, enthusiasm and belief? Do you believe that GOD will give you the
desires of you heart?
Psalm 37:4 (KJV)
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
How often do you come to God’s great throne and EXPECT him to grant you your petition and how often
do you stand firm on that belief without wavering until you get your deliverance.
Hebrews 4:16 (KJV)
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to
help in time of need.
Mark 11:22-24 (KJV)
22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou
cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them.
Our conviction, our stand, our commitment to what we believe should be GREATER than any unbeliever
to their cause.
When God says to cast your cares on him for He cares for you, DO YOU? Not only to cast your cares on
God, BUT, to leave them there and go on your merry way rejoicing.
When God says you are a SUPER CONQUEROR (Rom. 8:37) do you walk into every situation with that
mind set?
This works with every aspect of God’s Word. Stop pussy footing around and expect to get results. It
won’t work. God demands believing and believing is an action verb! To believe you must act!Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
6 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 rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Psalm 37:5-6 (KJV)
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
It is time to stop toying with God and His Word and to walk as a son or daughter of God and to shine as
lights in this crooked and perverse world and the only way to do this is to commit and BELIEVE!
