Walking by Faith

This Week's Walk:

Learning about Faith and How to Grow Your Faith!


What you will find in this blog -

Encouragement - Interesting Facts - Scriptures - Recipes


Welcome! I am Rev. Yvonne Pettiford with Hope in the Word Ministries. My purpose is to share the Word of God with my readers and to teach and equip others on applying the Word of God to their lives and to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In a world full of hopelessness, anxiety, and fears I want to let my readers know that there is hope through Christ Jesus. He and only He can give you salvation, peace, joy, healing, and hope. How do you get to know Him? Through God's Word! Your faith and trust in Him can grow by reading and applying His Word to your life. Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Blessings everyone and welcome to THE FAITH WALK!

SALADS AND SOUPS!

DID YOU KNOW...

There are some names in the Bible that don't get much recognition - one such name is Onesiphorus! Paul asked the Lord to grant mercy to him and his household. He refreshed Paul, was not ashamed of his chains, sought him out, and ministered to him. May we all be like this man, who refreshes others, is not ashamed of them even when others reject them, and seeks them out! WHAT A TESTIMONY!

Where can you find this story? 2 Timothy 1:16-19 CHECK IT OUT!

STEP INTO THE WEEK WITH FAITH!


No matter what walk of life you come from - married, single, divorced, male, female, young, old, rich, poor, city life, country life - we all face things during the week! We might have happy times, sad times, frustrations, joys, sorrows, challenges, difficult decisions, blessings, etc. Whatever the case may be - WALK IT OUT BY FAITH!


I believe very strongly that no matter what we are going through - God's Word is our source for everything in our lives! This is why I give many scriptures to help you in your walk of faith with the Lord!


WHAT IS FAITH? Faith is having complete trust, assurance, and confidence in God. Faith is confidence in what we hope for and the assurance and confidence that the Lord is working in our lives even though we may not see Him working things out for our good. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


HOW DO YOU HAVE FAITH? You can increase your faith through prayer and the study of God's Word - the BIBLE. Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

  1. Feed your spiritual life by reading the scriptures

  2. Rely on the Holy Spirit in obedience and in prayer

  3. Trust God during the trials of your life


AN EXAMPLE OF FAITH: In the book of Matthew 9:27-30, two blind men followed Jesus and asked Him to heal them. Jesus asked them "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They answered, Yes, Lord." Jesus touched their eyes and said "According to your faith let it be to you." And their eyes were opened.


OTHER EXAMPLES OF FAITH: Read...

Luke 8:43-48 (The Woman with the Issue of Blood)

Daniel 3:13-25 (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego) Luke 17:11-19 (The Ten Lepers)



Who Showed Faith To God Even Though He Was Thrown Into The Lion's Den?

  • 0%David

  • 0%Daniel

  • 0%Paul



How to have faith when....

  1. It seems like God doesn't answer your prayers! (Read Matthew 21:22)

  2. You're sick and you can't get well! (Read Matthew 4:23)

  3. You've lost your job and don't know what to do? (Read Philippians 4:19)

Please know that God is with you every step of the way! Trust in Him!

I John 5:14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.


RESOURCES: Love to read? Here is a great resource for reading about the faith of Christian men and women: WHEN FAITH IS FORBIDDEN by Todd Nettleton


My Personal Testimony of Faith! At one point in my life I was a single mother of three small children. I had no money, no job, no education. I sat in the car (not my own) and said "Lord, you said you would take care of us! Here we are!" I didn't know where He would take me in my walk with Him, but I had to trust Him! He led me on a path to getting my education - Bachelor of Science Degree - Master's Degree in Education - Being an Ordained Minister - a beautiful family (husband, children, grandchildren) - SO MANY BLESSINGS! I had to follow Him by FAITH! Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Rev. Yvonne Pettiford


PLEASE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL TESTIMONIES OF FAITH BELOW! LET US ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER!


To have this Walk of Faith - you must have a relationship with Jesus Christ!

If you don't know Jesus as your personal savior, I encourage you to give your life to Jesus Christ today! Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast.


Prayer for Eternal Life:

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross, and died for my sins and now I want to turn from my sins. I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. I invited Jesus Christ to come into my life as my personal Savior. Thank you, Jesus for dying for my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. Amen
