Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

I have been somewhat overwhelmed at the most recent manifestations of the promises of GOD though I shouldn’t be, for such is delineated in the Word of God. As it is written, This is why the fulfillment of God’s promise depends entirely on trusting God and his way, and then simply embracing him and what he does. God’s promise arrives as pure gift. That’s the only way everyone can be sure to get in on it, those who keep the religious traditions and those who have never heard of them. For Abraham is father of us all. He is not our racial father — that’s reading the story backward. He is our faith father Romans 4:16 (MSG). God the Father has  raised-up children of Abraham who endeavor toward evidence of the good fruit as branches on the Vine who is Jesus (Matthew 3:9-10; Gal 5:22-23; John 15:1-8). In Luke 12:32, the Living Word reiterates the fact that it gives Abba Father great happiness to give me the kingdom (personalized). It is by the blood of Jesus that I am reconciled unto the Family of God – daughter of The One who calls things into existence (Romans 4:17). It is by the finished work of Christ Jesus that it is true unto me according to the Word of God. Likewise, for all “in Him” who believe and do not doubt, the WORD works through each of us (individually) for the benefit of all of us (collectively). In other words, The Blessing is upon us that we may be a blessing to establish God’s covenant on earth as it is in Heaven.

The prayer of faith that the Living Word speaks about in Mark 11:22-24 involves activating the God kind of faith. The exemplification of our faith in seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness pleases Abba Father, for by such we reflect full confidence or trust in Him who is compassionate and gracious and abounding in love and faithfulness (Matthew 6:33; Hebrews 11:6; Exodus 34:6). Faith facilitates in such a way that whosoever may believe God for whatsoever is neither evident nor common in the natural realm. Scripture relays the fact that by faith: Abel made a better offering; Enoch didn’t experience death; Noah followed God’s instructions sans a cloud in the sky; Abraham departed familiar territory for the unfamiliar as sent by God, looking forward with confidence to a city with foundations designed by God; Sarah received physical power to conceive a child long past the age; Joseph believed that God would bring him out and up regardless of the injustice experienced; Moses led the chosen out and toward the promised land; Caleb and Joshua refuted a bad report; Joshua believed that the wall would fall by unconventional means; Rahab saved her family by welcoming the spies and later gave birth to Boaz; Deborah accompanied a skeptical Barak into battle; Gideon eliminated more than 3/4 of his army for the victory; Ruth refused to leave Naomi, later married Boaz and gave birth to Obed the father of Jesse who became the father of David; Samuel anointed David who ran toward Goliath and conquered him; Elijah prevented rain for several years; Elisha asked a double portion of Elijah’s power . . . . . and Mary responded to the Angel of God, “be it unto me according to the Word of God” (Luke 1:38). This day, we believe and receive, to the glory of Abba Father, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Speak the promise . . . Harriet
