Life is an adventure, a trip, a voyage, a passage
Faith is needed for the adventure, trip, voyage and passageFaith is needed for the adventure, from second to second, hour to hour, month to month
Life is an adventure, a journey, a cruise, a sailing, a crossing
Life is a journey from day to day, month to month and year to year, and faith is needed for this journey.

WHY IS FAITH NECESSARY?
1. Faith is necessary to tackle the uncertainties and unforseeables of life

2. Faith is necessary to handle the extreme wickedness and godlessness of the world (1John 5:19)
Faith must be alive in order for a person not to end as a casualty

3. It takes faith to take full delivery of our God-ordained inheritance and possession (Heb. 11:8-9)
It takes faith not to die empty-handed

4. It takes faith to overcome enemy resistance and sustain progress in life
It takes faith not to die empty-handed
WHY IS FAITH NECESSARY?
B1. Faith is necessary to handle the sudden storms, winds and floods of life

B2. Faith is necessary to prevail over the conflict with the forces of darkness (Eph. 6:10-17)

B3. Faith is necessary to actualise Divine promises and prophecies (Heb. 6:12; Josh. 24:15)

B4. Faith is necessary to cover necessary grounds and make needed impact in your lifetime (Heb. 11:32-34)
If faith is not available existence becomes existence without relevance, age without change
You need the force of faith for your existence to be meaningful and impactful

THE PROCESS OF FAITH:
1. Hear the Voice of the Lord – receive the Voice of direction and instruction (Gen. 12:1,4)

2. Possess the backing of Scripture (Matt. 18:16)
The witness of His Voice plus the witness of His Word produces a force that no power can stop

3. Charge your conviction with His Voice and Word to you (Heb. 11:6)
Upgrade your belief system
If what you heard has not changed your belief then you have not heard well
What you receive always determines what you believe and what you believe always defines what you become

4. Identify responsibilities to embrace with the Word (Deut. 28:1-2)
For every possibility in God there is a responsibility for man
For every promise there is a premise

5. Take practical steps with the Word (1Thess. 1:3; 2Thess. 1:11)
You don’t see power until you work faith
There is no victory for the lazy – Gloria Copeland
Whatever you are trusting God for, there is work to do

6. Celebrate every victory along the way (Gen. 1)
You don’t see power until you work faith

THE PROCESS OF FAITH:
B1. Understand the Will of God for your life for the moment (1John 5:14; 1Kings 17:1)
Faith begins where the Will of God is known
The knowledge of God’s Will is the birthplace of faith and confidence
Confidence in life escalates when you know what God wants
The will of God is answered prayer waiting to be prayed

B2. Connect the revealed will of God to the written will of God to guarantee fulfilment (Ps. 68:11)

B3. Renew your mind with the Voice or Word of God to you (Rom. 12:1-2)
One major purpose of Scripture is the renovation of mentality; it takes a changed mind to experience a changed life
A change of thought will translate into a change of result

B4. Identify instructions to obey (Ex. 23:25)

B5. Proceed into practical obedience of Word (2Cor. 5:7)
Faith is not just a talk, faith is a walk (2Cor. 5:7)

B6. Praise God both in advance and in appreciation of every desired result (John 6:11)
Faith is not just a talk, faith is a walk (2Cor. 5:7)

THE OUTCOME OF FAITH:
1. Victory over the forces of darkness (1John 5:4; Eph. 6:16; Luke 10:19; Mark 16:17)
Faith equals victory; the presence of faith is the guarantee of victory
Victory cannot be lacking if faith is not absent; defeat cannot be present if faith is present
For a man or woman in faith to be defeated by the forces of evil is an impossibility

2. Connection with the Blessing of God (Gal. 3:9; Ps. 27:13)
Faith is your access to the Blessings and your escape from the curses

RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE YEAR 2021:
To experience release, recovery and replication in our lives and endeavours we must facilitate release, recovery and replication for the Kingdom (Jam. 4:8; Ps. 18:25; Luke 5:1-5; 1Sam. 1:11; 2Kgs. 4:9-10)
When you face Kingdom assignment, God faces your personal harassment
When you face yourself you live with less but when you face the Lord you live for large; no devil can measure your size
When you take one step towards God, He will take more steps towards you than you can count.
If you are lost in God you can no longer be lost in this world
Don’t wait for things to happen for you this year, HAPPEN THEM!

RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE YEAR 2021 – SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Fruit bearing/soul-winning assignment (Gen. 1:28; Isa. 27:6; John 15:16; Rev. 22:2; Ps. 92:13-14; Isa. 61:3; John 15:1-2,16)
By the end of the year, you should be able to point to 12 souls that have not only been invited to church but fully planted in the church
We shall have fruit bearing cards to record the details of those invited to church

2. Kingdom enlargement praying (Matt. 6:9-10; 9:36-38; Ezek. 36:37-38; Luke 10:1-2; Zech. 10:1)
This is praying in your personal time for the enlargement of the Kingdom
Prayer bulletins shall be made ready so that you know what to pray about

3. Kingdom expansion giving (Ezra 6:14; Luke 7:3-6)
Kingdom expansion giving is investing monthly to expand the Kingdom; beyond regular tithes and offering
A card for Kingdom expansion giving will be printed and given to you
