I Challenge Your Faith!

By Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye

Romans 1:17
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

While holding services in Lagos, Nigeria, (with several congregations that gathered at the church), I  challenged all of the people, to activate their faith.

I told them that I wanted to prove to them that Miracles do happen when you believe God, and when you agree together.

I had them come up to the front of the Church and pray to God for their needs.

Then after they prayed, I asked them to hold hands, and agree together, to claim these needs  and believe God to bring them to pass.

They all prayed and believed and we all agreed, and we said AMEN! God poured out massive answers to many of them.

Many were healed, many received jobs, some received answers they didn't expect.

They even ran to my hotel where I was staying--the next morning, to report all the massive miracles.

I did nothing but prayed and agree with them. God did it all!

There is so much power in Faith, especially when we agree as the body of Christ!

Romans 5:2
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Matthew 8:20 says, For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

This is powerful!

Jesus yearned that we would grasp  faith, instead of doubting.

You can gather anywhere and believe God and pray with each other. Out in a field, on the streets and even under a tree.And when you agree together, God will answer you!

I have seen this over and over again. Countless times!

God is with you and will hear your prayers and see your faith wherever you are!

Did you know that doubt and worry blocks our faith? Yes it is true!
Hebrews 11:6
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.

Jesus would not go to towns where people did no believe.

John 12:36 Believe in the light, then, while you have it, so that you will be the people of the light.” [ The Unbelief of the People ] After Jesus said this, he went off and hid himself from them.

When the  Israelites did not win wars, they were not believing in Jehovah God, and they faced many curses, because of their idol worship and paganism.

They turned to other gods for their needs. They did not believe and trust in God alone, and their blessings were blocked.

And when God spoke to them--to turn from their wicked ways, and turn to Him, they obeyed and tore down all the idols and got rid of their paganism.

The Lord not only lifted the curses and blessed them, He also helped them win their wars!



 

When Jesus shared about that tiny mustard seed, He was meaning, that if we have that 'little tiny amount' of faith, that we could activate our faith to move mountains or do anything in God.

Jesus knows the power of Jehovah, God and is willing to help us, if we use our faith in God.

Jesus challenging the people to have faith in God. When people in the Bible activated their faith, Jesus blessed them and gave them answers, and He made sure to point out that they had 'great faith'!

 For those who didn't believe he said, "O ye of little faith!"

Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Often times, people allow worry, and doubt to rule their hearts and minds.( I know, I have been guilty of that myself at times!)

When faith is left dormant, and not activated daily and kept strong, then doubt begins to creep in.

We need to activate our faith and pray and agree for the needs we face each day.

Never stand alone either in your prayers, and be discouraged!

Pray together with someone who also has  faith, in agreement and trust God.

Expect a miracle and it will happen!

I am not saying it's not right to pray alone in your closet, for we all need that time alone with God too! To love and worship him, to listen to him and to be refreshed.

I guess I am challenging you to activate your faith to believe!

I challenge your faith!

James 2:26
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

When  our faith is activated and focused on God, our faith comes alive in Christ!

 If we say we believe in God, we must show it by our faith--Through prayer, praying and agreeing with others and believing God for the answer.

Expecting the miracle to happen. You will see results!

This is faith:

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

By  believing in the things we can't see, and hope in our God, the Lord will answer.

If you would like me to pray and agree with you with any need, I invite you to contact me and we can activate that faith, and believe God together!

Did you know we are to STAND and REJOICE in faith?

Let us activate our faith so that blessings of God can pour out before us, as we go forth believing and walking in the faith of God.

Never give up on God! He is are only source of life and will help us through all we face!

He knows our every need and cares about the big and little ones we face. "He will never leave us nor forsake us!"


When we expect others to answer our needs, I am speaking of when we depend on man to meet them, it's the same as turning to other gods.

Remember, Jesus said in, Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

So when you have a need, Instead of turning to man to get the things you need, or to provide for you, you simply pray to God. This is true faith!

Have your friends pray for you who are prayer warriors! :)

God knows the desires of our hearts and he also knows our intentions too.

When God blessed Israel and brought them out of Egypt, He sent them to their land of Promise. He was blessing them and setting them free.

When they got there, they started getting into sin, doubt, and turning to other gods again, and not keeping their faith. God put his foot down and said "Enough! Read the scripture below...

Deuteronomy 31:20
For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.

God gave us a new covenant with Jesus and blessed us with so many promises in the Bible, and with our faith in Christ, nothing is impossible and the promises and benefits are for us!

If we only believe and lean on God alone He will cause things to happen and bless us for our faith.

We CAN be confident totally in God! God will bless a righteous man/woman who has real faith in Him. AMEN

2 Timothy 2:22
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Galatians 5:5
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

1 Timothy 2:8
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

Romans 4:20
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

Believing together in Faith! Claim it and believe it! Stand in the hope!

Agreeing together brings REAL POWER in the Holy Spirit, when two or three pray and believe God! God is with you and hears you!

Act on Faith! God will act by answering you!

Luke 11:9
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you
.

You see, our answers do not come when we lean on things or people--they come when we activate our faith in God!
