Topic - Stretch Out & Believe 

This devotion has been designed to encourage the body of Christ knowing that yes we can do all thing though Christ. Our faith is being tested and He is our only resource. Therefore we must know He keeps his promises to them that walk not after the flesh.  We trust that this lesson will bring light to those that read it.

Introduction: Stretch means a wide space or area. The space or amount between two points. We have to stretch our minds to believe God in every area of our lives. Only by faith can we enter in and believe.  Yes God has given us all a measure of faith.  Dr. Fred Price Every Increasing Faith is so true in order to trust God in all things. You must activate your faith by speaking what God says in His word. Stand on it and after done all stand praying and believing in every situation that He is a rewarded of them that diligently seek Him. Everything God promise is coming to pass. We shall accomplish and attain from the Lord. God got it all in His hands. As we keep the faith and prayer our steps are being order in His word. God plan fulfillment and realization in our life shall come to pass. All of the parts or elements are coming together. Nothing lacking or missing that God has spoken. Means your dreams, achievement or being fulfilled.  It’s the state of bearing fruit which is a result or reward that comes from action.

Psalms 119:89 (KJV)For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.


Proverbs 3:6 (KJV)  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Genesis 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Abraham lived a life of faith and trust in God. He was promise a son by his wife Sarai that was barren.  Always remember God keep His word. My word shall not return back void says the Lord.  The promise that God made to him was that Sarai would have his son not her maidservant.  Hagar had his child first because his wife Sarai commanded him go in unto her.  Because of her age and also knowing that she was barren.  After having the promise son Isaac Abraham had to trust God.  Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was old. Abraham was a man of obedience to God.  His faith was tested when God said” take now your son, your only son Isaac whom you love go to land of Moriah”. Offer him as a burnt offering for which I tell you.  And Abraham build an altered and laid his son bound upon the wood.  Abraham had enough faith to believe God and said God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering.  God is always on times but remember sometimes it only a test.

Genesis 22: 12 – Do not lay your hand on the lad or do anything to him; for I know that you fear God. Then Abraham lifted his eye behind him was a ram caught by the horns.

Hebrews 11:11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Conclusion:
 Ask and it shall be given. Not maybe but shall. As we all move forward Jesus is going to show us great and mighty things. Remember this is the Lord doing. In 2015. God is putting things together. Always remember that God did it not man. God be the glory for the great things He has done. Hold on to God unchanging hand build your hope around the maker and win the prize. With God all things are possible to them that believe. Walk on by faith an stretch out on His word.
