2 Peter 1:3–4 (ESV) — 3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

  1. JT – “So here we go… in our time for WHAT ABOUT THIS…  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…

 

  1. JTQuestion ONE

 

Let’s talk some more about using the promises of God to grow our faith…

Explain how this works….

 

  1. Bob

 

Hebrews 11:1 (ESV) — 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:6 (ESV) — 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

2 Peter 1:3–4 (ESV) — 3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

Luke 17:5–10 (ESV) — 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6 And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. 7 “Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table’? 8 Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink’? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’ ”

 

JT –  Question Two… From a mental standpoint…

 

You gave us some practical steps to taking a promise and bringing our thoughts into captivity around God’s promise… can you go over that again… let’s talk about this…

 

  1. Bob

 

Philippians 4:19 (ESV) — 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

 

What should you do to maximize faith building with this promise?

  1. Memorize the promise. (Just try it. It’s an easy one to memorize.)
  2. Meditate upon the promise. (Think of all the benefits that are yours in this promise and the vast storehouse of blessings.)
  3. Use the promise in prayer and in words of encouragement. (Using God’s promise in prayer is not a means of manipulation, rather it’ demonstrating a respect for God’s word, which He has “promised” is a sure way of having His attention. Using God’s promise as a means of encouraging another person is a means of encouraging yourself while you present something that is sure.)

 

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….

 

I see people working out and some are wearing masks and some aren’t… what do you think?

 

  1. Bob

 

Don’t go against what local health officials say BUT…

Unless you are around others….

If you use – make sure it’s clean

If you use – you are not getting full Oxygen

 

  1. Bob’s final comment

 

Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
