Redemption Racing Newsletter Nanaimo

 

The second round of the National series brought us to the island of

Victoria B.C.- in Nanaimo. The weather was great with clear skies and

warmth, making it a great day, however with dry sun and heat, comes

very dusty conditions.

 

At the riders meeting devotion I talked about growing our faith to

accomplish our God given dreams.

 

Mark 9:23 says, “Everything is possible for the person who has faith” (GNT).

 

It doesn’t say anything about our dreams or accomplishments coming

easy. Faith is like a muscle — it develops. It can be strengthened or

it can grow weak, depending on how much you use it. Much like athletes

in training. It must be worked at in order to grow in strength.  So,

how does God build your faith? Through a very predictable process.

Like everything in life, there are phases involved in accomplishing

things- growing in faith is no different.

 

Phase 1: Dream- What is the dream God has given you? You’re here on

earth for a purpose. When you discover that purpose, you’ll discover

the dream God wants you to go after.

 

“God … is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even

dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts,

or hopes” (Ephesians 3:20b TLB).

 

Phase 2: Decision- Make the decision to follow through with it. God’s

word for you is, “Go for it!”

 

“If you are like that, unable to make up your mind and undecided in

all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the

Lord” (James 1:7-8 GNT).

 

Phase 3: Delay- When things don’t happen on our timetable, we tend to

run ahead of God and create detours to make it happen. Do not detour!

You may end up making the wrong decision. You’re in God’s waiting

room. Wait for God to work his hand.

 

God says in Habakkuk 2:3, “But these things I plan won’t happen right

away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision

will be fulfilled” (TLB).

 

Phase 4: Difficulty- You’ll go through many tests in life, but God

knows what you’re going through. He’s watching, and he hasn’t

forgotten you.

 

“Even though you are temporarily harassed by all kinds of trials and

temptations. This is no accident — it happens to prove your faith,

which is infinitely more valuable than gold” (1 Peter 1:6-7 Phillips).

 

Phase 5: Dead End- Some of you are at your dead end, and you’re ready

to give up. But you’re right where God wants you! He is preparing you

for deliverance. God’s word for you is, “Hang on! Don’t give up!”.

 

“At that time we were completely overwhelmed, the burden was more than

we could bear, in fact we told ourselves that this was the end. Yet we

now believe that we had this experience of coming to the end of our

tether that we might learn to trust, not in ourselves, but in God who

can raise the dead” (2 Corinthians 1:8-9).

 

Phase 6: Deliverance- Do you expect and trust God to deliver you? He

will. But it doesn’t happen overnight. You have to go through all six

stages before God brings you to deliverance.
