3 Keys to Mustard Seed Faith | Hestina’s Jewels

Praise The Lord Successful People!

Today’s declaration of the day is this: Keep God first, keep moving forward, and always remember that mustard seed faith, moves mountains!

Faith isn’t something we’re born with. It’s something you work at everyday like a muscle. And when we continue to work the muscle, it grows stronger. The same holds true for faith.

Here are 3 steps you can take to help you grow in faith.

  1. Study God’s Word

The word of God is powerful. It can cut through confusion and deception quickly, allowing you to renew your mind and strengthen your faith.

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2: 15 (NKJV)

  1. Renew your mind

Have you ever seen a hamster on a wheel? It’s just running and running but not going anywhere. It’s doing the same thing and getting the same result. The mind works like that. Renewing the mind means changing the way you think so that we can determine “what is that good, pleasing and perfect will of God.”

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12: 2 (NKJV)

  1. Faith, trust and consistency are key

God recognizes your faith. God rewards your faith. Amazing things begin to happen—begin to shift—when we exercise our faith. When we begin to activate our “mustard seeds” it builds our confidence and trust in God. Faith releases the resources of heaven into our situation. And when God steps in, everything changes! Trusting God strengthens our faith and our hope in His word.

Make this declaration with me:

I declare that I have faith in God.

I declare that I do ask in faith.

I declare that I will not doubt God.

I declare that my faith is growing.

I declare that I produce the fruit of faith.

I believe in my prayers and know God hears then!

You Are More Than Your Mistakes

Blessings All You Wonderful People!

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control] – 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

Can I share something with you? I mean really be honest? Listen very carefully: you are more than your mistakes!

You may have messed up more times than you can count, we all have. But if the only smart decision you ever made was to give your life to the Lord, you are doing great!

You were smart enough to make such a life-changing decision. Now, I want you to focus–feed your faith by focusing on what is good and not the bad. Take time to look at and celebrate what you’ve done right. Don’t just focus on how you’ve stumbled. Let joy rise in your heart. Learning to be who God called you to be is a lifelong process. Be encouraged. You are still evolving, growing and learning.

Say this with me…

I gave my life to the LORD and that makes me one smart person!

I am forgiven for every wrong decision I’ve made.

I receive God’s love, His mercy and His grace.

I am moving forward and I am made stronger and wiser from every wrong decision.

God is increasing me in wisdom and in stature.

I am increasing in favor with God and with man.

I declare and decree I have soundness of mind and the ability to make sound decisions, not fear-based, emotional, or impulsive decisions. But sound decisions that please God.

I’m not stupid! I’m not crazy! I’m not an underachiever!

I’m an overcomer through Jesus Christ!

I love God’s word and I declare I walk in His wisdom and His grace! Glory to God!

Blessings & Love from my heart to yours,

Praise the Lord All You Great People!

Today’s Word Gem: We were created for God’s Glory.

I will confess and praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify your name forevermore. Psalms 86:12 (AMPC) 

Child of God, the book of Isaiah is clear: I, we, YOU, were created to glorify—attest to the magnificence of God.

When we glorify Him—bring Him honor through our words, actions and thoughts—we acknowledge His majesty. We openly and boldly confess that we value and esteem Him above all else. Not out of obligation, but sincere gratitude.

God made us to magnify His greatness and glory! So, continue to glorify Him through your faith (trust), and your your obedience.

Blessings & Love from my heart to yours,

Hello All You Awesome People!

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) 

A good word on this day: God has and WILL continue to do well on your behalf. He continues to protect us, nurture us and assure us even in the midst of life’s trials or hard circumstances. It’s okay to trust Him. In fact, we should trust Him at ALL times.

For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:1 (NLT) 

The Word promises that that we are granted grace and glory–He is our light and shield and promises to withhold no good thing for us. So don’t get discouraged especially when things don’t go the way you want or expect them to.

Remember the Lord grants favor and honor. He does not hold back any blessing from those who live innocently.

Did this message empower and encourage you? I like to think the word of God is a battering ram and a refreshing wind. We serve a 5-star kind of God. Don’t you agree?

Today’s Word:  Faith is the Key

F – Freedom:  STAND fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Ga.5:1 

A – Assurance: And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17

I – Integrity:  So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands. Psalms 78:72

T – Truth: God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4: 24

H – Hope: I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. – Psalms 130:5

Always remember: faith is the key.
