Daring Faith

“Daring faith requires taking risk. It requires the courage to step up and face the giants . . . and to face the unknown. It might be easier to stay in your comfort zone, but when you bravely step out to where God has called you, history is made and lives are changed forever. You must be bold and daring to live an extraordinary life of faith. Join Pastor Rick for Saddleback’s newest series, Daring Faith, and learn what it means to have a bold, unshakable faith that gives you the courage to impact the world around you.” (credit: Saddleback Church)


Daring Faith: Key To Miracles – Part 1

“Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

Faith is seeing from God’s point of view

“What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen and to be certain of things we do not yet see.” Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

What happens when we see with eyes of fear?

Numbers 13-14 – Spying out the Promised Land

We exaggerate our difficulties

“It’s a magnificent land BUT the people living there are powerful, and theiR cities are fortified and large! What’s more, we saw Anakim giants there!” Numbers 13:27b-28

“. . . other spies said, “They’d crush us!” So the majority report of the spies was negative.” Numbers 13:31-32

We underestimate our abilities

“We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” Numbers 13:33

We get discouraged

“Then all the people began weeping aloud, and they carried on all night!” Numbers 14:1

We start to gripe about our lives

“All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron . . . ‘We wish we had died in Egypt!’ they wailed, ‘Or even here in the wilderness!’” Numbers 14:2

We eventually give up and blame God

“Why is the Lord bringing us to this land to be killed with swords . . . We’d be better off going back to Egypt!” Numbers 14:3

What happens when we see with eyes of faith?
Faith shrinks my problems

Faith opens the door for a miracle

Jesus said, “Have faith in God! If you have faith in God and you don’t doubt, you could tell this mountain to get up and jump into the sea, and it would. Whatever you ask for in prayer will be yours, IF you only have the faith.” Mark 11:22-24

Faith turns God-given dreams into a reality

Jesus said, “According to your faith it will be done to you.” Matthew 9:29

Faith gives me the power to hold on during tough times

“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we’re not crushed and broken. We’re perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We’re attacked but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up and keep going!” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NLT)
