Christ the Solid Rock

I stand on the authority of the Word of God. I believe the Bible is true! When I was sick with cancer, I didn't go to a healing evangelist, I went to the Word of God, and God completely healed me - no operation, no treatment - I only had God and the Bible, and that's all I needed to confound the doctors. They were shocked, they didn't believe God - but I do, I believe in a God of power, of miracles.
It takes faith to possess all the promises God has given. Real faith does not come easily, but it is a specific gift from God through the Holy Spirit and you can ask for it, as I do. First, you must come into an experience of receiving the Holy Spirit, then you can receive His gifts. In 1 Corinthians 12 there are nine gifts. One is speaking with other tongues, but when you receive this, why not also also ask for the gift of faith? If you will fight this spiritual battle, God will give a miracle - but choosing to have miracles is the hard way! Not many people have the faith to fight this battle and win. Spiritual warfare is not merely against the devil, it is also when you fight your own unbelief.
We have to believe that God can work miracles; but in order to receive we need to spend time alone with Him. In the Bible, throughout Jesus' ministry, He would withdraw to the desert to pray; how much more is this necessary for us? It is only in these times of prayer and worship that we receive our deliverance. God is our answer; He is our power; God is our strength; He is our hope and deliverer; God is everything!
'My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name. On Christ the Solid Rock I stand.'
