Understanding the 6 Phases of Faith.

I have told you these things so that you won’t abandon your faith (John 16:1).
Understanding the six phases of faith helps us not to abandon our faith. It helps us to understand that we are just going through a phase and it’s all part of God’s plan.

· Dream Phase - Everything starts with a dream and if you don’t know what your dream is, serve until you see it.
· Decision Phase - Nothing is going to happen with your dream until you wake up and put it into action.
· Delay - Sometimes God delays us in order to develop us.
· Difficulty - God will sometimes use difficulty to help us grow. When you go through difficult times, what happens “to you” is not nearly as important as what happens “in you”.
· Dead End and Deliverance
If you have ever had a dream you have probably faced a time when you feel like you’ve come to a Dead End. It’s that place where you know you can’t afford to go backward and you can’t see your way forward.

· It’s Moses and the children of God in the desert with the Red Sea in front of them and Pharaoh’s army behind them.

Without God’s intervention, they would never reach the Promised Land.
· It’s like David facing Goliath. He wasn’t about to run backward but without God’s help he wasn’t going to survive running forward.

It’s the place when we feel like we’ve come too far to go backwards but we just can’t see our way forward without some help from God.
· There is a point in every one of our lives when we have to move from “believing in God” to “believing God”.
· When we move from believing in Jesus to believing Jesus.
· When we move from believing in God’s Word to believing God’s Word.
It takes more than the power of positive thinking to open up an opportunity when a dead end is in front of you.

The deliverance we desire depends on someone greater than us.
There comes a time in all of our lives when our faith will demand that we stop relying on ourselves.

Faith is believing God not just believing in God.

The best response to a dead end is to expect God to act.

Here is an example of moving from Dead End to Deliverance.
When we come to a dead end, the best thing for us to do is to expect God to act. To believe He can make a way where there seems to be no way.

Luke 18:27 [NIV] What is impossible with men is possible with God.
What are you expecting God to do in your current situation?
