So many of us would like to think that we trust God, but how many of us really do when we face trying situations in our lives? I was talking with a friend of mine recently who was tempted to take revenge into his own hands against somebody who has done him much wrong. I told him to give place to wrath and let God repay them for what they’ve done. As the Bible tells us, we are to give place to wrath:
Romans 12:19, “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
Do you know that even when we become bitter and allow ourselves to brew over what somebody has done to us… that we are not trusting God to judge rightly in the matter on our behalf?
There are countless everyday experiences just like this that reflect the trust that we have in God. The fact is… if God’s Word gives us an assurance and we continue to ponder the matter… we don’t really believe God in that area of our life!
James 2:23, “And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”
It is time that we take God and His Word seriously and BELIEVE what He’s telling us! This sounds like a simple matter, and it is… but this one truth will separate a mature God-fearing and God-trusting believer from the rest of the church today. God is relying on you to believe what He tells you… for without faith it is impossible to please Him:
Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Pastor Scott Bitcon shares years of ministry wisdom in his new online video training series specifically on inner healing and deliverance. This series contains real-life deliverances videos recorded live!!
In the early chruch, miracles were commonplace. The blind were seeing, the deaf were hearing, demons were being cast out, and even the dead were being raised! There are no Biblical reasons as to why such miracles should cease to exist today!
Today after the service, a small group of us prayed over a man's leg (which was almost 2 inches shorter than the other) and God grew the shorter leg out to match the longer one!!!
GLORY TO THE LIVING GOD!!!!
This person is being set free after many many years of torture from evil spirits!
"As far as my mother, God is truly amazing! In just a little over a week, the healing that has taken place is just phenomenal. Her mind has settled. The thoughts that have been haunting her for years have subsided."
"...it was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced, and I felt so light and happy afterwards too, like bags of rocks on my shoulders that weighed 50 pounds each were removed. It was so much easier to tell myself "NO" when ever I had the desire to sin..."
