FB Friends and Family,

Why not believe God for 10 miracles in your life this year? You might be thinking, “Pastor Brian, that sounds crazy!” Does it? Or does it sound more like FAITH? Sometimes or shall I say frequently we limit the LIMITLESS God from doing in our lives what he WANTS to do. In 2010 lets LIVE BY FAITH.

In God’s economy, 10 is the perfect number. It’s the number of completion! There are the 10 Commandments, the 10 “I Am” statements of Jesus in Johns gospel. Oh, here is another just in case any have forgotten, the tithe that is what?...that’s right 10%. Here are 10 areas in your life where you can exercise and stretch your faith. By the way, these 10 areas are in the Bible, Gods word! So we can expect, that’s right expect to receive miracles in these areas because they are PROMISES from God! So here they are:

1. SALVATION of LOST LOVED ONES

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

2. PHYSICAL HEALING

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

3. BLESSINGS in YOUR CAREER

Psalm 1:1-3 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4. WISDOM in ALL THINGS

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

5. PEACE and SECURITY

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

6. FINANIAL PROSPERITY

Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

7. FAITH INCREASED for MIRACLES

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

8. RELATIONSHIPS RENEWED

1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

9. CLOSER WALK with the LORD

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

10. INCREASED POWER of INFLUENCE

Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them.

WHATEVER the need is that you have in your life, I am agreeing and believing with you for God to give you that MIRACLE this year! Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

It is time that you STAND on the PROMISES of God. Yes, they are for YOU!  God is no respecter of persons and his word will not return unto him empty or unaccomplished, but it will do that which he sent for it to do. That’s GOOD NEWS for you. So, today begin LIVING by faith, DECLARE the Word of the Lord over you needs, and TRUST in the power of God’s promises.

God bless,
Brian Barrett
