F.O.C.U.S. Focus On Creating Ur Success -Through Faith- Part II


By Jeaninne Belton Williams
I want to start off by saying that, “faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by  the word of God (Romans 10:17KJV) ; and now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1KJV).” “For we know that God works all things for good, for those who love him and called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28 NIV).” How do you put these scriptures into action and help you focus on creating your success through faith? But more importantly, bring honor and glory to God.  What are you hoping for today?  What are you seeking God for at this very moment?  It takes trust and complete faith that God will bring every one of your dreams and desires into fruition.
