Welcome to our Book Club. So glad to have you join us. 

We continue reading our Sixth Featured Book, "The Good Life," by Robert Waldinger and Marc Schulz. This is our fifth reading into Chapter Seven: "The Person Beside You." It appears we are going to dwell here for a while. It keeps expanding, the more I read it.

Get yourself a seat, tighten your belt, and let us take flight.

What is Faith? | Part Ten.


The Man Daniel: A Study of the Book of Daniel.

Theme: How to Overcome in the Last of the Last Days.

Topic: What is Faith? | Part Ten.

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1, NKJV: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Keynote #40: Trust God through the "WAITING SPELL." (1 Samuel 13:8-14)

Matthew 6:28-30, NKJV. Do Not Worry:
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 
29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 
30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Keynote #41: God is in the quietness of faith, not the worry, the noise, the earthquake, and the fire. We need to each find our rest in the quietness of faith. Our power is not in ourselves. It is in God. (1 Kings 19:11-13; Psalm 46:10-11) 

Keynote #42: Worry is a result of a lack of faith. It results from an inability to think, reason, and remember. (Matthew 6:30)

Keynote #43: If you cannot think. You cannot have faith. Faith requires knowledge. It requires a basis. (Matthew 6:30)

Scriptures: Daniel 1:10-13; Matthew 6:28-30.

What is Faith? | Part Nine.


The Man Daniel: A Study of the Book of Daniel.

Theme: How to Overcome in the Last of the Last Days.

Topic: What is Faith? | Part Nine.

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1, NKJV: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Keynote #36: We are not here to be separated from the world. We are here to overcome the world. We are here to witness the person, the presence, and the power of Jesus Christ. We do this by embodying him in everything that we do, every day. (John 17:15; 1 Peter 3:15)

"Confidence isn’t a trait you’re born with. Just like the muscles in your body, it’s something we build and get better at every day with continuous practice." — Tess Brigham.

"Confidence comes from believing in yourself, your own abilities, and where you are in your personal journey." — Tess Brigham.

Scripture: Matthew 6:26, NKJV. Do Not Worry:
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Keynote #37: All truths are parallel. If you can find a truth in one realm, you can apply it in every other realm. (Isaiah 28:16; John 14:6)

Keynote #38: Worrying is instinctive. We think by worrying we can change the past or the future. We are emotional, and hence are more prone to doing things that appeal to our feelings. Feeling like a thing does not make it right, or the will of God. We need to judge all spirits and emotions. (Matthew 6:27)

Keynote #39: Worrying leads to compromise. (Matthew 6:27)

Scriptures: Daniel 1:10-13; Matthew 6:26-27.

Topic: What is Faith? | Part Eight.

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1, NKJV.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Topic: What is Faith? | Part Seven.

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1, NKJV.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Keynote #28: Worry will always knock on our door. It is part of the normal stream of life. We need to answer it with faith, not fear.

Keynote #29: Strong Faith is not that which suddenly comes on us. It is built by practice and exercise. (Hebrews 5:12-14; 1 Timothy 4:8-10; Matthew 6:33)

Keynote #30: Fasting, biblically speaking, is an act of self-humbling. Fasting is a way of bringing our physical being under control. It is a kind of circumcision whereby we cut off the excesses in our life (1 Kings 21:29; Psalm 69:10; Psalm 35:13; Ezra 8:21; Isaiah 58:3-5; Matthew 6:16-18)

“Every one of us needs half an hour of prayer a day, except when we are busy – then we need an hour." ― St. Francis de Sales.

"I am so busy now that if I did not spend three hours each day in prayer, I could not get through the day." ― Martin Luther.

Keynote #31: Faith is running to God to be covered by Him. It is trusting God in all things. (Proverbs 18:10; Isaiah 28:16)

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Keynote #24: Jesus is the foundation of our faith. (Isaiah 28:16; Hebrews 12:2)

Scripture: Matthew 6:25, NKJV. Do Not Worry:

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

Scriptures: Daniel 1:10-13; Matthew 6:25.
