Faith & Three-fold Cord

As a believer in Christ, I find it to be a wonderful thing to experience the joy of being empowered by the Word of God. Let it be known that the Lord loves His people dearly. He is always loving, providing, protecting, forgiving, and building up those who seek after Him. This week I had the pleasure of hearing an awesome teaching on Faith & Threefold Cord.  The subject of the message came from Ecclesiastes 4:12 and Matthew 6:1-34. Initially, one would think Matthew and Ecclesiastes…huh?
In Ecclesiastes 4:12, the writer states a threefold cord is not quickly or easily broken. If we read in Matthew 6, Jesus teaches about three things we need to do as believers, that makes it possible for the Holy Spirit to strengthen and fortify our spiritual life in Christ.
Today, we are living in the most challenging time as believers. I say that because the deception designed for the church and believers is to make them lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-22). I suggest all believers take heed to the instructions from Jesus and institute the three cords found in Matthew 6.
The three cords taught by Jesus in Matthew 6 are to give, pray, and fast. One of the things that believers need to note is that Jesus said, “when you give, pray, and fast,” and not if you give, pray, and fast.
In reading what Jesus said it is clear that Jesus is teaching with the position that giving, praying, and fasting is expected of believers.
Jesus is instructing those who love Him to use these three cords of giving with a cheerful heart, and fervently and effectually praying, and to faithfully fasting. In doing so, and placing our faith in God we will grow. We will fully believe Jesus when He says, “to take no thought for tomorrow;” Jesus is saying do not worry and do not be afraid. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.  Hard to believe? Not when we faithfully apply the three cords given to us by Jesus.
When we place our faith in God, He will meet every need in our lives as His children and He even promise if we take it a step future and delight ourselves in Him we will also gives us the desires of our hearts.
Have faith in God and use the threefold cords given to us by Jesus and you will be always victorious!
