No Climbing Necessary

“Everybody has those days.”

“We all go through those seasons.”

“The Christian life isn’t supposed to be easy.”

We hear this all the time from well-meaning people. But have you ever thought that God actually wants you to win in every season of life? To have good days? Do you know what it would take to see victory on the daily?

First John 5:4 says,“This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith” (New International Version).

To live above the trials in this life, all we need is faith. Real faith. Maybe you’ve tried to climb out of a crisis by mustering up all the faith you can feel at the moment. But you were left worn-out and worried that you’ll have to stay hyped up, prepared for the next problem. This isn’t the overcoming faith that this scripture is talking about!

Andrew said it best in his teaching “How to Overcome Doubt”: “But overcoming doubt isn’t just about feeling better; it’s about getting back into faith that only comes from the Word of God (Rom. 10:17).” The true faith that leads us to every success in life is grounded in the Word of God. It’s in what Jesus won for us: peace, limitless faith, victory! And it’s for every single moment of our lives.

Then how do we start to live life in this kind of faith? How can we stop looking to ourselves to make victory happen?

The secret is hearing.

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”

Romans 10:17, English Standard Version

This is the simplicity of our awesome God. When we hear the anointed Word taught, faith begins to build in our hearts effortlessly. And when we keep hearing and hearing—over and over again—our faith flourishes and consumes our thoughts of doubt and defeat. We can then find ourselves filled with faith and on the other side of our mountain, without even doing the
climbing ourselves.

In the same teaching about overcoming doubt, Andrew explains, “You must come to a place to where God’s Word is more real to you than anything you can see, taste, hear, smell, or feel. . . . Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word.”

This is what it means to fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim. 6:12). Fight to stay under the washing of the Word. When the news, the radio, or doubtful people are crowding your airwaves, drown yourself in the teaching of God’s goodness. The hearing of Jesus-centered preaching will pull you out of your situation. Before you know it, failure will not even be an option. You will be walking in ridiculous amounts of favor, and people will wonder why you are always winning!

It is now easier than ever to immerse yourself in the Word and see faith become your victory (1 John 5:4). Now available 24/7, GospelTruth.tv is a convenient way to hear your way out of hardships.

Undeniable

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.

Jeremiah 1:5, New King James Version

Single and twenty-three, I was devastated by news that I was pregnant. Though a “good Christian girl” for most of my life, I became sexually active after finishing college. Then one week my long-term boyfriend, who was away in the military, surprised me with a visit. I was unprepared. With future hopes and dreams shattered by an unwanted pregnancy, my life as I knew it was over. But that wasn’t all I was facing.

In the church I was raised, getting pregnant before marriage was not something a good Christian girl did. The shame and fear that flooded my being threatened to overwhelm me. How would I tell my parents?

Fully aware of the sanctity of life, I knew that abortion was wrong. But as I faced the crippling shame of people discovering what I had done, it seemed like the lesser of two evils. Deliberately turning my back on everything I knew, I made the decision to abort.

Young and naïve, I had no idea how to go about getting an abortion. I turned to the yellow pages of the phone book for answers and saw an entry for a crisis pregnancy clinic. “Crisis” fit my mindset perfectly, so I made the call and scheduled an appointment.

The day arrived, and a friend dropped me off. Bracing myself, I entered the clinic door, unsure of what I would face. A counselor greeted me warmly. After a brief session where I shared that I was looking for abortion information, she escorted me to a small, comfortable room to watch a short film.

The film began, and image after image of a tiny developing baby flashed before my eyes. Face to face with the very truth I had tried to escape, I could no longer deny that there was indeed a tiny life inside me. As I watched, I grew more and more convinced that I couldn’t go through with my decision.

Afterward, my counselor sat with me. The tears flowed freely as I poured out my heart to her, sharing my secret disgrace and fears about the future. She listened quietly, making a comment here or there. I don’t remember exactly what she said, but I do remember one thing: her compassion.

I believe the Lord ordered my steps that day in 1986. When I think back on it, it’s ironic that of all the places I could have gone for abortion information, I ended up in one of the few places that affirms the sanctity of life. The truth and godly compassion I received empowered me to choose life in the face of an uncertain future. And today I have a son who is walking with the Lord and pursuing his God-ordained destiny. I am so thankful.

Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, the number of abortions in the United States alone has reached sixty million—that’s 60,000,000 people—nearly one-fifth of the current U.S. population.

But there is something we can do to help stem the abortion tide. We can pray and vote pro-life. We can also support nationwide Christ-centered organizations like Care Net and Heartbeat International, who are fighting the battle against abortion one child at a time by arming women with truth and life-affirming choices.

For more on the sanctity of life, you can check out Andrew’s teaching Christian Philosophy, or order the Choose Life! Resource Kit.

It’s Festival Day!

In the Old Testament, a feast or a festival was a religious celebration designed for God’s people to remember His great acts of salvation. Throughout the year, God had called His people to gather in His presence and give their time and undivided attention to Him. These were special times of ministry when God ministered to His people and His people ministered to Him.

A hymn in the Psalms celebrates these feasts:

“A song to our strong God! a shout to the God of Jacob! Anthems from the choir, music from the band, sweet sounds from lute and harp, Trumpets and trombones and horns: it’s festival day, a feast to God! A day decreed by God, . . . so we’d never forget what he did in Egypt.”

Psalm 81:1-5, The Message

For believers today, the keeping of feasts and festivals is not a commandment. However, God continues to invite His people to gather for special times of worship and ministry. Investing in our relationship with God should be one of our top priorities for the new year. It blesses the Lord when we sing His praise in the assembly of godly people (Ps. 149:1), and He promises to fill us with joy in His presence (Acts 2:28).

Something Andrew has taught is that regularly meeting together with other believers protects and promotes our spiritual health (see the book The New You & The Holy Spirit). With that in mind, Andrew Wommack Ministries invests numerous resources into providing a variety of events throughout the year. Each event is different, but the goal is the same: to edify the body of Christ through anointed worship and teaching.

The message of the Gospel hasn’t changed, but Andrew’s personal revelation of it continues to grow. And his message is making history within the body of Christ—all over the world. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear him teach live at any one of his Gospel Truth Conferences throughout the year. View his full schedule, find a Gospel Truth Conference near you, and then make plans to attend one in 2018.

In February, a team of executive directors from Andrew Wommack Ministries will travel to Walsall, England, to teach at the Charis Business Summit. Businesspeople and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to learn how to integrate biblical principles with the business world. The Charis Business Summit will also be held in Colorado USA in June. If you are looking to learn godly principles to prosper in business, you don’t want to miss these events. You will be blessed.

In March, The Sanctuary in Woodland Park, Colorado, will open its doors for a men’s only event. Men’s Advance 2018 will include amazing guests, such as former NFL coach and current sportscaster Tony Dungy, and James Brown, host of CBS’s The NFL Today. Their testimonies and examples of faith will encourage and prepare men to run the spiritual race that lies ahead of them.

Later that month, the stage lights will be turned on to present God with Us. This biblical musical recounts various stories of the Bible through the eyes of the Apostle Peter, following the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a great way to celebrate Easter with family and friends.

The summer conferences continue to grow in popularity, and they present a great opportunity to visit the new Charis Bible College campus. For many families, the Summer Family Bible Conference has become a tradition because it offers the best of both worlds: ministry time and summer fun! And the Healing Is Here Conference presents a great opportunity to help you be proactive about your health. Don’t wait to be sick! The Word of God will promote your physical health and give you peace (Jer. 33:6).

And as the leaves start changing colors, Charis prepares for the Ministers’ Conference and the Women Arise Conference. The Ministers’ Conference is a great place for renewal and refreshing for those who are in full-time or part-time ministry. The Women Arise Conference presents great speakers that will minister God’s wisdom and encouragement to help women succeed at home, in the church, and in the workplace.

This is just a small list of the various events Andrew Wommack Ministries is hosting this year. I encourage you to bookmark our events page and keep an eye on those you’re interested in. A great time of ministry awaits you at every one. Make plans to attend, and bless us with your presence as we celebrate a feast to our God!
