From the Desk of Pastor D. Tyler Grimes:
Faith is like a house: it must be built on a strong foundation if it’s going to stand the test and trials of time. Faith’s foundation is the word of God and the “Love of God”. In Galatians 5:6–Faith worketh by love. You can’t build great faith without it. Faith is not one’s religion or denomination, it is a spiritual force that works by love and this truth has a success rate of 100%. It never fails! My wife and I have built our lives and the lifestyle of our church on this definition of faith which is faith is a practical expression of one’s confidence in God and His word. We adopted this definition from Hebrews 11:1 (Amplified Version), which describes faith as the title deed of the things (we) hope for; being the proof of things (we) do not see. Example: Since I have the deed to my automobile, no one can call me or come by and hook my car up and take it to the impound. I can sleep peacefully because I have the title deed. Faith gives you and I all the assurance we will ever need to take what’s ours according to the Word of God.
You must build your title deed on your confidence in God and this work as your title deed to the things in the world. When your life is built on faith the storms will come, life type hurricanes will hit your house, the devil will attack your body or a loved one. He will attack your employment status, he will throw everything including the bathroom mirror at your 20 year marriage. He will even try to destroy your relationship with your children, especially your teenagers. He wants to steal your peace of mind. Don’t allow him into your thinking space. In Luke 6:48 (Amplified Version) “He is like a man which built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock(the word of God) and when a flood arose the stream beat vehemently upon that house and could not shake it for it was founded upon a rock.” You see people of God, or for the one who may desire to accept God as your personal Savior and partner, it’s an absolute necessity that we know God and have confidence in him and his promise (word) so that we can build our house of faith because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
In Romans 10:14 “How then should they call on him whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” Here at Double Portion Spirit Ministries International, my wife and I excitedly and expectantly await your arrival. God has called us to Prince William County for such a time as this to be about the Father’s business. We’re on a mission along with this body of believers to help you become a rising star disciple who will go into the world teaching the Word as well as demonstrating the Word which will call others to take hold of the advantage and benefits of being a fellow citizen of the kingdom of God. Boldly and confidently confessing “God is love and as Jesus is so are we in this world.” We look forward to seeing you and the family real soon! Make sure you come and be a part of the most exciting and empowering worship experience you have ever encountered!
