Trials That Build Faith

  1. Because Moses brought water from a rock
  2. Because they had to walk through the desert
  3. Because they were afraid of the giants
  4. Because God fought their battle for them

D.  Because God fought their battle for them

Exodus 14:13-16,26-30

When the Israelites fled from Egypt, God parted the Red Sea and they walked across on dry land.  They didn’t have to get their feet wet.   They didn’t have to fight.   God fought the battle for them and killed the Egyptian army that was chasing them.   Dry Feet Faith is when God clearly tells you what He is going to do before you begin to walk your journey.  You have assurance from God before beginning.

Wet Feet Faith

4. Which bible story exemplified “Wet Feet Faith”?
  1. Peter walking on the water
  2. Joshua crossing the Jordan river
  3. Jesus walking on the water
  4. Moses bringing water from the rock

Joshua 3:1-17

When Joshua got to the Jordan river he told the the Israelites to cross with the priests in the front carrying the ark.  Joshua told them the plan and he trusted God before God told him what His plan was.   The priests had to step into the water before the Jordan river split.   They had to get their “feet wet”.   Wet feet faith is when you have to take action before clearly hearing from God knowing that He will not let you fail.

B. Joshua crossing the Jordan river

Wet Feet Faith

  1. Cold feet faith
  2. Stormy faith
  3. Fair weather faith
  4. Wet toe faith

Matthew 14:26-33

Peter had faith, but he lost it when he started focusing on the wind.  We have cold feet faith when we take our eyes off of Jesus and starting focusing on our circumstances.

A. Cold feet faith

Wet Feet Faith

6. Fireproof faith was also defined as what?
  1. Courage
  2. Shadrack Faith
  3. Sustaining Faith
  4. Delivering Faith

C. Sustaining Faith

Fireproof faith states that: “Sometimes God rescues you from the fire; sometimes He makes you fireproof.”.   When God doesn’t resolve your issue immediately or deliver you from your trial He may give you the strength to endure your trial.  This is called Fireproof faith because God allows you to go through the fire without getting burned.

Fireproof Faith

7.  Why was the phrase “But even if he does not” import when the 3 Hebrew boys spoke it?
  1. Because it show that they knew for certain that God was going to save them.
  2. Because it showed that they didn’t know for certain that God was going to save them.
  3. Because it made Nebuchadnezzar throw them in the fire.
  4. This sentence was likely added by the translators and not part of the original text.

Daniel 3:17-18
17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver usc from Your Majesty’s hand. 18But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

B. Because it showed that they didn’t know for certain that God was going to save them.

Fireproof faith doesn’t mean that you believe that God has to do whatever you ask Him to do.   Fireproof faith doesn’t believe that the power to achieve whatever you want is in you.  Fireproof faith believes that God can do anything, but doesn’t assume that He has to do it just because you have faith.  Fireproof faith doesn’t override God’s free will, or give you the ability to manipulate God.   Fireproof Faith doesn’t mean that unpleasant things will never happen to us.  Fireproof Faith is when you can say Lord if you don't do anything else for me I will still do your bidding regardless of what I get in return.  It’s not about me.

Fireproof Faith

  1. God got glory from it.
  2. Nebuchadnezzar  prayed that they would not be harmed
  3. The guard who threw them in the fire was killed in their place
  4. It wasn’t hot enough to kill anyone

Daniel 3:19-30

  1. God got glory from it.

As a result of them being saved from the fire:
  • The satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers gained faith in God
  • King Nebuchadnezzar now believed in God
  • Nebuchadnezzar decreed that anyone in the kingdom who spoke against God would be cut into pieces

Fireproof Faith

9. Was Abraham really going to sacrifice Isaac?

  2. No, because he knew God promised Isaac would have many offspring
  3. Yes, because sacrificing children was common in those days
  4. Yes, because he believed that God would raise him from the dead

Hebrews 11:17-19
17By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”c 19Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.

D.  Yes, he had believed that God would raise him from the dead
