Are there disappointments with God or situations? Is there a legitimate cause for these disappointments? How do we end disappointments? How do we get faith? Show Notes: Let's talk about disappointments, and how we can help people get past disappointments by eliminating that deception that is creating them. Many times we are believing something or for something that god has not spoken. Faith comes by hearing and hearing from a Word from God. Faith is a gift; How do we receive this gift? When god speaks a Word that creates faith Faith never dies it is eternal as long as that faith is in your spirit and you are feeding it and caring for it and walking in it. Do not try to do something on a human level. Take the time to write it down, what you believe, go through each point and find out what Word from God gave me that Faith. It has to be an experience where God meets you in the Word. Then take action on that Word.
