*Faith: THE KEY (building faith = seeking YHVH)
(Heb 11:1)Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Example: Atoms: (faith in atoms, evidence of what we don’t see)
Supercollider – atomic particles examined by their trails
*Prayer: answered prayer builds faith
(1Thess 5:17)Pray without ceasing.
*Reading scripture: learn about YHVH / scripture that "jumps out" at us
(2Tim 3:16)All scripture is given by inspiration of YHVH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
*Miraculous: Events of supernatural intervention, safety in dangerous circumstances, perhaps when we should have died etc. These things are evidence of the unseen.
Coincidence, fortunate, lucky… These are terms that discredit YHVH and do not show faith. We should eliminate these from our vocabulary.
(Ps 28:7)YHVH is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise Him.

*Listen: still small voice
(1Kgs 19:12)After the earthquake a fire; but YHVH was not in the fire. After the fire a still small voice.
(Isa 30:21)Your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.
(John 10:27)My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
*Thoughts, Words, Actions: Is YHVH ever present in every thought, word, and action?
(2Cor 10:5)Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Messiah;
(Matt 12:36)But I say to you, That every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
(Matt 16:24)Then Yeshua (Jesus) said to His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
*Service: serving others = serving Yeshua
