OPENING PRAYER: Father, thank You for the gift of faith and hearing ability, equip us to grow in faith and make our faith count in the journey of life.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leader should ask members if they could identify in their lives some of the signs of leaving their first love learned last week and what intentional effort they have made to return to their first love.

MEMORY VERSE: “So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” Romans 10:17

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 17:27
[27]Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: When we talk about faith, we talk of believing God, shunning all manner of impossibility, distractions that can hinder the fulfilment of your belief in God’s acts. There are many ways faith can be enhanced such as through testimonies of others, ceaseless prayers, being surrounded by people full of passion for God and His works, remembering past interventions from God, holding unto God’s promises and studying biblical characters who won the battles of life.

LESSON AIM: To reveal to everyone that faith comes through hearing God’s word, testimonies of others and keeping off distractions.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to know:
– how to develop their word capacity and grow their faith level.
– know the reasons why they have to avoid distractions.

TEXT REVIEW: Matthew 17:27
a. Faith in God makes the impossible possible.
b. It silences enemy’s plans and devices.
C. Faith in God delivers one from shame.
d. It secures your provision during scarcity.

LESSON OUTLINE ONE
BE WORD POSSESSED
To be word possessed means to be word driven, activating declaration of biblical promises detailed in the scripture – Joshua 1:8 Why do you need to be word possessed? This is because the Word of God;
i. terminates darkness (pains, sorrow), gives light (satisfaction) – Ps. 119:130.
ii. ends anxiety and terminates fruitless efforts – Luke 5:4-6.
iii. draws God’s favour to one’s side-Acts 27:22-23
iv. brings fulfilment of dreams and visions – Rev. 5:10; Luke 1:37, 59 & 63.
v. secures your tomorrow from being hijacked.
vi. keeps one from being obsessed with the issues of life.

LESSON OUTLINE TWO
AVOID DISTRACTIONS
Distraction means anything that prevents the realisation of dreams and aspiration, initiates unproductive and meaningless agitations of the mind. What can cause distractions?
1. Unanswered prayers – Luke 1:13-18.
2. Previous setbacks-Luke 5:5.
3. Unfulfilling family history – Luke 1:61.
4. Ceaseless temptations – Luke 4:1-2.
5. Unmet needs- I Kings 17:12.
6. Uncelebrated achievements. When one’s success does not receive desired recognition – I Kings 19:1-4.

ACTIVITY: Discuss about biblical characters who were distracted on their journey to the top.

SUMMARY: When faith is enhanced through hearing, your gains will ensue without flexing (without trouble or difficulties).

CONCLUSION: Have you suffered setbacks or delay before and it seems your dreams may not be achieved or attained, plug in your faith and your testimonies will be heard in Jesus name.
