“STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF GOD…”
…ASSURES US VICTORY BY FAITH THROUGH CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.
Why do many Believers around the globe suffer shipwreck faith? Is it that we find ourselves weaker than the enemy? Perhaps we compromise too much with sin or just flat out get tired of feeling like things remain the same and can only see very little progress in our walk of faith? Or…it’s God’s will for us to continue to go through such suffering because it helps our growth? God forbid! Yes…our faith go through trials to prove itself genuine and yes…the enemy does tempt us with and by things of the world that leads to our struggle against flesh and spirit, however, our Lord stated in John 10:10; “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I’m sure the enemy would LOVE to take credit for such a failure in our lack of faith, but the problem most recently discovered is our lack to stand on and claim the promises of God in our lives by faith that puts God into action on behalf of His children. When was the last time you reviewed the promises of God spoken for Believers? I’m guilty…its been a while and for that reason of not speaking those promises, claiming those promises, and walking in faith because of those promises have too suffered shipwreck faith. Brothers and sisters we never intend to fail in this fight and walk of faith, but at times we tend to forget this was the problem of the Exodus generation in which they failed to walk by faith in the promises of God, thus “missing the mark” and “falling short” thereof of entering into God’s rest. This is where our flesh moves over and God the Holy Spirit takes control…this is living and walking by faith…it is God’s grace. Amen. The work of our Lord is complete, and we are made complete in Him, therefore we need only move “self” the flesh out of the way and permit the work of the Holy Spirit through us. God knows EVERYTHING we fight with, EVERYTHING that we are going through, EVERY struggle, EVERY temptation,EVERY painful situation and tears…He knows it all and as long as we stand in the way, because our God is a gentleman, He will let us try to work it out for ourselves as long as we stand in His way to work until we’re tired and suffered enough to say; “Ok, Father…I surrender this to you.” And then we begin by faith to see the miracles of the hand of God in our lives and watch EVERYTHING become new and transformed by the power of our God. Amen. Then we will see our joy complete in Christ Jesus our Lord and rise above these circumstances of the world and be about our Father’s business and press forward in the faith that we had when we first believed with a renewed faith, hope and love that wages war against the enemies of the living God as David did and claim victory in Jesus name, because the battle is the Lord’s and there is NO WEAPONS formed that shall prosper against the children of the most high God, because we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus our Lord!! Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and of good courage. Fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee: He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Isaiah 41:10, “Fear thou not, for I am with thee: be not dismayed: for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea. I will help thee; yea. I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteouness.” Therefore let us press forward without fear, for fear is a sin and DOES NOT claim the promises of God and may the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over you and protect you and bless you in all that you do and touch from this day forward as we claim those spoken promises of God in our lives by faith through Christ Jesus our Lord. God bless.
