Life is full of challenging and discouraging things that threatened and eventually defeated the so called giants of the past who were depending on their own abilities for their successes and daily lives but here is the answer for all their failures “Forgetting the giant of giant- Faith in God.’’
Faith has big muscles and hairs on its chest when it speaks everything will be silenced. Through faith the elders obtained a good report, subdued kingdoms, obtained the promise, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weaknesses were made strong, became valiant in fight and women received their dead raised to life again.( Hebrew 11: 33) We can’t exhaust what faith can do when a believer takes God at his word.
One might need to know what really this faith is and how to possess it. Heb 11:1 says now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. From this definition we see that faith is the substance of our hope or the evidence of the unseen. The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 10: 17 that faith comes by hearing, hearing the word of God . It is now clear that faith is based on the word of God and it cannot respect the bad situation around. They that observe the lying vanities forsake their own mercies (Jonah 2:8).
Sometimes when you wonder why you can’t hear God’s voice during your trials. Just proudly remember that the teacher is always quite during the test. The only way to learn strong faith is to endure great and fearful trials. Just know that only Jesus can turn your test into your testimony and our mess into a message. Faith is like a switch, it allows the Power of God to move into your situation.
Faith is a master of all circumstances and it knows no defeat. Real faith always see victory even if the situation seems wrong. Great faith is a product of great fights and great testimonies are the outcomes of great tests. There is no fear in faith. It is the ability to see the light with the heart when all your eyes see darkness. It is a creative power, super sense, hand to receive, key to unlock and unstoppable strongest force. When that woman with blood issue moved her faith, it took all the strength or virtue of Emmanuel (God with us) simply because it is unstoppable.
Unfortunately, the greatest hindrance to many Christians is that they try to answer the how question which is not their duty. It’s all about believing, you don’t know how it will happen but you know it will surely happen. Just know that God is working things out for you even if you don’t feel or see it. It may look like your situation will never change but in a split of a second God shall completely resolve it just trust God and keep your expectation. God makes a way where there seems to be no ways, he works in supernatural ways.
Another crucial concept of our faith is confession. Jesus Christ is the high priest of our confession (Heb 3:1). You have to speak to your mountain not to speak about your mountain. Tell your problem how big your God is and at the appointed time it will automatically vanish. Having the same spirit of faith, as it is written I believed therefore have I spoken, we have to believe and speak also ( 2 Cor 4: 13). Those who thank God in their trials turn their burdens into blessings. ‘’ A spiritual law that few recognizes is that our confession rules us. It is what we confess with our lips that really dominates our inner being and your successes and usefulness is measured by your confession’’ F.F. Bosworth. You can change your destiny for the better just practice these ABCs – Accept it, Believe it and Confess it.
My brothers and sisters, I believe from now you have acquired unstoppable faith. You are now more dangerous to your dangers just only believe all things are possible. Is there anything too hard for the Lord ? With all the abundance of testimonies we have or heard it is worth for us to say ‘Enough is enough it’s due time now for us to take what belongs to us.
GOD SAID SO. I BELIEVE IT. THAT SETTLES IT !!!
