“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Psalm 30: 5
“Fight the good fight of faith…”
1 Timothy 6: 12.
Faith in God always win in life’s battles, because, Jesus who is the author & finisher of our faith never fails.
Weeping endures for a night but bless God morning always comes. And for those who don’t give up on their faith life, victory & breakthrough is guaranteed. But I’d like you to never forget certain key facts in the fight of faith.
Faith is a fight! This is because the devil will always throw things at you to rob you of your expected blessings. Once you sign up for the faith life the devil & his demons will show up to oppose you every inch of the way. Talking about the devil’s opposition to your faith life, three things will always stand in your way & you must learn how to deal with these three things over & over again. These three things are circumstances, people & Satan!
Circumstances, people & Satan himself will always be the sources of every opposition to your faith walk. Once you set out to believing God for breakthroughs, you will face challenges in these three areas, circumstances, people & Satan.
Faith is a spiritual force that has the capacity to change everything on earth, but it is a spiritual force. Faith thrives & deals with unseen realities & brings them to the physical world we are used to. This is the reason you will come across passages such as these.
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
2 Corinthians 5: 7
We walk by faith not by sight, in other words, faith deals with unseen realities. It’s a reality yet not seen by the physical senses.
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
2.Corinthians 4: 18
“…things which are not seen..”There are things, realities that are not seen or captured by our physical eyes or senses, but they are real all the same, they exist.
Faith is of the spirit, it’s a spiritual force that creates everything in this known world.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
“;…the evidence of things not seen”. So, you see, since faith is a spiritual force that operates or super cedes the physical. For this reason, when you operate in faith the devil will use things in the physical, things that has to do with your senses to fight your faith & they will always be things that has to do with your circumstances, people & the devil himself.
Faith is no for the lazy, in fact, spiritual things are not for lazy people. Lazy people never make it in their spiritual walk.
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
Hebrew 6: 12
We see clearly here the Bible kicks against slothfulness, this is laziness. Just as people can be lazy in the things of life, so they can be lazy in spiritual matters as well. If you are slothful, you cannot survive in the faith walk.
Another thing you must never forget as you trust God is that, it takes patience to trust God & it takes patience to walk with God. Without patience, the faith walk is impossible. You never trust God in a rush. Patience is one price you must pay to walk with God & it is never pain all at once, you pay it in installments over & over again.
When you have learned to be calm in your heart & mind as you trust God, breakthroughs comes easy!
Be still, and know that I am God
Psalms 46: 10
God bless you!
1. Lord, I break every evil force of delay from my life today in Jesus name.
2. Lord, deliver me from the evil forces of disappointment in Jesus name.
3. I declare that none of my breakthroughs shall pass me by in Jesus name.
