WALK BY FAITH
Thursday, 4 June 2015
“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 (KJV)
I don’t know how we came about the idea that simply because we are in the will of God challenges will not come. The fact that you are in the will of God does not give you immunity from the challenges of life. The fact that you are in the will of God is the more reason the enemy would come against you. Oftentimes when people are in the will of God, the challenges they face are so big that they will begin to wonder; did God really promise? Did God really speak to me? Could it be my flesh that was speaking? Could it be that God didn’t say anything about my situation? This is the position a lot of people find themselves in.
1 John 4:4 tell us “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”. 1 John 5:4 tells us “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”. As God’s children, we already have the victory. By the reason of your connection to God you are already a victorious person. We are already declared winners because Jesus died for us.
I challenge you now to walk in the victory that Jesus has obtained for you. Believe in what He obtained for you and walk in it. Understand that He paid the full price for your victory and there is nothing the adversary can do about it. That is why Jesus himself said “it is finished”. In other words, everything that is needed to be done for your victory over sickness, disease, poverty, failure and disappointment is fully accomplished and the enemy cannot reverse what has been accomplished concerning you. Rise up now and walk in the reality of the victory that you have. This year you will testify in Jesus name. I bless you in the name of the Lord.
