The Spirit of The Lord said to me first and then He said tell the people, DON’T BE A COWARD!!
Too often we surrender to the tactics of Satan, and give up when trouble comes or situations arise that are at a high degree of warfare. We will lose our desire to fight for what we know is the will of God, because of the pressure that is many times connected to the promise.
When the challenges that come to cause us to lose our willingness to fight, that is when the Spirit of The Lord comes in to lift up a standard to strengthen us, and also to remind us that we are not alone or powerless against our adversity.
The ability to remain steadfast in the promise of God will only happen if you have develop a strong personal relationship with God. It’s in that relationship of knowing who God is that gives us the desire and passion to maintain our position of faith and trust even when the warfare tries to overtake us.
Knowing God’s character helps us to know that He will never leave us in a situation that makes us breakable to the enemy. It is the knowledge of His word that causes our faith to increase in strength when we face those areas of warfare that wants to weaken and destroy us.
Knowing that I can do nothing of myself, I dare not go through any trial without the wisdom of God’s word and the strength of His Spirit. Leaning on Him, to bear me up when things get overpowering, is an instant reaction when you know that He is always there no matter how the circumstances look.
Those things that God has spoken concerning your life are true, no matter what happens, what warfare comes against, or what problems attach to it. I know sometimes people get upset with me because I never change the will of God, I never agree against what God has spoken, just because they are going through.
The Word of God is true and truth and does not change because you are having problems in the promise. We as a people, need to put on the full armor of God stand on the word and fight for the promise of what God says.
If he say your spouse is going to get delivered, believe it. If He said your children will be saved, your marriage will be restored, your ministry will advanced, your finances will be increased, your body will be healed, then it is what He has spoken.
Just because problems arise or situations come against it or circumstances look crazy, don’t mean His word changes be it Logos or Rhema. He changes not.
We change, and make decisions that take us out the will of God, but the word He spoke is yet true!
God spoke those words to me today to remind me that I can’t allow extreme pressure to cause me to change what He has purposed for this season, just because something comes up. The will of God attracts attacks and we just need to know it and go through whatever process pain or difficulties are attached to it.
Staying prayerful and watchful and keeping the flesh under subjection is critical if you are going to maintain your position of faith in this hour! Going into greater in this season and won’t be backing down from nothing!
