You may have done well yesterday, but wait until you experience today’s issues. Yesterday’s faith is no match for the issues that you are going to face today. Faith is like fuel, it is used up while it works, and must be replaced daily. You must continually move from yesterday’s faith to today’s faith. Romans 1:17 Faith does not come from working long hours, or watching TV, or even going to church. “Faith comes by hearing and obeying My voice” Romans 10:17. If your spiritual walk is like a roll-a-coaster or a yo-yo, it’s because your faith is not being replenished on a daily basis. Last weeks faith worked miracles for you, but it was used up on last weeks problems, problems that needed a miracle to overcome, it’s gone forever!
It does not matter if you have been saved over 60 years, today will destroy you, if your faith has run out! “The word will never profit you, if it is not being mixed with today’s faith inside you, when you hear it” Hebrews 4:2. You cannot wait until you are in trouble, and then try to fill up your faith tank? Even now, many of you know your running on empty, and the fear of being stranded by the roadside of life, has stolen your joy. You are fearing what is about to happen to your country, you are fearing the crash of the dollar, you are fearing being homeless, generational sickness, being broke and yes even death itself. You spend less than an hour a day with Me, and even then you do most of the talking, so you are out of faith by the noon hour! Then you begin to pass your fears on to your family and friends, causing them to withdraw from you!
Big trouble is coming, such as the world has never seen, the only survivors will be those who are rich in faith! If you are depressed when there is no money, you do not understand that; “I have chosen the poor of this world, who are surviving because they are rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which I have promised to all who truly that love Me.  But many American believers are despising the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats to take every last dollar from you?” James 2:5-6.
I cannot stress it enough, the days are upon you, that will demand you to be rich in faith, in order to survive. Wake up and face the conditions you and your nation are in. One morning you will wake up and all you will have left is your faith! Do you have a full tank for today? Do not think you can wait until it happens. You will not be able to fill up then, because your fear will have cut off all access to the faith supply. “When a strong man armed with faith, regularly keeps his palace, his goods are in peace:  But when fear is stronger than his faith, the enemy shall come upon him, and overcome him, and take all his material armor that he trusted in, and divide his spoils with the rich and the government” Luke 11:21-22.
When the dollar and the nation collapses, Fear none of those things which you will suffer: the devil shall cast some of you into prison, and you will be tried; and you shall have tribulation: but be full of faith to your death, and I will give you a crown of life Revelation 2:10.
