Faith Within the Storm

1 John 5:4 (KJV) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Let's face it, life isn't always fair. Even amid total surrender, studying God's Word and spending time passionately seeking Him... trials still are a part of our reality. We don't always understand the battle but there are some keys to not being destroyed by it. 

When I'm surrounded by a relentless attack, it always comes down to what I'm focused on. I get it! A negative health report, rejection, abandonment, loss, misunderstandings, worry, pain, and financial difficulties all have the potential to steal our attention away from our first love. What we do in these seasons is crucial to our future success. These attacks often come just when we get to new crossroads of spiritual growth and effectiveness. The enemy sees your potential, so pressure is applied to deter you away from your progress. Ha! God is also present to use that very pressure to produce maturity and growth! Will you be destroyed by it or flourish in the midst of it? 

You must persevere and press forward with tenacity! Set your mind on God and His promises concerning your situation. If you're just too sick, weak and tired, ask your brothers and sisters to agree with you in prayer. It's a battle and as such it must be fought in the spiritual realm. Declare God's Word! Take authority over the enemy and decree the desired results! That's what faith is, believing and confessing it when it's nowhere to be seen or felt! It's total agreement in the promises God made concerning you and accepting all that was paid for on the cross! 

You are strong and victorious! More than a conqueror. Not because you "feel" like it at this moment but because your Father says you are! Trust Him, worship and stay focused on Him... NOT the circumstances! It will change the outcome and bring you peace while you wait for the manifestation of your deliverance! HALLELUJAH!! Yes...I'm preaching to me today!

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

1 John 1:9 (KJV) Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Colossians 3:2 (NKJV) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

Like 10:19 (KJV) Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Romans 8:35-37 (TPT) Who could ever divorce us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love, even though it is written: All day long we face death threats for your sake, God. We are considered to be nothing more than sheep to be slaughtered! Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!
