Anybody can praise God whenever things are going great. What about when your children are ill, you lose your job, divorce, death in the family, and the list goes on. What do you do then?
I have had many circumstances over the years come against me and my family. I had a choice to make to either duck tail and run or go right through the middle of it. To tell you the truth at times I would love to have run, but God on the inside of me just would not let me do that.
He’s always been bigger than anything I have ever faced. At times I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me, and then I would remember that He was right there with me, seeing me overcome every obstacle that came my way.
I’m so glad that I have learned how to believe God for myself.
Confess His word and watch it come to pass. Mark 11:24 says, “Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them.” The devil is just the devil; he will always put up a fight to keep you from the things of God. Don’t listen to his lies. If the Bible promises you something, you have a right to fight for it. God has given us every tool we need to win.
The sword of the spirit which is the Word of God is one of our greatest weapons against the devil. Jesus always used it when He was tempted of the devil. Now, it is our turn to do the same thing. The next time the devil comes telling you anything contrary to the Bible, and trying to beat you up, use the Word.
Just like David said to the uncircumcised Philistine, You come to me with a sword, and a spear, but I come at you in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied. ~1 Samuel 17:45
