1. RECOGNIZE THAT THE SOURCE OF YOUR OPPOSITION IS SATAN AND YOU MUST STAND YOUR GROUND.
The source of everything that comes against your faith is from the devil (it’s not God!). Everyday your faith is being attacked. Satan would want to do anything just to stop you in your faith in God. Recognize it that he is your enemy.
But remember, the One who is in you is greater than all the things around you. Satan can devour people who aren’t walking in faith, but if you resist him, he has to flee (1Pe5)! Don’t yield to temptations. If the devil can stop you now, he will stop you every time. The devil will try to stop you but God will move you forward.
So STAND YOUR GROUND. Whatever you’re going through, be firm. Put on the armor of God. The devil’s afraid of you, so don’t be deceived!
2. FIND THE BIBLE PROMISES FOR YOUR NEED.
God’s word is God’s will.
When we have problems, always remember: THE PROMISES OF GOD STOPS THE PROBLEM. Not our emotions, not what we hear from other sources, but the promises that comes from the Bible. Whatever problem you have, the Bible has an answer to that!
The Bible has A LOT of promises. But usually when we have a problem, we don’t take the time to read the Bible and dig into it.
Word (logos) must not just be read but must become RHEMA, must become flesh, must become real. Have a rhema word and build on it.
1. Take time to find the promises of God.
2. Make a list of all the promises.
3. Study the word and meditate on it!
4. Confess it daily!
5. Hold on firmly to the faith we profess.
3. MAKE SURE THERE IS NO HABITUAL SIN IN YOUR LIFE.
Sin is sin. But there’s a difference between committing a sin and practicing sin.
When we accepted Jesus in our life, the nature of God is in us, we just cannot continually sin, we cannot live in sin.
Sin will steal your authority. Sin is a faith-killer. If you have sin in your life, your faith will not work.
We must always be quick to repent in order to live a sinless life. That way our faith can prosper.
DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR FAITH.
Every time our faith seems weak, we must pray in faith. A lot of people have greater faith in the devil than God when they continually speak of their problems. Instead of speaking of the problem, we must declare God’s Word.
Faith will see you through. Faith is rewarded by God. Without faith it’s impossible to please God.
