Ever thought of needing a miraculous breakthrough from your Heavenly Father?
Your breakthrough and answers to your prayers will come by standing firm on Godís unchanging and eternal promises to you in His Word.
What you need to do is to take God by His Word and stand firm on His promises. We therefore need not waver no matter what the circumstances.
The Bible declares that when we have done all to stand Ė keep on standing (Ephesians 6: 13-14). Standing on Godís Word means that we refuse to quit in the face of every situation that comes against us and boldly declare that Godís Word says it, I believe it and that settles it.
You stand to lose when you give the enemy the upper hand by deciding to throw in the towel. But if you refuse to quit and keep on putting your trust in God, you have everything to gain because the promises of God in His Word are yours to claim. Child of God, may I encourage you to take God at His Word because He is faithful and His Word never fails. (Isaiah 55:11; Matthew 24:35).
Perhaps you have been standing against all odds for something and you may be thinking that it is never going to come to pass/happen. But remember that that is a lie from the devil. Maybe you have hindered your answers to your prayer by wavering regarding Godís promise to you.
A simple definition of faith means believing what God said. If God has promised you something in His Word, then I encourage you to keep on believing what God told you and resolve to stand your ground against the enemy, the devil and adverse circumstances. Do not give up and let the devil steal your joy and what God has promised you in His Word.
Circumstances are nothing to God. With Him all things are possible and He makes a way when there seems to be no way. According to Godís Word, every knee must bow to Him, and that includes every contrary circumstances too. But child of God, you must cooperate with God by developing faith in your heart and speaking faith with your mouth.
You do not need to speak negative words that are contrary to what God had promised you. Let your mind stay on Godís promises and in so doing you can without doubt stand firm and strong in the midst of any circumstances, storms that may try to attack and discourage you in your Christian walk.
Now here is the good news. God has not forsaken you. He watches over His Word to perform. He is waiting for you to take Him at His Word. His Word will prosper in any situation: so stand your ground on His promises, donít give up in despair and quit. His Word will prosper and you will see your answer to your prayers.
May the joy of the Lord be your strength.
