The just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). We need faith to live in this present world system. This is because by faith we receive the strength not to accept the crumbs of life that the world wants to dish to us. When we eat the living bread of life we refuse to eat the bread of sorrow. The bread of life strenghthens our soul not to give up in the face of struggles and contention.
To live by faith is to refuse to live in bondage, slavery, servitude, sorrow, deppression, constraints and rejection of any negative labels and stigmas imposed by others. If the son makes you free, ye are free indeed (John 8:36). CONVICTION is in the power of the Almighty God!
Your current situation might be challenging and you may feel everything is against you. I want to assure you that you are not alone. There are many of people in this situation and it is a process of life we go through. We may feel lost and abandoned and can’t find a way through; all hope may seem to be gone… This however is when we need faith to live, to have confidence in His word that He will make way for us.
In the book of Joshua, a young general was to lead the children of Israel into the promised land with an army that were born in the wilderness and had not been properly trained or proven. Their fathers died in the wilderness for lack of faith, and so the only homeland they knew was the wilderness. They finally found themselves at the edge of Jericho which was straitly fenced and closed. In the natural there was no way in and there was no hope – but God was with them even in a hopeless situation.
Joshua looked unto God for a supernatural intervention and God showed up. His word gave revelations of how to bring down the walls of Jericho. The mighty walls came down before them and not one stone was left standing. At last they entered into the promised land. I prophesy that this month of February the lord will arise for you and you will BREAK FORTH to enter into your promise land.
God said this year He will remember the just and visit them in their present situation and in it He will bless them as He blessed the widow of Zarephath even in the midst of the famine.
The Almighty God says He will bring us out of our wilderness and make us to enter into our promise land. He will put to shame the powers that wants to enslave our souls.
Always remember that your life is meant to give glory to God when you belong to His kingdom and therefore God cannot standby for you to be defeated but you must decide every single day of your life to walk or rather live by faith and not by sight because the God that is in you is greater than the god that is ruling the system of this world, which wants to enslave all those who walk by its ways.
To be carnally minded is death but to be spiritually minded is peace and life, therefore you must not limit the power of God by doubting His word… (“Whosoever shall say to this mountain… But does not doubt in his heart!” – Mark 11:23).
He is still a God of miracles! He loves to show Himself strong on behalf of the people who seek after His kingdom and righteousness. I encourage you today, no matter what you are facing, cry out to the Lord. Believe that He will make a way when there seems to be no way. Keep standing, keep believing because God will move you through that difficult situation so you can take hold of your promised land.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14, NKJV)
Have a Wonderful Month of February!
