Verse Of The Day : But since we have the same spirit of faith as that shown in what has been written, “I believed; therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak. 2 Corinthians 4:13
Thought of The Day : Faith speaks possibilities; for nothing is possible with you until you believe and confess it.
LISTEN : Speaking and acting in agreement with the word of God makes all things possible. As a matter of fact, nothing overcomes the power of faith. Life is a battle field and everyone wants to win. Thankfully, God wants to give us victory, but it has to come through our faith in Him (Hebrews 11:6). Imagine yourself winning a sole prize in a competition where a lot of contestants participated, how will you feel? Hope, you will feel good, right? My dear, do you want to obtain victory? Then, grow your desire for it. It is difficult to become what you don’t have hunger for. Victory doesn’t come by chance, it comes by choice and a quality decision to succeed. True victory is a product of faith through God. The Bible says,
“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world:
and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.“
Our faith works the wonder! When your faith grows, your capacity to overcome battles also increases. Beloved, your faith should grow to obtain victory. What is victory? It is the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist : achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties. In life we have battles to fight; and as Christians, we have major battles to fight. The Bible says,
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
However, there is no excuse for defeat. We have no choice but to win, because we have God’s armour for every battle (see Ephesians 6:13-18). Beloved, put on the armour of God and your victory is sure. Always learn to speak and act in agreement with God’s word. Our anchor Bible verse says,
“But since we have the same spirit of faith as that shown in what has been written,
‘I believed; therefore I spoke,’ we also believe, therefore we also speak.“
2 Corinthians 4:13
When you speak and act in faith, God will surely make all things possible for you. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Determine to be victorious in your faith in God.
2. Don’t accept defeat, keep fighting the fight of faith until you win.
3. Grow your faith through the word of God and increase in the knowledge of Christ.
4. Learn to issue commands against Satan and his agents by faith and exercise your authority in Christ Jesus.
Prayer : Eternal God, You’re mighty in battle. Prepare me for battles of life and grant me to speak and act in agreement with your words, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : You’re blessed! Henceforth, recover all you have lost to the enemy and soar with the eagles through Christ Jesus, amen.
Reflection : He who is not driven by victory and success will always be greeted with defeat and failure.
Quote : “Believe, act and confess what you want to see happen in your life, else, Satan would give you ‘one.'”
