RELENTLESS (2)

“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it”.

1 Corinthians 9:24

The Believer is a child of God! This is important, as it informs us where the believer takes his cue from. Your God is not Lily-livered! You are His child. This is your nature too! This is different from being meek.

 We must be Relentless with our stance on God’s word, we don’t back down because the situation looks like it’s not changing, hold fast to your confession and stop trying to come up with an excuse you can tell people if it’s doesn’t happen as you have confessed. 

Someone is confessing that he is healed of God, but because he still feels the symptoms, he begins to say, “you know, everyone falls sick!” Your confession is beginning to conform to the situation and not what you want to see, and that’s dangerous. The Bible is filled with Promises of God, we must be bold to hold on to the word even in the face of opposing circumstances or situations. 

The Bible says God has given every believer, all of us, authority over every unclean spirit. And we have the secret weapon – that by prayer we can loose and bind things.

Romans 8:15-16 says, “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God:” This tells us we can be bold.

In Isaiah 43:2, God says if we go through the deep waters of life He will be with us. So we have to always remember that when we go into the deep God says He will be with us.

Do we persist with God? Do we give up praying too soon? We need to learn that God encourages persistent faith (Luke 18:1-8). He always emphasises the need to pray always and not to lose heart.

CONFESSION: I DECLARE THAT ALL OF GOD’S PROMISES IN CHRIST THEY ARE YES ALREADY, AND BY MY TRUST IN JESUS, I RESTFULLY TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD. I DO NOT FRET IN THE FACE OF CONTRARY CIRCUMSTANCE; MY HEART IS FIRM TRUSTING THE LORD. IN JESUS NAME

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING
