“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:28-29 NKJV
Your faith will be tested but, remember You are as bold as a lion.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 NKJV
You are strong in the Lord. You are fighting a good fight and you win. It is by faith, and by faith, and by faith again… repeat. It is by faith we overcome.
“in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.”
Ephesians 3:12 NKJV
Do not abort - do not leave a place, a position, a situation prematurely - you are in your wealthy place. What you see, what they say, and how they act could cause you make an emotional decision. Do not make decisions when you are emotional - STAY, PRAY, WAR, and TAKE exactly what the enemy is trying steal. We all have different situations that we must remain confident in - not being moved by our emotions. This is the test - STAY, PRAY, WAR and TAKE. Stay in faith - do not be moved.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” I John 5:4 NKJV
There were heros before us that used their faith. These heros before us did not have the Holy Spirit to help them. We have the Holy Spirit to help us stay in faith - to remain and not be moved no matter the test. Check out the struggles and prominent challenges experienced in times past, yet they did not abort - they did not denounce their faith - they remained confident and strong. There was an obvious greater conviction in them that prevailed over emotions and what it looked like.
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days. By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace. And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith;
-Stopped the mouths of lions,
-Quenched the violence of fire,
-Escaped the edge of the sword,
-Out of weakness were made strong,
-Became valiant in battle,
-Turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
-Women received their dead raised to life again.
-Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
*Hated without cause.
*Refused the kingdoms of this world.
-Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment.
-They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. (Hebrews 11:30-40 NKJV)
Final word - Seek Him & Keep Seeking Him (God and His presence):
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
