Walking in God’s Confidence
Several times as children of God we are buffeted by the storms of life that we wonder if God can really hear us. The pain gets so devastating that we consider throwing in the towel at the slightest provocation at this point. Some of us declare that this was not what they expected or sign for, thus, they look for every way to bail out. Friend, there will always be storms whether you are in Christ or not. The difference and consolation we have is that in Christ, He is with us all the way. He promised in His word that He would never leave nor forsake us. The Bible clearly tells us that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12) but against wicked spirits in high places. They inhabit certain situations to torment us but if we fail to understand and see that God had promised not to leave nor forsake us, there is the tendency to become a victim. Are you buffeted by debts, your promotion withheld, you have done everything but cannot find a decent and befitting job? Don’t be discouraged God is at work on your behalf. You might argue that you had been praying for years and nothing seem to be coming out of it. It is time to take the offence! Our God takes the offence but His children are always playing defense. God has gone on the offensive on our behalf, it is for us to walk as victors and conquer and not walk before Him as cowards, doubters or fearful – these nullify the conquests we ought to receive in Him. When the children of Israel were about to cross the Jordan in Deuteronomy 9: 1-6, God told them about the fearsome and undefeated giants in the land that He had given them as an inheritance. The land is theirs and anyone that is occupying it must leave, that is the command of God. Is the enemy struggling with you in your finances, peace, home, job or your academics, it has no stay permit there it must LEAVE! Do remember that in the Scripture above, it was God who drew the attention of the people to these giants as He drew your own attention by confrontations, dreams, word of knowledge and revelation to the giants facing you. Just as He told the people of Israel He is equally telling you not to be afraid but believe and receive His victory that He is handing over to you today. He says He has gone before you like a Consuming Fire to devastate and subdue your enemies, then you must enter the land and chase them out. The power for them to hurt you is taken away, however for this to be activated in your life; you must receive, believe and walk in this TRUTH! Whenever fear comes to remind you of this situation tell it that you already have the victory over it. God’s confidence is released unto you mightily in Jesus Christ name. God bless you.
