“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, where unto thou art also called and hast proffered a good profession before many witnesses”. 1 Timothy 6:12
Jesus did it all, won it all and gave us the victory. However, we have to fight the good fight of faith to be able to receive our breakthrough. Beloved this is a battle that you must win. Faith is a fight to win for all believers. Lack of understanding can hinder your faith and stop you from receiving your miracles. Lack of knowledge of God’s word is the greatest hindrance to faith. Faith comes by hearing the word of God; which means that when you don’t hear and understand the word of God, your faith is zero. If you have knowledge of God’s word, then faith comes. Therefore our faith grows as our understanding of the word of God grows. Furthermore, if you don’t understand your place in Him as a child of God, you will never live the victorious life that should be yours. Yesterday we looked at people who have an erroneous thinking that the sacrifice on the cross was not enough and they still need to re-qualify themselves to be able to have the proper standing to ask God for a blessing.
A lack of understanding of your place in Christ hinders you from the supernatural and miraculous life. This is why so many Christian are living defeated lives today. Beloved, you’ve been redeemed; your sins past and present, blotted out; you’ve been raised with Him; seated in the heavenly places where He is; you are there, far above principalities and powers; as He is, so are you here on earth; a partaker of His divine nature; joint heir with Him, and so on. In Jesus you have all the blessings you will ever need. All you have to do is declare it non-stop. Faith’s confessions create the expected reality. If the promises and provisions of God’s word never become real to you, they will never do you any good. It is not the believing that those miracles are real that blesses you but the faith-fight. Faith is standing strong, declaring that what you believe will materialize in your life. You must meditate on the promises, confess them and keep possessing them as yours even when there’s no sign of change. That’s the fight of faith that will bring your expectations to you. Don’t lack this understanding.
SAY THIS PRAYER
Father, I know that in Christ Jesus all things are mine. I begin to lay claim to my breakthroughs in Jesus name. Amen
Your expectations shall never be cut-off. What you’re looking for shall enter your hand, in Jesus name.
<Saved from death>
I went to visit my sister where she is married and met her in a bad health situation. She was in a state of coma; couldn’t walk or talk. I remembered I had the communion blood and the oil. I immediately sprinkled them in her mouth. To the glory of God, the dying woman came back to life and recovered fully. Hallelujah!
