Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…- 2 Corinthians 2:14
Some of us are facing challenges that can be overcome with in the Word of God, but that faith must be diligently applied. You have to make a determined decision that you are going to fight the good fight of faith, no matter what it takes, until you have the victory. This isn’t for the faint of heart. It is for the ones who have made a choice and will not be swayed – that they will see their faith turned to sight. All of us face challenges that the devil brings against us and we all overcome the exact same way – by fighting the good fight of faith. Don’t believe anyone that tells you that there is no fight. They are either greatly mistaken or trying to mislead you.
Yes, there is a fight. It is the fight of faith. Don’t give up, don’t give in. Fight!
During a time of prayer, the Lord told me three things that will cause any Christian to walk in the victory that Jesus Christ has already provided. If you apply these three things to your life, your challenges will turn to testimonies.
Number one, pray the Ephesians prayers, daily. There is so much packed into the book of Ephesians and the prayers contained in them will put you over. These are power-packed faith prayers that will set you on course to overcome anything the devil throws at you. When you pray these prayers daily, confessing what the Lord says about you, you’re going to find things changing in your life that you didn’t even know needed to be changed.
Number two, meditate on the Word of God daily, especially in the area you are having challenges. Meditate – murmur, think about, reflect, and apply the Word to your life. As you think about what the Lord has promised, the Holy Spirit will bring revelation to you about His Word. The Lord recently gave me much revelation on this. One thing He shared with me is how to meditate. Take a single scripture and read it aloud seven times. Then spend seven minutes thinking on and meditating on it. After that, read that same scripture seven more times. Do this for seven days and you’re going to get tremendous revelation on it.
Number three, pray in the Spirit daily. As you pray in the Spirit, you pray out the mysteries of God and pray out His perfect will for your life. Praying in the Spirit is the doorway to the supernatural. Praying in the Holy Spirit builds you up on the faith you already have. Praying in the Spirit will develop your spirit and help bring the supernatural power of God into manifestation. Doing this continually on a daily basis will put you over.
You and I both know there are other things like the right confession, etc., but this is what the Lord showed me. You can’t disregard other important truths though, like the basics of Christianity that we must practice all our lives. That is what puts us over and causes us to be successful. I am only encouraging you in what you already know and believe. God is with us!
