There comes a time in all our lives, when we have done all that we could do and fought as hard as we could. And now we stand helpless in the sight of a situation that we cannot change. It is at this point in our walk that we must not allow the enemy to make us believe that our prayers have fallen on deaf ears. Don’t stop standing on God’s word and say, “What’s the use of praying?” and give up. Giving up won’t accomplish anything, except push you further into despair.
The first thing I want you to remember is this; when the opposition comes on strong, it’s because the enemy is trying your faith. He’s putting thoughts of despair into your mind so you will give up because he knows you are so close to victory. We must close our minds to his tricks of intimidation; and hold fast to our profession of faith. We must persevere in prayer and not allow the enemy to steal the word God has planted in our hearts.
The second thing is: BUT GOD… God and God alone will bring you out of your difficulties, but only if you hold fast to your confession of faith, don’t faint, and pray
Hear what He says:
I want you to come boldly to the throne of grace to seek mercy, and find grace to help you in your time of need. And having done all that you can, stand and cease not praying; for the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Don’t waver when you pray. Don’t waver in your faith, but be strong and of good courage knowing that Your Father always hears you when you pray. Never forget that I can do great things in your life when you have complete trust and faith in Me.
Don’t allow the enemy of your soul to tempt you to give up. You must live by faith, for it doesn’t bring pleasure to My soul when you draw back in faith. Have faith in Me to bring to pass My word in your life. Persevere in praying. Persevere with your confession of faith; and then trust Me to bring the increase.
My child, you’ve battled storms before and won; why is this on so different? Is it because it’s lasting longer? Well, let Me tell you this; when you see your blessing you will understand why. So, pray
on My child, pray on.
MEDITATE ON HIS WORD:
Luke 18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Co 3:6-7 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
Heb.10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
1Pe. 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and
honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
