Faith under fire will be purified; it will shine as gold to reveal the Son. Our trials produce godly character, declare a marvelous testimony, and teach us how to comfort others. It’s also to prove something-our faith overcomes it all!
“For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that
has overcome the world, even our faith.” (I John 5:4)
One of my favorite quotes from college is, “God is not concerned about your happiness; He is concerned about your holiness.” All of the situations in your life aren’t in vain; it’s completing the story; the story God’s written for your life. “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:16)
“Faith is the unshakable confidence that God will do what He said He would do.” Tina Wetor
Faith believes God for the harvest when the seed is planted. It’s waiting and trusting God with no physical evidence of the answer; although the answer is promised.
What is the answer you are praying for?
Is it the salvation of your spouse? The Word of God provides a promise to stand upon, “They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” (Acts 16:31) Is your husband not saved or leading the family as the Word advises; Isaiah 54:5-6 is perfect!
“Fear not, for you will not be put to shame; and do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced; But you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.” For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth. “For the LORD has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected, “SAYS YOUR GOD!”
Declare the Word of God over your situation!
The Word of God provides a promise to anchor your soul but to build your faith. It’s only through hearing the Word will our faith grow! So, scream the truth even if your voice shakes! When the enemy whispers doubt; speak the truth! Keep speaking the truth until there is a peace into your soul! It’s only when the peace rules your heart and mind will it keep your feet securely on the rock! Whatever the circumstances of your life; you are over-comer by the faith you possess. Even if it’s as small as a mustard seed, faith is powerful! Its power will move mountains but only it’s used.
