KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Timothy 6:12 ” Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses”.
What do you do when the condition seems not to change even after the prayer of faith or you have appropriated the scripture?
This is where our key scripture comes into play. Our key scripture says, “fight the good fight of faith lay hold on eternal life……”. At this stage you have to fight the fight of faith.
The fight of faith is the attitude coupled with actions maintaining your confidence of victory in the Lord, even when everything seems to be failing. Your faith is the main determinant whether you stay healed or not. Satan’s target in such a moment is mainly to keep you focused on the symptoms so he could make your faith ineffective. In the parable of the sower the Lord explained about the seed that fell on rocky ground as follows.
Mark 4:17 reads “And have no root in themselves; and endure but for a time: afterwards when AFFLICTION or PERSECUTION ariseth for the word’s sake immediately they are offended”.
Dear child of God, that stiff opposition has arisen because of the word of faith in your heart. The enemy seeks that you lose your grounds and your stand on the word. Your faith places you in the very class of God. Mark 9:23 “Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to them that believe”. Do you also remember that “with God all things are possible”. Your faith is the strongest force in this universe. It seriously destroys the agenda of Satan. He would do everything possible for you to lose it. This, the Bible says, fight for it. Keep the word of God in your heart, on your eyes and in your mouth (Proverbs 4:20-21) Declare the scriptures to yourself, to God, and to the devil. In such moments don’t focus on your condition that looks bad. Faith is always a product of the word. Faith is a supernatural thing and will create your miracle for you.. Maintain your ground in the word just as Abraham did in Roman’s 4:18-20. Verse 19 reads “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb”.
Abraham, in spite of his age and that of the wife, believed God to receive his answer.
Your faith would not fail. You would walk in health.
My faith in times of trials is unshaken. I focus on the word of God keeping my faith strong and active. I will always come out victorious.
1 Peter 5:9 “Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”.
1 Peter 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”:
