KEY SCRIPTURE: Mark 4:17 KJV” And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended”.
We have learnt that; it is the presence of God’s word in you that overcomes the devil and brings to birth that which God intends for you to have. The second approach that Satan’s uses to make God’s word ineffective in the Christian, is to raise, challenges, problems, afflictions and many more in the life of the Christian. He does this so that the Christian would turn his anger towards God and His word. This is how our opening scripture put it. Mark 4:17 KJV ” And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended”.
Please just consider what the word said. It says the afflictions and persecutions arise because of the word in you. His ultimate purpose is that you would be offended in the word. If he succeeds in making you feel God has disappointed you, you would not trust the word any longer. There are a number of Christians who have been caught up in this satanic orchestration. They unfortunately vent their anger on God. There are too many Christians who are unhappy, because they feel God has disappointed them.
Dear child of God, it is not God who is refusing to heal you. It is not God who is keeping you from having the fruit of the womb, or even preventing you from getting a life partner. God’s solution to you, is His word, don’t turn away from it. Heb 10:38 KJV “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him”. Your faith in the word is what overcomes Satan. Keep the word in your heart and say it continuously with your mouth. If you draw back, God would have no pleasure in you.
I keep God’s word in my heart. I do not turn to the left or to the right. No matter the opposition that may rise against me, I never lose my focus on the word. I always get my answers
