And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. (Genesis 21:1-2 KJV)
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, it is the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). You ought to notice here that faith is the substance so the one who believes must consider himself a holder of the thing that he is believing for.
When you hold on to the word of God and His promises, He is sure to fulfill everything that He has spoken. Many miss the mark because they are not consistent in their faith. The above scripture clearly tells us that the Lord visited Sarah as He had promised! Here was a 90 year old woman, her system was unable to give birth anymore but because God the maker of everything had spoken, it happened.
Right at the set time, God came through but it needed faith from Abraham to keep the wheels of the promise in traction! You have to believe! No matter what circumstance you face, if God Has spoken it, He will fulfill it. He is able to do exceeding abundantly above our thoughts and imaginations (Ephesians 3:20).
Jesus cursed the fig tree and it dried from its roots! The disciples marveled and Jesus answered them and said, “Have faith in God.” He continued and said in Matthew 21:22
“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” When you pray are you believing? Do you have faith of the end result or you are just being religious? ‘Whatsoever you shall ask’, there are no things that faith distinguishes. It is cable of bringing healing, deliverance, financial liberty and favour into your life. Whatever it is as long as it’s in His word in will be delivered.
What did you pray for today? Did you pray in faith (believing)? The enemy will come and knock at the door to challenge the word of God and your faith. Don’t allow him to do so, continue declaring what the Word of God says and he will leave you alone. Faith holds power to move mountains. It can reorganize things in your life. You might have been born in poverty, faith can raise you up to wealth! You might have been told the disease in your system is incurable, faith holds the power to move that mountain.
I encourage you today not to give up. Your miracle is around the corner. Look how long Abraham waited for Isaac? He believed that God who had promised would surely do it according to His word.
Today I pray for you that your spirit man may be reignited and that faith will arise in you to deal with every circumstance. This is a shield capable of changing things on your behalf and turning back all the negative arrows of the enemy.
Today I believe that my situation is due for change. I lift the shield of faith and quench all the arrows of the enemy. I wait upon the Lord believing that He will fulfill every word He spoke in my life in Jesus’ name!
