How many times have you been in a situation when you knew your faith wasn’t strong enough to overcome? Unfortunately for many, it’s way too often. My pastor says if you wait ’til you have the need, you waited too long.
Let’s look at some examples. If you wait ’til you’re sick to start confessing healing scriptures, it’s too late. If you wait ’til the rent is due before you start confessing financial scriptures, it’s too late. So, what do you do?
Instead of waiting ’til you get sick, start confessing “health and healing” scriptures and speaking to your body now: No weapon formed against me shall prosper. God always causes me to triumph in Christ Jesus. With long life will He satisfy me. By the stripes of Jesus I have been healed. My youth is renewed as the eagles.
By confessing what God has to say, you’re fortifying yourself before the attack and in most cases, your faith-filled positive confessions will ward off the attacks.
God’s Word always works but you have to build up your walls ahead of time. Faith in God’s Word comes by hearing God’s Word. You can’t build your faith in the middle of a storm.
Building and developing strong faith takes diligence and effort, doing it on purpose. You don’t get strong faith by accident! Get into the Word and let the Word get into you. God is faithful, faithful, faithful and He is always looking for someone who will stand on His Word, believe it, and see it come to pass.
