36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”
Today’s Inspiration: Jesus always demands our faith and belief as criteria for healing, raising the dead or multiplication of food to feed the hungry hearers of the Gospel. He always requests us not to be afraid but just believe. Mark 5:36.
Defeated life is not in God’s plan. He has given us every spiritual weapon to live a daily successful life. If you moan over your defeat, it is because you yield to defeat and not because He was not there to give everything that would take you through the wilderness to victory. Instructions were given by the Lord how to deal with the enemies. They believe and act accordingly and the enemies were defeated. How important it is to obey the Lord even if it does not make sense. 2 Chronicles 20:22.
What is Faith? Faith is possessing the desire with authority. Whatever you desire when you have the faith, it will come to you. Matthew 15:28.
God also tells us to believe. Abraham believed God and he was credited as righteous. Once we believe in God we shall be established. When we believe the prophets, we shall prosper. 2 Chronicles 20:20. We must experience God daily in an awesome way so that whatever we do prosper.
The Bible tells us not only to trust God with all our heart but to acknowledge His ways and He will direct our paths. Proverbs 3:5-6. The word ‘acknowledge’ comes from the word Yada meaning we need to know Him by observation, search out the revelation and reflect. But the highest form of Yada is in direct intimate contact with Him. It is through intimacy with Him that His instructions became very clear and we do not fear. Joshua spent hours in the presence of God before he makes any decisions.
If you are launching a big business, you need faith and authority. When God gives you additional business, it is not to let go of your current business where God’s hand is on it till today. This additional business is to act as a bonus to you.
To conquer your giants who are trying to rob you of your health and wealth, you need to know his weakness and have total allegiance to God like David did. He has only a life to live. He has experience killing the bear and the lion, therefore taking on the giants is nothing if he practised the same principle of fighting Goliath in the name of the Lord. This principle always works. I have one brother who asked me to pray for his interview. I told him to go in the name of the Lord and He will succeed. True enough, the interview was successful and he got the job. To God be the glory! For years he was looking for a job.
Are you abiding by His word? If you are His disciple then you must abide by His word. John 8:31. It is only by the acknowledgement of the truth can we be free. John 8:32. To conquer the giants with the truth, you must conquer the giants of fear of failure from within. He was so confident that he challenged the giant that his sword cannot be compared to the Holy spirit’s sword which is the words of truth of God. He will surely conquer. It is through wilderness experience that he was made strong from within and win a reputation that even the women of the land sang that whilst Saul kills thousands, David kills tens of thousands. 1 Samuel 18:6.
You will only prosper by your righteousness which is your belief and according to the cleanliness of your hands and acknowledge his ways. 2 Samuel 22:21-22.
