It is not an easy thing to profess to be good Christians. In fact, it takes real courage, endurance and faith to withstand all the challenges. Without FAITH you become like a dead leaf in which the wind blows along at any direction. This is not what God wants from you.
You’re surely going to face challenges in your marriage, finance job, relationships, education, goals, business etc. The question you may ask yourself is “Why me?.” Yes, why you?. But the simplest answer is “It is not you ALONE.” STOP complaining and start relying on God and his beautiful promises for his beloved Children.
Our greatest mentor is ABRAHAM. He knew even if he loses everything including his only son(Isaac) God will provide. Knowing that God will provide he never doubted his word. It is the same word that Jesus and his apostles preached to us.
If you say you love God then do not let your faith waver when pains and sorrows arise in your life. Jesus Christ expects you to have faith before you can see a great change in your life. With faith in God, you can move mountains.
Doubt Is The Christian’s Enemy
Most at times, you would have that sense of emptiness. The Devil would force you to denounce knowing God or having faith in him. There is nothing heartbreaking than praying on several occasions and nothing happens. This is the crucial moment the Devil will tempt you. The father of lies(Lucifer) would whisper into your ears “you can’t” “give up on God” “Kill your self.” and so on and so forth.
That is the challenge I told about early. Be a real warrior of God. Jonny Cash once said:
“Being a Christian isn’t for sissies. It takes a real man to live for God – a lot more man than to live for the devil.”
– Johnny Cash
Would you give up on God?. I hope you said “No.”. Job in all his adversities never said “NO,” Abraham in his painful grievance never said “NO.” And they received doubled reward for their steadfastness in the Lord.
What You Must Do As A Christian
1. Believe that God lives in you. Never be ignorant about the fact that God is so close to us than expected. Allow yourself to feel his presence. (1 John 4:4)
1. Call on him in times of trouble. Prayer is the greatest weapon of fighting all your battles(Spiritual and Physical).
3. Rebuke the Devil in the name of Christ Jesus to leave your sight.
4. Employ these words from Abraham:
“Jehovah Jireh”(God will Provide) — Genesis 22:8.
5. Brace your blessings knowing that God will provide.
Prophet Kofi Danso
