Good morning beloved!
I want to encourage you that the reason God does not want us operating in the world’s system is because it is limited. The kingdom of God, on the other hand, has NO LIMITATIONS, as long as we operate in faith. Therefore, we must completely understand what faith really is in order to successfully use it.
Faith is a practical expression of the confidence we have in God and His Word (see Hebrews 11:1-9).
Confidence means that we fully trust God; that we believe in His ability to do what He said He would do from His Word. Our confidence is the key element in our walk of faith. 1 John 5:14-15 says,
• Now this is the confidence that we that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Our confidence in God and His Word needs to be developed. Do not become discouraged if it does not happen overnight. Satan will always attack our confidence because he does not want us to believe that the Word works. Hebrews 10:35 (AMP) encourages us in this way ~ It says,
• Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.
If we stop having confidence in the Word, we stop the manifestation we desire from it. Many times, when trouble comes our way, it is satan’s attack on our confidence. Hebrews 10:36 (AMP) says that we need steadfast patience and endurance to continue in our confidence.
True biblical patience is being consistently the same concerning our stance on the Word, no matter what is happening. So, when our confidence in the Word is attacked, we must practice being patient. When we allow our patience to work during trials and we refuse to doubt, regardless of the circumstances, we will see results.
For example, you may be confessing, “By Jesus’ stripes, I am healed!” You need to continue confessing and building your confidence in that Word, even when you feel sick. Feelings, bad circumstances, and bleak reports are not indications that the Word is not working because the Word always works. However, we must maintain our confidence in the Word to see results.
Remember family, God is no respector of persons (Romans 2:11), but He is a respector of faith. The Scripture declares in Romans 10:17 that faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. So, the more time you spend in the Word, the stronger your faith and confidence will become.
Praising God for NO LIMITATIONS,
