We are bombarded with fear, with hopelessness and with discouragement every day. They come at us like rapid fire and they can really destabilize that. I used to think that because I was saved I was stronger than anything the enemy could send my way. I used to think that all I had to do was be there and just take on anything and not be derailed. I thought that being saved and knowing that I was saved was enough. Then I kept being attacked by the enemy and his evil agents. One thing after another would happen and each time those bad events would take a toll on my faith. I was saved but obviously knowing it in my head was not enough. I need something more. I need a weapon. I need a tactic. I need to counterattack and stand strong. What I found out was that the Word of God was all the ammunition I needed. I found out that I could fight back with the Word of God and win.
The Bible tells us that faith comes from hearing and hearing from the Word of God. When I took the Word of God as my weapon of choice, my faith increased. My faith in what Jesus could do grew stronger. The Word of God was exactly what I had been missing. Before that I had read the Word from time to time but I never meditated on it. Meditation on the Word allows it to develop in us and bear good fruit. It gives birth to faith in our hearts and it gives it wings. Wings that can take us to higher places of hope. I found that the Word of God was my weapon of hope and no negativity could stand in its way when I held on to it. Today, friend, I want to encourage you to fight against the fear, the hopelessness and the discouragement in the world with the Word of God. Watch the news and you will be left with a great feeling of loss, failure and fear. Open the Word of God and you will be left with hope and the assurance that God has your back and you have nothing to worry about.
This fight of faith is real and like I said, the Word of God is the best tool we can use to fight and win. Everything we need every day is in the Word. The hope, the peace, the joy and the love we need are in the Word. The boost and the motivation we need are in the Word. All these amazing things in the Word enable us to fight back when we are assailed by the vicious agents of the enemy. If you are going through financial difficulties, you are attacked by fear, despair and lack. These three evil agents can’t win against the Word of God so take out the Word and start prayerfully meditating on it. Meditate on it until you get a seed of faith in your spirit. Pray and read the Word. You will be armed with enough power to fight back. Take a stand of faith by staying in the Word. You don’t have to let negative thoughts win you over. You don’t have to go along with the bad news and the bad feelings and emotions. Arm yourself with the Word of God every day and fight back. There is something in it for you today. There will be something in it for you tomorrow. You can fight back every day. Don’t give up. God has all you need and more. You are going to make it. Stay in faith! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
