Guard your faith, Christian Woman!
Have you ever thought about how valuable your faith is? You know, the ability to hope, to rely on, and wholly trust in Jesus. The enemy of our souls is after our faith. He thoroughly understands its worth. So should you!
How to have faith?
You hold on to it!
He knows your dogged belief in Jesus paralyzes him whereas doubt empowers him and ALL the wicked work of hell. The Bible mentions the shield of faith “which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one”. No wonder the enemy has a spiritual bullseye on your faith! Your faith is powerful, priceless and critical to spiritual warfare.
Remember when Jesus told Peter how the enemy wanted to destroy him? In Luke 22:32, He says:
“…But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.”
Funny, that Jesus didn’t say something like “I prayed Satan would leave you alone” or “I prayed you’d be able to understand things”.
No, He said “…that your faith not fail“.
Next time you’re wondering how to have faith, remember you can pray for your it to be strong.
Pray for your assuredness in Jesus!
I think this should be our prayer in times of struggle. We are so quick to pray “mountains be removed” or problems go away.
I can’t remember the last time I prayed for my belief not to fail. How about you?
Honestly, this notion reminds me of an old song that said: “Lord, help me to hold out.” Yes, “hold out” …that’s something to ponder, isn’t it?
Also, protect it, Christian woman
Ignore the whispers of the enemy that try to make you doubt and question God’s promises. Fight Him with the Word of God as your weapon.
When he threatens your Godly confidence, when he challenges your Godly choices or when he smirks at your lifestyle – hold fast to your confidence in Jesus!
His wicked voice may come through friends, mates, logic or even the pulpit.
Refute it, ignore it. On second thought …DON’T ignore it! Battle it with the Word of God! Knock it down in Jesus’ name!
Read your Bible too!
Want to know how to keep strong for real? You read that Bible until you know it and until it’s words pop into your spirit without any effort. God’s Word empowers you in the faith and gives you plenty of reasons to trust Jesus, Christian Girl!
Know Your God and hold on to your faith in Jesus!
