Did you know as soon as you start standing on God’s Word and believing God for big things to happen in your life, the first thing the enemy will do is bring opposition in your life. The enemy wants to do everything he can to make you go into another direction. He doesn’t want to see God working in your life, he wants you to stay broke, busted and disgusted. The enemy will do everything he can to make you give up.
I can tell you from experience that the enemy will come against you extremely hard when you are paying your tithes, your offerings or doing something good towards others. The enemy will attempt to make you sicker or he’ll make sure you get a terrible diagnosis from the doctor when you are standing on God’s Word for healing your body. He’ll attack your finances when you are paying your tithes and First Fruit offerings; making you doubt if you should continue. All of a sudden you’ll find yourself having extra expenses because your car, your air conditioner, your roof or something else will breakdown. Maybe you’ve prayed that God opens doors that no man can close only to find yourself suddenly unemployed with no direction. There are many, many ways that the devil may attempt to get you to go in another direction and the negative voices that sabotage you the most will be within yourself or those closest to you.
But I’m here today to tell you “THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!”
Mark 5:35-36, 39: 35 While He was still speaking, some people came from the synagogue official’s house, saying [to Jairus], “Your daughter has died; why bother the Teacher any longer?” 36 Overhearing what was being said, Jesus said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid; only keep on believing [in Me and my power].” 39And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.”
In Mark 5:35, Jairus had gone to Jesus asking Him to heal His daughter. Jesus was on His way to help but those closest to Jairus came with bad news. Jairus’ daughter died before Jesus got there, so they were telling him not to bother Jesus anymore. They were telling him that it was no longer needed, that it was too late and that it was impossible now. However, Jesus saw the situation completely different. Mark 5:36 shows us that Jesus told Jairus “Do not be afraid and keep believing.”
What was Jesus saying? When everyone else is telling you that your situation, your finances, your health is impossible to turnaround, you have an Almighty God that says IGNORE WHAT THEY SAY BECAUSE NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO WILL KEEP BELIEVING!
Yes your pain and suffering is real. Your circumstances are real. BUT…don’t look at your circumstances. Don’t look at your checkbook. Don’t look at your unemployment. Don’t look at your diagnosis. Don’t listen to those negative voices and doubt surrounding you. Don’t look at anything but OUR HEAVENLY FATHER who wants to help you. He is anticipating and knows what you need. You don’t need to concern yourself with the “how”…God is filled with resurrecting power no matter what is happening in your life.
God says to believe in Him and Him alone! He can do the impossible! God is more than enough in every situation. He can and will do more than you can ever imagine. Don’t get stuck when the enemy attacks you. Don’t listen to the negative voices surrounding you. Don’t doubt when you are so close to seeing your promised land. Believe in your Heavenly Father who is capable to do exceedingly and more abundantly than you can ever dream! Be Bold in the midst of your adversity and fight the good fight of faith. For just like the Bible says in Mark 5:39, your situation is not dead but is sleeping. He will raise you up far greater than before. Keep believing and you too will see your circumstances come alive, birthed to newer heights. God will make a way when there isn’t any. He will make you the head and not the tail, above and not below! He will cause your frown to turn upside down with His power, His love, His provision and His healing power!
For further studies, I encourage you to watch this amazing teaching from Pastor Steven Furtick called “Why Bother”. It will help you feed your faith and stand strong in the midst of your battle. God bless!
