BULL DOG FAITH
We need to be aggressive with our faith. The devils are out there working overtime, causing tragedy, death, sickness, poverty, heartache – and they are being aggressive! The thing is – we have power OVER them in Jesus’ name, so why do we struggle with those things???
The devil’s plan is to drain, weaken, and wear down our faith through continual pressure, disappointments, and discouragement. He wants us to back down from using our faith.
Maye you’re behind in your mortgage, didn’t get that raise, hear about some possible lay-offs, you begin to dwell on things and worry sets in. Your attitude begins to slip into doubt, fear, and may even self-pity. It’s time to get aggressive with your faith! I call it ‘getting into fight mode’.
Hebrews 10:38-39 tells if the just shall live by faith and if he draws back, God will have no pleasure in him. WOW! We can’t be passive, we must be pressing. We can’t be surviving, we must be thriving!
Luke 18 asks the question: when the Son of Man (Jesus) returns, will He find faith? First John 5:4 tells us the whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world and this is the victory that overcomes the world – our faith.
First Timothy 6:12 says to fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Faith takes, is aggressive, persistent, and fights the good fight!
Drive the enemy out! Read Numbers 33:50-55 – pricks in your eyes, effecting your vision, your ability to see yourself as an overcomer; thorns in your side – constant pain causing an inability to fight;
DRIVE THE ENEMY OUT! You can do it, Jesus gave you the authority over all the power of the enemy!
