There have been many times, in the midst of our storms, that our faith becomes tested. We begin to give up on the vision that God had instilled in our hearts, leading us to give up and turn away from God and His plans. Sadly, that only leads us down a road of nothing but struggle and darkness.
You see, without Faith, we are lead to think and act out of all those emotions that the devil is known for. Instead of seeing the blessings and testimony that lies ahead, all we see is the disaster and the unknown. Sometimes it’s hard to hear Him when we have distractions of the world. We want him to move us out of the destruction we are in, but we give up right before the breakthrough happens.
When we are in those dark moments, it is so hard to find the faith we need to see the light that we so desperately want to see. We start getting frustrated, blaming God, and then we make the biggest mistake we could possibly make, which is fixing it on our own. You see, it is in those midsts that you must rise up and be that strong daughter of God you were created to be, and fight for the victory that you deserve! The devil has already stolen so much from you! Not just from your past, but in that exact moment you are standing in right now! The devil is trying to hinder you and that is exactly why, you must not give up!
God is always with us! He hears our thoughts before they even enter into our minds. If God can detect what’s going to happen before it happens, then wouldn’t He not let us go through something that’s more that we can handle with God by our side? You see, our flesh tells us that our situations are more than we can handle. But that is a lie! Our spirits are fighters, because we have the blood of Christ running within us! God allows us to face and be in difficult situations, not because He is not there, or because He doesn’t hear or love us, but it’s because He knows His princess is a fighter and she will take her victory back from the devil! Going through trials makes us strong! Faith through trials is a process.
Don’t give up. When it feels like you can’t go on any longer, is usually when victory is just around the corner. Our battles shape us and become our greatest testimonies, and it’s those incredible testimonies that become people’s inspiration to keep fighting on so they can become conquerers!!
So keep fighting on, and know that God IS on your side! He is watching His princess from above, fighting and defeating the very person He fought and defeated so we can live a great life! You will never fail because you have the greatest warrior and Father already in you and that is GOD!
