“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6.

When it comes to faith, we need to stay in the Spirit, Satan can make us feel depressed, down or discouraged, throwing thoughts of fear at us. What we feel is irrelevant; it's what we believe that will rule us.

“The devil is a liar and a thief.”

“The Holy Spirit is an encourager!”

Everything the Holy Spirit does bears fruit. It is impossible for Him to be barren. God is full of faith. He believes in Himself; He believes in the Son; He believes that the Holy Spirit can do wonders and great miracles in our life. God believes in His own ability and power, so we had better agree with Him. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or [even] think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20.

This promise is tied to the amount of God's power we allow to work in us. Even if we have broken the power of a negative religious spirit, it can come back in through a “works” mentality. The blessing of God is upon us in Christ Jesus. As we walk in Him, we will receive His provision by faith. There is no other way.

Having the Word only in our mind produces no power; it merely gives us mental assent to the truth. Faith releases the power, but the Word of God directs the flow and tells us what to believe.

Many things are not spelled out clearly in the Bible. We must seek the mind of the Spirit, which never contradicts the written Word. The Holy Spirit will tell us how to release our faith to believe for the blessing of God in our lives. If we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, nothing will hinder our prayers. If other things come first in our lives, we open the door of interference to the devil and thereby step out of the flow of the Spirit.

Satan's only power is to lie, and he will lie to us if we will listen. We need to reject his lies and speak the promises of God. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 87:32). Free from what? Free from that which is true in the natural! It is true you may be in need, but the truth is that “my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19). It is true that we are weak, but the truth is that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13). It may be true that I am sick, but the truth is “by His stripes we are healed” and “by whose stripes you were healed.” (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24). Satan uses many different lies to cause us to fear and to keep us from God's truth. If we learn to deal with the lie, then the fear will die.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
