Regardless of what challenges we face, always remember that you are strong. I recently ordered this bracelet from an Avon representative that I could not stop gazing on one of the page’s brochure. This bracelet meant a lot to me, instead of it being for fashion.
Instead of giving up on our dreams and giving up on helping our societies, our families, and our friends, “YOU” can affect and make a difference in this world, whether you believe me or not.
In Matthew 17:20 (NIV), the Lord made a statement on the topic of what it means to have faith in Him. He said “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
No amount of challenges can overcome you. When I think of ‘Faith’, I think of another word that I enjoy living by: ‘Bravery’. I have ‘faith’ in Him so much so that it causes me to feel ‘brave’ over my challenges and I can quickly sidestep and brush off those days of being overwhelmed with pain.
You might be asking “What does your testimony have to do with what the Lord has quoted in the bible?” My answer: One thing I always gain whenever I read a quote, a prayer, a song, or even the laws within the bible is an increased Faith within my spirit. My faith and continued trust in our Heavenly Lord, Jesus, is what gives me that nudge and push to keep on fighting. The enemy of God is trying his hardest to tempt me and to force me to turn away from the Lord in any way that he can try to get hold a foothold on my spirit. Ephesians 4:26-27 (NIV) says “in your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.”
I imagine the enemy as being my home’s rug mats that I would use to wipe my feet. I believe in the Lord and I know that despite us not being able to physically see the enemy, God is spiritually taking care of all of all of us that continue to believe and have faith in Him.
I will not yield or stop moving because of what the enemy expects for me to do. I will keep on moving, staying strong, and keeping my faith in Christ.
