of Truth creates fatigue…
We learn in our Christian walk to stand in faith. Without Faith it is impossible to please the Father. We Christians all know this scripture.
Well…I was in Bible School last night…yes another 2 years of Bible School. No better way have I found to find your way back into the Truth of God’s Word. The teachings were outstanding as usual.
A friend, actually a husband and wife team, are teaching faith. My husband and I have a great love and respect for these two people. We are blessed to count them among our very best friends. The teaching was eye opening. ‘
Just when you think you have something down…well you all know.
My friend taught that we all stand in faith. Without the faith we can not get what we are trusting God to provide. If we cannot see ourselves within our goal we cannot access the promise we were given by God. This is all up to us as His children. He has provided all we need for life and abundance.
So we stand…and we become weary…we speak our weariness [which I believe is a problem in the first place]. We question whether we have heard from God, we question ourselves… that is assuming that we haven’t doubted all along…will He…can He….Why would He????
Well the analogy went like this…
We can stand behind our Breast Plate of Faith in these battles…these wars…yet we still become so very weary waiting on God…Why?
Well if we were in a literal war, our shield is there to protect our bodies…however how long can you stand up to an entire army battering away at your shield, without getting weary…without getting tired and bruised? Eventually we are going to weary…eventually we, our bodies, our spirits become battered. Eventually we will fall and be crushed by the shield itself…
The Breast Plate of Faith is only vitally successful when used with the Sword of Truth…our faith cannot replenish itself without the Word of God…if we are standing in Faith alone, what faith are we standing on? The faith of our own strength? How does that strength remain strong? By our own understanding?
NO by the Truth of the Word of God. This replenishes our understanding of our power and authority in Christ. Without it our faith faulters…its weakens…because our own minds begin to try and think of strategies to control the situation…schemes of our grandure.
We know to stand…We must stand in Faith, knowing that the promises and blessings of God are rightfully ours…we know that we know…
When we can do no more Stand in Faith! Just don’t forget to wield that Sword of Truth…it is the Word of God that brings the Victory!
