1 John 5:4: “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
The world today is plagued with economic problems and many have lost their jobs and sources of income. Many still are having problems with their finances and wondering when the crisis will end. However, understand that you don’t prepare for trouble in the day of trouble. This is the reason you ought to keep bombarding your spirit with the Word of God day in, day out.
The reason a Christian will go through terrible times because the financial state of the nation where he or she lives or the organization where he or she works has gone down is because he or she has neglected the Word of God. The Bible says, “…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32). I challenge you today to grow your faith with the Word of God. Build your faith strong with the Word because you need the Word to deal with the issues of life!
Soldiers are not trained during the time of war; rather, they are trained before the war comes. Thus, it’s wrong for your faith to fail in the day of battle. Begin today to consciously and voraciously store the Word of God in your heart, so that when trouble comes knocking, you will be standing and will not experience it.
Dear Father, I commend my heart to the Word of God which is able to build me up and give me an inheritance among them that are sanctified. I declare that today, I’m growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Word of God. Amen.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Act 20:32 “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”
Proverbs 24:10 “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small”
