SET YOUR FAITH ON COURSE BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME DSc, DD.
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).
God loves you and cares about you, regardless of the challenges and difficulties you may be facing right now. He always wants to see you win and live happy every day. Jesus said, “…In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Never allow anything get you frustrated; train your faith. Tell yourself, “Against hope, I believe in hope that all things are working together for my good” (Romans 8:28).
The triumphant life is yours in Christ Jesus; refuse to settle for less. Things might not exactly be going as you’ve expected, but maintain your confession of the Word. Don’t accept defeat and don’t give in to sickness or anything that hurts. Don’t say, “I’ve been infected,” just because you noticed some symptoms in your body. Faith doesn’t consider the symptoms or circumstances. Faith considers the Word.
Symptoms or the doctor’s diagnosis shouldn’t change your confession. Keep the Word in your mouth. It doesn’t matter how you feel or the figures in your bank statement; it doesn’t change who you are. Refuse to be rated by your circumstances. The things you see with your physical eyes are subject to change. Therefore, set your faith on course. Your faith is your currency; and with it, nothing shall be impossible to you.
Every adversity you face is your opportunity to experience and manifest the glory of God: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” (2 Corinthians 4:17). No matter what you go through in life, it’ll turn out for your good, as long as you turn your eyes away from the conditions or circumstances, to the Word. Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith….”
He perfects your faith; therefore, never give up. Don’t say, “The trouble was too much, and so I gave up”; no, take on the shield of faith. With your faith, you can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Your faith is a shield; use it.
God Bless You.
