Protect Your Faith

God’s faithfulness is sure. If for any reason you ever find yourself questioning God’s faithfulness, stop yourself that very moment and refuse to allow the devil flood your mind any further. Yes, any thought that makes you question God’s faithfulness is from the devil.

In a world where a whole lot is changing, and at a rapid rate, God remains Who He is. He isn’t just Who He is from the beginning, He’s the One Who fits into the past, present and future, at the same time. The changes around us are like the past to Him, because He’s already acquainted with the change the world will be experiencing, ten years from today. Therefore, He is Who He is, at very point in time. What He said, is saying and will say about Himself doesn’t misalign. He’s faithful, and you can trust Him, recklessly.

We know that life can throw you blows that’ll make you want to question God’s faithfulness. Some things don’t just make any sense: the death of a loved one who didn’t want to die, the abuse you might have experienced as a child, the hurt that was imposed on you, when all you set out to do was good, the hard work that don’t produce results, the sickness you desperately need healing for, etc.

“God why?” isn’t a question that you’ll ever live without. If you don’t ask it for yourself, you’ll ask on behalf of others. There are a whole lot of reasons why the bad happen, even to Christians. This post isn’t about listing out those reasons, but you should know, the chief of those reasons is the devil (the prince of this world, who’s out to steal, kill and destroy).

If this post isn’t about listing out the reasons why bad things happen, then what is it about? It’s about you and your faith in God.

Protect Your Faith. Guard it. See it as a treasure you can never lose, or leave out in the open. Every attack the devil will ever launch against you is towards your faith. The devil wants you to lose the faith you have in God’s wisdom, power, and goodness. Don’t lose it.

When the storm comes and the waves hit hard, instead of questioning God’s faithfulness, here are better approaches:

  • Tell God how you feel. Explain the pain, disappointment and hurt to God.
  • Ask God to show you what to do.
  • Remind yourself that God is faithful, even if your feelings don’t agree. Say it, out loud, to yourself.
  • Remind yourself of the times God came through for you, then, thank Him.
  • Look at God’s faithfulness in the lives of others. One of the ways the devil tries to attack our faith is by making us turn blind eyes to the faithfulness of God in our lives, while amplifying the good things that are happening to others. Well, use the devil’s trick against him. When you see the good things that are happening to others, instead of letting it get to you, let it refuel your faith. Look at those things in the lives of others and say out loud, “That’s a sign that God is faithful. I can, and should trust Him for my life too.”
  • Rebuke the devil. Most times, God is just waiting on you to shut the devil up, declare His promises over your life and insist on what you want to see in your life, while you’re out there thinking God is the one who needs to do something.

The Bible, in Joshua 20:43-45, says, “So the Lord gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give their fathers… Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.”

The land was promised to the fathers, but the fathers couldn’t receive it because of their unbelief. Nonetheless, God remained faithful to His promise. If you don’t believe, or you’re double minded, you won’t receive from God (SEE Jas 1:6-8). You not receiving from God doesn’t mean God isn’t faithful. From the days of the Bible to today, there are a whole lot of persons who are bold witnesses that God is faithful. You should key in, and decide that you’ll be a bold witness too. DON’T LET THE DEVIL MAKE YOU MISS OUT.

“…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6

The devil knows that the above scripture is true, so he comes after your faith. When he comes, fight back. Protect Your Faith.

My prayer for you and me:

Like never before, may our faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit get bigger and stronger. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Get in the Gym,

Stay Spiritually Fit.
