Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)
The enemy is very busy in trying to distract you from your purpose. The moment you feel strong and start believing God for what He has promised you, Satan begins to fill your mind with doubt. Don’t weigh in to the enemies tactics. It’s his job and he does it well. He starts with a thought that he gets you to start thinking about, then you replay it over and over in your mind. Then in a few days you’re off track. You are no longer thanking God for your promise, you are no longer praying about it, you’re no longer dreaming about it and having conversations that keep you focus. As a result you have succumbed to satan’s victory.
Your faith has to stand the challenge! You have to know in your spirit what God says about you and your purpose. You can defeat the enemy! He is challenging your faith. God is observing to see how you are going to handle the thoughts of doubt he is throwing your way. Stand up and do your job well! God allowed Job’s faith to be challenged. He gave satan permission to challenge Job’s faith. Job passed the faith challenge! Give satan a few choice words that God says about him, and watch your faith ignite to a new level in Jesus Christ!
