“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Genesis 1:3 KJV
In Genesis chapter 1, God gives us a perfect example of what our response should be when we are faced with challenging situations. Verse 2 says “the earth was without form and void”. There was darkness everywhere. But in verse 3, God declared His expectation. He said, “Let there be light”: and light manifested. As children of God, that should be our stand. We must commit ourselves to declaring the Word, and holding onto it without wavering until we see it manifest. Don’t you ever forget that He who promised is faithful. He will bring it to pass!
The adversary is not going to play dead and watch you succeed. He is going to come at you to test you and to see if you really know and believe the Word you are declaring. The Bible says that he walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). But he will not see you! However, you must be vigilant and stay in the Word. The devil’s goal is to ensure that the seed of the Word planted in your heart does not take root and bear fruit. To counter his plan, you must steadfastly feed on the word.
God has a lot of great things in store for you and you shall partake of it all. You will not miss out on God’s Commanded Blessings. What you have received from the Lord is permanent. The enemy shall not pluck it out from your hands. You will enjoy all that Christ paid the ultimate price for you to enjoy.
This day, 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. It shall be well with you. The Lord shall increase your greatness and comfort you on all sides.
