For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)
The walk of faith is the lifestyle of every Christian. The earlier you realize this, the better for you. The reason is that you’ll be confronted with several challenges along your path. Amidst these, your testimony must remain consistent with what God has said. The Bible says, And being not weak in faith, he (Abraham) considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God (Romans 4:19-20).
People laughed at and made mockery of Abraham, yet, he kept testifying that God has made him the father of many nations and his wife, Sarah, mother of princes. At the end, his tongue-work produced for him a son just as the Lord had said. Moreover, the Bible says, And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Revelations 12:11 KJV).
Though the devil accused them day and night, they overcame him by their testimonies. Your testimony is your victory! You can’t afford to be swayed by what you see, feel or hear; otherwise, you’ll begin to talk like ordinary men. 2 Corinthians 4:18 says, 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. When you walk by faith, your words may sound foolish to the spiritually undiscerning but you’re speaking the wisdom of God. The Bible says, But the natural man receiveth not the things of the spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1Corinthians 2:14). So put your tongue to work and build your life strong as you testify of the Lord’s goodness everyday.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease (Genesis 8:22).
The Lord didn’t say, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest time…shall not cease.” To say “seed time and harvest time” suggests that there’s a definite time of sowing and a definite time of harvest. But “seedtime and harvest” means harvest is anytime. In other words, you might as well consider today the day of harvest!
What the Lord is saying to us here is that though there be seedtime (a time of sowing), there’s no fixed time for your harvest; you can call it forth anytime! So your harvest ought to come in ways that are supernatural. For example, the Bible says Isaac sowed during the time of famine—a time when it was naturally impossible for harvest—yet he received in the same year a hundredfold (Genesis 26:12-13).
Others sowed beside Isaac and got no harvest, yet Isaac reaped a miraculous harvest at the time natural conditions weren’t favourable for harvest. That’s how it ought to be in your life. Your harvest is “now; your miracle is now. Go ahead and sow your seed, and the Lord will bless and multiply it back to you. Whether it’s money-seed, seeds of prayer, or seeds of faith-confessions—begin to relate with your harvest by faith.
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth (Revelation 5:10)
Jesus said in Matthew 18:18 “Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Here, Jesus didn’t mean that as you bind something on earth, God does the same thing in heaven. No. He meant that when you bind something on earth, you’re making a decree, and that decree is upheld by God in heaven.
God has made us kings, (Revelation 5:10), and the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 8:4, “Where the word of a king is, there is power.” As God’s words carry and transmit power, your words also have in them creative ability to produce for you a harvest of what you say. Sadly, not many Christians have operated in this power; some have only been used to religious Christianity, where they beg God for everything.
You’re a king, and kings don’t beg; they make decrees. Job 22:28 says, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee….” The reason you can make decrees or issue commands and have them established unto you is because you’re acting on the Word; you’re taking your place as God’s king-priests, ordained to reign in the earth.
Quit crying or begging God to do something about your situation; decree the Word of God concerning that matter and effect a change. Take advantage of your office today; live as the king that you are; issue decrees and see them come to pass.
Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm (1 Chronicles 16:22)
In the scripture above, God wasn’t just referring to anointed prophets as Moses, Elijah, and Elisha; He was referring to all His kids. We’re His anointed ones! Anyone that dares to touch or harm you will automatically incur God’s wrath, for His watchful eyes of protection are forever upon you. That’s why He admonishes us repeatedly in scripture not to fear.
You’re divinely protected from the peril and evil in the world. The Bible says “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee (Psalm 91:7). Jesus also said in Luke 10:19 “…and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Understand that your life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3); therefore, you’re divinely protected. It’s impossible for the enemy to get to you and harm you, for he’ll have to get to God first. God never allows the enemy the opportunity to harm or take advantage of His kids: “He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes” (1 Chronicles 16:21).
For example, God had to rebuke King Abimelech for the sake of His prophet Abraham. Abimelech had taken Sarah, Abraham’s wife, for himself. But God appeared to Abimelech in a dream and urged him to restore Abraham’s wife, or face the death penalty (Genesis 20:2-3). This shows how much the Father watches over us with holy jealousy.
The Bible says you’re the apple of God’s eye: “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye (Zechariah 2:8). Since God will not allow anyone poke Him in the eye, it therefore means He won’t allow anyone hurt or harm you. No wonder he says `no weapon formed against you shall prosper’ (Isaiah 54:17).
