If we have faith in the Father and His Word, let us rejoice no matter what we may be going through. The Bible says in the Book of James 1:12 that, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”
Yes, we’ve given our lives to Jesus Christ. Yes, we’ve confessed our sins. Yes, we’re serving the Father. Yes, we know the Word. However, all these don’t count when the enemy shows up. It’s the Spirit of the Father in us that’ll prevail. No one can boast of His faith if the Father is not with him. Yes, you may boast when the atmosphere gives you peace. There are times when the Father Himself will allow the enemies to have their way. But the assurance we have in the Father and His Son will make us conquer.
When the Father first appeared to me, He taught and reveal many mysteries to me. Things which He hasn’t revealed to any man since He created the Earth, He revealed to me. I remember at the initial stage, He told me that “My son, no matter what you pass through in this journey, don’t say the Father has abandoned you. Accept it and move on by faith. I Am always with you, and I’ll be with you till the end.” However, when the heat of the fire was too much, it’s only the power of the Father that kept me from death. Absolutely nothing I’ve not seen. No one knows what each day will bring. But we hold on to the Word and promises of the Father. This gives us hope when all hope seems gone.
Beloved, count everything for joy! Affliction will always arise, but if we hold on to the Father, we will always triumph in the end. Where was the Father when they conspired against Daniel and his friends? The Father was there. He knew and saw everything. But they all took every pain with joy. The Father in His infinite power proved Himself and they were rescued. Let us turn every negativity into positivity through the knowledge we’ve received through Christ our Lord. May the power of Him who called us out of darkness into His eternal light always stand by us and grant us victory as we continue faithfully in this journey.
