Last week I discussed the principles that govern the operation of God on the earth. And I made it clear that the first principle is that you must make God your only source of total supply in everything you do on the earth so as to have breakthroughs that people can truly attest to as originating from God.
The second principle is that you must understand that everything that can be done and will ever be done about any situation you find yourself (or will ever find yourself in), has already been done by God. God is not just going to do something new now. Your life was predestined and God has already blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Regardless of what you are confronted with today, God has already provided a way of escape for you. It is not your prayer that makes God provide a way of escape but it is a divine provision made for you over 2000 years ago. The inheritance had long been transferred to you. You got this blessing after the resurrection of Jesus. You gained access to spiritual blessings in heavenly places. His divine power has already given you all things. Therefore, you need not show any sign of fear when faced with difficult circumstances. Shut fear out of your life because God has covered you and the issue has already been settled.
You must understand that any situation you find yourself is simply an opportunity for you to discover more of what God has done for you in life. Be thankful about it. This means that issues that seem difficult are simply channels that will open you up to more of God’s grace. By such situations, you will receive a greater supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ within your life. One main reason you are in such a demanding situation is that God wants to create something new in your life. This blessing will magnify Christ in your life on a greater level. You must not fret. Understand that He has blessed you with every spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus and no challenge of life can erase this.
Knowing this deeply in your heart, the next step is for you to go up to God and thank Him for the provision that He has made for you in that particular situation. The Bible says, “… for whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith(1John 5:40). Understand that faith is the voice of victory. It overcomes any circumstance! This means that when you work in faith you celebrate victory and that victory overcomes the world-challenges you are faced with. You do not have to struggle to get the victory. It is already yours. Acknowledge this victory in the face of contradictory circumstances and you will breakthrough. Face those situations that tell you that God has not yet settled your issues. Celebrate God’s victory over them. Continue to celebrate before God with the mindset that the issue has already been sorted out or settled. This is the expression of faith at work in you. Faith operates in your heart while doubt operates in your head. Usually when you operate in faith, the darts of doubt may still assault your head. But make sure that from your heart, you acknowledge the fact that God has given you victory and provided a way of escape. Boldly go before the throne of grace, thanking and worshipping God. Rejoice for His grace is sufficient for you!
You must never allow your faith and trust in God waver. Shun the fear of the unknown with the knowledge that you serve an Omniscient God. Stand firmly in His Word. Be assured that He is able to do what He has promised you irrespective of the situation you are faced with. And very soon, you will be glad you held on to Him.
