Verse Of The Day : I will not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Psalms 118 : 17
LISTEN : Faith is an unstoppable force. Genuine faith can access anything God can give. God is unstoppable! In the same way, anyone who believes in Him and walk in faith is equally unstoppable. Faith can do the undoable, think the unthinkable, and achieve the impossible. It can “move mountains, divide rivers, bring water out of desert, and raise the dead.” (Matthew 21 : 21 , 22). To be truly unstoppable, you must cultivate the life of faith. There is something that God shares in common with a person of faith; and that is, the ability to overcome impossibilities. The Bible says, ” For with God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1 : 37). Similarly, God extends the same ability to anyone who has unwavering faith. The Bible says,” Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” (Mark 9 : 23). Those were the words of Jesus Christ to a man whose son was sick of incurable disease. Beloved, can you see how powerful faith is? Faith does not give up, does not surrender to intimidation, does not crawl in the face of trouble, but stand tall to confront the enemy. But when you fear and faint in trouble, your strength is small (Proverbs 24 : 10).
It is by this same force of faith that David declares himself unstoppable in the face of troubles. In spite of countless dangers that confronted him daily, he was strong and courageous by faith. When King Saul was after his life, and subsequently his own son Absalom when he (David) ascended the throne of Israel; his faith was firm in God all the same. At the height of his trials and persecution he said, “I will not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” (Psalms 118 : 17). He was speaking with the voice of faith, the voice of authority. He was not intimidated by threats to his life, but encouraged by faith in God. Friend, where is your faith? Like David, can you ignore the threats to your life and declare yourself unstoppable by the power of faith in God? Beloved, determine to grow in faith and no force can stop you. Be wise!
