Three Enemies of Faith

One of my favorite scriptures is found in Hebrews 11:6.  “Without Faith it is impossible to please Him; for he who comes to God must first believe that HE IS GOD and that HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM!” I recently heard a profound statement that brought such revelation.

“The Spirit –realm is reality.”

 So often in life, we receive a promise from the Lord.  They arrive in many different ways: when we read the Bible, in quiet time with the Lord as He quietly speaks to our spirits, or even through a word of prophecy spoken from another member in the body of Christ.  Many times, after we have received the promise as our own and begin the journey to fulfillment, LIFE and other VOICES begin to speak against our promise, declaring it impossible.  I have learned to live by “what saith the Lord” and not by “what saith Jeneen, or what saith my emotions, or what saith my circumstances, or even by what my eyes are beholding in this tangible, natural realm.”  All of these can be deceiving if we rely on their declaration instead of the voice of Almighty God.  Rarely, will the promise of God look anything like your present circumstances.  Thus, the very reason God commanded us to, “Walk by faith and not by sight.” 

Scripture clearly points out three enemies of Faith:

1.     Unbelief- God gave Abraham the promise that he would become the father of many nations, but in the natural realm there was just one problem.  His age!  Abraham was one hundred years old and past the age of producing even one child, let alone a nation of children. Nevertheless, I love what Romans 4:20-21 says, “Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in his faith, giving glory to God and being fully persuaded that what God promised, He was fully able to perform.”   Like us, Abraham had a choice to believe or not believe!  Never look to your circumstances for assurance of the promise!  Just believe God!

2.     {C}Wavering Faith- James 1:6-8 warns, “For He that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. Let not this man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Like a wave, wavering faith is driven by belief one day and doubt the next.  Wavering faith believes God until the battle gets tough.  It will believe God until outside voices and circumstances drown out truth.  Wavering faith rises high and falls hard. The promise will never be fulfilled through wavering faith.


3. Faith without endurance- You may not suffer with unbelief or wavering faith, but there is yet another enemy lurking in our midst.  Trusting in God’s timing is a crucial element to receiving the promise.  Promises are assigned to seasons in your life. Sometimes, God gives you a promise in one season that is meant to be fulfilled in another. Often, when the promise is not fulfilled in "our proper timing" we give up and when we give up, we forfeit the promise. Hebrews 10:35-36, “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense of reward. For you have need of patience(endurance); that after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.”


2 Peter 3:9 promises, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise as some consider slackness to be...

Habakkuk 2:3, “Slowly, steadily, surely the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.  If it seems slow, wait patiently.  For it will surely come.  It will not be delayed.”

____________________________________________________________________________ 

  God longs to fulfill His promises to you and as His beloved children we must understand this is a partnership.  We have a part to play.  We have to be relentlessly proactive in our faith.  Never give up.  Keep pressing.  Continue to believe and proclaim what God promised you.  You will see it come to pass if you do not doubt, waver or give up.  

 

Blessings,

Jeneen

Galatians 3:6... "Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness." One thing that God has taught me in the last 2 years is that He isn't looking down at me trying to nitpick every wrong thing I do. He is looking for the times I believe Him. Not just believe IN Him but believe Him. Every time I choose to believe Him, he credits me with righteousness. And in that belief, that faith, I please Him. And knowing that I can please God fills me to overflowing. Thank you for sharing this blog today, Jeneen. It served as a wonderful reminder to me to trust God for everything.

For it will surely come, not delayed. But in due season :-)
