One of the biggest things the enemy tries to get us to do is to quit believing and standing on God’s Word. When tough times come, it’s easy to look at the outward circumstances and question if God is really there for you and if He will work all things out for your good. Can I tell you that God tells us when we have done all that we can to stand - keep standing (Ephesians 6:13). Why? Because we are in the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12) and the enemy wants to steal our faith any chance he can get because He is a thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) If the enemy can steal our faith, then he can prolong the blessing of God or the promise from coming to pass in your life.
God only operates by faith (Hebrews 11:6), and His ministering angels only operate by His word (Psalm 103:20) and because of this, He can only operate in your life when you have the faith to believe in Him and what His Word says about your situation. Despite what the circumstances look like, believe that they are only temporary (2 Corinthians 4:17) and God will move in your life when you CHOOSE to stand on His Word and trust that God is faithful to perform in your life!
