Radical Faith – Taking it by force
No one ever comes into a place of overflow and abundance without engaging the force of radical faith. Somebody who is radical is someone who refuses to take no for an answer. He refuses to be refused and denies to be denied. His or her heart is set, his face is set like a flint and he refuses to settle for anything less that Gods best. The bible records that “since the days of john the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force.” – Mathew 11:12.The enemy doesn’t sit back passively and allow you to access your overflow without a fight. One preacher said that satan is not a gentleman. He doesn’t release your stuff just because you requested it. He releases it because you violently take what belongs to you.When you try to access your overflow on a platform of softness and negotiation with the enemy, you are in for a big surprise because you will not get it. As the children of Israel had to get in and violently evict the squatters that were sitting on their promised land, so you have to rise up and violently take what God has promised you. The bible says that we do not wage war against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers. – Ephesians 6:12. The moment you arise valiantly, you will conquer victoriously and rejoice jubilantly.
The reason why you need to be radical is because the host of heaven are backing you up. Like Elisha on the mountain surrounded by the chariots of your enemy the devil, still those who are for you are greater than those that are against you. That fact should strengthen your resolve and refire your faith so that you can know that you are not fighting for victory, you are fighting in victory. Let a radical faith spring in your heart that will say, I will not relent until I get what is filly mine in Christ. Rise up with bold prayers, bold confessions and bold steps and receive all that God has in store for you. Say to yourself “My business will not crawl when I have Christ in my side, my career will not stagnate when Christ is in me. I’m rising up….i have what it takes. I’m getting radical because radical times call for radical faith if we are to command radical overflow.
A Scripture to Remember.
“Fight the good fight of faith” – 1st Timothy 6:12.
An assignment to pray about and work through.
Intimidation produces stagnation. Boldly pray against the spirit of fear and ask the Holy spirit to give you holy boldness to stand tall, stand tall and firm in Gods promises with relentless resolve..
