Sometimes, we do wonder when we see unbelievers succeeding and them some Christians are failing. Then we begin to ask, isn’t there anything good about being a Christian apart from only making heaven?
Well, yes there is. We are also supposed to enjoy ‘Heaven on Earth’ while we are here. I want you to know that you are blessed because you belong to Christ. You now belong to a wealthy family and you have a Father to whom the cattle upon a thousand hills are His (Ps 50:10). So why does it seems like some of us are still suffering?
Here’s my understanding: Firstly, the Bible says that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers (Eph 6:12). So, I believe one reason is because the devil does not want us to succeed. What should you do? Take up the Armour of God; sometimes, we tend to always run to Pastor when we have issues, and then Pastor has so many other people he is praying for too. I’m not saying it’s wrong – it’s always better to ask for help when u need it. What I’m saying is, what would you do the day there is no network to place that call through. I believe as Christians, we should submit to the Spirit in building up ourselves through the Word and prayers.
Having a good deposit of the Word and a good practise of prayers in you definitely helps you to stand in the face of opposition. Most Pastors would tell you that the secret to getting what you want is to remain with it until you see its physical manifestation. Meaning, you don’t stop believing, you don’t stop speaking. I believe this strong stance comes from a good knowledge of God’s Word, especially ones related to your situation and a good fuel from constant prayers, and most times fastings. Remember, Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by God’s Word.
Keep believing in God until you see the manifestation of what you want in your life.
Remain ever Blessed.
