Staying in Faith in Troubled Times – Br Jerry Savelle & Ps John Bendixen (WTB)
If you want things to change in your life, you’ve got to strike the ground for it. Receive the encouragement of the Lord, through Brother Jerry, about pending strikes.
There are a lot of things going on around us right now. There’s been a lot of trouble and negative things that are taking place. Many in the body of Christ have been suffering.
Lay hold upon the Prophetic Words spoken over 2021. Receive them by the Holy Spirit and dare to believe that it is going to come to pass in your life. Praise God in advance for it and continue to praise Him for it.
Meditate on these Scriptures:
6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: (1 Peter 1:6 KJV).
6 … though now for a little while, …. you may be distressed by trials and suffered temptations (1Peter 1:6 AMP).
16For which cause we faint not, but though out outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:16-17 KJV).
Things which are seen are temporal. (2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV).
2My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; 3knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4 KJV & AMPC; MSG).
4 …. and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4 KJV).
38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39But we are not of them draw back under perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. (Hebrews 10:38-39 KJV).
3Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in His eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God (Psalm 37:3 TPT).
20You planned evil against me but God used those same plans for my good (Genesis 50:20 MSG).
23Great is God’s faithfulness (Lamentations 3:23 KJV).
9Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant …. to thousand generations …. (Deuteronomy 7:9 KJV)
3Trust (lean on, rely on and be confident) in the Lord and do good: so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on his faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed). ⁴Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. ⁵Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass (Psalm 37:3-5 AMPC).
It has to be revelation to you; take the Bible’s Word for it!
No matter what you’re going through as a result of this crisis that the world is experiencing right now, don’t ever let it cause you to let go of your faith. God has ordained for you to live by faith. Faith is not a movement. To please God with faith for the rest of your life, make up your mind that you are never going to get off the Word of Faith. Do not allow yourself to become shipwrecked. Stay in faith, no matter what comes your way.
The proving of your faith brings endurance. Endurance is just being able to outlast the devil. What you are talking about will show what you really believe. You need to stay single-minded, you need to stay in faith (no double-mindedness). Make up your mind.
Brother Hagin used to be famous for saying, “If you are determined to stand forever, then it won’t take very long.” Most Christians are not determined to stand forever, but you can stand forever if you know it is temporal. Standing may last for years, but stay in faith, don’t let it steal your joy, continue to believe God.
Temporal means subject to change. If you can see it, feel it, perceive it through the five physical senses (therefore anything you might be going through) – it is subject to change.
It is temporal, seasonal, momentary, it is not going to last forever.
This revelation will cause you to win a lot more victories.
Patience means; never changing, regardless of the circumstances, it’s a powerful spiritual force, you cannot be defeated. Patience coupled together with faith is an unbeatable combination. Don’t let it steal your joy and don’t talk about it. It’s going to cause patience to join together with your faith.
Make the quality decision (one that you would stake your life on and not turn back) that you will not cast away your faith.
Decide that you will not turn back; you will not give up; you’re just going to stay in faith. No matter how bad the trouble might get, stay in the Word, stay close to God, and you’re going to keep on winning, praise God.
Tell the devil, what you meant for bad, God has turned it into good.
Our God is the faithful God; the Covenant Keeping God; the original Promise Keeper.
You can live and stake your life on His faithfulness, as sure as you need to eat.
God is the God of the turnaround. God is the faithful God. God is the good God. And whatever satan meant for bad, God is going to turn it into something good. Praise God, Soon, and very soon, you’re going to have another testimony of victory in Christ Jesus.
Write down, what it is that you need to be changed/that you need victory in your life for and begin to put the Word of God in your heart and find Scriptures. Sometimes the change has to happen in you first, because sometimes it’s the God inside of you that needs to be stronger than your thought life. You can’t just say it’s subject to change; you need to say what it’s changing to.
This ……. is subject to change. It’s not permanent. It’s not going to last forever. It’s not moving me. It’s not going to steal my joy. I am not going to cast away my faith. I’m going to stay in faith, because I know that I know that I know it is just a matter of time and God is going to turn it all around.
I’m not going to quit until I have victory. I am not a quitter, I do not quit. I don’t care how long it takes. I will stay faithful. I stay steady and I stay strong in the Word of God. I will not let my joy go. We will not let our joy go. Thank You, Lord that You are a faithful God and I can feed on Your faithfulness. I receive your faithfulness and I receive victories.
I draw a line right now and I’m wanting victory in …… (area of my life). Jesus, You are my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart, that You are on my side, and that I am a winner in every area of my life. I command areas of my life that are out of order, that I need victory in, I speak victory into it right now. I speak overcoming power into that situation right now. And I thank you for it, Lord, and I receive it now. In Jesus name. Hallelujah.
The enemy of God that has come against people’s physical bodies, their wellbeing, their health and their ability to stay the distance with their family, with God and the assignment that they’ve got in life. We’re believing God and we are actively pursuing God to bring that healing miracle to the people; to release that healing power to you.
Declare with Pastor John, God is going to begin to take the praying Church, the faithful Church, the steadfast Church, the Church that is ready to obey Him and He’s going to make us shine like the Morning Star, so that people are going to be attracted to the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ. God is about to release His Ecclesia on the earth. He’s about to release His Governing Church on the earth. He’s about to release His Authority Church into every sphere and area of life through us, and through our collectiveness.
Don’t be surprised when the Holy Spirit begins to show up and do extraordinary things in your life and in these services, and in Church. God is about to do extraordinary things. There is a new momentum, there’s a new shift of the Holy Spirit. We are right there on the front of it and we are going with it and we are going to go with the Holy Spirit everywhere, every place, every time, no matter what – we are going to flow with God.
