Chapter 3 – Live By Faith
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
As you trust God, know that you will continue to be inundated daily with copious challenges to your faith. In fact, now that you have accepted this assignment of reinvention, you can look for more trials to come your way. The enemy is not just going to sit there and allow you to go to your next level without a fight. He is already scheming.
Understand that your flesh will not take this change lightly either. The carnal nature tries to succeed in impeding the progress of the Spirit. We must throw down the gauntlet and take up the challenge to be anointed through the power of Jesus Christ. By faith our reinvention shall come to pass!
Successful results are truly a derivative of enduring faith. The power of the believer is in his or her ability to walk by faith. You have to put your faith in action every day.
Paul lets us know that there will be a fight of faith. He encourages the believer to fight the good fight of faith. If you are going to be successful you must win the fight. But this is not a fight of guns and knives but a fight in the mind and heart of the believer.
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12
It’s spiritual warfare!
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4
You must arm yourself with the “whole armor of God” – from the almighty arsenal of God. God will equip you to be successful. You must have a tenacious attitude before God and a sedulous spirit to bring His Will to pass. God is doing some incredible things in your life – you’ve just got to believe it!
During this “reinvention process” God will take you through some extreme faith challenges just to open a new door at the next level. Keep believing, walking and living by faith!
