Have you ever thought of God as ‘my Rock’? Have you ever held a rock in your hands? How did it feel like? Were you able to crush it?
Look at how huge and dominating the mountains are. What do you think can ever move them? Who can lift them from where they are to another place? Who can lift them on his shoulders? Who has the strength to lift them?
Can all the water of the seas move any mountain? As you digest these questions, think of God.
An attribute unique to God is that He is a rock – unbreakable, untouchable, unmovable, unshakeable. No one can claim that he can touch God to the point of moving, shaking, or breaking Him. That is how strong your God is.
A mountain is a huge rock that towers high over the land and it cannot be moved. That’s how God towers over you when he protects you. He doesn’t move but stays right there in front of you. He doesn’t move
“The Lord also will be a refuge and a stronghold for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble;” Psalm 9:9 AMP.
It takes a great amount of firepower to blast a mountain apart. No power both on earth and in heaven can confront God and break Him. So when He stands in front of you, there’s an assurance that He won’t be shaken or destroyed.
“And those who know Your name (who have experienced Your precious mercy) will put their confident trust in You, For You, O Lord have not abandoned those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10
When you call, believe, and see Him as your Rock, nothing can shake, break, touch or move you because you are right behind God. He protects you from any harm or danger. Whatever cannot touch Him cannot reach you. He becomes a shield for you, covering all around you.
When tough situations come your way hang tight to Him, say to yourself that the Lord is your Rock, He is Jehovah Tsuri.
“The Lord is my rock, my place of safety, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength. The Lord is my high tower and my place of safety. The Lord saves me from those who want to harm me.” 2 Samuel 22: 2-4 ICB.
Prayer: I bless You my Rock and Shield. Thank You Jehovah Tsuri for always being who You are for me. Glory be unto Your name, in Jesus name. Amen.
The messageof faith is fast giving way to other popular messages especially now. I think in my own opinion that we heard more ‘how to live by faith’ messages than we do now, yet, it comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
As a single lady when I was in the university, we were taught how to trust and believe God for stuff. Then we listened to Papa Kenneth Hagin, the Copelands, Creflo and Taffi Dollars, Jerry Savel, Jesse Duplantis, Bishop Oyedepo, and a host of others. We saw living by faith as a necessity and we had no options but to do so.
It seems to me that as we got married and life began to happen to us, we allowed the message of faith to slip by. We are now working-class people, so we don’t believe God for stuff as much as we did before. We simply wait for the next paycheck.
When we feel symptoms in our bodies, we simply notify our HMO, and we get free access to health care. We even feel it is our right to use the hospital since it is deducted from our salaries. The problem is that we are gradually losing our cutting edge in exercising our faith.
As believers, whether we are singles or working-class we need to exercise our faith daily.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1:17 KJV
To live a righteous life, to live victorious over fear, diseases, attacks of the enemy and much more, requires faith.
We can never graduate from the school of faith. That is how we live. That is how we exist. That is how we get answers to our prayers. There are some issues that will happen in marriage that your way to experience victory will be only when you learn to exercise it.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Mark 11:23 KJV
Let’s look at this scripture well. We will see that process. Whether you are believing God for babies, contract, prosperity, or general wellbeing, the process of faith must be completed.
Let me analyse the process here.
1. You must speak to your mountain. Don’t speak about it, speak to it. Address it because you have authority.
2. Speak and give direction to the mountain.
3. Don’t allow doubt in your heart.
4. Believe that you have what you SAY.
5. Then, You will have what you say.
6. Thank God in advance. The faith process is not complete until you thank God by faith for your answers.
The big question is, what are you saying about the situation you are trusting God to see changes? Do you pray, declare God’s word, and then begin to worry?
It’s time as believers to begin to exercise our faith against the attacks of the enemy. Any issue the enemy brings our way is an attack on it. We can deal with the enemy by exercising it.
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16 KJV
With our shield of faith, we quench every fiery darts the wicked one throws at us.
When we have issues in our marriage, issues with our spouse, our in-laws, it is not the person that is the issue. It is the wicked one stirring up issues to steal your joy, peace, prosperity, and health. Rise up in the authority of the Lord and hold up the shield of faith against the fiery darts of the wicked one.
God bless your marriage in Jesus name.
