Have Strong Faith In God, I have confessed God’s Word. I’ve sown seeds. I’ve fasted. I’ve prayed. I’ve done everything! Why hasn’t my situation changed? Oh God, why?!!!” Many
people are agonized like this over their seeming
inability to change their situation. Yet, in Matthew
17:20, Jesus made this statement clear. He said
“When you have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
So, why do many of God’s people pray, fast, cry, sow seeds, confess Scriptures and still experience
frustrations and even tragedies in their finances,
health, jobs, marriages and businesses. Why do they
always end up questioning, “Oh God, why?”
Many who find themselves asking this kind of
question or who find themselves in such situations
have one major problem: They haven’t learnt how
to make their faith work.
Apart from their ignorance of how to put their
faith to work, some Christians find their faith coming
under attack and weakened by adverse
circumstances. Like Peter, they take their eyes off
the Word and gaze in fear at the boisterous winds
and billowing waves; they eventually begin to sink
when they should actually be walking on the water.
Jesus said in the last days men’s hearts shall fail
them for fear (Luke 21:26), yet this is not the portion
of the child of God. Proverbs 24:10 says, “If thou
faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” The
Living Bible translation of the same Scripture says,”You are a poor specimen if you can’t stand the
pressure of adversity,” letting us know it’s wrong for
our faith to fail or buckle under the pressure of
adversity.
Unfortunately, it is at such times of adversity that
some take their eyes off God’s Word. They neglect
their faith, allowing it to be stifled and rendered
ineffective by circumstances which the same faith
should have dominated. Any child of God can rise
above any situation, time and time again, if he’d only
learn how to make his faith work.
