When you begin to live a life of faith and to follow your dreams, adversity is sure to arise because for the first time you’re dangerous to the adversary. As a result of your commitment to follow God, two things will begin to happen immediately.
First, your faith will grow. A major part of following God is staying in His Word and listening to His voice. Doing these two things will undoubtedly create a spirit of faith within you that can overcome any opposing force that comes against you.
Second, the devil will come to steal away all that you have received from God and His Word. Your faith is a threat to the devil. He knows that if you are determined to walk in faith, then there is nothing he can do to stop you from receiving what God wants you to have.
When trouble arises, it is often tempting to draw back from what you are believing for. However, don’t give up. Don’t let that be an option. It might be tempting, but quitting will not bring to pass the things that you have dreamed about and prayed for. Faith conquers adversity every time.
I John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
Our faith is the victory that overcomes the world. That means that any attack that comes your way, you can overcome it when you walk in faith. There is simply nothing the devil can do to stop you. The faith of God in us is greater than anything Satan can throw at us!
