Hebrews 1:7 (KJV), “And of the angels he saith, who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.”

No matter what you may be going through at this very time in life, you must learn to press through to victory. How do you do that? Rightly, divide the Word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV), and allow the Lord to force out the situation or circumstance that you may be experiencing in your life (Deuteronomy 28:7 KJV). We have been given the authority to command the enemy to release hold of our lives (Luke 10:19, Mark 11:23, Matthew 18:19 KJV). Therefore, it’s by the power and authority of God's Word we speak: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might" (Ephesians 6:10 KJV).

We must learn to live in God's presence, listen to His voice and stay in the realm of faith in what he says about all things. Also, we must be open to His control and not by the circumstance or unbelief (now, pause to think on that). Know that the Lord has given us all we need to press through victoriously and to endure with determined faith. “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world, through lust” (2 Peter 1:3-4 KJV).

Walking by faith with confidence

In Christ, we have been empowered to walk by the faith, power, strength and the anointing of God’s mighty Word. Therefore, we are fortified and alerted by the Word. 1 John 5:14 (KJV) says, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us." So, we must have such faith in our confidence in what He says about our circumstances; we must take it literally to be true.

We must have a hunger for God, and we must never be satisfied with a mediocre position. Press on to the fullness of His Spirit. This is the foundation of our spiritual life, “which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all” (Ephesians 1:23 KJV); “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19).

When we learn to put all our situations in His hand, we can be assured that the matter will be taken care of by standing in His might. It is when we learn to surrender to God that He can be powerful in our lives. He wants to do things that we cannot comprehend. He wants us to see things that we cannot see in the natural. Then we will experience true strength to stand and win against the enemy.
