There are times in life where nothing else can change a situation other than a challenge. For example, how many times does a person feel sick, and they are told to stay on bed rest, but the longer they stay on bed rest, the worst they feel. Until one day, they get angry against the situation and decide to get up and get busy. When they go against the desire to stay on the bed, they start to feel better. They overcome the flu or whatever sickness.
The power inside that makes a person challenge in that way is faith. And that truth is, you need a showdown of faith. What I mean is that, you need to challenge the problem and overcome it. It’s like the Apostle Paul said;
And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
1 Corinthians 2:4
You have been to church and you know the Bible, but what you need is to challenge your problematic situation through what is written in God’s Word and determine a change in your life.
Let me make it simple… instead of doing what seems humanly right, be bold enough to do what seems crazy, but matches with the Word of God and see how it works in your life. God wants you to have more confidence in Him, than you have in man, and He will manifest His power on your behalf. The challenge is what provokes results.
And that is why again I say… you need a Showdown of Faith.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
