“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)
Against all odds, when all hope had vanished… God steps in! The last hour, when man’s efforts have failed… God steps in! Just as the Israelites were backed up to the Red Sea, we are backed up against incredible hordes of wickedness that is being blatantly pressed against our face! Demons of hopelessness, despair, fear, and depression are crouching around us right now. Will we hold onto God, His faithfulness, His promises, even when it looks impossible? Jesus asked, “when He returns, will He find faith on earth?” Btw, in that same verse He said justice will come quickly (Luke 18:8). In other words, suddenly from hopelessness to breakthrough. But will you choose to stand and believe? Does your faith have substance?
Who/what are you hoping in? A man to be put back into his seat? A system to be fixed? A court judgment turning everything around? Or in the Glorious One?
Ask Him to show you any place you have wandered from a simple and pure faith in Him? Ask Him to grant you a grace to realign your hope in Him! Pray for your pastor to be strengthened today with faith. Ask that his hope would be reset upon Jesus Christ. Pray that across our city, faith would arise in this hour of great turmoil and oppression coming from the enemy hordes of hell, that the Church would awake up and declare Jesus, and Jesus alone is our answer! Yes, He will use people, but our hope is not in them, but in Him!
