But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore , my beloved brethren be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:57-58
God's will also contains His promises to us. Healing, Restoration, Salvation are mentioned in one "breath" in Isaiah 53:4,5.
If one does not receive salvation, or healing we cannot say it was not God's will. His promises are yea and amen. One has to search his/her heart why not is received that what He has promised. If we waver or doubt we will sink as Peter did. We fail, but God never fails.
The secret in the life of the child of God is that ONE STANDS ON HIS PROMISES AND WALKS IN OBEDIENCE. We will go through trials and we are trained as we train our children. If we endure, God will be manifested in our lives, for His glory.
Faith is a very important key because it puts God's power into action on your behalf. Consider Daniel and the lions, Rahab's red rope, and David, when he killed Goliath. These are just some of the examples on how faith is put into action.
Faith is about seeing the unseen... bringing into existence that which is NOT... and something hoped for which materializes... This is my interpretation of Hebrew 11:1
WITHOUT FAITH we cannot please God, says the Scripture.
Having faith can be compared to that of a muscle. The more you exercise it and put it into action, the stronger it gets. Hence, the more effective you become in OVERCOMING.
The battlefield is here on earth, but the REWARD will be handed out when standing before His throne. Keep this in mind when your path is not as smooth as you wish.
HOLD ON, I PRAY and do not lose heart!
