“…he who did not spare His own son, but gave Him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? – Romans 8:32 (NIV)

Sometimes in the face of adversity, the devil tries to minister to us and make us believe that God is not willing to help us or answer our prayers. He takes advantage of the longevity of our challenges and tries to use it as proof to make us feel that God doesn’t want to help us, so most times, those who are not grounded in the faith, give in to such lies and end up going far from God. While others who are new in the faith, start harbouring doubts in their heart about the faithfulness of God. But I have news for you. The longevity of your situation does not mean God does not want to help you, the silence of God, does not mean God has turned His back on you. The severity of your challenges do not discredit the faithfulness of God. The bible says in our opening text that “…he who did not spare His own son, but gave Him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? – Romans 8:32 (NIV). Did you see that? If God in the process of trying to save man from eternal damnation, did not spare His only Son but gave Him up to be our substitute, what else can’t He do for you? If God could allow His only son, to go through humiliation and sufferings, just to make sure we are free from the stronghold of sin, what is that situation in your life that He cannot fix? What is that challenge that He cannot take care of?

          Therefore, I urge you toss aside the lies of the devil and see God for who He is. God has already done so much for you when He gave Jesus to take your place. Today by the reason of the finished works of Jesus, you are entitled to whatever it is you are asking God for. So keep pressing on in faith in your request because when you ask God for anything in the name of Jesus, He answers you (Mark 11:24). Refuse to quit in your fight of faith but be steadfast and courageous. Persist in your request and God in His infinite mercies will come through in your life. In the book of Luke 18:2-8, Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us an account of a woman who kept on going to a judge to help her get justice. At first the Judge didn’t want to listen to her, but when the woman persisted, he said to himself, even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, because this woman keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice. Now, Jesus Christ our Lord said, if the unjust judge could speak like this what about God our father? “…Will He not bring justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly…” (Luke 18:8 NIV). So refuse to harbour the wrong thoughts and be steadfast in your request to God. That challenge you are facing will cave in as long as you persist.  Halleluiah!


The severity of your challenges, does not discredit the faithfulness of God, if you call to Him persistently, He will answer!


Thank you, Heavenly father, for the assurance you give to me in your Word. Thank you for making me understand your willingness to help me. I will continue to press on in my fight of faith and as I do so, I am winning by the power of your Spirit in the name of Jesus. Amen!
