The God-kind of faith declares the outcome. God’s word or promise to you will declare the outcome and God expects you to declare the same in the same spirit of faith. In addition to declaring the outcome, God expects us to work this process using the same principle until you possess the declared outcome. Once you have God’s promise on a matter, don’t stop confessing it, because God’s word will never fall to the ground.
God told the children of Israel the outcome: the promise land flowing with milk and honey, where they would eat bread without scarceness. He didn’t tell them about the giants in the land because the giants were not a factor in possessing the land. As far as God was concerned, the giants couldn’t stop them. In the fulfilment of the promise of God for you, the devil is not your problem.
There is nowhere in the entire Bible where it is recorded that the devil is the problem of God’s people. Rather the Bible says in Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge.” In John 8:32 Jesus said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” The devil is a problem to people who are not saved while the believer’s problem is IGNORANCE. Overcome these three: ignorance of the word of God, ignorance of the principles of God and ignorance of the way God operates and there is no force on earth or in hell that can stop you.
Lord, I stand on your promises for me and I reject the curse of ignorance today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
