BY FAITH I LIVE POWERFULLY, PRAYING THE WORD OF GOD

“I want to be a woman who overcomes obstacles by tackling them in faith instead of tiptoeing around them in fear” _ Renee Swope
The desire to live a supernatural life by faith should be in the heart of every woman of God. When we are saved we no longer live but Christ lives in us and the life we live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God (Gal 2:20). Faith is a gift bestowed on us (Ephe 2:8) when we come to the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The justified people of God live by faith (Rom 1:17) and anything that we do that does not proceed from faith is sin (Rom 14: 23). So everything we do as children of God is by faith in God since it requires faith to be both hearers and doers of the Word.

By faith I live

We the ones that believe that Jesus is the Son of God are overcomers and more than conquerors in Him for the victory belongs to Jesus Christ who reigns and has overcome the world (1 John 5:1-5). Daughters of the Kingdom of God are not moved by anything or anyone for we know and believe that Christ leads us in triumphal procession (2 Cor 2:14), no situation or soul is above The Great I Am in whom all things are possible and whose name rules and knows no bounds. Hebrews 11 teaches us about the significance of faith and the fruit of applying faith in all that we do for without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb 11:6). God is moved by faith and His power is released through it, we see this in the woman with the issue of blood who stood out in the midst of the crowds before Jesus simply because of her faith (Mark 5:25-34). Throughout scripture from the Old Testament to the New Testament we learn of people of God who by faith broke boundaries and lived beyond limitations. We should be mountain moving women that fear nothing but stand firm in faith looking to Jesus who is the author and perfector of our faith.

The only God whose power none can contend

In receiving the power of God in our lives it takes for us to come to the acknowledgement that He is God Almighty who holds the ultimate power over all and is able to do exceedingly and more abundantly than all that we could ask or imagine according to the power at work in us (Ephe 3:20). Our Lord Jesus performs unfathomable miracles and wonders and we His people stand in awe of His great majesty. The same resurrection power that rose Jesus from the dead lives in us (Rom 8:11). To experience this power in our lives as His beloved daughters we must pray that the eyes our hearts may be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which He has called us and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power towards us who believe (Eph 1:18-20).

Praying in the full armour of God

Be a prayerful woman that prays in the Spirit unceasingly in all occasions whatever battle comes your way. Knowing that you wrestle against the evil one in the spiritual realms not against flesh and blood and take up the whole armour of God that you may be able to take your stand against the devils schemes (Ephe 6:10-18).

Powerful woman, be a good soldier that is strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus and patiently endures all things (2 Tim 2:1).
