Faith stand still.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.James 1:6-7
It is no secret that the devil will try to knock you back from your stance of faith when you are facing a difficult challenge. However, in this moment when he is pushing his hardest you must be aware that you stand at a cross road. You have a crucial choice to make. You can give up, or you can stand your ground and boldly declare “I refuse to be moved off my position of faith, the word of God is true and I’m not going to back off”.
If you have had trouble standing firm in your faith against the pressure of the enemy in the pass, don’t feel condemned. Just receive this message as an encouragement from the lord to get back on your feet and then go for it again. To experience a breakthrough regarding a difficult situation or a trap that you’ve struggled with for too long, you must take a bold stance of faith and then stand still.
Yes, it may take time for your answer to manifest. Just because your request is in accordance with God’s will, the answer doesn’t always come to pass quickly or without a hitch. There’s a devil out there that doesn’t want you to experience God’s will for your life. You also have your won flesh to deal with, and flesh loves comfort, it does not like a challenge. Your faith may need to grow. God wants you to come to a higher level in the process of receiving the answer to your prayer.
Faith knows what is wants. It doesn’t vacillate. It never moves. Faith stands still in one spot, so make you bold confession of faith. God, this is what I want. This is your will for my life, and I’m not moving until I receive the fulfilment of it.
In James 1:6 James described the unwavering attitude a believer must have when he asks God for something in faith. It says, but let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
First of all, James told us we must ask. The word ask is the Greek word aiteo, which means to be firm or adamant in requesting assistance to meet tangible needs, such as food shelter, money, and so forth. The petitioner is so sure that his request is correct that he asks boldly and with an expectation to receive what he is firmly requesting. This depicts a person who speaks up, speaks out, and prays bolding and authoritatively.
The second thing James said that we must ask in faith. In other words, this person is praying for a stable, immovable, decided position. He knows what he wants and isn’t going to budge. Faith knows what it wants, and faith stand still. Faith doesn’t waver.
My Prayer today
Father today I focus, and boldly refuse to move from my stand in faith. I will let patience have its perfect work, and I do not vacillate. I am not tossed like a wave to and fro, but I stand firm in one spot, fixed, immovable, and determined. I am confident that I will see what I have believed because my faith is based upon God’s word, and His word is His will. Therefore, this day I confess that the will of God shall be manifested in my life.
I declare this by faith in Jesus name.
Love, Pastor Cindy.
