Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Facing Opposition

When facing opposition in your life, see it as an opportunity to grow in the things of God
God has called you to do a great work, but you should know that the enemy always comes to oppose what God has called you to do.

Whenever God opens a door for you their will always be opposition to keep you from going through, how you react will dictate what will happen in the situation.The key is obeying God's instructions.

The opposition can work in your favor if you will stand strong and firm in the things of God.
Hannah received a lot of opposition from Peninah, but she didn't give up, it caused her to become desperate and cry out to God, the prophet Samuel was born.

Many times people will come into your life to oppose you but that person can turn out to be the greatest blessing in your life, because adversity will drive you to God. Let your opposition strengthen you.

Joseph also faced opposition from his brothers as well, he made the mistake of sharing what God revealed to him, and his life was turned upside down.In the end the opposition resulted in his promotion in Egypt, he became second in command after Pharaoh.
You need to be careful about sharing God's revelation for your life, some people will oppose you just because God wants to bless you.

Do not hold bitterness against your opposer, turn a deaf ear to the negative things that people will say in order to keep your spirit from being contaminated. Love your enemies and do good to them that hate you.

You cannot afford to be distracted, don't let the schemes of the enemy get you off course, you don't have time to come down off the wall, its a ploy of the enemy to get you to stop working.
Let the opposition push you to strive for a greater level of excellence, it is your opportunity to become more intimate with God.

Ask God to help you to remain positive at all times.When you obey God in your opposition, you know that what the devil meant for evil God will turn it around for your good.

Amen! We have to press on no matter what happens in our lives good and bad! We have to keep striving for the mark which is Jesus Christ! God bless

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
