Be Unstoppable

Be Unstoppable

Deuteronomy 20:3 (The Amplified Bible)
And shall say to them, Hear, O Israel, you draw near this day to battle against your enemies. Let not your [minds and] hearts faint; fear not, and do not tremble or be terrified [and in dread] because of them.

Ponder This: God is not unfaithful, and He will not leave you.

Many people are not hungry for the Lord because they are full on other things. But when their flesh gets attacked, it fights, curses, gets depressed and gives up. Since they were not full on the Word, they had nothing to fight with. As we have begun this year, make an effort to be unstoppable in your faith and your commitment to the Lord.

Stop Being Stoppers.
In 1 Samuel 15, you can read the story of King Saul’s refusal to obey the Lord’s command of slaying all of the Amalekites. The Lord clearly told King Saul what to do, but He disobeyed. When Saul disobeyed God that time, it confirmed that he stopped trusting in the Lord. When we disobey the Lord, we doubt His power as the Almighty. Also, when we doubt the Lord, our faith leaks. On that day, when King Saul did not follow out the command of the Father, He regretted that He even made Saul King. Don’t ever stop believing God nor His Word.

Obedience is Better than Sacrifice.
Some Christians let their compassion for sinners override their obedience to God. There is a penalty for that (Genesis 2:18). Don’t stop listening to the Lord to please someone else. Only He knows our beginning and our end.

It’s Not Over Until You Win!
God can turn things around in your life no matter how bad it looks. He can arrange for a twenty –four hour miracle in your life, so be steady in your allegiance to Him (2 Kings 7:1).
Remain loyal to the Father because loyalty sticks with a person even when they don’t have anything to give. God just needs you to trust Him, and He will do everything else.

Maintain Your Commitment
A commitment is a declaration or a statement of something done by you. A commitment is a promise, pledge, a binder of your word. Whenever you make a commitment to something or someone, it should be carried out by your responsibility, so count the cost soberly.

Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 (The Amplified Bible)
When you vow a vow or make a pledge to God, do not put off paying it; for God has no pleasure in fools (those who witlessly mock Him). Pay what you vow. 5It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.

You will be challenged in your faith from time to time, but know that your heavenly Father is neither disloyal nor untrue. He will not leave you. Be unstoppable in your faith and your commitment to your Father who never fails!

Hebrews 10:35 (The Amplified Bible)
Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.
