Jesus replied, “Let the faith of God be in you! – Mark 11:22 (TPT)
We see God in Isaiah 46:10 establishing the end from the beginning, and the Bible says God’s purposes shall be established. So when the beginning of things rolled out God knew exactly what was to happen and how it will all end, no matter what obstacle came, the fall of man, the rebellion of the chosen people, the death of Christ the Messiah, the persecution of the Church, God’s plan is still on track. God is not phased by anything, that’s why He has given us His Word that does not need to be altered per circumstance, His Word remains the same throughout the generations and what He has said is what will stand. The falleness of the World as we know it in these present times do not change the Word, COVID 19 hasn’t changed the Word, the down spiral of the global economy doesn’t change the Word. The Word stands!
This is faith unfolding before us who believe. The man at creation was just like God before the fall. When Christ rose from the dead, He restored all that had been lost and we became co-heirs with Him (Romans 8:17). But you see that was a part of the plan from the start, God was in it to inherit sons (Galatians 4:7) a royal priesthood, a chosen generation, a holy nation, people refined through the finished work of Christ and from the beginning He knew that this would be the outcome. He is not deterred by faithlessness in the nations. He told us already that there’d be a falling away and that those who leave our number were never of us. He knew, and knows all that, yet His plan is on course. Many are being made sons of God as they hear and believe the Word and are being changed.
Even when there was nothing God still believed that He would have us, Christ died before the foundation of the earth the Bible tells us (Revelations 13:8). So before anyone could repent, before anyone could believe God had a plan to inherit us, we would be put through the test, we’d have to pass the test and He made a way. This steadfastness is what He is calling us to. He is calling us to the very state of His own existence. The state of believing, a life of faith. God hasn’t waivered through circumstances, He sent Christ to die while we were intangible to Him, the Word He has spoken doesn’t change because it must come to pass, it will come to pass. We who have the Word are witnessing faith unfold, and what we see is telling us how we will overcome, if we do the same, if we have the faith of God.
The falleness of the World as we know it in these present times do not change the Word, COVID 19 hasn’t changed the Word, the down spiral of the global economy doesn’t change the Word. The Word stands!
