I found this quote in Africa, as I was going through some faith testing experiences:
"I asked the angel why there was no more faith and power in Israel. He said 'Ye let go of the arm of the Lord too soon. Press your petitions to the throne, and hold on by strong faith. The promises are sure.'"
Early Writings, Pg 73
So I hold on by strong faith. I press my petitions. I claim His WORD. It is ALL powerful...
Yes, I often forget that, but tonight, as I sit here reading through my old journal, I see that quote that I had jotted down during a time of darkness and confusion, and now I can look back to those days and know through experienece that:"...The promises are sure."
It's scary how our faith can shrink really fast. So let's not give an inch to unbelief, cause if we do, Satan takes one foot. We don't have time to 'let go of the arm of the Lord'... There is only time to hold on even harder. I for sure can say that I've had my share of setbacks, but faith is the victory.
Thanks God, for always being ready to stretch my faith. Thanks for bringing my attention to this quote. Thanks for being You.
