Q: When you accepted Christ as your savior, when did you get saved?
A: The minute that you accepted, you received! It’s the same with healing, finances or whatever breakthrough you need. You received it right then! It may not manifest right away, but it’s already done! Speak it! See it with your spiritual eyes.
Full salvation includes peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility (peace or Shalom). When you accept Christ as Savior, you are instantly adopted into the family of God. A change takes place within you. The plan of salvation was offered; you took action by confessing with your mouth; and you received by faith.
Developing your faith is a process. You must resist worries, doubts, fears and unbelief.
2Cor.10:3-5-“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds): casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” James 4:7 -Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Learn to press through; don’t give in; don’t give up. Stay alert to the presence of God; confess the Word continuously to build your faith. Believe that God will enable you to walk in His will. Don’t get weary in well-doing! Reaping takes time. Focus on your faith daily. Don’t get discouraged!
Mark 4:27,28-“… and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”
Job 8:7-” though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.”
A good example: You have a stained t-shirt or garment. You soak it in detergent; you scrub the area where the stain is. The stain lightens up but it still remains. You allow it to soak for a longer time and when you return to it, the stain is gone!
Another example: when Jesus cursed the fig tree, is still looked the same; but on the next day, it had dried up from the root and was dead.
Building your faith is a process it takes time.
On another note, the leaves of the fig tree gave the impression that it bore fruit; but it was an imposter! Don’t be an imposter (having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof). You carry the Word of God within you! Let your light shine to those that are in darkness. We are the salt of the earth- pour it out! Live a lifestyle of faith. Confessing God’s word develops our faith. God is the antidote to fear.
“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, do not fear; I will help you.” (Is. 41:13)
