The fiercest trial you are facing today has all the makings for the greatest testimony of your life! REJOICE! The power of Christ is IN YOU to break free. We are sons and daughters, NOT SLAVES! Not slaves to sin, sickness, lack, fear, or any other thing Jesus died to free us from. While those things come against us in this life, a greater power lives within us. Instead of looking at how big and impossible the situation appears to be, focus on the fact that you are not in bondage to the darkness produced by that storm.
This isn’t denying the existence of the storm, but it is denying it the storm of its power in your life. It is simply choosing not to be a slave to it in the realm of your mind and soul.
Taking your eyes off the storm and making the cross your focus takes purpose and an effort of faith, but it eventually strips the storm of any power in your life. Remember the power of CHRIST instead. Don’t deny it, ignore it, or underestimate it. After all, the very SAME SPIRIT THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD LIVES in you!
REJOICE before you see the answer manifest in the physical realm, EXPECT something good every single day, AND BELIEVE that the promises of God are for you, His child!
Look ahead to the day you are standing and sharing the greatest testimony of your life. SEE IT with the eyes of faith, STAND even when the battle is intense, and KNOW that the Victorious King has already gone before you. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, AND YOU ARE NOT DEFEATED!

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, CASTING DOWN ARGUMENTS AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, bringing EVERY THOUGHT into captivity to the obedience of Christ…- 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
