‏Violent faith is a core course in the realization of destiny.

Everything in life is according to your faith.

Life will not give you what you deserve but what you demand for.

He touched their eyes and said, “Become what you believe.” It happened. They saw.
(Matt. 9:29 The Message Bible)

The life we are called to live is a life of abundance.

Where everything works—from career, marriage, academics, health to finances. That’s the God kind of Life.

Violent faith

This quality life cannot be delivered to you, if you don’t put up a violent fight of faith.

The violent takes it. You’ve got to storm what really belongs to you. This is not fleshy but of the Spirit.

Take charge,  you have been authorized.

Do you know how much power you have as a result of the redemption of Christ Jesus?

You aren’t ordinary. You are recreated to matter, to be heard, to be seen, to dominate and to shine.

Quality Life is not meant for the chicken-hearted. If you want your lion share, you must have a lion heart.

And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].
(Matt 11:11 Amp Version)

How sad most people have given up when they were at the edge of their breakthrough.

Every move of God is started first by us then completed by God.

Violent faith is man’s partnership with God to act.

He has a role to play and God plays His own part too.

If everything was up to God, he wouldn’t have given you a brain.

Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense? (James 2:17)

If your faith is violent, you will not just talk but act.

The kingdom of heaven is filled with everything that pertains to abundant life and Godliness but you’ve got to possess it.

You possess it through violent faith. Now the devil won’t let you have it. He hates you.

He is contesting every good thing that is right for you —your joy,marriage, peace, health, job, career, and more.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy
(John 10:10)

You’ve got to resist him. You do this through violent faith. (Eph 2:16)

The 3 Hebrew boys we able to display violent faith even in the midst of death.

When king Nebuchadnezzar made a decree that every kindred should bow and worship the graven image he created. The Hebrew boys refused vehemently.

Here was their response:

If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. (Dan 3:17-18).

That’s violent faith.

What then is violent faith?

It’s an unwavering confidence in God.

It’s an inward violence of the spirit that agrees with what God has said in his word and refuses to agree with anything contrary.

Violent faith

Violent Faith says “I believe what God says I have, and who he says I am, what he will do and what he says i can do through Christ”.

Violent faith says,  it’s God or God.

It’s not a thing of pride or boast but an assurance that God is too faithful to fail.

Understand that everything in life will be tested by how much faith you have in it.

That’s why the Lord keeps telling us to be strong. (Eph.  6:10)

And if you can’t handle life’s challenges, tests and trials, your strength is small.
(prov 24:18)

Characteristics of violent faith

1. It is confrontational.

It doesn’t take NO for an answer. Faith does not chicken out.

It’s full of courage on the God he or she carries.

For example, David, a shepherd boy ran towards Goliath who was defying the armies of the children of Israel. (1Sam. 17:47-50)

David told the giant that he will slay him because he looked down on the armies of the God of Israel. He did.

Violent faith is usually offensive.

2. It’s Vocal.

God is the possessor of heaven and earth. He has give you keys to reign in life. You unlock the force of faith when you voice out.

A closed mouth is a closed destiny. What you don’t want, you don’t watch.

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
(Mark 11:23).

3. It prays in the spirit with an unknown tongue. 

Glossolalia is praying in other tongues. It’s a prayer language of the regenerated spirit.

Once a man confesses Jesus as his Lord and savior.

The Holy Spirit comes to domicile himself in him enabling him to build his faith as he speaks in other tongues. (Jude 1:20)

Have you ever been confronted with a problem before? Try glossolalia.

Heaven  then comes to strengthen your mind.

How to build violent faith and win the battles of life. 

1. Be born again.

It all starts with God. Be born again. The human mind cannot comprehend the things of the spirit.

Faith is of the spirit. Except a man’s spirit is reborn, he is devoid of violent faith.

When a man is born again, the seed of violent faith is planted. (Rom.10:9-17)

2. Go for the Word.

Nothing shines truly like light. The  deeper your light, the deeper your faith.

If you want to build violent faith, you’ve got to eat the words by studying the word and meditation on the word.

When we study God’s word, we build spiritual muscles that enables our faith to quench the fiery darts of the devil.

Life’s battles come unannounced.

So, we are to prepare for life’s battles before they come.

Faith is the weapon. Bible study is the preparation to use the weapon. (Eph. 6:16)

God’s word is light. It carries the life of God. (2nd Peter 1:4)

It is what makes us enjoy the quality life we desire. (John 5:39)

The more you hear God’s word, the more your faith is built up.

Have a structured time for you to meditate on the Word of God daily with a jotter and concordance.

3. Listen to Testimonies.

Testimonies are boosters of faith.

Whenever we hear about how faithful Christians were able to surmount difficulties whether in the Bible or reality, it strengthens our faith in God.

(Heb. 4:11-40)

To build up your faith. Pay attention to the testimonies of other believers.

This will fire up your faith levels.

Surround yourself with people who have ferocious appetite for God’s word and people who have built their faith over time.

4. Maintain your confession. 

Your confession must be in consonance  with your actions.

You can’t say that you are healed by the stripes of Jesus and remain on that sick-bed.

Get up and do what you just said God said about you.

As you say it, you act it.

Violent Faith is now. It’s active and daring.

You may still feel the symptoms as you speak his Word.

However don’t stagger, maintain your ground. (Romans. 4: 20)

The very moment you said it, you were so. Don’t doubt.

Always understand that faith is not what you see, feel or hear.

You don’t analyze your condition with your physical senses.

The moment you said it. It as taken care of in the realm of the spirit.

It’s only a matter of time, it will be made visible in the realm of the physical.

5. Be Consistent and patient.

For your faith to be violent enough to deliver, you need an amount of patience. (Rome. 8:25)

God promised a son to Abram but he head to wait for 25 years to see it. {Heb. 6:15}

Joseph had a dream of greatness bit he had to go through a process.

If your faith must deliver, you’ve got to be persistent and patient. (Heb. 6:12, Heb. 10:36)

That’s why you cannot be shorter God’s word.

His word stores spiritual strength needed for patience in the trial of our faith.

If it was faith, it won’t fail.

To your success.
