Topic: Bulldog Faith (2)
Scripture: Matthew 15
Some years ago, I had a BULLDOG! It was feared by all other breeds of dogs I had because when they fight, the BULLDOG does not pull off her teeth, till I arrive at the “war scene” to stop their fights. In fact, one of my dogs was killed by a BULLDOG! Yes! BULLDOGS ARE FIGHT-TO- FINISH DOGS! They are RESOLUTE AND COURAGEOUS in battle or when they sense insecurity! Likewise, God wants you to live like a BULL DOG: NEVER QUITTING on the warfront! That was the story of the STUBBORN WOMAN in today’s scripture.
Vs. 23a says: “But He answered her not a word.” Wow! What do you do when God seems silent? She encountered many obstacles! The disciples were against her! The Jewish culture was against her; yet she refused to QUIT! Live like that! I call her the “BULLDOG WOMAN OF FAITH.” Why is it important to have a “bulldog faith”? Because on this planet, many things (people and forces – human and demonic) are working day and night to TAKE AWAY FROM YOU WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU. They don’t want your OPEN REWARD STORY to be heard! They hate to see you possess your possessions!
THE DEVIL will fight to the last drop of his “blood” to make sure that you don’t have and enjoy your OPEN REWARD this year. He makes you feel that God is SILENT and delaying you! For example, in the area of healing, he will tell you that you are still feeling sick and you are not healed. But note this: Faith Doesn’t Listen To Feelings. Faith Listens To The Word Of God. Faith Holds On To The Word. I’m Talking About Bulldog Faith. “Bulldog faith” never gives up!
As 2021 skips on like a ram on a hill, hold on to His Word, and hold out till you sing your victory song! This month is the ODM ANNUAL month of MERCY! It is a Month dedicated to do Charity work and to show Practical Love! This should be done throughout the month wherever you are! It should involve visiting Orphanages, Hospitals, Elderly people’s homes, etc.
1. Take Song 2: Draw me nearer…
2. In your own words, pray over today’s word as led.
3. I silence every deceptive voice working to STOP ME!
4. Father, I hold on to Your Word; I will not lose my miracle hour due to IMPATIENCE in Jesus name.
Thank God now for that OPEN REWARD testimony in advance – even if it seems as if nothing has changed. Lift up your voice and worship Him. Refuse to be moved by the physical. God’s Word says He has done it; go ahead and praise Him now for it.
Pray about today now.
