– by Andreas Kyriacou
The will of a human being is the most powerful and influential tool our Creator has given us. Our will determines the quality and even the outcome of the life we lead. It also determines whether or not we will see the manifestation of God’s goodness and power demonstrated in our lives. “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” – Psalm 27:13
God’s grace provided all things that pertain to life and Godliness
Everything we will ever need in this life has already been provided. It has already been given. The way we receive them is through faith. Faith though cannot be exercised without our will. We either choose to believe God’s word or not to believe it. “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want… Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” – Psalm 23:1, 4
Requires exercising our will
There are things we need to receive and exercise our will for, and there are things we need to resist and exercise our will against. Faith requires the exercising of our will to operate – and it is the same with fear, it too requires the exercising of our will to operate.
The key to victory
We need to rise up in the strength of our will and resist the devil, and all that he stands for, and when we do that, we will find the strength of God working for us and through us to bring what we decide to come to pass. Waking up every morning and making the choice to walk by faith and to walk in love – regardless of our emotions, or the circumstances we find ourselves in – is the key to life and victory.
