For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’- Rom. 1:17
Faith is the substance, the confidence, assurance of the present reality of what we hope for. It rests on the finished work of Jesus on the cross and sees the unseen in the natural. By faith, we see, speak, and seize God’s will. Faith works!
As we seek God for direction in His Word, He highlights His promises for us to stand on. We speak them forth with confidence. We stand on what the Word of God says, regardless of any other word our natural ears might hear. By faith, we proclaim the truth and see it rebuke the lies instantly. The more we believe the promises of God in our hearts, the more we can declare them to the darkness that occupies our surroundings.
We stand until our circumstances align with the promises of God. While we are waiting for the manifestation of the promises of God, we rest in Him; praise and worship Him! By faith, we seize what Christ has already accomplished, and lay hold of His victory. Overcomers in any situation. We lay hold of what God has laid hold of us for, aligning our will with His. We see, say and seize, from glory to glory!

But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. – Is. 40:31
For the eagles, a storm is an opportunity to soar. Eagles can catch the wind of any raging storm and rise above it. They use the air pressure to ascend higher as they lock their wings and rest, weathering the storm from a place above it. God uses the pressures in our lives to take us higher in our faith, soaring like an eagle.
As we grow in Christ, we learn we can depend on Him in all circumstances. We know we can wait on God. To wait upon the Lord is to look eagerly for Him, expecting His manifestation with assurance. It’s as we do so that we mount up with wings like eagles. We soar higher than we did in the past. In the waiting, we receive more of His anointing.
In whatever storm we are facing, we receive the strength of the Lord. We soar above the dark clouds. As we wait upon the Lord, the weight of His glory increases. The rest and peace we find in Him is unexplainable. He connects us with other eagles for encouragement and edification. While we seek those things that are above, we conquer those things that are beneath. In Him, we abide, rest and are victorious, from glory to glory!

Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.- Ps. 62:8
One tactic of our adversary is to hinder us from seeking the Lord in our daily steps. We might get too busy or distracted and only turn to the Lord after our endeavors, instead of before. Taking one moment, even a few seconds, to yield to the presence and power of the Lord before we do things makes way for His ability to flow through us.
In the natural, we do not have time for that extra moment, but in the spirit it is necessary. As soon as we take that moment, time is extended. God redeems our time and enables us to complete our tasks with grace. Just one moment before we speak, proceed to an important task, or confront a conflict.
Wherever we are, right now, let’s take that moment. Lord, thank you for your presence. I yield to your wisdom, ability, and grace. Help me fully trust you. I receive your love, strength and peace, as I walk with you, from glory to glory!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. – Phil. 4:8
Our hearts are like gardens, and our thoughts are like seeds. Seeds of love, hope, and faith produce beautiful flowers in our lives. Seeds of hate, despair, and fear yield weeds and thorns. The evil seeds can give our adversary a foothold and then become strongholds to hinder the growth of the seeds of life.
Over thinking about wrong things allows weeds to grow. Thinking about good things produces flowers of peace, hope, and faith. As we exercise our thoughts relating to who God is and who we are in Him, we conquer strongholds. With God’s help, we can meditate on these things: what is worthy of respect, lovely; admirable and of excellent report.
This mind exercise is a process. We practice reminding ourselves of anything worthy of praise! We meditate, center our thoughts, and focus on these truths. Our thoughts are innumerable, so we cannot catch them all, but by God’s amazing grace, our ability to take them captive improves. God gives increase to His Word and we walk in the fruits of the good seeds, from glory to glory!

Then Elijah said to Ahab, ‘Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.’- 1 Kings 18:41
Elijah did not just hear it was going to rain, but heard the abundance of it. When we believe the Word of God, we too, by faith, can expect the abundance of the manifestation of His promises. When what we expect does not materialize, we battle doubt and unbelief.
Have disappointments diminished the fervency of our prayers? Do we hesitate to still believe God for something because it is taking longer than we expected? Do we still believe, but for only a little result rather than for all the manifestation? We must still believe God has His best for us, even we question our hearing of faith. God is increasing our hearing for the sound of abundance, for such a time as this!
Our prayers can remain fervent because they indeed avail much for God’s will to be done! The Word of God that we hear, we can surely stand upon as we pray and never give up. We can count on the abundance of what He promises in His Word. Our expectations can be for much more than what we can ask or even think. We stand by faith, expecting God’s best, from glory to glory!
