Hebrews 11:1-3 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen."
Your persistence to stand in faith and release the prophetic decrees of Heaven is far more powerful than you realize. Your faith is what conquers the kingdoms of this earth (the enemy); your faith is what pulls the promises and solutions of God into reality. Your faith is what releases the armies of Heaven into battle array—they do the fighting, and you go down in the history books of eternity as a mighty warrior, all because you stood your ground. Faith raises the dead; faith interjects the natural realm and commands it to bow at the name of Jesus. Faith is a defiant act. But it is what brings Heaven's promises into the earth.
What promises have you let go of that God is reminding you to pick up again and stand in defiant, bold, resilient faith with? Start striking the ground again (2 Kings 13:14-19). Remind yourself what God has spoken, what promises He has given you personally, and with regard to your calling in Christ—and begin waging war with your prophetic decrees again.
