We all are or should be standing in faith for something. Some of us are standing in faith for healing in our bodies, a new career, or simply a better situation. As we stand in faith, at times, it seems like the situation gets worse. Additional complications occur in our bodies, we lose the job we currently have while in faith for our new career, or our situation gets worse. What do we do when the situation gets worse?

We remain consistent. When things worsen, two opportunities are presented. We can quit and say this faith stuff doesn’t work or we can remain consistent in applying our faith for the desires we want to see. Worse situations will also tempt us to place limits on our faith. Initially, we stood in faith for a new car, but when too much time passed, we’ll settle for a used car. Be consistent.

Consistency is the key to our breakthrough. When we remain consistent in our faith and don’t waiver or doubt, our desires MUST manifest themselves. Our confidence in the manifestation of our desires is based on our confidence in God’s Word. God set His Word higher than anything else and He vowed that His Word will not return to Him without producing results (Ps. 138:2; Isa. 55:11). Based on His Word, it’s a matter of time before things change in our favor.

We may not have complications in our bodies or an uncomfortable situation, but we still have God’s unchanging Word and a mouth to declare what we desire to see. When things worsen, don’t quit, remain consistent.

Hebrews 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
