While praying for a friend this morning who is in a tough battle experiencing opposing circumstances to promised faith, I heard the Lord say “IN SPITE OF”. As I shared this my friend I felt the Lord say share this as an encouragement to my Beloved as many are experiencing this warfare.
Dictionary meaning of “inspite of”: in defiance to, regardless of, notwithstanding.
“In defiance to” really stood out to me. Defiance means: open resistance, and bold disobedience. Wow!
The enemy would want you to “concede” his victory, by “obeying” his resistance and believing the circumstances. But “inspite of” his tactics, “in spite” of his narrative, faith says to openly resist and boldly disobey the enemy’s plan by choosing to wholeheartedly concede to what God has said period.
Your promise will come forth “in spite of” what the enemy throws at you. Your promise will come forth “in spite of” what persecution and drama may be thrown at you. If you choose to continue believing what God has said, “in spite of” and in defiance to what the enemy is saying watch and see the impossible be made possible.
1 John 5:4-5 AMPC
“For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]?”
