Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have
no pleasure in him.
Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have
no pleasure in him.
The Just shall live By faith (Believing) many believers stop in their tracks from doing what is right when things comes against them, when their circumstance change or things in their world get tough. Many draw back in fear in their walk with God and with others believers and give up or run the way of this world.
Have you been hurt by others?, is your circumstances tough? do you feel like giving up? are you discouraged in your walk? If this is you, then God wants you to know right now, you need to stop fearing and worrying, and start believing Him and trusting Him and put your expectation on Him.
If you are a born again believer filled with the spirit of the living God then you are Just and God says the Just, shall live by believing (faith) to live by believing is to literally take God at His word, and act upon that word, no matter what or who is coming against you.
God takes no pleasure in Us when we draw back, what is it to draw back basically it means to withdraw one’s self to be timid (fearful) to cover or shrink back in fear. To draw back describes a believer who through fear hesitates to declare openly who he or she is as believer to be the witness that God called them to be, and has stopped continuing in the truth through fear.
God is a faith God and God expects us to believe Him to believe His word to us, then He can go to work powerfully in our lives as we continue in the truth, applying it living it, and declaring it to others. when we practice the truths of God’s word and apply its principles, God will back His word up in our lives we will see the wonderful fruit His word to us can and will produce if we stay in faith (believing).
2 Corinthians 1:24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy:
for by faith ye stand.
If you are going to stand and be victorious then you need to believe God. You need to trust God’s word to you and act upon it, Ministers of the gospel have no authority of your faith but are helpers of your joy. Ministers should encourage you to believe God and go to Him, If you’re going to stand for God, then it is by believing that you will do so.
Anything we do that is not done by faith (believing) is sin (Romans 14:23) …..for whatsoever
is not of faith is sin. Sin, means to miss the mark.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a
Fear really is the believers enemy but God has not given us the spirit of fear, when we are
walking and being led by the spirit of God, fear will not be factor in our lives, we will be
walking in boldness and confidence having great trust in our God, we will see fruit and we
will be walking in victory no matter what comes against us we will be strong in the Lord and
in the power of His might we will be fellow shipping one with another with no divisions or
schisms within the body of believers, we will be advancing on the kingdom of darkness and
shining as lights in this world, we will be witness for the Lord Jesus Christ. being those
ambassador for God and Christ that we should be, we will be sharing our abundance so there
is no lack within the body of Christ. This is what true believing looks like from the scriptures,
Here is a record in the Bible that shows how the believers of the first century church grew in
unity and purpose, they had the same heart and love and they walked and lived in the Grace
of God, It show the heart of true believers looking to God following the examples of the
Leadership with respect towards one another and God was honoured by this and added many
more to the body of Christ as each individual move in faith and grace.
Acts 2:42-47Amplified Bible (AMP)
42 They were continually and faithfully devoting themselves to the instruction of the apostles, and to fellowship, to [a]eating meals together and to prayers.
43 A sense of awe was felt by [b]everyone, and many wonders and signs (attesting miracles) were taking place through the apostles.
44 And all those who had believed [in Jesus as Savior] [c]were together and had all things in common [considering their possessions to belong to the group as a whole].
45 And they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing the proceeds with all [the other believers], as anyone had need.
46 Day after day they met in the temple [area] continuing with one mind, and breaking bread in various private homes. They were eating their meals together with joy and generous hearts,
47 praising God continually, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved.
none of these believers had they own agenda or own interest at heart, but their hearts had been turned back to the living and true God they were thankful they was not complaining or moaning about anything, they honoured God in more ways than one way. they faith was sky high, so to speak, because of their hearts of thankfulness and gratitude to the Lord, God was able to much through the apostles, and was able to add to the church. There was no room for fear or drawing back they were able to advance with the things God had prepared for them to do, and they continued in the faith with great devotion to God and one another.
I so encourage you today to turn your hearts to the living and true God do the things He puts into your hearts to do that is being led by the spirit of God, the other choice is to draw back in fear, and live in defeat. There is a enemy that is out to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) he will put many things in your way, that is why we stay in faith we stay believing and trusting God above our negative circumstance. the devil will try and trick you through either the Pleasure of this world or pressures of this world. God does not want us to be ignorant of satans devices
2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
and God does not want us to be ignorant of His word to us and what he expects of us as believers.
Have a blessed day consider these truth and measure yourself against these great truths from God wisdom and scripture, and adjust where you need to adjust and watch God do amazing things in and through your life.
