What to do When Faith is Failing (20 Great Keys) - 3



The Life of Faith

One unique virtue that separates us from other creations is our faith. Faith magnetizes creation. It makes us unstoppable. Faith is like a seed. We plant it in a fertile soil. After planting the seed of faith, we supply adequate water and make sure the seed receives sunlight.


From there, we protect the seed from enemies. With the seed of faith, we open the portal for God’s creation to defend us and offend our enemies. Faith creates a mysterious aura around us. With this aura, we become irresistible, compatible, and accessible to the holy forces.


With the virtue of faith, we become dangerous to the evil forces. The creation of God feels and sees our faith. With this uncommon virtue (faith), we become untouchable and unconquerable. I hope you know about the faith of Christ Jesus. Nobody could stop Christ Jesus when he disorganized the ungodly activities in the temple.


And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

Matthew 21:12-14 KJV

One thing I have realized about faith is that it empowers us to do the impossible. Most of the things I have done in the ministry came through faith. I evangelize by faith. I intercede by faith. I write books and articles by faith.


I engage in ministerial activities by faith. Who am I to write books and articles for others to read? However, faith empowers me to write. By God’s grace, I receive emails and messages from several people thanking me for how the books have blessed their lives.


I give glory to the King of Kings and Lords for His blessings upon my life. If you want to make a significant impact, deploy the key of faith. Also, understand that faith is a weapon. We use this weapon to dominate the wickedness of the wicked and execute uncommon tasks.



The weapon of faith

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

1 Peter 5:8-9 KJV

Apostle Peter states that we must oppose the devil with faith. We must stand against the devil and his minions with the weapon of faith because these forces are extremely rebellious. Anytime we walk and live in unbelief (faithlessness), the devil and his cohorts get an advantage over us. We need the weapon of faith to resist their manipulations. We need the shield of faith to defend ourselves against his deceptions.


Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.


Ephesians 6:16 KJV

Apostle Paul would not have instructed us to take the shield of faith if we were not engaged in a spiritual battle. Like a soldier, he puts on a bulletproof to protect himself against a gunshot.


In the same way, we must block the arrows of the enemy with our faith. Faith is a shield and a breastplate in the spiritual realm. Faith guards us when we walk through the valley of the shadows of death. Do not ignore the shield of faith because you will become vulnerable in the dark season. Oppose, overturn, and overtake the opposer (the devil) with faith!



The fight for faith

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

1 Timothy 1:18-19 KJV

Have you realized that life is a battle? Failure to fight and defend your territory (assets) can make the enemy possess your possession. This is one reason Apostle Paul commands us to fight good warfare.


There is good warfare and destructive warfare. For instance, fighting and killing your neighbor because a wicked political leader wants it is bad warfare. As we all know, most political leaders want power, fame, and wealth.


If the leader is sincere, godly, and selfless, and you discern that the leader wants the growth of the citizens and economy, you can fight for such a leader. However, fighting because the leader has given and promised you money and other temporal assets is bad warfare.


Most often, leaders who bribe people to get and sustain power are not sincere. Real leaders empower their followers to fight for a good course. We can fight to demote a wicked leader. We must fight a good warfare, not a bad warfare.


A season will come when people will force us to deny our faith in Christ Jesus. This is when we must stand our ground and fight the good fight of faith. There will come a time when people will be hostile to us because of the gospel.


We must stand our ground and move through the storms. Some people will hate and oppose us because of Christ Jesus. We must stand our ground and fight good warfare. This reminds me of a man who vehemently opposed me in one of my evangelism activities.


The man insisted that I should not preach in the area where he lived. However, I saw that numerous people in that area needed the gospel! I stood my ground! I did not give up preaching in that area!


I persisted in winning souls for Christ Jesus in that area. The man saw my boldness, persistence, and faith and stopped abusing me. As I write this article, I can preach in that area without interruption.


That is how we must fight the good fight of faith. Remember, I dealt with the powers in that area with strategic and tactical prayers. I knew the man possessed another spirit, so I commanded that the power of the Holy Spirit dominate that area.


When I fought the battle on my knees, the evil spirit manipulating the man could not oppose me again. There will come a time when people will oppose you because you want to start a ministry. Some wicked people will do everything in their power to prevent you from fulfilling the call of God.


However, you must fight the good fight of faith. Do you remember the case of Nehemiah? Sanballat and Tobiah opposed Nehemiah because he wanted to free the people of God and build the broken walls.


Nehemiah did not give. He strategized, persisted, and executed the divine assignment despite the opposition. If God has called you to start a ministry and some wicked and unreasonable people oppose you, wage good warfare.


I mean, fight in the spiritual realm. When you win the battle in the spiritual realm, the battle will become easier in the physical realm. Sometimes, you must align with other Christian believers to wage good warfare.


As far as darkness exists, we must fight the good fight of faith. It is a continuous battle. Christ Jesus has won the battle. However, we must use the authority Christ Jesus has invested in us to dominate the evil forces. Until we fight, we will not walk in victory! The enemy does not give up without a fight!


Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV

  • Are you fighting the good fight of faith?
  • Are you expecting the Holy Spirit to fight the battle you are supposed to fight?
  • Are you using the power (authority) Christ Jesus has invested in you?


I encourage you to download and read my series of books on the enemy for more profound revelations. Freely download the books on my blog and youtube channel. Meditate on these Holy Scriptures for more profound revelations.


I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

2 Timothy 4:7-8 KJV



Faith, the master key to walk and live with the Holy Spirit

…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV

If you analyze the above holy texts, you can see the power of faith. Apostle Paul states that we cannot entirely gratify God (the Holy Spirit) without faith. Let me use this analogy to explain this truth.


In the house, your father becomes happy when Christian music is playing. Another thing that makes your father happy is that he enjoys vegetable stew. You also realize that whenever Christian music plays in a relaxed mode, he gives whatever you ask.


In this way, you can please your father by playing Christian music anytime he is in the house. You can become one with your father by preparing vegetable stew for him—another example to explain Hebrews chapter eleven verse six.


You realize that anytime you buy your mother gifts and engage her with Christian movies, she becomes happy. With this wisdom, you can make your mother happy by buying gifts and engaging her with Christian movies.


In the same way, we can make God happy with our faith! I explained faith in article one. Kindly read that article and download my book, How to Unlock the Gate of Faith, for more profound revelations.


When we seek God with all our hearts and trust him with our hearts, mind, and energy, we become one with the Holy Spirit. Like the parents, Christian music, gifts, vegetable stew, and Christian movies unlock their hearts.


In the same way, we unlock the heart of God and connect with the Holy Spirit by faith! Nothing can make “our parents” happy except Christian movies, gifts, and Christian videos. In the same way, the key virtue that makes the Holy Spirit happy is faith.


It takes faith to unlock the heart of the Holy Spirit! Do you remember the two men who broke through the ceiling with the paralyzed man? The first thing Christ Jesus saw was their faith! When Christ Jesus saw their faith, he forgave their sin and healed the paralyzed man!


And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.

And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.

And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.

Luke 5:17-26 KJV

I hope you have read the above Holy Scriptures. The experience exhibited should make you understand the power of faith. Giving tithes, offering, and serving the Kingdom of God without faith is vain in God’s sight.


The Holy Spirit wants to see and feel your faith. Like water, we can see and feel it. The Holy Spirit and the spiritual forces see and feel our faith! Faith is one of the master keys (currencies) in the spiritual realm.

Faith, the master key to overcome the world

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:4-5 KJV

Have you realized that the world is full of wickedness, injustice, and pain? We hear of wars around the world. On the radio, television, and internet, countries rise against countries and “neighbors” fighting each other.


Corrupt leaders constantly loot the country's assets. Thousands of innocent people die of hunger and thirst every day because of corruption. Diseases dominate several parts of the world because of wickedness.


Thousands of people die of suicide, diseases, fear, and depression because of evil. Most rich people abuse the poor—the poor struggle to feed themselves and their families. Economic, social, psychological, emotional, technological, physical, and spiritual abuse rises each day.


Criminal activities increase daily because of resource mismanagement and corruption. The prison is constantly becoming choked because of crime. Prices of goods and services rise continually. Depreciation of the currency increases each day.


The rich take advantage of the poor. Wicked people hide the country's money and resources in private banks and places for their personal use. The cost of living in most countries is high because of corruption.


Corrupt leaders squander funds that are supposed to be used to build projects, leading to economic crises, poverty, and conflict. Each day has special news! Living in such a world can make us fearful, depressed, bitter, and suicidal.


However, with the key of faith, we can overcome the storms and darkness of this world. I recently wrote a book titled The Mysteries of Evil, which is subtitled Understanding the System of Darkness.


I encourage you to download and read that book for more profound revelations. If you want to walk and live in victory, put on the breastplate and shield of faith. With faith, you press through the darkness.


With faith, the darkness of this world will not dominate you. Your faith in Christ Jesus will give you hope. I mean the hope of an everlasting home (Heaven) where suffering and wickedness are absent. With the shield and breastplate of faith, nothing can move you because Christ Jesus is greater than the darkness in this world. Meditate on these Holy Scriptures.


Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1 John 4:4 KJV

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33 KJV

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:4-5 KJV



The engine of faith

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

Galatians 5:6 KJV

As stated, faith is vital in our vicissitude of life. However, faith can fail without the love of Christ Jesus (the Holy Spirit) abiding in our hearts. The gift of faith can lift us to a certain height. However, it takes the oil of love to keep faith alive.


Our love for God and humankind will keep our faith working. Grow in the love of God. The more you grow in the love of God, the stronger your faith. In other words, love makes our faith effective.


Like the eye, it needs light rays to see clearly. Without the light, our eyes cannot see. In the same way, without love, faith becomes dim. To grow in the love of God, kindly download and read my books, What is Love, and the series on the Holy Spirit for a more profound revelation.


You can also download and read my book, How to Unlock the Gate of Faith, for more profound revelations. Freely download the books on my blog and youtube channel. I gave you a brief introduction to faith.


It's time to unlock the keys to uncommon power! As humans, we often become depressed, angry, and forsaken when our faith starts failing. In those moments, we must apply the kingdom keys. In my previous article, I gave some profound keys we can deploy when our faith fails. In this article, I will share three additional keys on what to do when faith starts failing. Below are the special keys. Kindly share the link to this article to help others grow spiritually.



Three Things to Do When Faith is Failing


1. Revive your inner man

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:16 KJV

One thing I have realized about spiritual songs is that they carry power. Anytime I worship and praise God in my chambers, I feel renewed, revived, and regenerated. Anytime you sense that your faith is sinking, enter your chambers and glorify God in the beauty of his holiness.


Worship and praise have become a lifestyle. It’s one of my secret keys to spiritual growth! Download anointed and biblical songs, as well as hymns, and play them in your chambers. The Book of Psalms in the Holy Bible is full of spiritual songs. Encourage yourself with the inspired psalms recorded in the Holy Bible.


And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Ephesians 5:18-20 KJV

Apostle Paul encourages us to revive our inner man with spiritual songs. We must sing and make melody in our hearts. When the enemy trapped Paul and Silas in the prison, they prayed and sang praises unto God.


Paul and Silas experienced the miracle of God when they deployed the key of spiritual songs and prayers (see Acts 16:25-26). Fellowship with the Holy Spirit through spiritual songs. The more you fellowship with the Holy Spirit through spiritual songs, the more your faith grows (meditate on Romans 10:17).


When your faith grows, the holy spiritual forces will be attracted to your faith, leading to a miracle. I encourage you to download and read my books, The Mysteries and Power of Spiritual Songs and How to Worship God in Spirit and Truth, for more profound revelations. Freely download and read books on my blog and youtube channel.



2. Defeat darkness with the unquenchable light

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…

Colossians 3:16 KJV

Have you asked yourself why Apostle Paul wrote that we should let the Word of Christ (the Holy Bible) dwell in us richly? It’s because the Word of Christ Jesus carries power! The Word of God is like a hammer that destroys the seeds of fear and doubt in our inner being.


For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 KJV

Anytime unbelief enters your heart, drive it away with the Word of God! The Word of God delivers us when it enters our spirit and soul. The Word of God can destroy every seed the enemy has planted in our inner being.


Is not my Word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29 KJV

What do you do when a fire breaks into your car, home, asset, or office? You use a fire extinguisher to deal with the fire. Water may help get rid of the fire. However, a fire extinguisher can deal with a fire outbreak within a second.


Sometimes, you have to call the fire service to deal with the fire because of its intensity. That is how we deal with unbelief. Depending on the level of fear and doubt, you either use a fire extinguisher or call the fire service.


The fire service carries power. In the same way, the more you take in the Word of God, the stronger the extinguisher becomes (meditate on 1 Peter 2:2). It will come to a time when you will become a fire extinguisher because of the amount of the Word in you.


As Paul writes in Colossians chapter three verse sixteen, Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…” The Word of God must be abundant in our souls and spirit. With these divine missiles, we can deal with the arrows of fear, doubt, and unbelief.


Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psalms 119:105 KJV

As stated, we live in a dark world surrounded by evil minds. Evil minds can damage our faith. We need the light of the Word to enlighten our path. We need the unquenchable lamp to walk through the deceptive systems of the world.


Make the Word of God your anchor when unbelief knocks because ignorance of the Word weakens your faith. Kindly read article two and meditate on Romans chapter ten, verse seventeen, for more profound revelations.



3. Look beyond

Abraham had substantial reasons to give up on God. However, he kept the faith. Imagine a hundred-year-old man with his ninety-year-old wife expecting a child. Some people may call such couples abnormal because it is naturally “impossible” to have a child at that stage.


Abraham and his wife Sarah had a similar case. However, Abraham had faith that God could provide. Because Abraham had faith in God, he received the miracle (the child). The people who mocked Abraham and his wife, Sarah, became ashamed because Abraham did not give up on God.


Sometimes, what you are going through can be a trial from God. Be patient. You might not understand what is going on in your life. However, stay on course. Keep the faith. Do not give up. Do not give in. Believe that all things work together for good to those who love God and those who are called according to his purpose.


…we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28 KJV

He (God) hath made every thing beautiful in his time…

Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV (Emphasis added)

Exercise patience because God makes everything beautiful in his time. God is not a man who should lie (see Numbers 23:19). God is faithful to His Word. Keep moving. Don’t let your limited mind destroy your faith (meditate on Isaiah 55:6-9).


Believe with all your heart, mind, and strength that we serve a righteous God who will not forsake you (meditate on Jeremiah 29:11). I will continue in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article to help others grow in their faith.
