Faith is required to gain victory over the forces of the wicked, and it's also required to retain victory. Many believers drop the shield of faith when they win a battle, and this is why their challenges always come back to them. Winning a battle doesn't guarantee that you'd win the war. The bible tells us to resist the devil; and even when we've successfully resisted him, we still need to resist him steadfastly.
There is no holiday in the realm of the spirit. After Jesus resisted satan three times, the bible tells us that "satan went away for a season". And It wasn't long before he came back – reinforced. He even manifested himself in the life of Jesus' disciples. But Jesus was always ahead of Satan; even when satan was away He still remembered to pray and fast, He still remembered to reach out to the lost. If you forget the steps you took to be free from satan, you may have to start over again. There is no graduation in the school of faith. Every victory you gain is only a promotion to the next class – where you'd be expected to even work more.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; THE FAITH YOU NEED TO RETAIN YOUR VICTORY IS MORE, COMPARED TO THE FAITH YOU USED TO GET IT. REMEMBER, NEVER CAST AWAY YOUR FAITH! Have a most fruitful day! In Jesus precious name!
