Even in hard times, you must have confidence in God's love for you. It is this revelation of His love for you that will produce the might you need to win every battle. When you are confident
of His love, that love will manifest everything you need to be
victorious in this life.

  1. There will never be any breakthrough in the lives of people who don't hear a Word from God.
  2. Until you spend enough time fellowshipping in the Word to hear the voice behind the Word, you'll never be a candidate for breakthrough.
  3. Don't be satisfied with a mental assent of the Word, because you'll never be successful if you can't hear from God.
  • None of the miracles in the Bible took place without someone having first heard a word from God.
    1. When you hear a word from God, no devil in hell can stop you. You are made strong and mighty, and you will not quit.
  • Every believer should hear God say to him or her, "I love you."

  • Your confidence and trust in the fact that God loves you is the first area the Enemy will attack.
    1. If you don't believe that God loves you, you don't have a leg to stand on when an attack comes.
      1. When you understand and have confidence in the love God has for you, then you will trust everything His Word says concerning you.
      2. You must meditate on the truth that God loves you, because Satan will try to bring guilt and condemnation to defeat you.
    2. God knew you would always come up short, so He sent Jesus to make up the difference.
      1. Every time you doubt God, you doubt His love.

  • Don't allow past sins to escort you into your future.
    1. Satan, not God, is the accuser of the brethren. God won't mention past sins or even recall them (Zephaniah 3:16-17, AMP).
    2. God rejoices and sings over you because He sees what you will become through the blood of Jesus. Whenever disappointment comes your way, say,
      "I cannot be defeated, and I will not quit."
    3. Your trust and confidence in the truth that God loves you is your strength, and that's what Satan is after (Isaiah 30:15, AMP).
    4. Condemnation and guilt are indicators that you have lost confidence in God (1 John 3:21, AMP).
    5. God did not start loving you when you became born again; He loved you while you were in sin. It was that love that drew you to Him.
    6. How much more does God love you now that you are born again? He's in love with you!

  • Your confidence should be in God and in His love for you, not in yourself.
    1. You must trust and have confidence in God with all your heart, instead of relying on your own insight and understanding (Proverbs 3:5, AMP).
    2. Don't allow what you know or don't know in the natural to overshadow the all-knowing God; there is nothing He can't do. He'll work things out in
      your favor.
    3. When you trust in God you exude confidence, because you know He "has your back."
    4. Confidence in God's love, not your prayer technique, will produce manifestation in your life (1 John 5:14).
      1. Prayer isn't like casting a spell. You must have confidence in the One to Whom you pray.
    5. Biblical principles won't work if you don't know that God loves you.

  • Manifestation is a result of God's love for you (John 14:21).
    1. If you want manifestation in your life, you must have confidence in His love for you. If you doubt His love, you hinder your manifestation.
    2. You can't walk around expecting manifestation when you don't believe He loves you.
    3. Manifestation is attached to love.
    4. You must do more than say, "I love you." You must manifest actions that show your love.
      1. Example: Husbands should manifest gifts, time, romantic vacations and so on to show love to their wives.
      2. Example: Parents should manifest gifts, time, affection and so on to show their children that they are loved.

  • Hard times will hit the earth, but those who are confident in God's love for them won't even know it.
    1. God's kingdom will always supply what you need, regardless of what's going on in the world's system.
    2. When you know God's love, you know He'll supply whatever you need; therefore, you won't be stressed when situations come up.
    3. Be careful of how you respond to circumstances, because your response indicates your level of confidence.
    4. Even when you don't see how things will work, know that God loves you and that He will manifest Himself on your behalf.

  • You must hold fast to your confidence until you see the end of your faith (Hebrews 3:6, 14).
    1. Payday will come because of the confidence you have in God (Hebrews 10:35).
    2. When you trust in the Lord, you are like a mountain that cannot be moved (Psalm 125:1, AMP).
    3. Satan will try to do everything he can to demonstrate to you that God doesn't love you so that you'll blame God for the mess in your life instead of
      accepting responsibility for your part in the mess.
    4. Even in your selfishness and pride, God has surrounded you with His protection and love.
    5. None of the Devil's actions should move you, so don't be terrified by anything he throws at you (Acts 20:24; Philippians 1:28).
