"I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but ye know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you" (John 14:16-17).

God has made mighty provisions for your continued success. That's a powerful statement. But it's true. He has given you MUCH! He has given you everything you need to succeed in this life. He's given you His Word, the blood of Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit…to name just some of them.

But for them to work, you have to do your part. Some people who don't understand this waste a great deal of time. When they find themselves in a hard situation, they often sit back and wait for God to rescue them.

You won't get anywhere by just waiting for God to do everything. As one minister says, "The Holy Spirit is your Helper, and if you don't do what you're supposed to, He doesn't have anything to help!"

So don't just sit there - do something!

Fight the good fight of faith. Put the Word of God in your heart and in your mouth and get aggressive about it. I know it's hard to speak words of faith when you're facing an impossible situation. But you were born again to be able to accomplish hard things!

I think it was a great blessing that Ken and I were in an impossible situation financially when we first began to hear the Word of faith. (I didn't think it was a blessing then, of course, but I do now!) Our finances were minus zero at that point in our lives. We didn't have anything but our debts!

We were so desperate we had to believe God. It was the hardest believing we ever did too, because we didn't know very much in those days. But we got aggressive with our faith. We got aggressive with the Word.

The fact is, if you want to lay hold of the authority of God and walk in the supernatural, you aren't going to do it from your spiritual easy chair. You have to press yourself. As Jesus said, "The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man press into it" (Luke 16:16).

Press. That is such an important word today. If there ever was a generation that needed to press into God, it's ours. So take what God has given you. Get the Word in your heart and in your mouth. Plead the blood of Jesus over your circumstances and your family members. Get aggressive. And give the Holy Spirit something to help!

Speak the Word: As I do my part to press forward and lay hold of God's promises for my life, the Holy Spirit helps me. (John 14:26)
