What is written is written. Satan can fight it, but cannot change it. He can attack it, but cannot defeat it. He can try to block it, but cannot stop it. There is power in the word of God. Before Satan was made,what was written about you is written. It is what the Word of God says about you. My name, you names are not in the company of the defeated. Our names are in the company of the victorious.

I want to continue to build your faith, but first, let me take you back to the basics.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:"(Ephesians 2:8)

The beginning of your growth in faith is the faith with which you accept Christ. The verse of scripture quoted above tells us that we are saved by grace through faith. Grace works by faith. We are saved by grace, but it is through faith. You can never take and operate grace without faith. The gift that God gives is salvation. Grace creates the atmosphere for you to receive the gift; the acceptance of the gift is a demonstration of faith.

You must operate with faith to accelerate the efficacy of grace. Don't get things mixed up, grace is not a gift, if it were, we wouldn't need faith. Faith is definitely not a gift, if it were, the Bible  wouldn't have said, "...Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 8:17).

Faith will not grow if you do not continually feed it with the word of God. The sinner who needs to be saved will be saved or must be saved by grace. In the book of Luke, we see an incredible account. Jesus had been on a fast, forty days and forty nights -fasting is necessary and important, but the fact that you fast does not mean your faith will grow - and on the last day, which was when He would break the bread the fast, the devil showed up and asked Jesus to command stones to become bread. Jesus answering him, said. "It is written".

Now, if it is written, how did Jesus know? He knew because He read it. He read the Word of God and He knew it. Even the Son of God read the Bible! In that case, you should follow His exemplary conduct and not seeking after prophecy.

You will never be bigger than the quantity and the quality of the Word of God in you.
