The Good Fight
I pray you are having an amazing week so far! I hope that you were able to join me live Monday at 7pm this week. You can always go back and replay it! The new series continues for the month of August: Fight 4 Purpose. The topic today is "The Good Fight."
What is the good fight?
1 Timothy 6:12, "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."
When we are fighting for purpose, we are fighting the good fight of faith.
The enemy is after your faith. He wants to discourage you and make you question everything that God has told you. He will speak lies in your ear so you can throw in the towel. He wants you to feel destitute.
If you fail to continue in this fight, you forfeit your freedom. In Christ, you have been made free. In Galatians 2, Paul teaches on the fact that we live a new life by faith in Christ. It is no longer that you have to be perfect in your walk according to the law, but that your faith in Christ grants you grace to walk in freedom. The promises in God's word apply to your life. Therefore, you are to fight against the tormenting thoughts of insecurity when God has made you to live in confidence, fight the thoughts of lack when God said he has granted you the power to obtain wealth, and fight the thoughts of victimization because God has made you victorious.
The devil wants you to go backwards. He wants you to turn your back on God. He wants you to doubt the fulfillment of the promises of God for your life. You must not fold to the pressure. Pressure produces purpose. Pressure takes place before the release. If you give up to soon, you will not be able to receive the blessings that come from maintaining your faith during the process.
What you feel like has been lost, I encourage you to get into the presence of God and fight the good fight of faith to get it back. In the presence of God, you align yourself with God to receive what God has for you. Restoration is found in His presence. You may have experienced pain, disappointment, discouragement, or something else that has hurt you, but if you could continue to fight the good fight of faith, you will see the faithfulness of God extended to your life.
Ladies your purpose is connected to your willingness to stay in the fight!! Don't give up in a fight that Christ has already said you were destined to Win!!
