Get up and fight the good fight of Faith ~ 1 Tim. 6:12
Some of us are strong in faith but weak in fight. Without fight, Caleb would never have gotten his inheritance. Listen to Joshua 14:12, “Now therefore give me this mountain… if so be the Lord will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out.”
To subdue Goliath, David had to fight. David said to the Philistines in 1 Sam. 17:47 “And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord‘s, and he will give you into our hands.” Did you hear that? All shall know the battle is the Lords! The world and church want to know if the God we talk about is bigger than any giant they face. Their weapons don’t work, and they wonder if ours do.
Consequently, it’s a lot easier to admire Jesus than to follow Him. The moment you really try to follow Jesus, you’re in the fight of your life; in the work place, community, home, and anywhere else you happen to be. However, remember it’s the battles that produce victories. Believe me, God has planned out your victory! Therefore, the bigger your battle, the greater your victory will be!
