FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

How much easier it would have been if God had said for us to take it easy, get a few extra hours of sleep, lay back, and that all will be just fine.  But God knows that we have an enemy, satan, who would look for a time just like that, and take what we have worked so hard for.

The Bible tells us to fight the fight of faith.  I have found that there is so much doubt and unbelief out there.  We need to watch what we read, hear, and see.  This fight of faith comes against us on every side. 

Here you are, standing on the Word of God for your healing, and faith is rising up in your heart, and then someone comes along and says, “Well, you know, it might be God who put this on you to teach you something.”  Then all that faith that you worked so hard to get in your heart gets watered down.  That is why Paul states here that we need to fight for our faith.  We need to lay hold of eternal life.

When I lay hold of something good or important, I have to hold onto it for dear life.  I have to be like a pit bull with a bone in my mouth.  I need to be single minded, believing that what God said is true.  I am not going to let go of it, no matter what.   I am not going to let go of it, no matter what anyone says.  I really do not care how many books someone wrote, or how big his or her church is.  IF GOD SAID IT, THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING TO BELIEVE.  How about you?

Confession: Today, I choose to fight the good fight of faith.  Today, I choose to lay hold of eternal life.  I am like a pit bull with a bone.  If God said it, I am going to believe it until I see the manifestation of it.
