Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:12

Paul wrote to Timothy to fight the good fight of faith, because he knows there will be times we want to give up, times we feel too discouraged to pray, worship or read our Bible. We know this is something we need to do, and even if we are not feeling like it or excited about it, we still need to read our Bible, pray and worship. The enemy will attack us and make us feel discouraged and weary. However, we need to resist doing something based on our feelings. We need to continue to do the right thing despite what we feel.

Reading our Bible and praying is important for spiritual growth. Every now and then, we read and it feels like nothing happened -because we are so dry spiritually, keep reading even if you feel like it’s dry bread, and you didn’t get anything out of reading. Make reading your Bible a daily habit. It is still nourishing your spirit and over time- as you get back into reading once again- your eyes will be opened and new Revelations will return. Jesus says in Matthew 4:4 “man can not live on bread alone but every word that comes from the mouth of God”. Just like we need food to sustain us physically, we need God’s Word to sustain us spiritually.

The Word will be inside of you- and in times of crisis, all of a sudden the Holy Spirit- will draw from your storehouse of Scripture- to speak and encourage you. You need Scripture in your spiritual storehouse -so keep filling yourself up and when needed the Holy Spirit will remind of the things you learned. Christian walk is a very long marathon or journey, not a sprint, we are in it for the long haul- so we need to continue to be faithful daily and continue and fight the good fight of faith!!

Let us pray.

Heavenly Father,

We are all tired and weary from all the events and life changes of 2020. We feel dry and discouraged at times. We pray for You to Strengthen us during these difficult times. We pray for the Body of Christ to have Fresh Revelations and excitement about studying Your Word. We know the Christian walk is a long journey, help us to be equipped to endure this long journey until we are finally with You in Your Holy Presence. Strengthen us, Pour a Fresh Power of Your Holy Spirit daily and carry us through 2021 with Your Grace. We surrender before You all of our burdens, concerns and ALL prayer requests.

We ask all these things in the Name of Jesus.
