Faith is Aggressive!
1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV) "Fight the good fight of the faith. ..."
Desperate times call for desperate measures!
How much more of that tough situation are you going to tolerate?
Have you reached the point of saying, "Enough is enough!"?
Well then, don't just sit there and wait for something to happen! Get aggressive!
I have learnt this the hard way … only when I reached this stage ... when I got really angry with the enemy's interference in my life and started to get spiritually aggressive that things started to change for the better and I started to see God's Hand at work. Bear in mind that God is not moved by your situation, he is moved by faith. I honestly believe that my marriage would have ended in divorce if I just gave up when things got tough and if I didn't fight the good fight of faith.
Many of you may have found that when you prayed about something for a long time and nothing happened ... but only when you got really desperate and started to fast and pray more fervently ... and fought the good fight of faith that you received your breakthrough. Imagine how much time (often many years!) we could have saved!
Many think that Christians are not supposed to fight or get angry or aggressive. That's what the enemy wants us to believe. God's Word (1 Tim 6:12) tells us that we should fight the good fight of faith ... this means that Faith is aggressive! It uses the Word of God as a weapon to bring down every spiritual stronghold and obstacle that's preventing you from receiving what God has in store for you.
Father God has equipped us with many different emotions ... all of which if used correctly are meant to help us in our spiritual walk. We are not meant to fight with each other ... "For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms." (Eph 6:12).
Get familiar with God's Word and memorise certain scriptures that's relevant to that situation in your life. We need to put God's Word in our hearts and our mouths ... we need to use His Word as a weapon to fight the good fight of faith.
Abba Father, thank You for equipping us with all that we need to do life ... and do it Your way.
Thank You for Your Word.
Thank You for the seed of faith that You have planted in each one of us.
Thank You for Your wisdom and knowledge.
Thank You for being my Defender and my Protector!
Today I come before You with a humble heart and submit my everything to Your authority ... and choose to fight the good fight of faith.
I put my faith and trust in You with total confidence.
I thank You in faith for that breakthrough in every situation and in every area of my life.
In all things I give You all the praise, glory and honour.
In Jesus’ Name.
