Did you know, the Good Fight of Faith always ends in victory, in triumph?
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
2 Corinthians 2:14 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
As you fight the good fight of faith today, remember this: Your mind is where the battle will always take place. Whatever you allow to captivate your mind and your thoughts will rule your life. Will it be the Word of God or the lies of Satan told through the things and people of the world? The decision is yours. Spend time in God’s Word, find out what it says about your situation. Listen for the ‘Still Small Voice’ of God, it’s usually just a delicate whisper in your inner most being.
If you want God’s Word to reign in your life, then make up your mind now to resist the devil, resist the lust of the flesh and the world, and refuse to surrender to the circumstantial pressure Satan brings your way. Decide at the onset that you will not succumb to this trial. Press in to God and stand immovable upon the promises of God’s Word.
When thoughts come that are contrary to God’s Word and His will, cast them down immediately, don’t give them a second thought. And above all, don’t worry and fret. Worrying is meditating on the thoughts Satan has brought your way. When you recognize you are worrying, stop it immediately. Replace worried, fearful, and doubtful thoughts with the Word of God, and meditate on those.
Be assured, Satan will continually try to tell you that your situation is hopeless. He will persistently peddle doubt, defeat, and discouragement. If you don’t buy his lies, he can’t cause them to come to pass in your life. Remember he is a liar and the father of all lies. You need to remind him of his future!
God has promised that He will always cause you to triumph in Christ. You are guaranteed victory over any adversity you face today, if you face it with Christ. Make up your mind right now to be a winner.
Holy Father God, I thank You for my triumph in and through Christ. I thank You Lord that You have made me the head and not the tail. I thank You Father that You have said in Your Word that I can do ALL things THROUGH Christ, who strengthens me. Father, I thank You for making me a winner and a victor in and through Christ Jesus. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray.
