God didn’t have a bad day while He wrote a book about your life. He didn’t say, “This book is too perfect. Should we shake things up and throw in a car accident or something?”
Although God didn’t write painful events into your life, you need to know that there are going to be a few battles along the road. You see, your destiny is a path that God has prepared for you ahead of time. But it’s also your faith-filled journey down that path.
Life won’t hand you your dreams and Satan is going to try to get you off track, so it’s going to take faith to walk out God’s plans.
When the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, God promised them a lush, fertile land that flowed with milk and honey. But just because this was God’s plan didn’t mean the world handed it to them on a silver platter. The occupants of that land didn’t say, “Oh, God said you could have this land? Well then, let us get out of your way!”
The Israelites had to fight for that land. First they had to have faith that they would win. Actually, an entire generation died in the wilderness before the next generation rose up to take what God had promised. Second, they had to fight for what was theirs.
God has promised you a life that is better than you can imagine, but you’re going to need to fight for it. Fight to stay in faith for the joy, health, peace and prosperity He’s promised you. Fight to develop the skills and abilities He’s given you. Fight the good fight of faith to believe that, because of Jesus, you can do what it takes and have what He says!
