Good fight

Fight the good fight of faith….1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV)

 

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!

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
