September 11–Spiritual Vitamins–Day 11

SPIRITUAL VITAMIN F: FIGHT
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called…”  1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV)


Today’s Thought:

Why does it say “fight”?
Because some days it is a fight just to exercise our faith.
Satan throws his darts, the world sets its snares, our flesh is weak, and so we become discouraged.

But…we need to remember that the battle is won in our minds!
Romans 12:2 says: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Therefore, we must fight the good fight of faith
AND contend with the daily cares and struggles of the Christian life!
We need to remind ourselves
that this life AND our daily circumstances are just temporary. The best is yet to come!
So, Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.Colossians 3:2 NKJV

Today’s Action:
Today’s Vitamin F is Fight.
Fight to focus on keeping your faith strong and healthy.
Read the word and pray to strengthen your faith for “the just shall live by his faith.” Habakkuk 2:4 NKJV

Remember! We have an eternal life in Christ but we need to fight the good fight of faith while we are still alive here on the earth!
So, let’s set our focus on keeping our faith fit today so we will be strong and able to “Fight the good fight of faith” today and everyday until we “lay hold on eternal life,…”

FAITH FIGHTS SATAN’S STRATEGIES
above all, taking the shield of faith
with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
Ephesians 6:16

FAITH STRUGGLES AGAINST THE FLESH
See that you do not become sluggish,
but imitate those who through faith
and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:12

FAITH OPPOSES THE WORLD
And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.
1 John 5:4
