Fighting for Your Promise (1 of 9)
I want to start a New Series called Fight. The Bible talks about Fighting the Good Fight of Faith! That Jesus has secured the Victory but at times there is still a Fight. We might be Fighting the Flesh (Our Will), Fighting The Devil, Fighting For What Is Right. But make no mistake about it, there is a Fight.
The difference is that we are not fighting in our ability or might. Rather we fight from a Position of Victory rather than fighting for the Victory. We know that the enemy is roaming around seeking whom he may devour. But he cannot devour you when you are aware.
Remember that sometimes life is just a fight at times. But we will not give in but we will Fight with the Grace of God that is within us!
