The Good Fight

HARRASED

 Fight the good fight for the true faith. 1Timothy 6:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are in a daily battle with a sneaky, dirty filthy strong foe. His name is satan and his goal is the complete and total destruction of every Christian he can. He is smarter that us and stronger than us.

Our three weapons that defeat him are to be constantly by our side.

The first is our Bibles. We are to ask Jehovah to speak with us through it to bless us with battle verses to defeat our foe. After all, is that not how Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness. Are we not to emulate our King? So, if He defeated the devil with the Holy Bible should we not do so as well.

The second weapon is prayer. After all, how can satan attack us if we are talking with our Heavenly Father? When he attacks we go to Him and satan runs like a scared dog.

The third is obedience. Who knows better how to defeat satan than Jehovah? So who better to listen to to defeat satan than the eternal victorious One?

Every Christian is involved in a daily battle with no holds barred. Our victory comes from team work. The Holy Spirit and the Christian united is an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8) – The LORD Mighty In Battle for blessing me with the unbeatable weapons necessary to defeat my worst and most dangerous foe who is always lurking to seek the right moment to attack me. These weapons always guarantee me success. I applaud You in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
