THE FIGHT OF FAITH
Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. Joshua 1:7
Living a life of consistent confidence in the promises of God’s Word takes courage. The faith walk is a tough walk, and if we want to keep living in victory, we have to be ready to fight again and again.
The children of Israel thought their battles should be over when they crossed the Red Sea. So when they heard reports of giants living in the Promised Land, they decided they couldn’t face the fight. Their courage failed them. So they took a 40-year diversion through the wilderness.
But you know what? They still couldn’t avoid that fight. When the time came for the next generation to enter the Promised Land, the giants were still there! This time, however, they found the courage to face them. Where did they find it? In the Word of God. Their leader, Joshua, had obeyed the instruction of the Lord and kept that Word on his mind and in his heart day and night. He’d meditated on it and let it constantly remind him that God was on their side.
If you’re going to fight the good fight of faith to the finish, you’ll have to do just like Joshua did. You’ll have to continually draw courage from the Word of God. So make up your mind to do it. Get into that Word and let it change you from a coward to an overcomer. Then march into battle and slay the giants on your land and take your divine inheritance.
Prayer: Lord, give me courage to fight the fight of faith and overcome the challenges the devil throws at me.
Scriptural Reading: Joshua 1:1-9
