Have You Fought A Good Fight?

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7)

Paul looked back at his life and he confidently asserted to Timothy, “I have fought a good fight!" In one of his letters, he wrote concerning himself “Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck. . . (2 Corinthians 11:24-25). He had been through so much that tried his faith, but he was able to testify that his faith had won. I want you to know that you do not have to wait until the end of you life to be able to say, “I have fought a good fight. " At every level and stage of your life, you can know that you have fought a good fight of faith.

You ought to know if you have fought a good fight at the level you are right now. Remember that this fight is not a fight against the devil, but a fight of faith. Have you fought a good fight in your school? Have you fight a good fight at that new job? Has your faith triumphed against every negative situation that you are facing now? If you are not sure, it is never too late to start - unleash your faith and when you are through with that level, you too will say, “I have fought a good fight!"

You can now pray this way “Dear father, I thank you for your Word that is building my faith strong. I am confident that my faith will prevail against all contrary circumstances. Thank you for the victory in Christ Jesus. Amen.
