The above title is simply asking a question of how do you respond to life challenges, issues and troubles?, Are you quick to fight or quick to fear?! If all the people on earth are easily moved to fear, I think Christians should be different, with all that is available for us in Christ, we should no longer be a slave to fear, in fact, Fear should be afraid of us. How do you react to what Satan and his hosts are doing against you?, Do you run away in fear or you stand and fight and win??!
Some Christians have attacked me sometimes when I made some utterances of faith, they immediately speak against me because they were under the bondage of fear, they couldn’t believe God for things I believe Him for…What they termed as impossible, I saw them as something that is too possible for God to do. Therefore, to speak the language of Faith in negative situations of life is to be quick to fight. Bible talked about fighting the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12), and this implies that faith involves fighting, you must fight to keep your faith strong and potent, this is because a lot of things will spring up from your environment and even from your flesh to contend with what your Faith stands for. So, if there’s anything I do a lot on daily basis, that thing is FIGHTING, I understand that I do not only need to fight to get victory, I must also fight to keep the victory I have obtained. We must always be ready to fight and not to fear, don’t be a Christian that is always wishing that things will go well, be the Christian that always make things go well.
There was a particular breakthrough I had been trusting God for, and it got to a point that I said “how can the devil be so strong against this blessing”, I said so because every door we approached to pull out the blessing ended up closing against us, but I thank God that we never stopped fighting, and today I can assure you that we do not only got the blessing we have been waiting for, we also got an open door through which more blessings can flow through. I don’t know the kind of negative situations you are currently facing and maybe you have fought and fought and still no breakthrough, I’m here to encourage you not to stop fighting because the forces of heaven working with you are greater than the forces on earth working against you. To keep fighting is to continue believing God when there seems to be no more reason to believe God, To keep fighting is to continue fasting and praying until you see results, yes To fight is to align your thinking and speaking with what God has said and is saying and not what people say or will say. Also, I discovered that many Christians today are so afraid of temptations and sins and that is why they couldn’t live right before God, when Sin or temptations appear before you, you don’t fear, you fight it! Your thoughts shouldn’t be “I am going to fall again today”, it should be “I am going to win again today”, when you attack temptations with the Truth you have, they would become weak and you will prevail.
SOMEBODY SAID “WHY IS IT THAT THINGS DON’T EASILY GO WELL WITH CHRISTIANS AS IT GOES WELL WITH UNBELIEVERS?”, I SAID IT’S BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT MUCH FORCES WORKING AGAINST UNBELIEVERS AS THERE ARE WORKING AGAINST US…DEVIL DOESN’T NEED TO AFFLICT THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY PART OF HIS KINGDOM!!
YOU ALSO NEED TO NOTE THAT “THE QUICKER YOU FIGHT, THE QUICKER YOU WIN”, SOME OF YOU ARE CURRENTLY FIGHTING BATTLES YOU SHOULD HAVE FOUGHT AND WON MANY YEARS AGO…YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT THE LONGER YOU STAY IN DEFEAT, THE MORE WORSE YOUR SITUATION WILL BECOME!!! Arise and fight!!!! Amen.
