Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
The Christian is not permitted to float leisurely down the stream of the world, and so reach “the haven where his soul would be.” He must swim against the current, and for his very life. The faith, which he professes with his lips, he must adorn with his life. Benjamin Bradney Beckett
The Christian life is a battle against principalities and powers of darkness. Your faith will be tried and tested. You will face stiff opposition from your fallen nature (the flesh) and the world (troubles, trials, tribulations, and temptations). thedeepthingsofgod.com
Faith is knowing and believing that God will work everything out according to His plans for you. Have you ever traveled at night and even though you had the directions from the GPS, you begin to doubt if the directions are accurate because it is taking much longer than you anticipated? When we are suffering the harsh trials and sorrows of life, many times we begin to feel defeated, and we are ready to give up. Do not give up! Redirect your focus on God. You are closer to victory than you think. God never fails!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
God, please help us to never give up on you. Amen.
