Wednesday Weapon 10.26.11

I Timothy 6:12..."fight the good fight of faith."

What determines a good fight? I guess it could be whether you win or loose, but Paul in several places talks about the, fight of faith.
 How do you fight with faith? The fight is to stay in faith. It is easy to get into the natural part of the fight, instead of standing on the Word of God, and allowing Him to fight the battle. Your part is to believe that God has your back, according to the Word. Not just because you think you are right, but because you have His Word to stand on. If you have a promise from His Word, then why give up on the victory, that will ultimately be yours. Paul said, that what God has promised, He is also able to perform.

Thank you Father that Your Word is truth. I can stand on Your Word in faith, trusting and believing that you have my back. Say that out loud, "God has my back!" You might want to say that several times a day. That is a great thing to know. Regardless of the problems you face, if you have the Word of God on it, you have a right to fight, stay in faith and get the victory.

Wednesday Weapon 10.19.11

James 1:2/4... That the testing of your faith produces patience.

Don't you just love to hear about something that will produce patience /That is the one thing that though we need it, we sure don't like it! We might do the faith thing as long as it works quick, but if it takes very long, well forget it! This verse is telling us that faith is not what gives you the victory when you are being tested, no, it is faith producing patience that will produce completeness and the lack of nothing.

The Message Bible says not to try and wiggle out of the situation, that's what we want to do most of the time. Learn to relax, when you stand in faith, God's got your back! Waiting on the Lord to move doesn't mean that He decided not to. When done Scripturally, it will draw you closer to God.

Thank you Father that I can always trust you. Even when it may seem like anything is happening, I know Your Word is working on my behalf. I am so glad that I can trust You to do Your part if I will do mine. So until my answer shows up I will rejoice in you, be patient, and draw closer to You.

Wednesday Weapon 10.5.11

Philippians 4:13 I can do ALL things through Christ that strengthens me. Tonight I will be speaking on a subject entitled, ”Never Give Up!” Notice the first three words, “I can do“. Have you ever heard someone say, “I can’t do that!” You may have said it before yourself. When it comes to the things that God has called us to do, then you can do it. Notice it says, “all things“. So what can you do? All things, I can do all things. Obviously we can’t do all things in our on strength and ability. The thing He is trying to get us to see is that it is not dependent on your strength, power or might. It is through Christ that strengthens me. Christ will strengthen you to do all the things that you set your hand to do. If you feel that God is in what you are trying to get done, then declare what He has said. I can do all things through Christ, His Word and ability. Forget giving up, He will always led you in triumph. Thank you Father that you never give up on me. I refuse to give up also. You are my strength, You are my ability, You are my power. I am anointed to prosper, I cannot and I will not fail because of Your Word. The Greater one is in me and I will overcome! P Lloyd
