Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. (1 Tim 6:12)

You have been called unto eternal life but experiencing it requires some effort on your part. This explains why mot believers struggle and live below their new creation rights.

Earlier in my ministry, I thought ministry was all about the anointing of the Spirit. So I endeavored to learn God's word about functioning in it. And quite frankly, it became really easy for me to walk in the demonstration of the Spirit.

But I noticed that all that demonstration of God's power never affected my pocket or bank account. It was until much later I got to understand that just as I learnt and applied God's word for walking in the anointing, I needed to do the same for my finances.

The same is applicable to you as well. When you gave your heart to Christ, you received a total package. that package includes your health, ministry, career success, family well-being, finances and everything you would ever represent.

However, you have to learn how to appropriate all that to your life in other to enjoy them here. Otherwise, you will just be a theoretical victor or a potential victor in Christ. That is where fighting the good fight of faith comes in.

You have been called unto eternal life but experiencing it requires some effort on your part. This explains why mot believers struggle and live below their new creation rights.

The expression "fight the good fight of faith" above refers to a contention, struggle or labor to accomplish something where faith is the instrument of war. So Paul was advising us to learn to use and exercise our faith in the possession of all that is in the eternal life package.

So the next time a challenge or difficulty that negates what God's word has assured you of comes against you, instead of succumbing to the pressure, hold out your faith against it. Determine not to give in until your faith produces result.

special note

The earlier you start being stubborn about using your faith to get results, the better for you because every time you give in, you reduce your chances of winning the next time!
