SCRIPTURE: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We are called to fight but destined to win.
The Scriptures have established that the just shall live by his faith (Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38). The meaning is, if the just must survive the battles of life, faith is not negotiable. But it may surprise you to also know that faith does not prevent battles. Some people say, I do not have faith; that is why I am always confronted. No! Faith does not prevent confrontations; it only gives the power to persistently overcome confrontations and dwell in the arena of conflict.
No one overcomes without fighting. No wonder, 1 Timothy 6:12 says,”fight the good fight of faith.” So, anyone who is not ready for a fight is not ready for victory. 
The fight of faith is nothing but the confrontation of conviction; it is the enemy trying to challenge what you believe. That was why I had earlier on said, faith does not prevent battles or confrontations; it only guarantees victory in the face of battle.
So, we are called to fight but destined to win.

For a challenge or confrontation to arise against you is not an evidence of lack of faith; it is bowing to defeat that is the evidence of lack of faith.
Beloved, you may be facing a battle in your life right now, but I decree, that battle is over! Arise in victory by the weapon of faith, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Refuse to be afraid of the battles of life.
2. Engage your faith and the Word of God in the battles confronting you.
3. See your victory before you fight any battle.

PRAYER: Lord, I believe in the power of Your Word for my victory in life. I decree the destruction of every weapon against my life and destiny, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
