“Fighting for your future 2”
1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
DON’T LET THE FIRE CHANGE YOUR CONFESSION. LET YOUR CONFESSION CHANGE THE FIRE.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN – “The fight of today is not all together for today but for a bright future”
2 Cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,
THERE’S TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.
- BELIEVE – THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH
THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH; IS BELIEVING THAT IF GOD IS FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU… Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”
- SPEAK – THE LIFE OF PAUL
REMEMBER PAUL ON THE SHIP… Acts 27
PAUL SAID WHAT HE BELIEVED…
IN THE MIDDLE OF ADVERSITY DON’T SAY, “WHY”?
LEARN HOW TO GET TOUGH AND SLING THE WORD.
Ex. PAUL AND SILAS Acts 16 AT MIDNIGHT…
WHAT YOU DO AT MIDNIGHT WILL DETERMINE YOUR FUTURE…
26:1 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself: I think myself happy, king Agrippa
25 Festus hollered at him and said, Paul you’re crazy!
Smith W – If the enemy can move you from a place of faith he can get you outside of the plan (WILL) of God for you life.
