A good Fight!!



I was pondering how when things in life are changing for the better sometimes others things can go a little hay-wire. Attacks in my life right now are becoming a little common for my own comfort. The thoughts of fear and dread is not a place I want to go. Trusting God and having faith is a pretty cliche answer that I set on loop in my head but sometimes faith has to come from somewhere not just a statement. This verse popped into my head and I think for the 1st time I got it!!!

1 Tim 6:12 (amp)
Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned .
It is always going to be a fight!!!
I have to make a choice to ignore doubt and listen to the Holy Spirit. The mind is where the enemy attacks, he is a liar, he can only decieve us if we choose to listen. He plants thoughts apposing God's truth but I will no longer believe only what I can see.
I will strive to always decide to seek the Kingdom first and know it is more real than this carnal world I live in.
I will choose the voice of the Spirit and assume the position in the Kingdom that God needs me to fill. God is my source. My mind will learn to be at Peace or I will learn to ignore it.
I realize now that I have a fantasy that stepping out into the world for God is always going to be comfortable. The Holy Spirit is called the Comforter, why would I need a comforter when I am always comfortable. If I ask for the deeper things of God and long to go further in the Kingdom then shouldn't I be prepared for a fight. The bible talks about putting on the full armor of God. It doesn't sound like I'm preparing for a picnic.
I will stop imagining everything being perfect and easy and just step out, never alone but armed for battle with everything in balance and agreement with the Word of God.



I open my mouth and declare truth. Have you ever noticed that while talking the mind isn't as loud. Try counting to ten in your head while saying the days of the week.


~Things I am declaring over my life~
~God wins, always!!
~My mouth will only speak what edifies His Kingdom.
~I dig deeper everyday in the knowledge of his Kingdom.
~I can bless a person today.
~I am able to run the race that God has called for me
~The Favor of God is upon me
~I am in right standing, my rightiousness is in Christ

Coincidence? Maybe. Right after posting my entry today (about be grateful for God's blessings) I hit the "next blog" button and came upon your entry about faith. Like I said, coincidence? Maybe.

"I open my mouth and declare truth. Have you ever noticed that while talking the mind isn't as loud. Try counting to ten in your head while saying the days of the week." - That's deep.

Well, that is cool. I was just going through some journaling I've done just recently and sharing my thoughts. God is so good to me I have to talk about it! His goodness is for everyone!

I have been feeling a lot of doubts lately and I have to remember that yes I am always going to have to fight, but I can make it easier by not listening to those doubts. I love you girlie! You're amazing :)
