Fight the good fight of faith

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses (1 Timothy 6:12)

Throughout the New Testament Scriptures, the only fight we’re told to fight is the good fight of faith; and the Bible clearly states that it’s a good fight. This means it’s a worthy fight to be fought; more so, we’re on the winning side.

The flesh, the world and its systems, the devil and his cohorts have all been overcome for us by our LORD Jesus Christ. Now the only thing left for you to do is to appropriate all that Christ has accomplished on your behalf. This means that you see what He has given you and hold on to them in spite of everything that your physical senses can otherwise perceive. This is the fight of faith. It is the fight you face when you stand on God’s Word and refuse to observe anything contrary.

Let me explain further with this illustration: someone has been healed through the power of the Word of God, but somehow, he begins to feel some familiar symptoms in his body. Then the devil begins to taunt him saying “Are you really sure you’re healed? If you were healed, why are you feeling those pains? You’re still sick; why don’t you just admit it and stop deceiving yourself.”

Thoughts like this are missiles the devil fires at your mind, and Paul says in Ephesians 6:16 that you quench them with the shield of faith. This is where the fight of faith comes in, and God expects you to fight it because it’s a good fight. He has assured you of the victory!

If the symptoms ever come back, all you have to do is say, “I was healed in the Name of Jesus Christ and I remain healed!”  (1 Peter 2:24). When you talk like that, you wouldn’t be testifying to your feelings but to the Word of God. The Bible says, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Resist the devil with your faith-filled words and he will necessarily flee. That’s your victory in the fight of faith!


I walk by faith and not by what I see, feel, or hear. I cannot be discouraged or defeated, because the Holy Spirit in me is greater than the devil in the world. I am born of God and I have overcome the world and its evil system by my faith. Therefore, I take hold of my health, peace, prosperity, success, and everything that’s mine in Christ Jesus, Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
