Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Timothy 6:12 (KJV); 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.
Faith is our true fight, meaning that in any circumstance, we always FIGHT TO BELIEVE.
The Greek Word for good in our theme scripture is kalos which is translated to mean, “beautiful to look at, admirable, commendable.”
God wants you to fight a fight that is beautiful to look at!
Don’t go through issues grumbling about how unlucky you are! That is not a commendable fight!
Don’t hear bad news and lament about how dead you are. That is not an admirable fight.
The Bible has examples of how to fight the good fight.
When Paul and Silas were thrown in jail, they simply worshipped God
(Acts 16:25-29). That is an admirable fight.
When the children of Moab and Ammon waged war against Jehoshaphat, he and the children of Israel sang praises to God
(2 Chronicles 20).
When the Shunamite woman was asked if all was well with her son, she declared, “It is well” despite the fact that the child was dead
(2 Kings 4:26).
The good fight is of the man who hears the doctor’s negative report and laughs.
The good fight is of the man who is attacked by his enemies and dances in victory.
The good fight is of the woman whose child is at the brink of death but she lifts her hands in worship to the God of all truth.
You fight beautifully because your victory in Christ is already assured. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. What a blessed assurance to know that I have constant victory in you. I am above all powers and principalities and have overcome this world. I function from the eternal plane and understand that I can never fail. In this truth, I rejoice in all situations. I look to the eternal weight of glory that follows any light afflictions.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
