Everyone, everywhere, wants to know the answer to this question: what does it take to be a champion... a winner? Everyone wants to win, but not everyone is willing to pay the price to do it. It takes a commitment to be a champion & a winner, not just in the physical realm, but most importantly, in the spiritual realm.
Jesus said, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." (Matthew 11:12). When He said those words, He wasn't talking about going to heaven. He was talking about laying hold of the kingdom of God in the earth: taking hold of the promised blessings, healing, prosperity and peace. "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in EARTH as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10). We can have those kingdom blessings here and now, but it's not easy. We must take them by force. We must become spiritually aggressive if we want to walk in the supernatural. And we must do it by faith with the word of God or we won't do it at all.
Spiritually speaking faith is a violent force. The Apostle Paul said, "Fight the good fight of faith!" (1 Timothy 6:12). Faith is not passive, it's aggressive . Faith uses the Word of God as its weapon. It uses the Word of God coming out of our mouth as a two-edge sword (Hebrews 4:12). This powerful weapon will bring down every stronghold of unbelief and every demonic obstacle in its path!
Don't waste another minute, let's start training for our race now. Get your Bible, get into the Word-- it is a faith builder. Get aggressive with it. Do whatever it takes to be a spiritual champion... a winner. We can fight the "good fight of faith!" We can take down every demonic force with our two-edge sword, the Word of God coming out of our mouth. Remember, faith is a violent force; start exercising your faith today and become a spiritual champion-- a winner. Keep your two-edge sword sharpened by speaking God's Word out of your mouth daily, it will be worth it! Your faith "muscle" builds the more you use it. Confess "I fight the good fight of faith! I take the kingdom of heaven by force!"
