SCRIPTURE: 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. – 1 Timothy 6:12.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We disarm darkness with the weapon of light.
In the words of God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo, “Life is a battle, not a playground; it is warfare not funfair.” (Ephesians 6:12).
Beloved, it is important to note that although we are called to fight, we are destined to win. The fight is a fight of faith, and faith does not fight to lose; it fights to win. So, never calculate defeat in your life.
So let’s look at one of the weapons in the fight of faith:
The Light of God’s Word or Rhema.
I heard a folk tale from Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa of blessed memory: he said that it was reported to the sun that there is a land of absolute darkness and there is nothing anyone can do for light to come there. So, the sun said, ‘let me go and see it.’ So it travelled there. The sun arrived in the land and stayed there for three months. After the three months, it told the inhabitants, ‘I was told there was darkness in this land but I have been looking for it since I came’ and they told the sun, ‘since you came, the darkness has disappeared.’
In every area of your life where there is darkness, God will show you the light out of Scripture that will displace such darkness, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: We disarm darkness with the weapon of light.
1. Never give up in life’s battle.
2. Stay loaded; gather Scriptural bullets daily.
PRAYER: LORD, thank You for Your Word. Open my eyes to see the Light that will handle every battle around me, O LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
