What’s up guys!
The enemy has really been putting roadblocks in my path lately. I mean, it is so hard to stay focused and stay positive.
There is a school I want to go to and there are a lot of prerequisites. I mean a lot! I thought I was going to get in and today, I found out that I don’t meet the requirements for admission.
Guys, I am crushed… I have to wait until next year to apply! I have been waiting two years to apply already. And I am not known to be very good at waiting.
Lately I have had to do a bunch of waiting, and it would be very easy to just give up. Honestly I almost did, but my pastor reminded me that the enemy will try to derail my plans and that I have to fight the good fight of faith! I can’t let Satan steal what the Lord has put on my heart.
I have a purpose and a calling, and the Bible says in 1 Timothy chapter 6 verse 12, “Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses”.
It is a fight; it is hard, but you have to hold on and don’t let go! The enemy will try to trip you up and make you want to give up, but you rebuke him and speak life!
Trust me, I know it’s hard! Here is how you and I can fight:
First, hit your knees. Pray. Pray for God to give you wisdom, patience, and grace.
Next, call what is not as though it is. SPEAK LIFE!
Lastly, and probably most importantly, worship Him and thank Him for what He is going to do! When you worship, you are giving God something to work with.
Don’t let go! If God has called you, He will equip you!
Remember, God loves you and so do I!
