KEY SCRIPTURE:1Ti 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.”
The Lord after delivering the Jews from the dominance of Egypt and Pharaoh gave the land of Canaan to them as their inheritance. These lands were inhabited by certain people, and they had to possess these lands by fighting and taking over. Our inheritance includes all that our Lord Jesus Christ through His death, obtained for us.
The following are just but a few of what the Lord Jesus through His death, obtained for us. They include:
Eternal life for us (John 3:16)
Forgiveness of sins (Eph 1:7)
Healing for our bodies (Isaiah 53:4&5)
Peace of mind (Isaiah 53:5)
Authority over devils (Matt 28:18)
Holiness of life (Rom 6:14)
The authority of the name of Jesus (Mark 16:15)
And many more.
Just as the Jews had to fight to possess their inheritance, we must also fight to possess our inheritance. Now notice this, our battle is not against demons: our battle is called, the fight of faith. The word of God did say, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual entities. The goal of these forces is to dethrone your faith in the word of God, so they could properly deal with you. So long as your faith in God and His word is firm, NO ENEMY CAN PUT YOU DOWN. Mark 9:23 KJV “Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”.
YOUR fight to possess your inheritance is the fight of faith, as stated in our key scripture (1st Tim 6:12). The fight of faith is the ability to hold on to what God has said, irrespective of what may be happening physically. In the midst of any crises or pursuit to take your inheritance, for example your health. Your focus must be your confidence in all that God has said about your healing, and simultaneously refusing to consider the symptoms. The devil may worsen the symptoms, but don’t look and consider them, they are false vanities. Jonah 2:8 KJV” They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy “. Your mercy is the healing God has provided already, yet if you worry, consider the symptoms, which the Bible calls lying vanities you can’t possess that inheritance which is legally yours.
Get these facts. 1 The devil and his demons are not the problem.
2.The difficulty, challenge or the trouble is also not the problem.
3.The real issue is to maintain your faith in God in the midst of all contrary evidences.
The Lord Jesus conquered and gave me the victory. I possess every blessing or heritage he has already won. I refuse to consider any contrary evidence, and rather praise the Lord for my inheritance.
Deut 2:24 KJV” Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle”.
Joshua 1:5 KJV “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
