I Tim. 6:12 “Fight the good fight of faith; lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned and (for which) you confessed the good confession ( of faith) before many witnesses”

To be aggressive is to be a fighter.  Just as the apostle Paul said that he had fought the good fight of faith (2 Timothy 4:7), so he instructed his young disciple Timothy to fight the good fight of faith in our daily lives as we struggle against spiritual enemies in high places and in our own mind and heart.

One part of fighting the good fight of faith is being able to recognize the enemy.  As long as we are passive, Satan will torment us.  Nothing is going to change about our situation if all we do is just sit and wish things were different.  We have to take action.  Too often we don’t move against the4 enemy when he comes against us with discouragement or fear or doubt or guilt.  We just draw back into a corner somewhere and let him beat us up.

You and I are not supposed to be punching bags for the devil; instead, we are supposed to be fighters.

Nowe the devil wants us to fight in the natural with everybody around us.  But God wants us to forget all the junk that Satan stirs up within us to get us riled up against other people.  Instead, He wants us to fight against the spiritual enemies who try to war over our lives and steal our peace and joy.     “Come against Satan when he is trying to get a foothold, and he will never get a stronghold.”    …Joyce Meyer
