There are times when I get up in the morning feeling the weight of everything on my shoulders. There are times in which I feel as if I have so much burden to carry. I understand when people write to me and say “Pastor Ran, I can’t take it anymore”. I have learned one thing in life, is to cast my burdens unto Jesus for He cares for me. I know that Jesus also cares for you and He is able to take away the yoke and burdens over your shoulder.
As ministers of the gospel, we engage in numerous spiritual battles everyday. These battles are not fought with sticks and swords but are fought with the word of God. This is why I always start my day with the word of God. The ReadnLive is a way of helping you start your day with God. Everyday that you start with God is guaranteed to be a good day.
The Apostle Paul was the spiritual father of a young Pastor called Timothy. He had received several letters from Timothy regarding his work in the ministry. Timothy might have felt that he had too much on his shoulders. The burden might have been too much for him to bear. Here is what the Apostle Paul said.
1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and also did confess the good confession before many witnesses.”
This is very powerful. Paul says Timothy must fight the good fight of faith. It is not a fight against your boss or your colleague. It is a fight of faith. Paul further explained what it is, He says it is the good confession that Timothy confessed before many witnesses. Timothy may have had some bad experiences, but Paul says when he fights this fight of faith, he must focus on those good confessions. The Doctors may have given you a bad
The Doctors may have given you a bad report, don’t open your mouth and repeat what the Doctors said. Declare that you are healed. Confess the good confession. You will not die, you shall live to declare the goodness of God.
Your company may have terminated your contract. Instead weeping and mourning, celebrate your promotion and declare that you are working again. Angels have been sent to look for you the best job. They will only move to action if you maintain the good confession about your life.
When faced with challenges, don’t look outside, look inward. The greater one lives inside of you. You can bring out whatever you desire from with you. The Bible says greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world.
1 John 4:4 – “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
You are BIG and they are small. You lead and they follow. The Lord has open doors for you that no man/woman can shut.
Pray this prayer aloud: Father, I thank you because the battle is over for me. The greater one lives inside of me and He has made my body His abode. I will overcome every obstacle that is before me. I am destined for divine success this year in the mighty name of Jesus.
