Fighting the Good Fight of Faith
In First Timothy 6:12, the Apostle Paul told Timothy, “Fight the good fight of faith.” And for as long as I can remember, my dad, Kenneth E. Hagin, taught me through example how to do that. I remember times when I was growing up and things were tough financially. Sometimes we didn’t have food in our kitchen cupboards. But never once did I see my father tell anyone we were in need. He always trusted the Lord to meet our needs, and God always came through for us.
As long as we live on this earth, at one time or another we are going to encounter trouble. Although adversity comes to all of us, people react differently to it. Some people try to solve the problem on their own. Others look to friends or family for help. Still others rely on the Lord. A good example of someone who always triumphed in adversity is David. And by looking at his life, we can learn how to come out of trouble victoriously
This has certainly been a year of turmoil for many. Some have lost jobs. Others have experienced family problems, health issues, or the loss of family members. During difficult times we all ask, “How are we going to survive in this challenging situation?” We begin to look at what we can do to recover.
