Stand And Fight Like Men

Author: Emode Victor
A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Stand And Fight Like Men [06/05/2017]

Be strong, and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight. 1 Samuel 4:9. Read: 1 Sam 4:1-11

Apart from ignorance of God's word, another thing that can hinder the victory of a child of God is sin. God only fights for His children who are righteous in all their ways. He comes in when all hope is lost. Many make costly assumptions and one of which is  that God is with them simply because things are going smoothly for them. Even when many experience hardship, they never care to ask or find out the reason behind their ordeal. This is the case of the Israelites. When they were smitten by the Philistines, they thought it was because the Ark of God was not with them. They sent for the Ark, when the Philistines heard the voice of the children of Israel, they were sore afraid and said who shall deliver us from this God?

But they encouraged themselves to fight like men. For the sin in the camp of the Israelites, the Philistines prevailed. Sin robs you of your legal right and keeps victory far from you. Sin denies you what rightly belongs to you. You must earnestly contend for the faith and your salvation, lest you become a slave of the devil. The Philistines said, be strong and fight, lest you become a slave to Israel. In the same vain, you must fight to defend your salvation to avoid being a slave to the devil in this end time.

* Sin is a cancer that truncates and destroys men's good testimony, avoid it and stay holy
