DEVOTIONAL - AN ENCOURAGING WORD

Prepare for Your Victory

“Timothy, my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words spoken about you earlier. May they help you fight well in the Lord’s battles. Cling to your faith in Christ” 1 Timothy 1:18-19a NLT

We often ask the question, what’s next?
 
At various times in my life I was literally lost and the only way that I found my way was to remind myself where I was going.
 
Today’s scripture is a reminder to Timothy of the prophetic words spoken over his life. Through these words Timothy was instructed to fight well. In other words, God’s prophetic words for Timothy’s life were not going to happen without a fight.
 
What has God spoken over your life? It will come to pass; however, you must fight for it.
 
Paul instructs Timothy how to fight. He tells him to not waste time in endless discussion on worthless subjects; for it will not help him to live a life of faith in God.” (1 Timothy 1:4) Instead, go back to what God already said, hold on to it, and allow God’s word to propel him to victory.
 
As we prepare for God’s victory for our life we must hold on to our faith, remind ourselves of God’s word for our life, and allow those words to be our compass.

“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:11 (ESV)
