Fight it!

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 (3:34 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

1 Tim 6:11-12 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

For the past few days our family has been fighting off various viruses, and I’m hoping we’re finally coming to the end of this bout of sickness. But it's causing me to reflect on the amazing way God has designed our bodies to combat these germs, with an immune system that can eliminate any intruder as soon as it penetrates.

While germs and physical illness are our battle in the flesh, our spiritual enemy is warring in the Spirit — relentlessly seeking to penetrate our spiritual defense system! He is seeking a place in us to encourage sin so he can entrench himself there and begin to spread spiritual disease and death into our lives.

Seeing how effectively God has designed our physical immune system, what can we learn in our spiritual battle to fight the good fight? The first lesson I see is "response time". As soon as that thought of jealousy, coveting, rebellion, lust, impurity, etc. enters our mind — we need to take notice! — and immediately take the thought captive, before it has an opportunity to grow and develop into spiritual illness.

We can all see the spiritual warfare really intensifying lately. More and more the Lord is calling for us to stand up and fight the good fight of faith in these last days. We must be mentally and spiritually awake, rise up at the first attack, take the battle to the enemy… and give him no place to reside! Amen.

    I just recently had a CT scan that praise God was normal.
    But this article caused me to think of how God looks into us.
    Just as the CT scan gives doctors a window into our bodies, God looks into our hearts and minds the same way.
    The Holy Ghost can drive spiritual viruses from our bodies if we consult and submit to Him.
    Yes our bodies are a work of an incredible Creator and His solution for our sin problem.
