We are in a day when more than ever we are going to need to enter into a lifestyle of faith and live our entire lives accordingly. Things in the world around us are continually growing worse. However, it was for times like this that Paul told Timothy years ago to"Fight the good fight of faith."

"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."  (1 Tim 6:12 NKJV)

What does it mean to"fight the good fight of faith?" Fighting the good fight is a matter of maintaining a good confession. All too often we allow life's circumstances to put words in our mouths that are contrary to what God has spoken over us. The truth is that God has called us to live differently than that. God wants you and me to speak in line with His Word. When we maintain a good report, or as I sometimes call it, "A God Report" (speaking things that are in agreement with His Word over us), we are taking one of the key steps to fighting the good fight of faith.

This is really important because if we want to please God we are going to have to walk by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God (see Hebrews 11:6).

Maintaining a "God Report" will help us to keep our eyes off of what things look like around us and help us to put things in the right perspective, the perspective of God’s Word. This is the fight that we have, staying in faith means not just accepting what we see but looking to God’s word to find out what He sees and choosing to speak and live by that.

So no matter what you are facing today remember that God has a good plan and he sees you as an overcomer.

In the face of circumstances—fight the good fight, maintain a"God Report".
