Topic: The Fighter’s Spirit [Monday September 18, 2017]
Scripture: Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him. 1 Samuel 16:18.
Thought For The Day: The fighting spirit is the spirit that runs after lions while others run from them.
Previously, we identified passion for God’s presence as one of the secrets of attracting God’s presence. We saw the passion of David and how God was attracted to him through his deep longing and passion for God’s Presence.
Furthermore, we also identified a life of prayer, fasting and worship as vital ingredients in generating passion for God.
To attract the Anointing of God on a person’s life, developing a fighter’s spirit is another key.
From our anchor scripture, David was called a man of war by the servants of Saul when there was no record of the war he had fought at that time. This was because he already had a fighting spirit in him even when there was no war to fight.
The fighting spirit is the spirit that does not give up on an issue; it is the spirit that runs after lions when others run from them. It is the spirit that lives in the realm of risk.
When you have this spirit, what people fear is what you dare. When God sees a fighter, He releases the anointing because one key purpose of the mantle is to handle battles.
Remember this: The fighting spirit is the spirit that runs after lions when others run from them.
- Develop a fighter’s spirit.
Make up your mind not to give up on an issue until you see a turnaround or have a breakthrough.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the fighter’s spirit. Help me never to give up on any issue, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
