(1 Cor. 9:26) “I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:”
In this text Paul speaks of his Christian walk as one that’s dominated by running and fighting. However, in his Christian walk he doesn’t run and fight for the faith with uncertainty or ambiguity because he understands what he is fighting for. Hence, when the road gets tough Paul has the stamina to stay in the fight because he knows what he is fighting for. And this is where many Christians fail in their walk with Christ, when they don’t know what they are fighting for there is a propensity to quit when the way gets tough; there is a propensity to get out of the ring after a fight with the enemy and never return to battle. However, when you know what you’re fighting for, quitting is not an option! To give up on God is out of the picture! Christian leaders, family and friends can often encourage you to stay in the fight, they may even be able to provide you with some insight but ultimately whether you are going to remain in the chase; whether you plan to fight will be up to you…but you must know what and even who you’re fighting for.
God Bless You

Even as those who are newly saved are new creatures in Christ Jesus, with a new year comes new beginnings, new opportunities and new challenges. (Isa. 42:9) says “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: Before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Therefore, I declare in 2008 that those things which had you bound in 2007 will be broken and released from your life. I declare frustration-confusion-doubt-fear and unbelief to be gone; I declare spiritual and financial poverty to be gone. I declare rejection-self rejection and low self esteem to be broken. I declare that you walk in love-power and a sound mind. I declare protection, preservation and safety over your household. I speak peace over your household, peace over your children, peace in your relationships; I declare in 2008 that you would prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. I speak new beginnings in your relationship with God-family-friends and even the co-worker which seems to annoy you the most. I declare you to be blessed in the city and blessed in the field, you’re blessed in your going out and your coming in; I speak it in the name of Jesus, and it is so, Amen. Thus, with a new year comes new beginnings, walk in and receive what thus saith the Lord. Whatever happened to you in 2007 doesn’t have to plague you or dominate your life in 2008. Leave it in 2007 and begin to walk in the newness of where you are and declare your victory by faith in Christ Jesus. You will be what you declare to be.
God Bless You.
