Sometimes we come across a great idea to implement and carry out. But, somewhere during the process, we hit a snag and the whole operation stops. At some point, we realize that we’ve got to finish the job! Steven Furtick, with Elevate Church, shares a powerful perspective that we must understand, not only in these moments but in our fight against the devil’s schemes. “We’ve got to finish the job!”
“He (Jesus) didn’t just defeat sin; He destroyed it. Jesus didn’t just die to deliver us from death; He died so that we might reign in life!” If we’re enduring a fight in our life, we must remember that God is on our side and He fights our enemies. Furtick recounts the reality of David’s battle against Goliath and how the outcome contradicted the onset. “Let’s don’t just survive the struggle. We’ve got the enemy on the run, now let’s take his sword… and finish the job…David went into the battle without a sword, but he left the battle with one, cause he took what was coming against him and God used it to deliver him!”
When we look at what Paul wrote about this, it tells us what we must set our minds on.
”Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:5-6
This is a powerful truth that we all must embrace knowing that we will fight against the attacks of darkness. Be greatly encouraged in your walk with the Lord as you fight, boldly against the schemes of the Devil, and so much more.
