“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” 2 Timothy 2:3-4 (KJV)
What totally frustrates the devil is when there is nothing he can do to get you off of God’s plan for your life. He can attack your body, and you only become stronger. He can cause you to suffer loss, and your love for God only grows deeper. He can attack your relationships, and it only makes you seek God even more. That resilience is the quality of a soldier. God has chosen you to be an unstoppable soldier for Him! Being a soldier doesn’t mean that you are numb to hurt or that you always feel brave. It doesn’t mean that you never face a challenge that makes you want to throw in the towel. It doesn’t mean that you never fall. It means that no matter what happens in your life, you choose from deep within to move forward in God.
Prayer: Father God, thank You for choosing me to be a soldier in Your great army. You have equipped me with everything I need to finish my race. I receive the help of Your Holy Spirit now. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
