Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional is from Billy Graham’s “Hope for Each Day”
Fight the Good Fight
Isaiah 54:17New King James Version (NKJV)
17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Make no mistake about it, there will be opposition in your life; there will be weapons formed against you, and they may be formidable and frightening. You will not go under; you will go through. The scripture says, “A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all” (Psalm 34:19).
When things get tough or things don’t go your way, keep your confidence up. The Bible says when you’ve done all you know how to do, just keep on standing strong. Keep praying, keep believing, keep singing songs of praise – even when adversity is strong against you. Keep fighting the good fight. If you do that, God promises to bring you out with the victory.
