Be strong/tighten up those muscles, get rid of the flab!    

#1. Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

Why be strong?  There is a devil out there ready to kill, steal, and destroy!  He's bullying you!  What you gonna do?

#2. 1 Peter 5:8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers[a] all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

Know what’s yours!  Hold on to what you got!

#3. 1 Corinthians 2:9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. 10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11 No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12 And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.

I've got faith fight in me!  Do you have faith fight in you?

#4. 2 Samuel 23:11 Next in rank was Shammah son of Agee from Harar. One time the Philistines gathered at Lehi and attacked the Israelites in a field full of lentils. The Israelite army fled, 12 but Shammah[a] held his ground in the middle of the field and beat back the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a great victory.

I want to talk to you about a man who became a warrior by hanging out with a man who was a warrior!  The man's name was Shammah.  He had been trained by David.  David was a warrior!  Shammah was trained to be a fearless warrior.  He knew he was empowered by the Spirit of God to put His power on display!

There was a plot of land with lentil on it that belonged to Israel.  Lentil is like small peas.  Lentil was food for the people of Israel.   The field was ripe for harvest. Problem was, the enemy wanted it!

The philistines gathered a troop and decided to take the land and the food that was on it.  The enemies seem to always want what’s ours.

All of the people ran from the enemy.  An entire army ran, except 1 man!   Sometimes you may have to stand alone!  Stand!

Shammah couldn't run!!  He stood and fought! He was not giving up his stuff!
Shammah took on up to 150 men!

Get off of that couch, get off of that bed, stop complaining and FIGHT BACK!  Take the sword of the spirit which is the word of God and quench every fiery dart of that wicked one! The word is your weapon!

He had his mind made up that he wanted to keep what was his!  The enemy positioned themselves for a battle, but Shammah positioned himself for a slaughter!  He stood right in the center of that pea patch and defended what was his!.  Everything that is mine I want!  The word of God lets me know what’s mine and I am willing to fight for it!    

He knew what had been freely given to them of God.  The scripture says: and the Lord wrought a great victory.  You've got power!
Quit just watching the battle! Fight!  If you fight, you will win! The prayer of faith, Your confession & intercession is your victory!  Fight!
When trouble comes, FIGHT the good fight of faith for your family, your marriage, your children, your health, your money, your business, your ministry, that house, that car, your jobs, and all that is yours!

It's time to fight back!  Pull out your sword and fight!

Fight for the anointing that's on your life.  It is the anointing that destroys the yoke.  Don't waste time on negative people!

Don't allow the devil to rob you of what is yours through Jesus Christ!  Stand your ground!  confess that word!
