YOU ARE A SOLDIER OF CHRIST
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Friday, 18th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(2 Timothy 2:3-4)
“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.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
Soldiers are often admired for their courage, resilience and sacrificial living. Their call to defend their nation in battle often necessitates their leaving behind every personal affair to bring back victory. In our text today, Apostle Paul reminds us of how we ourselves are soldiers, pointing our attention to the need for utmost focus on our assignment as soulwinners.
As believers, we are constantly at war; pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations, taking new territories for our God by propagating His righteousness everywhere we go. Therefore, if we must return to our Master with songs of victory on our lips, we must then fight to keep ourselves from being enslaved to any pursuit not in line with our assignment.
You are a soldier of Christ so you must prioritize the agenda of your kingdom. And this agenda is reaching out to the lost and bringing them to salvation. Therefore, eliminate excesses and things that may distract or slow you down, and commit the best part of your time and resources into the actualization of that order. Halleluyah!

Let’s pray for Paraguay 🇵🇾…
The Roman Catholic Church has long dominated the spiritual and political life of Paraguay. Although it admirably opposes corruption and immorality, there is also much superstitious traditionalism. Paraguay has never had a true spiritual awakening, and just a few have a living relationship with Christ.
🙏🏼We are praying for mighty move of God’s spirit upon the land that the people will see the light and encounter the Lord.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER: Dear Father, help me to commit myself to the furtherance of the kingdom of God in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
