I can do everything through him who gives me strength”  [Philippians 4:13]

The flow of the Holy Spirit becomes practical but our participation require three things.  Decision making—disciplined lifestyle—and determined faith that just won’t quit!

Circumstances and situations may seem to be working in opposition to you, nothing is working and you would like to quit but God says, “don’t quit”—I’ll make a way where there is no way, ”No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face.  All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.”  [1 Corinthians 10:13 The Message] ,

In the 14th Century, the Emperor Tamerlane [descendant of Genghis Kahn] was badly defeated in battle.  As he lay hidden in a barn, enemy troops scoured the countryside looking for him.  Suddenly he noticed an ant trying to push a kernel of corn that was many times bigger than he, up over a wall.  Sixty-nine times the ant tried and failed, but on the seventieth attempt he succeeded.  Leaping to his feet. Tamerlane said, “If you can do it, I can too.’  That day he changed his outlook, reorganized his forces, went back and soundly defeated the enemy.

Every man has a story—the difference between victory and defeat depends upon the ‘outlook’ or perspective of whose strength is used to fight the battle—the fight of faith will win every time when strength is found in the Lord Jesus Christ!
