Life for the Lord is not something about which we can just say, "Well, I made that victory! I've won the battle and the war is over, and now I'm going to settle down and enjoy life!" Because we never have a victory without a battle, and there are some battles we have to keep fighting our whole lives until our dying day!
It's a battle every day--especially with our besetting sins--"the weights and sins that so easily beset us". (Heb.12:1) Some people seem to think they can get the victory once and for all over something and they'll never have another battle. But that's where the Devil is apt to test us the most, on our weak spot, our Achilles heel, our besetting sin, our greatest temptation! But the Lord always has the victory for us if we'll keep going for Him! He says, "My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in your weakness." (2Cor.12:9)
It's really thrilling to look back and see our own progress!--To look back down that rugged mountain road we've just come over and to see we're really getting somewhere! But it's even more exciting to look forward and up to heights we're soon to attain and views we're soon to thrill to if we keep fighting, climbing, winning and don't quit!--Amen?
