Summary: You are suppose to win in life, but You can’t expect to win without a fight. There are enemies to your destiny, so you must get in the press.

Mr 5:27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his

garment.

Php 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus

Both of these scriptures deal with the thought, that in order to get what you desire you have to put forth some effort, you have to be willing to go against the current.

You have to have some old fashioned grit and gumption.

Let me clear something up for you:

Miracles don't Just happen because God is in a good mood

Miracles don't happen just because their needed

Miracles are not an accident nor are they just a supernatural sovereign act of God that just occurs for certain people in certain places at certain times.

No: Miracles come (where they're needed) yes (but only when they are desired and reached for) You have to catch a miracle.

*Jairus caught a miracle for his dead daughter when he threw his pride out and he came to Jesus

*Bartimaeus caught a miracle when he stopped Jesus with his unrestrained cries for mercy

*The Leper caught a miracle when he fell down at Jesus feet seeking his mercy and healing

*The syrophenician woman caught a miracle for her demon possessed daughter when she broke religious protocol and came to Jesus.

Mt 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force.

(The ones that win in life are the ones that are willing to fight for what they want.)

When the giant Goliath defied the children of Israel David Spoke up.

1Sa 17:32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and (fight) with this Philistine.

FIGHT

That word as it is used there is translated:

-fight to war, make war, overcome, prevail , do battle, to engage in battle, wage war

and my favorite definition. ( to eat, use as food).

It reminds me of the words of Joshua and Caleb speaking of the giants in their promised land (They are bread for us).

There are basically speaking two classes of Christians in the church

There are the Pro-active

There are the Re-active

Most Christians live very {re-active lives} they are always on the defensive re-acting to the attacks of the enemy.

Paul could never have been the Great Apostle he was by living a Re-active life.

If you learn anything from reading Paul’s writings it is that he was always the aggressor.

His entire ministry was on the front lines pushing into enemy territory.

He was always wanting to take the light into the darkness he was never content to just be comfortable and satisfied among other believers.

In Eph 6: 10-12 Paul speaks of the warfare of the believer, requiring a full out effort on our part.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
