Camp THEME 2020
👊Life is tough. Pain is prevalent. Anxiety is abundant, and the struggle is real. Whether you’re duking it out now or awaiting a trial yet to come, defeat can seem inevitable and hope a fleeting thought. That’s because we were all born into a battle.
🙏🏻 The opponent isn’t another individual, a people group, or any earthly threat for that matter. The Bible explains that even though we walk in the flesh, our real fight in life is “not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
🥊Like any competition or fight, it’s good to know the real enemy and the strategies being used by the opponent. The tactics used by evil to destroy Mankind are lies against all that God has said to be true. Typically, these lies begin as internal thoughts or external messages bombarded against humanity.
🙌The lies appear strong, but the truth is victorious, and the truth sets us free. The score in life may not look good, but the outcome is VICTORY! Jesus himself said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world!” Jesus loves us so much. He died in our place on the cross, defeating the enemy, and claiming VICTORY over the kingdom of darkness.
🤺The Bible tells us to fight the good fight of faith. It’s a good fight because the battle is the Lord’s, and our act of faith is believing that Jesus is enough. While we wait for that final day of meeting our Savior face to face, Jesus has given us His armor to wear so we can stand, rest in His protection, and overcome.
🏆With Jesus, we’re on the winning team. We don’t need to fight for VICTORY, but from VICTORY. In Christ we are no longer victims but victors “because He who is in you is greater than He who is in the world.”
🏋🏽♀️Come to Camp Shetek this summer and strengthen your faith to believe that Jesus is your VICTORY! Christ is for you. He is in your corner. In Him, You can finish the race and triumph over the troubles. For, “God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious VICTORY over everything!”
