Memorise: I therefore so run, not as
uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that
beateth the air: 1 Corinthians 9:26
Read: 1 Corinthians 9:25-27
And every man that striveth for the
mastery is temperate in all things.
Now they do it to obtain a corruptible
crown; but we an incorruptible. 1
Corinthians 9:25
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;
so fight I, not as one that beateth the
air: 1 Corinthians 9:26
But I keep under my body, and bring
it into subjection: lest that by any
means, when I have preached to
others, I myself should be a castaway.
1 Corinthians 9:27
Bible in one year: Numbers 25-27
“And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me,
I pray thee, wherein thy great strength
lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be
bound to afflict thee.”
Judges 16:6
If you want to bring down your enemy
and your focus is on an area where he
is strong, it may take you quite a
while to get him. Usually, the enemy
focuses on the weaknesses of those
he wants to get. In the game of
boxing, the same is true. If you are
planning to take on an opponent, you
will immediately commence detailed
enquiry on the fellow. You would want
to have video recordings of previous
fights he has had. You will want to
also know if he has ever been
wounded in a fight before and the
exact location on his body. Once you
get this scar, your focus will be how
to reopen the wound through
concentrated heavy blows. If you can
do this, you will secure cheap victory.
No wonder Paul was successful in his
battles against the kingdom of
darkness. In 1 Corinthians 9:26, Paul
“I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;
so fight I, not as one that beateth the
Just as the devil studies you in order
to identify your weaknesses before
drawing out his game plan, so also
must you study the devil and his
cohorts to identify their weaknesses
and limitations so as to know how to
contain them. Know that your
enemies have weak points too! They
have scars from battles they fought
and lost to believers of every age. If
you know these weaknesses, they will
hardly take you unawares. To discover
these, search the scriptures regularly.
Carefully study the different times the
enemy tempted people but failed.
Also find out how they succeeded in
tempting others who fell into
temptation. One weakness of your
enemy is that even though he can
mobilise his forces to besiege his
target for a period of time, God does
not allow him to sustain that situation
of siege forever. Satan may be patient
but he does not have the ability to
sustain that patience for too long. This
is why you must not just resist him,
but continue to resist him until he
tires. You can wear out your enemy!
In a temptation or a trial situation,
never give up until the tempter gives
up. Every time he tempts you on that
situation, repeatedly say No to him. If
you continue to say No, God will give
you more strength, and before long,
you will be triumphant.
If you can study your enemies very
well, you will know how to defeat
them repeatedly
