TOPIC: Spiritual Stamina (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 14 July 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 90-95
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Galatians 6:7-10
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
MEMORY VERSE: “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” – Proverbs 24:10
Spiritual stamina is going with God all the way through.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
YOU SHALL NOT BE A CASUALTY IN THE BATTLE FIELD OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Stamina is the ability to sustain prolonged physical or mental effort. Spiritual stamina then, is the ability to stay in power with God. It is spiritual staying power. It is every activity of endurance that will lead you to total spiritual fitness. Proverbs 24:10 says, “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” Adversity is a difficult or unpleasant situation, and in this world Jesus told us that there will be tribulations, and a lot of horrible things too, but we should be of good cheers for He (Jesus) has overcome the world (John 16:33).

Because we face challenges every day, it is important that we work on our spiritual stamina every day. When we develop spiritual stamina, the false traditions of the world as well as our personal daily challenges will have little or no negative impact on our ability to endure in righteousness. We need spiritual stamina or staying power in order to stay true to our faith and calling through all the ups and downs in life.
Spiritual stamina is weathering through adverse conditions till its expiration. 2 Timothy 2:3 says, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” The life you live is a report card of your spiritual stamina. The way you do things reveals your strength spiritually. Spiritual stamina is revealed in different believers’ lifestyle such as prayer life, level of holiness, ability to resist temptation, brokenness, studying the Bible, fasting, tolerance, giving, offences, etc.
As Christians we are called to be long distance mountain marathon runners — not just short distance sprinters. Just as an athlete needs to build up his muscles and aerobic fitness, developing the strength and stamina for the endurance needed, so we need to stretch our faith, our devotion, our obedience and skills. Christians need to stretch minds and muscles, escape from comfort zones and persevere — keep on keeping on — fighting the good fight of faith.
The truth, beloved, is that the spiritual exercises that birth spiritual stamina have to be done consistently over an appreciable period of time for them to yield great results. That calls for discipline.
- O Lord, endue me with spiritual strength to be a doer of Your word, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, establish me in my walk with You; let Your good works show in my life to the glory of Your name, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, establish me in Your word; let Your word bear fruits in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- God of peace, sanctify me by Your word, for Your word is truth, in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, let my body, soul and spirit be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the name of Jesus.
- Let me be filled with the knowledge of Your word as the waters cover the sea, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrow of spiritual failure, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
