How to face your challenges head on & deal with them forcefully & aggressively.

Under qualified because they have not learned doctrine, or because doctrine is not their life, or because they have branched out into things that are distractions to learning the Word of God.
Under qualified because they have refused to take advantage of the wisdom of those men who have gone before them and the experiences they have learned, (LUK 16:10-12).
This includes such things as calling on people or personality approach to people, the visiting of the sick, running around performing X number of good deeds a day.
This takes a great deal of time, and disqualifies the individual for his purpose, his objective in being a pastor, which is the communication of B. D.
Over-qualification has become to me, not only a very common word, which I’ve heard many times, but it has come to mean lack of motivation.
While you may be overqualified when you go into many churches today, you are not overqualified in the plan of God for you can never learn enough doctrine.
HEB 11:6, But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
HEB 11:6, But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].
DEU 29:29, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.”
One of which is going against the grain, not following the herd and, standing tall in the difficult times of life.
If you’re going to live in victory you’re going to have to learn how to face your challenges head on and deal with them forcefully and aggressively.
They run from anything that makes them uncomfortable instead of facing the issues and dealing with them, and so instead they just take the easy way out and go down the path of least resistance.
For many believers God puts a dream in their heart as implied
ECC 3:11, He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart,
Sometimes the enemy can be
MAT 10:36, “a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”
Sometimes the enemy can be Satan and the fallen angels,
1TI 5:14; 1PE 5:8.
Sometimes the enemy can be the reversionist, though used by Satan, is the enemy of both God Satan and the advancing believer.
Sometimes the enemy can be the carnal believer who becomes a temporary enemy of God by being out of fellowship, ROM 8:7-8.
Sometimes the enemy can be the reversionist who is called the “enemy of the cross,”
PHI 3:18, because he doesn’t treat other believers on the basis of our Lord’s accomplishments on the Cross.
A direct rejection of
2CO 5:16, Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.
They face some kind of opposition and instead of standing strong they just give up and say this must not be God’s will for me.
