fightTo do battle with another, to take up arms against an opponent; to clash, wrestle or struggle with another person. DTP From the Bible we also learn that we are in a spiritual warfare and that we must put on the full armour of God, fighting the good fight of faith on the side of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have daily battles that we must fight and Christ is there to help us overcome our enemies so we can gain the victory.The LORD shall fight for you, and ye Ex 14:14The LORD your God ..., he shall fight for you, Deut 1:30your enemies against whom ye fight.

fill / filledPack, load, stuff, satisfied, filled. DTP As disciples, we can be filled with the Spirit of God; He wants us to be filled and running over with His presence. Through prayer we need to ask God to fill us daily with His Spirit and power so that we can serve one another.Joseph commanded to fill their sacks Gen 42:25the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. Ex 40:34earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. Num 14:21the glory ... had filled the house 1 Kin 8:11 (2 Chr 5:14)Let my mouth be filled with thy praise Ps 71:8open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

filth / filthiness / filthyDirty, unclean, lewdness, rudeness, obscenity, offensiveness. DTP The disciple is to keep himself clean and pure before the Lord Jesus Christ. The idea of sanctification is the process of being made clean. We do this through prayer and studying the Word of God and then taking what we have learned and making the needed changes. We want to become white as snow!For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, Isa 28:8and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; Isa 64:6And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, Nah 3:6we are made as the filth of the world, 1 Cor 4:13let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of 2 Cor 7:1Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor Eph 5:4filthy communication out of your mouth. Col 3:8not greedy of filthy lucre; 1 Tim 3:3 (Tit 1:7)putting away of the filth of the flesh, 1 Pet 3:21not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. 1 Pet 5:2
find / foundTo look intently, to search with all possible resources, to seek after. To have looked for and sought something until it was located. Great rejoicing is often the result for the finder. DTP One can search both physically and spiritually. We need to go out and discover, locate, unearth or uncover that which we feel we need to find or to get back that which we have lost. We should always be looking to God for His presence and will for our lives and, as we do, He will reward our search. The disciple is to be a person who seeks after God in every area of their lives and, when they do, then God allows Himself to be found.but for Adam there was not found an help meet Gen 2:20Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Gen 6:8that I may find grace in thy sight. Gen 32:5if now I have found grace in thy Gen 33:10Or have found that which was lost, and Lev 6:3and be sure your sin will find you out. Num 32:23shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, Deut 4:29he hath lost, and thou hast found, Deut 22:3LORD grant you that ye may find rest, Ruth 1:9Why have I found grace in thine eyes, Ruth 2:10handmaid find grace in thy sight. 1 Sam 1:18have found the book of the law 2 Kin 22:8 (2 Chr 34:15)if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; 1 Chr 28:9they found written in the law which the LORD Neh 8:14LORD, and find the knowledge of God. Prov 2:5and those that seek me early shall find me. Prov 8:17whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor Prov 8:35Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, Prov 18:22Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, Isa 55:6am found of them that sought me not: Isa 65:1 (Rom 10:20)ye shall find rest for your souls. Jer 6:16ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall Jer 29:13weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Dan 5:27seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it Matt 7:7 receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; Matt 7:8 (Luke 11:10)He that findeth his life shall lose it: Matt 10:39and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matt 11:29the which when a man hath found, Matt 13:44when he had found one pearl of great price, Matt 13:46that he find it, ... rejoiceth more of that sheep, Matt 18:13coming suddenly he find you sleeping. Mark 13:36seek, and ye shall find; Luke 11:9go after that which is lost, until he find it? Luke 15:4Rejoice ... I have found my sheep which was lost. Luke 15:6and seek diligently till she find it? Luke 15:8For this my son ... was lost, and is found. Luke 15:24, 32Son ... cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8I find no fault in this man. Luke 23:4 (John 18:38)We have found the Messiah, which is, John 1:41shall seek me, and shall not find me: John 7:34, 36that a man be found faithful. 1 Cor 4:2we ourselves also are found sinners, Gal 2:17found in him, not having mine own righteousness, Phil 3:9he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: 2 Tim 1:18find grace to help in time of need. Heb 4:16whosoever was not found written in the book Rev 20:15
finger / fingersA limb or an extention of a hand; can be used for grasping, holding, feeling and pointing. DTP Both God and man have fingers showing how man has been created in the likeness of God. God often over time has used His finger to draw people's attention to something very specific that He wants us to see and learn.said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: Ex 8:19written with the finger of God. Ex 31:18 (Deut 9:10)I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, Ps 8:3teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. Ps 144:1he teacheth with his fingers. Prov 6:13Bind them upon thy fingers, write them ... thine heart. Prov 7:3the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity. Isa 58:9hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; Isa 59:3In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, Dan 5:5move them with one of their fingers. Mat 23:4 (Luke 11:46)if I with the finger of God cast out devils, Luke 11:20tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; Luke 16:24Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, John 8:6saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, John 20:27
finish / finished / finisherBring to, or come to, an end, to reach the end of a race, to get to the last point or final stage. DTP The disciple is in a race that has an end goal. We are encouraged by the Word to keep moving forward to the finish line, and not to give up or to be sidetracked by the things of this world. God's grace and the power of the Holy Spirit will give us the ability to finish all that the Lord has willed or planned for our lives.Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, Gen 2:1until thou hast finished all the work 1 Chr 28:20works which the Father hath given me to finish, John 5:36so that I might finish my course with joy, Acts 20:24he would also finish in you the same grace 2 Cor 8:6fought a good fight, I have finished my course, 2 Tim 4:7unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; Heb 12:2sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. James 1:15
finiteLimited, restricted, fixed, set, predetermined; a set time that has an end to it; man is known as a finite creature, limited in thought, action, and life span. This is compared to God who is the Supreme, Infinite and Perfect Being in Whom all things have their source, support and end.
