God has a purpose for your life,
a place for your gifts to flourish and people whose lives will be changed by God’s work through you.
You are going to have to fight for it.
If your life is to have any eternal impact, you have a target on your back and battle before you.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Ephesians 6:10-12 NIV
If the enemy is trying to stop you,
you can bet it is because God has purpose for you.
A purpose that is bigger than you.
A purpose that can only be done by the power of God in you.
A purpose that is worth fighting for.
The first step towards living in your purpose in God is to recognize that you are entering a war.
The second step is to run to God.
God is not expecting you to fight without Him, on the contrary- He is prepared to train you, equip you and go out with you.
If discouragement is bearing down on you, don’t quit- fight!
Fight for God’s purposes in you,
Fight for the place He has given you,
Fight for the people who will be impacted by you.
Don’t quit, fight.
