Fight For It

When He gives you a new revelation of His relationship with you, He will empower you to experience it.

When God gives you a new vision for your life, He will equip you to live it.

But new visions and new revelations will always come with a fight.

Whether it is the resistance of your flesh or the stubbornness of old mindsets, you will have to fight for what God has shown you and He will arm you for that as well.

“He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:34-35‬ ‭NIV‬‬

My prayer for you today is that you would know His love as He pours His strength into you.

I pray that you would know His peace as you lean on Him.

I pray that you would rest in God’s grace as you walk by His guidance.

I pray that you would trust Him with the future and focus simply on the task before you.

I pray that you would be released from the restlessness within you as you receive a new determination to go forward in faith.

You are stronger than you know because you know where your strength comes from and whose Right Hand sustains you.

You have been equipped to change.

Pick your weapons and fight for it.

Stubborn

Change doesn’t occur without courage.

It takes a special kind of stubbornness to start a new thing in your life, to change the course of it.

A stubbornness to keep going against the odds and swim against the current.

Life in Christ means that you are being called upon to be a pioneer. He is calling you to be the first in your family to stay married, to break the cycle of unhealthy habits or to break the cycle of emotional or physical abuse.

But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. It won’t be long now, he’s on the way; he’ll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:32-39‬ ‭MSG‬‬

God is asking you to be a change maker and to be stubborn about it.

Be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods. Jesus never did the same miracle twice. Each one was different and unique.

Be creative, use what God has given you and fight for change. Change worth having is worth fighting for.

Go ahead – be stubborn and be courageous today.
