What are you fighting for? Is it worth fighting for?
I’ve learned in this life that there will be many battles and struggles. I’ve also learned that having someone to help you get through your struggles make it a little easier to handle. Don’t mess around and have the Spirit of the living God within you…honey, that’s THREE people fighting together; and as the scripture says below, three working together, is hard to break:
“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT
So then, if we are confident that the Holy Spirit of God has taken residency in our lives, then why are we so quick to claim defeat in this spiritual battle?
What did you do before Jesus entered your life? Didn’t you fight?
Whatever happened to Him being greater in us than what’s in the world? And when will we begin to believe and operate in this?
“But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” 1 John 4:4 NLT
Let me be the first to admit, that when I hear of horrible situations or when I am the main character of the story, and my storm is all around me, immediately my heart races and my initial reaction is almost always a “panic” attack.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Let me ask again: What are you fighting for? Is it a good fight? While fighting are you fighting in faith? Because without it, you won’t win.
- Your relationship with your children is worth fighting for.
- Your relationship with your parents is worth fighting for.
- Your relationship with your siblings is worth fighting for.
- Your marriage is worth fighting for.
- Your anointing is worth fighting for.
- The most important relationship that you will ever have- your relationship with Jesus Christ, is worth fighting for.
Jesus fought for you! Not only did he fight, He died, because He said you were worth it and some of us have the audacity to give him some (not all) of us when it’s convenient.
Don’t devalue your worth! Don’t devalue your relationships. Don’t devalue your commitments. Most importantly do not devalue the price Jesus paid for our freedom from bondage. You are worth fighting for and the favor of God and His protection is worth the fight.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.” 2 Timothy 4:7 NLT
