Is there something you should be fighting for??

Is there anything going on in your life today that you should be fighting for and aren't? Or maybe you are getting tired of the fight.
I don't mean physically fighting - I don't condone that :-) I mean taking a stand in saying "I'm not doing that because...", "I'm not accepting that report. God's word says...." etc.

Ephesians 6:12 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.

I know for me I recently had to take a stand and it was hard to stay strong to what I knew was right, but it was worth it. My stand took me to my knees and that is the best place when you are "fighting" for something. Getting in the presence of God and reminding Him of HIS word because HE is faithful to do what He says He will do. Don't let the circumstances around you dictate what you believe or even feel. Keep the word in you to change your thinking and "stand and fight"!

In Ephesians 6 in vs.13-18 it gives us what we need to do to fight.
  • 13.
  • Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
  • 14.
  • Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
  • 15.
  • and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
  • 16.
  • In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
  • 17.
  • Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
  • 18.
  • And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

You don't have to do it alone and if you are I encourage you to email me or leave a comment and I will be in prayer for you and with you.

Be blessed in your Journey!
