Fighting. We all might know a thing or two about this subject ; I know I do. Although, fighting isn’t always just a physical altercation or a disagreement with someone,but it could be a fight with many different things.
•There is fights between flesh and spirit
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
It’s so easy yet we make it so hard . Why do we do that? Because we are human! That’s why we need to walk in the spirit ! As Christians we set ourselves up way too much! Putting things that will only feed our flesh in front of us then wondering why we’re still struggling. Yes it might feel impossible but ask God for the strength because we don’t have it in us ! Don’t think you can fight sin ! You need God on your side ! Whichever side you feed more is the side that will conquer the other , feed your spirit !
Which takes us right into the next example:
•Fighting sin and temptation
James 1:14 But every man is tempted,when he is drawn away of his own lust,and enticed.
Don’t think you’re the only one ! The devil will tempt you all the days of your life , that will not change. Although, your walk and your spirit can change and get stronger , and that is what can change the outcome of when you’re tempted. Don’t let temptation trick you into thinking you will never be able to escape sin,with God all things are possible .
•There is a fight between what God wants to do in your life and what you think is going to be done in your life
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;and lean not unto thine own understanding .In all thy ways acknowledge him,and he shall direct thy paths.
Are you fighting the change God wants to do in your life? Are you scared of losing certain things ?
Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man,if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Yes , with the Christain life comes many sacrifices, you will have to give up so many things, but in return comes so many blessings . God gave his only son , who paid the price for us so we could go to Heaven, and yet were debating on things we know are wrong . Why? Because we’re human and we are sinners . Then God shows us his amazing grace and love, and it makes it all worth fighting for. It brings strength for today and hope for tomorrow . Listen, I don’t know what you’re going through, but I can tell you the only way you can fight what you’re going through, and that’s on your knees praying to God . That’s the real fight, where it really matters, that’s when the real strength comes in. Just stop trying to fight your battles and give it to God! It took many long nights, of nothing but tears to realize that I do not have the power to change one thing on my own. So don’t put yourself through that, the same way you would vent and pour out your tears to your best friend, do that to God . I promise you He loves and cares for you way more than your friend could ever have the power to and He can change anything . He is God.
