I have several friends and family members that are going through a challenging time right now. I pastor two churches, and in both of them, there is a long list of problems that our members are facing. Anything from sickness, marital, depression, financial, and the list goes on. It’s evident that the enemy is working harder than ever to try and discourage God’s people. I’m not saying the devil is causing these things to happen, because I don’t believe he has that kind of power. However, I do believe that he has the ability to torment and taunt us when we’re going through a trial.
I wish I could gather everyone that I know personally is going through something and encourage them at one time. Even though I’m a preacher, I wouldn’t preach a sermon. I would just simply say, DON’T LOSE YOUR WILL TO FIGHT.” I feel like that says it all. That statement really isn’t hard to explain. The minute you drop your hands, turn around and give up, it’s soon going to be over.
You have to fight to stay encouraged.
You have to fight for your marriage.
You have to fight for your family.
You have to fight for your ministry.
You have to fight for your health.
You have to fight for your financial freedom.
You have to fight for your mental well-being.
You have to fight to keep your relationship with God.
You have to fight for your dream.
You have to fight to keep the faith.
Well, I said I wouldn’t preach a sermon, but here I go. I want you to know that nothing you have will remain unless you fight for it. Also, nothing you had will ever come back unless you fight for it. Stop expecting the ones around you to fight for you. Some battles you can only fight alone. Your friends can cheer you on, but at the end of the day, this is your struggle. Whatever you do,
DON’T LOSE YOUR WILL TO FIGHT!!!
