Know What to Fight For

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which

God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus, Philippians 3:14

The poorest person in the world isn’t the one without money, but the one without a God-given vision. Vision requires faith—and focus. Unless you understand what’s worth fighting for, you risk: 1) Fighting the wrong battles. 2) Fighting at the wrong time. 3) Fighting when you shouldn’t be involved. 4) Fighting because you need to win in order to feel good about yourself. 5) Fighting even though the battle is already lost but your pride won’t let you accept it. The most important thing is: stay focused on the goal God has given you. John Mason says, ‘Destiny delayed is the devil’s delight.’ If Satan can’t defeat you outright, he’ll try to distract you with unimportant things, or disqualify you by getting you to make bad decisions. Either way, he wins and you lose. Just because something is good doesn’t mean it’s right for you. When your plate is full doing what God’s already given you to do, learn to say ‘no’ to everything else. Once you can do that, you free yourself from other people’s expectations and the need for their approval. Bear in mind also that ‘no’ doesn’t mean ‘never’; often it means ‘not now’. When you’re spread too thinly you become mediocre at everything and effective at nothing. When you try to fight on every front you wear yourself out and fail to win where it counts. Fighting a battle without spoils is like pouring water on a burning shack—unless somebody’s life is in danger it’s probably not worth it. So conserve your energy for when you have something really important at stake.

Prayer

Heavenly Father,

keep me focused and keep me from fighting the wrong battles.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
