“Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life…let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.” (Proverbs 4: 23; 25)
And in the midst of the fight, I’m trusting God’s timing and plans.
“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever—do not abandon the works of your hands.” (Psalm 138:8)
Another fight is putting in the daily work toward a bigger dream or goal. It is easy to get discouraged in the toil of the day to day and ask God when is my breakthrough? But God is developing us in the day to day.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1: 2-4)
So let us not give up the race when we’re so close to the finish line!
