The “Fight” is a long-standing journey that can leave us broken into a million little pieces. That journey includes a lot of components. Family and jobs are only the tip of the iceberg. Keeping ourselves balanced is a fight unto itself. Our challenge is to not lose the fight. We punch, we swing, we sway because we are trying to win. The problem is that the fight is not ours and it is fixed so that God, who’s fight it is, can WIN! Exodus 14:14 The New International Version says it like this “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."
Have you had, seen or experienced a child who is fighting to keep a dirty nose? As adults we know that is better for the child to have a clean nose. It keeps the congestion down through keeping the airway clear. It also keeps others from being “grossed out” by the overflow of mucus! The kid fights and it takes more time to fight than it does to get the nose clean. It is an unnecessary battle. All the child needed to do is be still. It would take less than a minute. It would be done, and they may even feel better.
Though our situations are sometimes uncomfortable, there are times when God is waiting for us to “be still.’ The fight is fixed. He’s cleared the way! We must open our eyes, stop struggling to find out that WE WIN!!
