Stylishly Inspired family it’s been a minute!
I hope everyone is doing well and may the grace and love of God be upon each and every one of you.
Okay! I know you are wondering where I have disappeared to for the past months. I actually have been working on myself and my relationship with God. So, as God forgives, forgive me also for being so absent. But best believe I am going to be posting regularly from now on and I hope someone will get blessed from the posts to come.
Let’s jump straight in!
Have you ever had those moments where no matter how much you try and work hard things just don’t seem to work out? Well, this is the exact position I was in, feeling like no matter what I did, I just kept failing. If I’m being honest, I felt like if this was my course in life then what was the point of trying and moving forward. So I started living life with the mindset that there was no point in trying my hardest if I was just going to end up failing. With that being said, allow me to please encourage someone today if you are in this very position.
To win in life you’ve got to FIGHT! Yes, nothing comes easy or work free, you have to fight.
1. You have to FIGHT yourself
This was one concept I struggled with and still am. Knowing myself and the person I am, it was difficult to confront myself. You can either hate the person you see in the mirror or love them. I hated the person I saw, and I didn’t want to see her, I didn’t want to confront her. So, I dug my feeling up in a big hole and continued on with my life. NOT the best idea. TRUST ME! “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2). Even God warned us that every day we need to FIGHT ourselves and our minds. Negativity formulated from your own mind will always bring you down, you need to learn to overcome that negativity. Personal development is the key to winning all battles. “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;” (1 Peter 1:18)
2. You have to FIGHT the world
No doubt there is a lot of negativity in this world and people will try and pull you down from all corners. Telling you, you can’t do this and you can’t do that, you are doing this wrong and you should quit now. Let me tell you, even God said not to worry about those people “The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.” (Proverbs 29:25). Just trust in him and believe that God will get you through “Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust, And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” (Psalms 40:4). He will deliver you from all your troubles (Psalms 50:5).
3. You have to FIGHT spiritually
Yes, you have spiritual battles to fight as well. Don’t think the devil is out here happy that you’re happy. You have to fight spiritual battles and you have to stand your ground. Thankfully God gave us his armour to fight and prevail with (Ephesians 6:14-20) and he also has promised never to leave nor forsake us. “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
Remember in the time of battle you are never alone, God will always be at your right hand seeing you through.
Lastly, Fight the good fight of faith! (1 Timothy 6:12), Pull yourself up and decide today not to be in the position you are in. Build up courage, build up a fighting spirit and FIGHT!
I hope that all of you from now on FIGHT and win your battles until we meet again, Stay blessed warriors of Christ!
