The Battle of Life
The Lord will go forward like a warrior. He will arouse his zeal like a man of war, he will utter a shout, yes he will raise a war cry, he will prevail against His enemies. Isaiah 42:13
We aim to become men who are efficient, who are effective, whose aim is accurate, who multiplies power in his life, who frustrates the enemy, who doesn’t win the battle for appearances in life but actually wins the battles of life. One of the men most highly respected in battle is the sniper. He is efficient, he is effective, his aim is accurate, he multiplies power for his team, he frustrates the enemy and he’s lethal for his cause.
Do you know what the world needs? God’s men, who are efficient for God and effective for God. Their aim and focus is on God, they multiply spiritual power inside of their life. They frustrate the enemy and advance the cause of loving God and loving people. Every man wants to be on target but not every man understands the battle to stay on target. As we described the sniper, he calibrates, he selects targets, he eliminates opposition, he reloads, he re-acquires, he advances and then he starts the process over again, depending on what theater of battle he finds himself in.
In order to win the battles of life as a man, we need to do the same thing. We need to calibrate our vision, we need to select goals to shoot for, and we need to eliminate obstacles to progress in our relationship with God and with people. Let’s reload and keep advancing in the individual battles of our issues and circumstances.
Thank you, Father, for the want to that you provide.
