Life is a continuous warfare. You are always involved in one battle or the other, whether you realise it or not. There is never a day in your life when you are not in a battle – whether it is a battle over your health, joy, peace, relationships, children, marriage, finances, crucial decision making or over your faith. As long as you are among the living, warfare will never cease: you must simply learn to fight, as we do not fight against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12).
The reason men fail in life is not because they are in a battle; they fail because of their unwillingness to learn to fight effectively. If Joseph had forfeited his integrity at Potiphar’s house, he would not have reached the throne. Likewise, had David been ignorant of the power of God available to him, he would not have confronted Goliath. But David knew that the battle belongs to the God he served, and was ready to do his part. He saw opportunity, not only for the name of the Lord to be glorified, but also for him to receive the rewards of winning.
Warfare is never a barrier, but a channel to your season of promotion. Warfare is your walkway to wonders. Battle is simply a bridge to a reward system. Every battle has a hidden reward. The emergence of warfare simply reveals that your promotion is imminent. Whatever battle you are in right now, see it as a bridge to your breakthrough. Hold on to your faith. Fight scripturally. Take every contrary thought captive by the Word of God. Then expect to emerge victoriously and to lay hold of the rewards for winning.
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12
