Wow. Sometimes you just gotta fight and scratch and claw your way through the oppression and confusion and not take no for an answer until God shows up! Yes, we succeed and are empowered by Grace — but our relationship to His Grace is not a passive one:

“The kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” (Matthew 11:12)

“You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:36)

“Fight the good fight of the faith.” (1 Timothy 6:12)

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” (1 Peter 5:8-9)

So fight and keep fighting!  Never give up!  If you never quit, you never lose!

And if you’ve quit already, now is a great time to repent and ask Him for forgiveness, so that you can be restored and moving forward again!  Today is the day for restoration and breakthrough!
