Trained by God
“Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.” – Psalm 37:5-6
No fighter enters the octagon without the proper teaching and training. If an untrained person stepped into the octagon, they wouldn't stand a chance. They’d quickly have to tap out.
Yet, too many people approach life and marriage without the proper training. They don’t take the time to be trained by God through His Word and instructions. They allow the challenges to overcome them, and before they know it, their lives have been put in a choke hold.
If we are to live the life God has intended, we must follow the training He has already given us. We must commit our ways to Him and trust Him. By doing so, we will be able to break those choke holds that attempt to make us tap out of the life God has for us. And we’ll emerge from the octagon victorious!
Ask God to give you the fortitude to break through any choke holds that might have you in their clutches today.
Identify one area that has you on the verge of tapping out. It could be relationally, occupationally, financially, or spiritually. Commit this area to God today and let Him show you how to defend against the attacks.
