Choose Your Battles

Choose Your Battles..

George Washington was not only America’s first president but the victorious general of the American Revolution. Yet, most people don’t realize that Washington spent much of the war not fighting or advancing – but running away.

Why? It was because he knew that he was in no position to win. And if he fought those battles which were a losing proposition, he would end up losing his army and thus losing the war. So he waited until the right time and the right battle to fight. And he ended up winning the war.

So too, the enemy wants you to fight the wrong battle – to fight self-centered battles, to strive with others, to spend time defending yourself, to strive after things of this world which have no importance in the age to come. He knows that when you fight these battles, you’re guaranteed to lose the war.

Learn from Washington – you don’t have to fight every battle, in fact, you have to not fight every battle. You can let go and withdraw so that you’ll end up being victorious and winning the war!!
The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord. Proverbs 21:31

What are you fighting today that perhaps the Lord wants you to stop. Let go and let God fight your battles, because He will be victorious.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
