Eat Your Spinage Before The Fight

Eat Your Spinage Before The Fight…

As a child, I watched Popeye, a one-eyed smoking sailor with a speech impediment. If you saw one Popeye, you knew the basic plot for all of them. He gets beaten up until finally he eats his spinach, and then he triumphs.

You have to wonder, doesn’t it make more sense to eat your spinach at the beginning, before the fight? But no, he would always wait until he could just barely get the can of spinach open.

As believers we make the same mistake. We wait until we are in the middle of warfare before deciding to fight. We live defensively. But champion fighters never do that. They don’t wait to be in the middle of the fight to figure out how to fight.

They train for the battle. God didn’t call us to live defensively, but offensively. That’s the way you win. Don’t wait to be tempted or until your back is against the wall to fight the enemy.

Live so your back is never against the wall. Put on the full armor of God and be victorious, and you won’t end up being beaten up like Popeye.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11

Don’t let the circumstances of the day catch you off guard! Let the Word of God be spiritual nourishment and protection for you today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
