Fight Your Battles

“You are meant to fight your own battles.”

You are meant to fight your own battles.

The Apostle Paul said to Timothy, his protégé, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7).

Paul used the letter “I” three times in that statement. That means, he wasn’t referring to a group fight. But the personal struggles he had to go through in life. Clearly, Paul wasn’t the kind of Christian who ran away from his problems. Though he experienced a lot of travails, He fought really hard and eventually won every battle that the enemy brought his way. Isn’t it interesting that even though he was highly talented and anointed, life still hit him hard with challenges?

I don’t know what you are currently go through. Whatever it is, realize that your personal battles won’t go away until you fight to a standstill. Keep fighting.
