What does it mean to FIGHT for our dreams?

Recently, I was reading out of a short book from the Old Testament of the Bible. I was surprised by what jumped off of the page and inspired me.

“He who scatters (destroys - Vulgate) has come up before your face.

Man the fort!

Watch the road!

Strengthen your flanks!

Fortify your power mightily”

~Nahum 2:1 NKJV

There is a time to fight; to fight for our God-given dreams!

Almost always this is not a physical fight against another person, but an internal fight within ourselves.

Man - Do what we can in the natural - the practical

Watch - Be ready for what is coming - be prepared

Strengthen - Prepare our bodies - disciplined health

Fortify - Surround ourselves with what and who can help us - build relationships

Wow! What direction.

It really cannot be made any clearer.

We have our orders to fulfill the plans God has for us.

Let’s go for it!

Now, we can bENCOURAGEd, so that we can encourage others!
