Wednesday's Word of Encouragement
1a: to contend in battle or physical combat
2: to put forth a determined effort
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!
