a battle or combat; any contest or struggle:
verb (used without object), fought, fight·ing.
to engage in battle or in single combat; attempt to defend oneself against or to subdue, defeat, or destroy an adversary.
to contend in any manner; strive vigorously for or against something:
This life is a series of battles, and at the core of every battle is a struggle between light and dark. Often, it is the choice between which wolf to feed-the good wolf or the bad wolf.
As I go through this daily battle of choosing light over dark, positive over negative, love over judgment, I slip a lot. But I get back up and try again, because I will not lose the overall fight.
I will keep fighting, and not just for good vs. evil. I will fight for all the desires of my heart.
There are those who are against us. We don't see them, but they are all around us.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world..." (Ephesians 6:12)
"They that be with us are more than they that be with them." (Kings 6:16)
We have many on our side trying to help us win!
And so we must fight-fight with our thoughts, our words, our daily habits, our determination, and our commitment to God.
As we look back on our lives, we see the different times that we had to fight for something: our health, our marriage, our children, our friendships, our peace, our dreams, our faith, and we know that we are strong.
We are made strong. We are made to fight, and we are made to win.
And the winning comes from Christ, He who Won it all!
