The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord. ~ Proverbs 21:31
Too often we rush into the fight with no regard of God's plan to deliver the victory. How many struggles have you faced without God - only to crawl back weak and beaten... begging for Him to rescue you?
When the temptations arise and the impulse begs you to fight that ugly habit or adversary, pause and do 3 things:
- Memorize today's verse, and speak it to yourself when the urge arises to launch
- Take a deep breath and ask God to go ahead of you
- Pray about your preparation and training to enter the "ring" that awaits.
