How Do You Fight Your Battles?

 

I love worship music – all different kinds.  Music that points my focus in the direction of an awe-inspiring Creator simply moves me. In fact, music makes me FEEL more deeply than many things. It’s part of my therapy regimen. 😉 

I’m listening to one of my newest favorites – Fight My Battles by Josh Baldwin at Bethel Church. It’s a simple mantra, and I’m lost in it. I’m letting it penetrate every particle in my body. It helps me keep right in the forefront of my mind that perspective matters.  

Who’s perspective do I have? Mine? Or God? Spirit? Love?

“It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You….. This is how I fight my battles.”

I’m not into fighting, not in the sense of violence. I’m a peacemaker to the T.  

I believe we can address most “issues” in life without anger or violence – or passive aggressiveness.

How can we fight our battles?

Battles like conflict, grief, anxiety, relationship issues, health issues, worldly craziness, the lusts of the flesh, finance issues, substance abuse, etc.

How can we fight?

“It might look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You.”

THIS KNOWLEDGE.

THIS REVELATION.

This is how I fight my battles, knowing that the POWER that backs everything is surrounding me…is before me, behind me, beside me, inside me, working in me, through me, flowing, breezing, working, molding, equipping, moving….

Spirit, supernatural presence available to me simply by my recognizing that this is surrounding me. God in me. Me in God. Love in me. Me in Love.

And, of course, faith.

Faith is believing what we cannot see with these natural eyes. Faith is believing there’s something greater. Some omnipresent “something”. Some living force that my consciousness can tap into. Some power that I can grab hold of and trust that I am supported…That the Universe supports me even when all hell is breaking out…when arrows are flying toward my head, toward my heart…. I am supported.  

And in the grand scheme of things, I am well. It is well with my soul.

This is how I fight my battles.

Closing my eyes. Tapping into the living Christ conscious kingdom there. Choosing to believe in something greater than my “self”. Remembering to see with eyes of faith. Trusting that I don’t have to do it all alone.  That I’m part of something bigger.

I may not understand it all, but that’s alright.

Life’s a mystery, ya’ll, and maybe we should just be alright with that.

What are you battling dear one? How are you fighting?

Be still in God, my loves. Know that you are indeed surrounded. 

I am made in the likeness of Divine Being (God) and therefore, I will reflect this loving presence in this world, consecrating my thoughts, actions, and desires to this incredible power.
