When I was a kid, neighborhood boxing was a big thing. All of the little kids in the neighborhood would gather in front lawns and throw on some gloves and just go for it.
The goal? Don’t get knocked out!
It really didn’t matter to us whether we won or lost as long as we swung and didn’t get knocked out.
Yes, we would leave a little bruised; with headaches and the occasional bloody nose, but in the end we would feel a sense of pride because we didn’t give into the fear of our opponent.
There is no doubt in my mind that you have found out that life can throw some very hard blows. It can hit so hard that it makes you lose your sense of realty and the world you know.
The hard reality of life’s situations can be devastating, knee buckling, and life altering, but they do not have to knock you out of your destiny.
My goal on that front lawn is the same for all of the oppositions I fight today.
Don’t Get Knocked Out!!!
As long as we keep swinging and fighting we are guaranteed victory in all we do.
Opposition in life is bound to happen. That is a given, but the truth is we can either cave under the pressure and run from it, or go through it and conquer it.
Maybe you’re getting hit hard from life. Maybe life has caused you to lose track of the ground beneath your feet.
Let me encourage you today. Keep Fighting. Your opposition puts you in a position for God to do the extraordinary.
In your weakness God can show off His perfection. Don’t allow your opposition to steal the glory God wants to shine through you.
Yes, the devil will persecute us, yes weapons will rise against us, but none of these will gain the victory over our lives, because Christ has become the victory for us.
My friends today!! Do Not Get Knocked Out!!!
Keep fighting, persevering, and growing. You are being perfected!
But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness 2 Corinthians 12:9
No weapon forged to be used against you will succeed; you will refute everyone who tries to accuse you. This is what the Lord will do for his servants— I will vindicate them,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
Remember: Don’t Get Knocked Out!!
