“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,”
God loves to build champions. If you hang around long enough in his gym and your fighting style will begin to change. Punches of pain will be replaced with submissions of grace. Anger will be knocked out and weak legs made strong. God will never leave a fighter unchanged. He builds champions.
This might explain some of the pain in your life. Being a champion requires enduring pain. Training camp is not a walk in the park. We don’t object when we win, we just groan when we loose. He has high aspirations for you. God envisions you with your hand raised in the end. He won’t stop until he is finished… He wants you to be just like Jesus.
Remember, it is called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep Fighting!
