We all face difficulties and challenges in life. But you have to remember, as a believer in Jesus, you have the life-giving seed of Almighty God on the inside of you. When you go through battles or tough times, you may feel like you’ve been buried. You may feel like you are in a dark, lonely place. You may feel like it’s the end and your ready to be submitted or knocked out, but really it’s only the beginning. The fact is you haven’t been buried, you have been planted. That means you’re coming back. And not only are you coming back, but you are coming back in increase, better and stronger and faster than before.
In these tough times, you’ve got to draw a line in the sand. Take a stand, “This battle is not going to bury you. Let the light that is inside you shine outward. This loss, this disappointment, this injustice is not going to cause you to give up on your dreams. You must refuse to live in self-pity and know you are a seed. That means you cannot be buried. You can only be planted. You may have been taken down, but you know it’s only temporary. You know you are not only coming back, your coming back even better and stronger than you were before!” Remember it’s called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep on fighting!
