I have been reading an autobiography by Shawn Michaels, the retired wrestler. In one chapter, he describes the differences between his images of a warrior prior to and after becoming a Christian. While the world may view warriors as those that are strong and ready to fight on their own, this isn't the only way a warrior can be victorious!
When we are "warriors" for God, we cannot succeed based on our own strength or abilities. In order to further God's Kingdom, we need to be obedient to God and patient as we wait on Him. God has the power to help us be victorious. We need to submit to God's power and will, be patient in God's timing, self-controlled in our actions. With God, we can be both a warrior and a person of patience and obedience!
Be a patient and obedient warrior for God's Kingdom by trusting in and waiting on God!
Thank You for the power that You have shown in my life. Help me to be patient and obedient as a warrior for Your Kingdom. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
