The fight-or-flight response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceivedharmful event, attack, or threat to survival.[www.wikipedia.com]
In the fight for your life, you are going to have to decide if what you are fighting for is worth it. You are are going to have to decide if your opponent can be taken down or if you are willing to die trying.
I am in the fight for my life. I am backed into a corner and I have two choices. I can buckle down, fold my body into a fetal position and wait for the death blow, or I can fight back. I am swinging blindly, not knowing where my opponent is or what he has coming my way.
I will not take flight, no matter how much easier it is. I am in the fight for my life and I must change my strategy. What worked in the last battle will not fly during this war.
I have a 6-step strategy:
- Protect the baby. Don’t let the baby be compromised or harmed. My baby is my vision, my end goal, that which I was created to do and must achieve no matter what.
- Remain Focused. Keep my eye on the prize. Refuse to compromise or be distracted
- Refuse to fall; Refuse to fail. I must dig in my heels, take a dominant position, a stable stand, and refused to be brought to my knees or fall flat on my face.
- Consecrate myself and seperate myself for what lies ahead. Not everyone was meant to hear the strategy and not everyone was meant to go on this journey. Pick your generals wisely; Some have carried you long enough, bless them into their future.
- PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY without ceasing for this is the will of God
- Seek forgiveness where necessary. As you ask others to release you, it will break the shackles of the bondage of bitterness and unforgiveness leaving your mind alert and your heart clean.
[Luke 14:28]“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.”
I am in the fight for my life and I have considered it all. I have counted the cost and my destiny is my cause. I will not take to flight. I will stand and fight.
My question to you today is: What is Your Cause? Have you counted your cost? Is it worth it?
