This thought came to mind as I saw another blog post that quoted Psalm 55:6 – “I said, ‘Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest’.” Our natural instinct is to run from life’s problems. The psalmist continues by talking about how he will pray and find deliverance and victory.
When I was facing my divorce, I counseled with another pastor who went through a similar situation. He played devil’s advocate. After a while, he said, “No wonder you don’t know how to fight. You grew up as an only child.” That stuck with me.
What are you going through today? Are you going to tuck your tail and walk away, or are you going to fight? Are you going to roll over and give in or fight with all you have plus what the Lord gives you?
Don’t wish you could fly away! That’s not reality. Determine in your heart and mind to arise victorious over your circumstances. On the other side, give God the glory!
