The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord. ~ Proverbs 21:31
Too often we rush into the fight with no regard of God's plan to deliver the victory. How many struggles have you faced without God - only to crawl back weak and beaten... begging for Him to rescue you?
When the temptations arise and the impulse begs you to fight that ugly habit, pause and do 3 things:
- Memorize today's verse, and speak it to yourself when the urge arises to launch
- Take a deep breath and ask God to go ahead of you
- Pray about your preparation and training to enter the "ring" that awaits.
