Fight or Flee

I praise you, Lord! You are my mighty rock, and you teach me how to fight my battles. Psalm 144:1 CEV

In Other Words
I praise you, O Lord. You are my strength and security. Rather than fight my battles for me, You teach me how to fight them myself and win.

Small Bites
✓ God is our strength
✓ Our security
✓ And our place of safety
✓ But we don’t stay there
✓ He is portable
✓ He goes with us
✓ Sometimes He shelters us from the battle
✓ At other times He thrust us into the battle and protects us there
✓ God uses small battles to train us to fight bigger battles
✓ God leads us as we fight
✓ God did not call us to be cowards
✓ God does not expect us to hide from our problems and pretend they are not there
✓ He did not call us to be defeated
✓ The Shepherd’s staff can be a weapon or a crutch; use it wisely
