It’s Not Your Fight

Two times today I’ve heard the message: “It’s not your fight.”

Earlier, while listening to a Joyce Meyer c.d she spoke of how she always wants to solve people’s problems. She discussed how she often takes on more than she should because she’s picking up fights that aren’t hers to begin with.

Then, while talking to my man he flat out told me “It’s not your fight.” He told me to not try and control the situation, but let the Lord work it out.

So, now I’m writing to encourage you that it’s not your fight either. How often do we stress ourselves over situations or try and control them when truly we should just give them to God.

Sometimes those situations are personal, yet they’re still not our fight. Sometimes they affect us, our children, or our family; but it’s still not meant for us to jump in and control the situation. Sometimes prayer and trusting the Lord to work it out is the best resolution.

The devil is truly the author of confusion. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Often times he may be attempting to confuse and overtake us, but all we need to do is trust the Lord.

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.” Psalm 20:7-8

So, stop taking on more than you should. You aren’t capable of handling everything on your own.

Before you start trying to solve the next problem stop and ask yourself “Is this even my fight?”
