How do you fight your battles in life?
"When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials, and the rest of the people: "Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses." "At whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us." Nehemiah 4:14, 20
So often today I believe we as believers in Jesus Christ have allowed ourselves to become politically correct. We say to be nice and kind the way Jesus wants us to be we just need not say anything at all. Our lives have become spiritually sterile. Yet there are people who really do not like our belief, or what we stand for. So we just let others influence us into becoming a coward. Today is the day for standing up and fighting for what we believe. But what does the fight look like, we think of fight or conquest today as total destruction, get people out of the way or destroy them. May I encourage you today to fight the right way. The first and foremost is battle preparation, have you prayed today??? The movie "War room" shows how this can work in our lives. Nehemiah knew through prayer that Jesus was great and awesome and that Jesus would fight for them. Daily pray for those in your family, Church and yes even those who come against you. Secondly find a Church, and become an active part of it. Rally around each other, encourage each other, stand up for one another. When the people come together for a common purpose they can accomplish a lot, by the power of God through Jesus Christ. We need each other. Today be ready to share your faith in Jesus Christ, and find others who share your belief and faith. Pray together and encourage each other.

Nehemiah 12:44 (NAS)
On that day men were also appointed over the chambers for the stores, the contributions, the first fruits and the tithes, to gather into them from the fields of the cities the portions required by the law for the priests and Levites; for Judah rejoiced over the priests and Levites who served.
