Fight The Good Fight Of Faith … And The Foolishness Of Lesser Things Fades
I think all of us have learned the value of disciplined living.

I know that we are often encouraged that to change our lives we need to dream big, to expect the best and to expand our desire … and those are demonstrative choices that move us.

However, real-life change requires more than possessing or proclaiming those things … it requires radical discipline.

Wishing and hoping must give way to wrestling and heeding … otherwise, there will be no gains and no genuine change.

John Ortberg made it clear in his book, “The Life You’ve Always Wanted” that it will be spiritual disciplines that deliver real-life to us.

There is no other way!

We must take on the task of putting our lives in order … and yes we will need to prevail in prayer, guard our hearts and build our faith.

More than that, we will need to …

Kelli LaFram writes this in her article, ” Turn My Eyes From Worthless Things “:”The psalmist in Psalm 119:37 is asking the Lord to take action. As in, “God, You must turn away my eyes. I can’t do it. You must revive me in Your ways. I am incapable.”

And bam. Light bulb moment.

If I want to give up worthless things I need to rely on the Holy Spirit. My heart is too sinful by nature and unwilling to give these things up.

I need Jesus. I need Him to turn my eyes away from worldly, worthless things. I need Jesus to revive me in His ways.

I can not do this on my own. So I must pray in desperation the same prayer of the psalmist. And trust that God will answer.”

God will surely do His part to tune our hearts to His rhythm and to open up a way for real-life change but it takes true devotion and discipline to walk into all that is intended to be ours.

When we do this …
▪ our fervor to press on, fires up
▪ our faith development will be fully engaged
▪ our life mission is secure

We must fight the good fight of faith … righteously, relentlessly and recklessly … and when we do, every lesser thing begins to fade away.

This is the rallying cry of the righteous … so I know that I want to say yes to this … and you?
