In the “Cage of Life”, we need a break between rounds just as fighters in an actual ring require a rest period. Our Heavenly Trainer knows this and affords us opportunities between rounds to stop, focus and get ready for the next one. The Psalmist knew this when he penned Psalm 23:2-3, “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” It is in between the hard fought rounds that “Anointed Fighters” are called to stop, and really focus on the words of our Heavenly Trainers and have our souls refreshed before we head into the next round. Today, we are praying that all of you have the chance to be still and allow our Heavenly Trainer to restore your souls. And we want to offer up a special prayer for those of you that are mothers; that today would be a day of rest from all that you do; and that God would restore your souls and give your strength and focus for the next round.
Remember, it’s called a fight for a reason. However, we are fighting from Victory, not for victory.
