When It Seems There is No Choice, Take Your Victory By Force!

It is time to take what is rightfully ours.

Matthew 11:14 says The kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.

I am reminded of the paralyzed man In Luke 5 starting at verse 18  who had friends carrying him on a mat so he could receive his healing. Jesus was teaching and there was a great crowd. The paralyzed man and his friends had a hard time getting through to Jesus because of the crowd. That didn’t stop them,. They saw the roof, went in through it, carried him in, and laid their friend in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith he forgave him and told him to rise up and walk. The paralyzed man immediately got up and walked glorifying God.

When the heat turns up, we turn up higher and fight the good fight of faith. If we get off course, repent and get back up. The word of God says a righteous man falls seven times and get back up again. 

I am also reminded of Jacob in Genesis 32 starting at verse 24 how he wrestled with an angel in human form. He wrestled all night until daybreak and the angel said let him go. Jacob didn’t give up. He said I will not let  go until you bless me. The angel blessed Jacob and changed his name to Israel because  he prevailed against God and man. Prevail means prove more powerful than opposing forces; be victorious. It also means to persuade someone to do something.

Our motto in slang “stay wit it, ’til you git it.”  With God on our side we can’t lose if we walk in love and stay in faith.

Thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph!
