Where do you stand in the battle for righteousness?
We are a battle zone, a continual battle for righteousness. On one side, we are drawn mightly to our Lord and his call to righteousness. On the other hand, our fleshly side is naturally drawn to sin. We battle within ourselves continually. That is the fate of being human.
We win the battle through faith, as Jesus won eternal life for us if we accept it. Believe, act with faith, and today's war can be won. There will be other battles, but be secure knowing that you have a path to the holy, to be holy, to win each battle.
Lord, you and I both know that I am not perfect. I admit it and know I will never be perfect. I also know that I can move closer and closer to perfection through prayer, learning, and action. I think acceptance is part of the experience of becoming a better person. Recognition and acceptance that there are times it is easier to take a route that doesn't bring me closer to you. These are situations where I need to accept that I must take the more difficult course and feel confident I can succeed. Lord, grant me the strength to make tough decisions and act on them. With your help, I will grow. I am grateful for that knowledge and look forward to the adventure this will become. Amen.
