The only way to overcome conflict is to work through it. Steven Furtick

Standard

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 6:10-11
The only way to overcome conflict is to work through it. Running from an issue brings temporary relief, but in the end, anything you don’t deal with only grows bigger and stronger the longer you leave it alone. The fear you didn’t deal with in one stage of life can rear its head stronger in the next stage.
Your real struggle is not against external things like your money, another person, pornography, food, or any other thing. The only struggle you need to focus on to be victorious in life is the struggle within yourself.
Let me encourage you to stop pointing to external circumstances as the reason why you lack joy, don’t have a good attitude, or feel unfulfilled. If you allow God to change your thinking, it will embolden your approach to adversity.
Stop running – and stand strong in the authority you have in Christ Jesus.
