How To Be A Warrior In Your Marriage

 

Devotional Content: 

What does it really mean to have the heart of a warrior? That is a challenge for me. I like the idea of being a fighter and going to battle, but often the images in my mind are different than truly being a warrior for God. If I am fighting self-defined battles, my tendency is to be selfish. I fight for what I want instead of making sure I am fighting for what God wants. Being a warrior for God really involves fighting for something that is much greater than myself. Fighting for Him means I fight the battles that truly matter and in that fight, I follow Jesus’s example. That can also be tough because Jesus led like a servant and ultimately laid down His life for me. So if I am to fight like Jesus, I have to be willing to do the same as He did. The good news is that I don’t have to do it in my own power and my own strength. Jesus is right there fighting by my side and I have His power and His strength. Each day as I fight for something great for my marriage and my family, He is right there with me. With Jesus at my side, I will win the battle day after day after day! So will you!

 

Today’s Challenge:

  1. What does it mean to you to “fight for something greater than yourself?”

  2. Today, what is the battle you are fighting that matters the most? How can you bring God into the battle?

  3. What does it mean to you to be a servant leader?

Going Deeper:

Pastor Craig says that we do not have to fight “in our own strength.” How does that play out for you in the battles you face daily?
