Fighting Battles

Don’t waste your precious time and energy fighting battles you cannot win. (Dave Phelps, businessman)

Not fighting those hopeless battles, Phelps says, “[will] make your life . . . much happier.” How many times do we find ourselves, like Don Quixote, fighting windmills of our imagination or real obstacles, hoping to overcome if we just fight hard and long enough? What a waste of time! It would be so much better to identify our real enemies and war against them with God’s help.

We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us! (2 Chronicles 32:8)
