Fight

The child of God meets on every hand that which tends to keep his eye fixed on the earth and that which belongs to the earth. Thus he is in the greatest danger of being characteristically a dweller upon earth, and forgetting that he has been called to look above where Christ is seated on the right hand of God.

It is easy for anyone to see some kinds of evil, and, moreover, it is safe and popular to denounce certain manifestations of wickedness. But unless the child of God can understand and appreciate for himself in some measure the teaching of 2 Corinthians 10.4 and Ephesians 6.12, he cannot be a warrior in the conflict to which we have been called.

And men of God must be brave. They must not expect always to fight in close formation. It is necessary at times to stand alone; alone for God amidst many who know Him not. The man who stands is the man who wins. There is a battle to be fought, not on a field stained with human blood, nor yet with weapons for mortal conflict. Where the man of God finds himself in the will of God there he is called upon to stand, though all turn against him.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not

fear:

Though war should rise against me, even then will I be confident."

(Psalm 27.1,3)

This gives the secret of power. This alone can strengthen us against the wiles of the adversary, to know God and His strength.
