There things that are inevitable in life and then there are things that we ought have had a way around. Our decisions either make and unmake us and making the right choices in life may see you go further than you may have even anticipated and would help you reach your goals. Thus in this life you must have a strategy and a plan for everything you do, knowing when to when and when to retreat may just save you from more trouble.
Do not go out there looking for trouble however you surely be very much prepared for them should they come. An unprepared mind is bound to fail. Pick the battles you will win and leave the rest to those who can win. How does all this apply into our Christian life?
1 Timothy 6:12; Fight the good fight of faith,lay hold on life, where you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Life in itself is a battle and the only way we win is with Christ in our vessel, with the knowledge of the Word of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit we are to soar through life abiding by his will, doing what ought to be done and leaving what ought to be left that we may see ourselves succeed in our ventures and glorify the name of our father in heaven.
