Fighting The Fight

I have to fight. I have to fight with all my might.

I hear the guidance of the Lord. I feel and sense His guidance in the midst of my plight.

His Guidance shines brightly, because it is a guiding light, as it contrast against my darkness.

Every time I hear THE WISE COUNSEL of the Lord, it is clear. It is not mumbled, jumbled, or distorted.

His guidance is short, concise, and always clear and direct.

I know it, when I hear or sense it. I cannot escape it nor does my spirit desire to.

My flesh on the other hand wants to pretend it doesn’t hear, for it knows full well what God’s counsel translates to- it represents the ‘giving up’ of something that it holds dear and that it delights in and thoroughly enjoys.

Do you know what happens when we continue hearing His voice and repeatedly treat it as fodder by taking no action and disregarding it as meaningless?

Definition of Fodder:

1 : something fed to domestic animals especially : coarse food for cattle, horses, or sheep
2 : inferior or readily available material used to supply a heavy demand fodder for tabloids This sort of breezy plot line has become cheap fodder for novelists and screenwriters ….



One thing I have acquired in this life is PAIN. A Ton of it.

And I am personally responsible for all of it. If sin was a wrecked car, I have personally contributed a insurmountable quantity that lines up row after row of useless vehicles. I am the shameful owner of a litany of junkyards.

But, I have gained some knowledge and some experience from all the repeated catastrophes.

Here is a golden 24karat nugget that I have managed to squeeze out from all the worthless pile of junky cars:

When you hear the Lord speak to you, no matter the method, Thank Him for speaking. His advice is more precious than all fame, money, or fortune. Thank Him that you can still hear His counsel and words, even if your flesh despises the necessary change His counsel is convicting you to make.

Thank Him and Praise Him, because when you can no longer hear His invaluable voice of Truth, that’s when Hell begins to roll right into your life.

Remember, you spend time on your knees asking God to help you, praying, fasting, requesting, working, giving, sweating,and bleeding and now when He responds, don’t expect it to be easy. It’s going to hurt, and that’s good because when it hurts it means the cutting away of something we don’t need anymore. Cut it out, cut it out with your very own hands and fry it. Toss it into the FIRE of God’s purifying Truth. The joy that comes afterwards is sublime.

In comparison when we do NOT listen, what comes? Immediate shame, doubt, fear, repeating the same vicious cycle of no progress.

Every time. Let me say that again- EVERY SINGLE TIME that I have lingered and told myself ‘I’ll get to it in a few days or in a little while’ in reference to the advice of the Lord, it has ALWAYS come back to bite me in the rear end. His advice is always on time, and His advice is trying to get me to avoid the disaster up ahead. If we linger, when we linger, we in effect declare ‘We Got This Lord’ , and that’s comical. All we got in that case is another wreck waiting to happen. A twenty car pile up, in some cases with expired insurance.

Proverbs 20:9 “Be wise my Son, so that I may make a reply to He that taunts me.”

1 Samuel 15:23


Second golden nugget:

When you hear His counsel and direction, do NOT linger and contemplate and reason…. all that does is delay things and give opportunity for you to NOT do what the Lord is asking. Besides, if we TRULY trust the Lord, then what the HELL is there to think about? Are we now, going to think of something that He missed? Some crucial piece of information that he forgot to incorporate that’s going to turn the tide and allow us liberty to do the wrong, that our flesh calls right?

I myself am still learning how to immediately act. I know when it’s the Lord speaking. I know when it is my flesh clamoring me to NOT listen. TO continue practicing what I know I shouldn’t. I am learning to immediately do , throw away, get rid of, not contact anymore, etc, when He asks.

To do this, to follow these two golden nuggets of TRUTH AND WISDOM, is to begin to grow and advance in life by selling one useless vehicle at a time.


Almighty God,

Grant those with sincere hearts the Will and Determination to ACT immediately upon hearing your voice of TRUTH. For those children who can hear are TRULY blessed among the nations.

Thank you Father, for all you do, IN JESUS NAME we glorify and praise you.

My aim is to help others make sense of their own lives, by sharing the failures and misfortunes of mine. Misfortune and failure lead a man to the unmistakable clarity of his deception- That there is no need, nor room for God, because he himself is self sufficient, well educated, rich and capable. The more the man stays his ground, holding fast to his position- the more suffering he shall bring into his life. Suffering is the ground upon which elimination of the false occurs and perception of the Truth begins. After enough time is spent courting Misery, Pain, Humiliation, Slavery, Emptiness, one seeks to stop the bleeding. Some men prefer to bleed their way to death rather than admit their ignorance; that their way will never work. While other men, surrender, which is the beginning of knowledge. By surrendering the man does not fall, he rises and steps foot upon the path of Eternal Wisdom and Truth. It is the path that leads to Eternal Life- the pursuit of knowledge, is the pursuit of Almighty God- Man's Creator. *If you have questions, concerns, need direction, prayer, you may email me.* I do not charge for what Almighty God has given me freely.
