Keep Moving Forward

moving forward2Those who enter the Navy SEAL program “soon discover that the biggest muscle a SEAL uses is his brain! This is why only 19-20% of those entering the…training course will complete it, and those that do may be the ones who came in looking like the least likely to finish – the geeks, scrawny country boys, and non-athletic types who puked on the runs and were visibly terrified of the instructors.”
One SEAL put it this way, “You never leave the fight.” In order to do this, one must think through a situation despite the physical pain they may be feeling. Thus, those who start the program are not the strongest physically, but the strongest mentally.
As 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 states, our fight as believers in Christ is not so much a physical one (“the weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world”) as it is a spiritual and mental one (“we take captive every thought”). The battle we face is between our ears. And, the biggest muscles we use are our brains and faith.
Living in freedom doesn’t come from quitting or going backward, despite the pain or discomfort we feel – emotional or physical. It’s like Einstein said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” Healthy believers, those living in victory, use their biblical tools to keep moving forward through (not over or around) their challenges every day everywhere.
I encourage you today to keep moving forward by exercising the truths the Spirit’s put into your brain. Don’t deny your pain, instead think and exercise through it.
