I’m going to share with you a major secret in order for you to achieve victory in any and every circumstance that you will ever face.

Fight for your seed. 

What do I mean? 

Let’s say that you’ve decided to plant a lemon tree. You begin by planting a seed in the ground. You tend to this project frequently…watering it, adding the best of fertilizers and making sure you plant in an area where it gets the appropriate amount of sunlight to assure growth. 

If someone else were to walk pass that seed planted, to their naked eye, it would look like nothing is happening. Actually, it will probably look like just a pile of dirt…nothing extraordinary. But you know that you’ve planted a seed. Soon, the seed will grow and develop into that tree or that Kale if you’re anything like me. 

Yes, I eat Kale and actually enjoy it 😉 

Back to the lesson here. 

Now, let’s say that I’m your opposition. As matter of fact, I’m your enemy and I hate you. I live across the street from you so I see every move that you make and I know that you watching this tree grow means the world to you. I watch you day in and day out caring for your soon-to-be tree. 

Because I have absolutely no mercy for you and I want you to suffer, I decide to go on to your property and steal the seed right out of the ground. 

Why? Because it’s much easier for me to steal a small seed in the ground before it becomes a lemon tree. I’d rather steal a seed than a tree because it’s easier. Not to mention, you won’t even know that I stole it until perhaps it’s too late. 

This is exactly what your opposition does to your destiny and everything that you are building. Your opposition comes to steal the seed of your business, marriage, family, purpose, financial breakthrough because it’s still in seed form. It’s so much easier to steal a small seed from you before it manifests in front of your eyes – your opposition wants to steal the manifestation of whatever it is that you want and are working towards. 

It’s evil genius at it’s finest! Think about how evil and calculating that is? Let me steal this from her before she even knew she had anything to fight for. 

Your opposition will use any and everything to steal the manifestation of your destiny. Don’t get it twisted either. I’m not only referring to your destiny, I’m referring to everything that you love that concerns you. Nothing is omitted. That means your marriage, your family, your relationships, your time, your peace, your joy, your money, your health – everything is up for grabs which is why you must decide to not only to protect it but fight for it. 

Girl…this is not the time to feel sorry for yourself and cry in the corner. It’s time to fight for what you love, fight for your destiny, fight for your dreams, fight for your family, fight for your relationships. 

Don’t allow the opposition to steal from you what is rightfully yours. 

Our parents or grandparents may have not fought but it’s our time to fight, get back in the game and keep fighting until we see our desires manifested. 

I say this with all the love in the world but many of us are punks. We let any little thing frustrate us and we just give up. The moment it gets too hard or requires much more from us than we anticipated, we simply give up. 

Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to fight back? 

I don’t know what your opposition is trying to steal from you but I want you to know that you are far more powerful than your opposition. The reason why your opposition fights you so hard now is because he is terrified of who you’ll become, what you’ll accomplish and the lives that you will impact. 

You are a threat girl so consider the opposition as a compliment! 

Whatever you love, is worth the fight. What if your fight is going to bless the generations to come after you? What if your victory is a week or a month away? What if that relationship gets restored next week? What if that contract is coming at the end of the month? What if you’ll see your marriage realized before the end of this year? What if your dream job and paycheck is coming to you in August? What if all your prayers would be answered and manifested within the next 30 days? 

Have faith in God’s love for you. Faith is a fight so “put up your dukes” and get in fighting stance. 

How do you do that? Well I fight in prayer first. When you pray you are calling on God’s help from the realm of the supernatural. I also fight with my words. Use your words to speak to your mountains and declare what you want to see – not what you see. 

Another crucial way to fight is to walk in love, joy and peace. If your opposition can’t steal the seed, he will try to steal your peace in the process. You don’t have time to be frustrated or easily offended. Fight for your joy. 

Fear is torment and is a tool of your opposition. Focus on God’s love for you in your thoughts because God does not want you to have any fear in your life. Fear is faith in the wrong direction, it’s twisted faith and it’s faith in the wrong thing. 

Do you have faith in what you fear or in God’s love for you? 

Renew your mind for victory. Think only thoughts of triumph because the battle is won in your mind first. 

I’m not sure if you’ve seen this video before but I want to help encourage you. You are the football player and everything you want is at that finish line. Fight for what’s yours!
