“…guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge” 1 Timothy 6:20, NLT.
All throughout the Old Testament, we learn of kings who sought the LORD before going into battle and those who didn’t. Those who sought the LORD experienced victory, and those who didn’t experienced defeat and the humiliation that comes along with it. You are a daughter of the King, and every challenge that presents itself to you, my sister, isn’t for you to engage in. There are some battles that are not worth your time or energy. There are more important things the LORD wants you to focus on at this point in your life. To choose your battles wisely is to check in with the Holy Spirit anytime you are presented with an opportunity to engage in conflict.
Prayer: Father God, I ask you to lead me as to what battles to engage in. I need to know what you want me to do in every situation. Guide me by your Holy Spirit so that I won’t waste valuable time and energy. Help me, Lord, to choose my battles wisely. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
