What’s my purpose? What on earth am I here for? Why am I here? Does God even care? Bad things keep happening to me, I can’t catch a break! Help, I’m stuck! How can I keep fighting for the promises of God?!

Do any of these questions cross your mind? It’s different when you are a new believer or have been in a relationship with Jesus for many years. We can often take it for granted that we already know our purpose, so when we begin to have questions and doubts, shame creeps in. I’m here to tell you that don’t be fooled by shame, I believe God can take our questions and when we truly seek Him, we will find Him and the answers He holds.

Today, I want to help you understand why there is a need for us to know God’s promises and why we need to fight for them.

Here are three reasons for you to think about.

  1. Fighting for the promises has something to do with who you are as a child of God

As a child of God, we have been given the special position and role to be co-heirs with Christ, and that comes with a responsibility. It’s not merely a position of power for power’s sake, but for the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom.

When you take a step into who you are and who you are meant to be (identity) and do (purpose), watch how God works and breaksthrough in your life. 

You’ll find your every needs met and more. You’ll realize you don’t have to worry about anything. 

”“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?“

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭25‬-‭27‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Fighting for the promises God has for you is not you being petty, it’s you becoming who you are in Jesus. Disclaimer: know that the promises we are talking about our not selfish ambition but godly Biblical promises.  

  1. The things at risk

When we begin to understand that there’s things at risk when we don’t fight for the promises! Praying and interceding for people can be the very key that helps save them from their own selves. 

Jesus came on earth knowing His purpose and when He died on the cross, He knew what was at stake. It was our lives.

How about you, fulfilling your God-given destinies, who is it for? Is if for your sake, your loved one’s sake, or for God’s glory?

Take time to reflect and process with the Holy Spirit to examine your heart if you understand this. 

  1. The benefits for you and those around you.

This is a reversed way of understanding what I said in number 2. Things at risk, then there’s the benefits. 

How will your life change today or six months from now if you choose to fight for God’s promises for your life? 

So, girl, I leave you with this encouragement.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.“

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭36‬-‭39‬ ‭NIV‬‬
