Real Christians have been taught by God how to war. They have been taught how to take a licking and keep on ticking. They have been taught how to get back up after being knocked down time and time again. Ultimately, the Lord has taught the believer how to fight back. In fact, David said “Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight (Psalm 144:1)”. Thus, it’s not the physical fighting that impresses God it’s the spiritual fighting that he desires for us to perfect. Those who fight back are those who don’t quit when adversity comes; those who fight back are those who don’t run when faced with a challenge but will get on their knees before God as long as it takes to get the victory. If that means praying all night they are willing to do it. If that means praising him a little longer they are prepared to do it. If that means taking our fingers and searching through the word of God looking for answers to the problem they are up to the task. Thus, to teach our hands to war and our fingers to fight is to lift those hands up high in praise to God as a sign of worship and surrender to him that He is all and all, and that we are helpless without him. Hence, child of God we don’t allow adversity to cause us to faint, quit or become less than what God said we could be. What we do is we fight back in prayer, praise, word and worship because those elements will cause God to fight on our behalf. Therefore saints, encourage yourself to fight back when you are faced with the trials and tribulations of life.
God Bless You
