The Battle with Self


The Battle of Self
The man or woman in the mirror is normally a stubborn person. The resolve to stay true to one’s self preservation is a driver that can prove to be the standing boulder between achievement and failure. The battle with self is a battle many will fight but few will win.

In the midst of opportunity like Moses, self will normally look for an excuse not to attempt that which has never been attempted. In some circumstance the first excuse could be who am I or on whose name shall I go. Such an excuse is only but self refusing to be buried in new things not wanting to stretch one’s self to levels not yet attempted. Opportunity knocks on the doors of every continent but only those who are willing to go beyond the self preservation battle will open the door. It should not be a question of who am I but rather it should be a function of what needs to be done. Self is only but an existence to enable the achievement of all things concerned. In achievement is not only the preservation of self but the discovery of the deeper things of life.

As Moses stood arguing with God within his excuses, self simply attacked his very personality. Are we born with the instruments to achieve great accomplishments in life? The very truth that that you breathe means you are the possible conduit of God’s power which makes you able to achieve anything and everything that is set before you. Your context of function should not be based on what your experiences have been with yourself but rather should be based on your standing in the presence of God. Opportunity will knock on your door but do not let the battle with self stand in your way.

In the midst of all possibilities the battle with self should become a historical event. A decision in the past in which self preservation became a non-event but rather glory became a pivotal event. We are meant for glory after all being fearfully and wonderfully made means we are creation for the glory of God. Life still wonders on our make on how we were made, it then only is fitting that the conclusion of the battle of self should be defeat to self and victory to the glory of God.
Be blessed.
