We Need Warriors To Take On The Liberals

I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.

How To Develop The Mind Of A Warrior

I know a few men who confuse boldness with "being bad." These men were raised by domineering mothers who didn't understand the natural aggressiveness of boys, and shut their boys down hard, basically emasculating them.

Perhaps you're not as bad off as this. But all of us have been wimpy at times. And we're tempted to lose courage when we think about speaking up in public, enduring opposition, or sacrificing for an important cause.

For me, the key to my growth was establishing my identity in Jesus Christ, believing the truth, and acting on it. Here are some of my Bible favorite verses that have helped me develop the mind of a warrior, from the New Living Translation:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. (Ephesians 6:10, 11)

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. (James 1:22)

Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle. (Psalm 144:1)

"Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:8,9)

For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the LORD, nor faint when you are reproved by Him..." (Hebrews 12:3-5)
