The ways of salmon amazes me. They swim upstream against the current, choosing to go against the flow and take on the adversity. They don’t just persevere through the adversity; they embrace it.
As believers, we’re to be like the salmon of this world. The way to deal with adversity isn’t just to deal with it, but do it as the salmon does, taking life head on. It chooses to go against the flow and against the current. As a believer, you’re not supposed to go through life on the defensive, surprised by problems, trying to get away from the fight. Instead, take on sin, flesh, and the ways of this world head on. Take the kingdom of the enemy head on. Choose to fight the good fight, choose to freely go against the flow. Every day is a choice for a good fight, a good challenge, and a good conquest. Go for it! That’s what David did. That’s what Paul did. That’s what the first believers did.
Live like that, and you’ll be blessed and victorious. You’ll go uphill or upstream, just like the salmon.
Today’s Mission – Commit today to go against the way of the world, the way of the flesh, and the way of the problem.
