Day 6 - Indomitable Spirit - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

Psalm 18:32-34 - (NIV1984)

"It is God who arms me with  strength and makes my way  Perfect.

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.

He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze."

Everyday of my life in boy scouts, ROTC, and in every leadership course in business and martial arts, I learned that I had to pull myself up by my bootstraps.  That it was up to me, and failure was not an option.  That perseverance is a mind set, and act of will.

And that is 100% true, perseverance is a mind set, and act of will.

But then a pastor pointed out to me that two of the "Tenets of Tang Soo Do," one of the martial arts my family practices, had two attitudes dealing with the path of my life.  Perseverance was the first word and the last was Indomitable Spirit. He told me that Indomitable Spirit was NOT an act of will, but rather the result of recognizing that I my path was made straight by the Lord, and that I could not lose, if it was on his path that I walked. That when I failed, I had absolute certainty that I had only failed, not lost, because standing with me, in front of me, and all around me, was God, making my path his path.

Just to make sure you know that this verse in not all about spiritual growth, and really about the real world, it goes on to tell you that he will grow and guide you Physically.

If you are his, and you know it, your strength can be multiplied by Indomitable Spirit, if you just stand up and claim it.
