Sometimes to get what you want from God you have to get down into trenches, grab hold of His promises and resist the enemy's advances in your life.
Even when you're in the right area to succeed, unless you become proactive it may never be yours.
Before Israel could inhabit the Promised Land they had to fight the Canaanites, the Hittites, and other "ites." So, you've got to fight your "ites," if you're going to enjoy your rights!
Wrong! God didn't tell the Israelites they'd inherit the Promised Land after they died. But they had to fight for it! There were 31 kings and 7 nations that had to be conquered before they could move in and possess it. And they had to be dealt with one by one.
Are you getting the idea?
Your "ites" must be dealt with!
God will give you the strategy and the weapons.
He'll even empower you, but you've got to fight for your inheritance!
Plus what you become in the process is often more valuable than what you gain on the other side of it!
