Warriors Get Back Up

I’m sure you’ve seen images of a soldier who is beaten, bloodied and war-torn, while refusing to quit. Maybe it’s Mel Gibson portraying Hal Moore in We Were Soldiers or Desmond Doss’ character saying, “One more,” in Hacksaw Ridge.

This is nobility, honor and courage on display. These warriors stay in the fight until the fight is over, or they are taken out of the battle. These are compelling images, photos and illustrations.

Have you heard of retired Navy Seal, Jason Redman? He was shot eight times (once in the face) while in a grueling gunfight in Iraq, and he has overcome incredible odds to win!

Isn’t that what we all desire?

Not the war, blood, guts and injury part, but the message underlying these actions?

Getting back up.

Moving forward.

Refusing to quit.

We all face opposition. The greatest enemy we face seeks to kill and destroy all that’s good and right, but man’s Victor and Defender came to bring us life!

John 10:10 – “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

As Redman shared in his book, Overcome, we need to REACT when we hit an obstacle, setback or a profound issue of the heart.

1.     Recognize your reality (Jeremiah 6:16)

2.     Evaluate your position (Matthew 6:5-13)

3.     Access possible exit routes (1 Corinthians 10:13)

4.     Choose a direction and communicate (Matthew 6:33)

5.     Take action. (James 2:18)


We’re in a WAR. Our culture needs WARRIORS. How will you REACT?
