Fight My Battles Challenge – Day 4

Today day 4 of our 5 day Battle Challenge! If you’ve been struggling to maintain the peace in your mind and heart during this season, this challenge is for you!

Every day for the 5 day Challenge, I will sharing Scripture and we will use it to repeat the 5 Rs:

1. Read my Bible, 2. Recite Scripture out loud, 3. Replace negative thoughts with Scripture, 4.  Review what God has already done for me, 5. Reach out to others asking how I can pray for them and if they have any physical needs.


John 15:4-11 (AMP), Matthew 7:7-8 (AMP), 1 John 5:14-15 (AMP), Romans 8:17-39


We must learn to abide in Jesus, to live from our relationship with Him, not occasionally look for Him when we’re in trouble or no longer comfortable. We must seek Him daily through prayer and reading His Word. We must learn to obey His commandment and keep asking, and seeking and knocking.

These things we’re facing now are NOT worthy of comparison to the glory that will be revealed in us. If you don’t quite understand what that means, it’s okay! Just know that the very best is yet to come!

Also, since we are the children of God, nothing can stand against us! Nothing can separate us from His love. When we are distraught and don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit prays for us. Jesus is praying for us!

We are more than conquerors and God is able to work all of these crazy times out for our good. Take heart, He has overcome the world.

Important Reminders

You can overcome all your worries by taking your thoughts captive and abiding in Christ, His Word and following His commandments. It is a discipline you must develop. You must be diligent and persistent!

Every time worry, fear or anxiety pop up, don’t entertain those thoughts or emotions. Simply tell them to leave and replace those feelings and thoughts with the Word. Keep seeking God, keep abiding in Him, keep asking Him for help, and keeping doing your part of taking those thoughts captive.

Read these verses. Recite them out loud. The power of life and death is in the tongue. Write them verses out if they speak to your heart. Remember to breathe.

Remember what God has already done for you. Pray. Reach out to others. Put on worship music. Distance yourself from the negative thoughts and review Scripture.

For extra encouragement, watch this short video below.

I’d love to hear what thoughts you are taking captive below in the comments!

Amanda Schenkenberger

I'm a wife to a hard working man and a mama of four little adorable boys. We live near Portland, Oregon and we love it. Portland has a great vibe and we love sharing the good news of the gospel with the people here.

I'm a stay at home mom first, then a work at home mom. The kids have to come first. I love people, hiking, coffee, converse, and Jesus. I also love coffee. And another favorite thing of mine is coffee. :) If you like coffee, we should be friends.

My one ridiculous dream I'd really like to come true is to collect one of every Starbucks mug that is related to a city or country.

Have a blessed day!
