Sometimes, my husband tells me I’m stubborn. I, of course, argue my case, not backing down for anything…. which just goes to show that of course he’s right. I am stubborn. But admitting it would be a kind of surrender. One I’m not quite ready to give.
Stubbornness, for a woman can either be her friend or her enemy. Our stubbornness is that rebellious streak hardwired into each of us as a daughter of Eve. Sometimes it gives us the ability to face and conquer the issues of life as they come. But it is also that same rebellion that can get us into trouble if we don’t know how to use it to our advantage.
How do we use rebellion to our advantage? How can we put the power of stubbornness to work in our lives to bring about a positive outcome? It’s all in what we choose to rebel against.
- Instead of rebelling against obedience to God, rebel against sin.
- Instead of rebelling against your husband, rebel against the desire to always be right
- Instead of resisting change, rebel against mediocrity
- Instead of allowing life to just happen, rebel against laziness
Rebel against that which is against you. Harness the power of your stubbornness and use to bring about positive outcomes in your life.
What do you need to rebel against?
