Take the First Step Today to Overcome Resistance in Life

Understanding the Nature of Resistance Can Be Life-Changing
On a friend's recommendation, I just finished the book, "The War of Art" by author Steven Pressfield.
As a point of reference, Pressfield also wrote the book 'The Legend of Bagger Vance' which later was produced into a movie by the same name.
In the 'The War of Art', Pressfield's only non-fiction book, he writes about what gets in our way from doing what we know we need to do.
The book forces the reader to consider some things they may not have thought about before.
Pressfield writes, Most of us have two lives. The life we live and the unlived life within us.
Between the two…
What keeps you from putting yourself in motion is resistance.
This negative force is invisible. It cannot be seen, touched, heard or smelled. But it can be felt.
The intention of this repelling force is to shove you away, distract you, sap your energy or incapacitate you from achieving God’s purpose for your life.
The interesting thing about resistance is that it’s internal. It’s insidious and does everything to keep you from moving forward.
Resistance plays the enemy within because you can’t negotiate with it. And above all, it’s always lying.
Resistance is Enemy’s Tactic to Stop You from Moving Forward
You probably didn’t realize but this toxic force is a tool the enemy uses to stop you from living the life God wanted you to have.
This tactic of the enemy is the root of more unhappiness than poverty and disease.
Repeated or non-stop resistance is an indicator that our soul needs refreshment through God’s word.
It shows that we need to sit more in God presence and act as victorious in Christ then the enemy will flee.
