Why You Need To Fight For Faith

In Blog by Cole Sager10 Comments

You are meant for something great. You are capable. You have never been more valuable than in this moment right now.

Your dreams were given to you for a reason. Hold tight to that reason. I firmly believe that you are capable of obtaining whatever your heart longs for. I know that you can and that you will, if you simply stay the course.

Some days are an uphill battle. Other days you have all of the motivation and tools that you need. And then there are days that you backslide while others make leaps and bounds forward. It is all part of the process.

However, if you are going to make it, if you are going to set the example that others are waiting for, if you are going to boldly stand forth and declare that you know it’s possible, then you must FIGHT for faith.

I have faith in you. I challenge you to have that same faith in yourself, especially on the hard days. You are an overcomer. That is the silver lining of mankind. You are no different. You can have the great marriage. You can have the awesome job. You can have the adoring friends, healthy body, and full bank account. It is yours to be had.

It is said that it only takes the faith of a mustard seed to move a mountain. So why aren’t we moving them?!

If we could fully grasp how much power and potential we hold, we would see a world full of happiness, innovation, service, and joy.

We will get there. We need only to keep faith. #BeKindWorkHard #Matthew17v20

I would love to hear what in your life is requiring great faith. Share with me below.

  1. Thank you for being a light where there is so much darkness. Your positivity and stand for faith in our Lord, and using your platform for something greater, is what will set you apart. You never know who may be looking up to you and see the kind of standard you are setting, or who may be reading this at just the right time, but because you have made this blog you have given someone the opportunity for something better. The CF community needs more figures like you and so does the world.

      Tony, thank you so much for the words of encouragement. It is notes like yours that inspire and motivate me in my own journey. I appreciate you, my friend! Godspeed.

  2. For a long time I had an alcohol problem and my faith lacked in many ways, and i ended up going to prison. I weighed 235 pounds was miserable cursed God.. watching tv one day I saw you and other athletes competing in the games and it inspired me. I began reading magazines and books and keeping track of the crossfit world while also becoming involved in it myself. People like who helped me not only regain a connection with my health but opened my love and praise back to the lord. I have been out of prison now for almost 6 months and it has been very tough and continues to be tough, but its stories and faith like your that help me realize there is a greater purpose. Thank you for all that you do and all who you inspire. I have so much more I could say but it’s better to make it short

      Bryan – Bro! Thank you so much for sharing that, my friend! Seriously, hearing stories like yours encourage me in such a big way. I really appreciate you being open enough to share. I am praying for you my man and hope that I can be a beacon of light and hope along your journey. Let me know if there is any type of content I can put out to help you more. Thanks friend!

  3. I’m struggling with faith in my faith. I feel like since attending church more, the further I feel God around me. I always felt him and heard him but now I feel alone. I know he’s there but it seems like I can’t heard him or feel him and it’s hard to be motivated about church or reading the Bible. I need that mustard seed.

      Melissa, I appreciate you sharing this so much. I know that one of the things that has helped me draw nearer to God is getting near people who love Him and openly talk about Him. I believe that God moves in and through people. You never know what kind of message God might just have for you in a friend or acquaintance of yours. I also highly suggest ready the book Knowledge of The Holy by A.W Tozer. Let me know how I can help serve you, friend!

      1. Thank you so much Cole I really appreciate your response. I will definitely check that book out. Tell your beautiful wife hello for me. 😉

  4. “For by grace are ye saved through FAITH and that not of yourself it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast” Eph 2:8-9. The most important place you could ever put your faith is on Jesus Christ death burial and resurrection! The total payment for your sin. It’s a free gift by your faith on it! Eternal > Temporary

      LOVE this so much! Thanks for posting that Mathew! I couldn’t agree more. PTL!

  5. Hey Cole, I just came across this while searching for your podcast. My wife and I are overseas and there are certainly days where it is hard and we have to fight to remember our purpose in Jesus and how much the gospel has the power to change everything. Thanks for the reminder to go to battle for faith and keep fighting.
