For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
There are multiple definitions of the word “fierce.” The connotation of the word “fierce” ranges anywhere from “aggressive” and “destructive” to “heartfelt” and “powerful.” For the purpose of this blog, we are sticking with the following meaning: “showing a heartfelt and powerful intensity.” To mom fiercely for the King implies that we are momming with all our might, from a power source that is not our own. We must mom in the strength of the Lord’s awesome power.
Ephesians 6:10 says, “Be strong in the Lord in the strength of his might” (emphasis mine). If we are to know God more fully and mom fiercely for Jesus, we must accept our position of inferiority, beneath the King. We must learn to depend on his power over our own, his glory and not our own. Being a fierce mom takes meekness. Meekness implies humility that is dependent on Christ Jesus for confidence, wisdom, power, patience, and all the things.
Let us fall on our Mama swords in faith and die to ourselves and our sin nature, so that we might truly live for Jesus. When we lay down our lives in faith and say, “Lord have your way…” God is able to do so much more than we ever dreamed possible. He wants to move in our hearts and lives. He wants to use us as vessels for his glory. Mom with all your might each day, walking humbly with the Lord and relying on his strength that never fails.
God's grace stretches beyond the meager mom muscles we try so hard to flex each day. When we learn to rely on the strength of his grace, we are equipped with mountain moving power. Through faith, we can lean on God's amazing, faith fortifying, sanctifying grace. Only through grace can we mom with a fierceness that comes through the power, wisdom, and authority of the Holy Spirit. By faith we have been saved through grace (Ephesians 2:8-9). Let's take this avenue that has been so generously opened to us. Let's mom from the strength of Christ's grace. Only through grace can we experience true sanctification.
