We all at one point in our lives have entered a battle of some sort. A battle isn't always a physical exertion of brutish force; the most profound battles are fought within the mind.
How many times have you warred in your mind over a situation, trying to come up with a solution, but found yourself reliving the event? So in retrospect, you battle thoughts with thoughts, hoping to sort things out before your mind explodes. Our biggest critic is the reflection in the mirror. Like a seed in its clout, your breakthrough is waiting on the proper nourishment and the light of truth to shine upon your path.
God has already made a way of escape, but you have to chose to walk the path.
