The spiritual battlefield tires you out, and takes the strength out of you. For those who are in a battle today, I am with you! The last 3 or 4 days it seems like the devil has had my number and is calling it in to the head honchos of the spirit world. My eyes are continuing to tear up, and I just can’t blame it on my allergies. So here I am at the place that I am ready to do battle again…
In the middle of my musings, I realize something significant. I am not alone on the battlefield. In fact, I am never alone and the battle really isn’t mine to win. The Savior is my defender. God will fight for me when I am weary in the battle. I love the verses that speak to all that God is to me.
Psalm 73:26, “…but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
Nahum 1:7, “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble…”
Psalm 28:7, “The Lord is my strength and my shield…”
Isaiah 46:4 “… I will carry you , and will deliver you.”
And the list goes on and on! God is all these things to us and more. The battle may rage hot for you today, but remember who is fighting for you. Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We cannot fight a spiritual battle without the help of our Savior who knows how best to fight. So let’s get on our knees together and fight the only way we can with prayer and a whole lot of Jesus.
Hang in there, sweet friends. The battle is not mine or yours. It is Christ’s battle to win.
Blessings to you!
