Tired of fighting a battle that you feel like you can’t win? Exhausted from screaming, fussing about it, or being upset, fearful, or worried about things that you feel like is totally out of your control? Let me ask you one more question. Have you ever heard that your weapons of warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds? Well, it’s true. Second Corinthians 10:4 tells us so. Listen sis. As you press to live right and do what God has called you to do, guess what? You will experience spiritual warfare and you will face things in your life that will like you have no control over…but that’s when you have to learn to let God fight the battle for you.
In this life, opposition will come. Tough circumstances will pop up without much notice. And people will come against you or do things that will just completely shock you! However, when these things happen, know that you are not alone in the process. God is your very present help in a time of trouble, your mighty deliverer, and your vindicator! So let Him help you, deliver you in His perfect timing, and be your vindicator/defender. The more you realize this, the more you’ll begin to let go and NOT take matters into your own hands. Instead, you can KNOW that the battle belongs to the Lord!
He reassures us of this in 2 Chronicles 20:12 & 15 stating, “Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” Amen!
Sis, let me tell you something, today. As we draw closer to the soon return of Christ, our great enemy Satan will step up his game! And he will not be as excited as you are about doing God’s will or fulfilling His purpose in your life. And as you go through hard trials, he will try to make you feel like there is no way that you can get through it. But that’s a lie. Keep in mind, he is the father of lies. That’s why it’s important to know that in these last days, Satan will try everything in the book to try to throw you off track, get you to doubt God, lose hope and faith, and get you to fight others with your mouth or hands. But don’t let him win!
Defeat him by pressing to trust God at all cost. Win by responding to tough situations or people with patience, love, peace, and humility…this is character in action. When you act in these ways, it confuses the enemy and others who are watching you go through this trying moments in your life and it supernaturally gives you strength and the onlookers. Why? Because you are letting God fight for you. You are using what you know…which is the Word and applying right teaching.
The Bible tell us in Romans 3:31, “If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Amen! Having this type of God-confidence that God is with you and standing on the fact that NOTHING is impossible with Him, should increase you faith. Just hold up your shield of faith and wield the sword of the Spirit at the enemy when he comes at you strong, and win!
From my own personal experience, I’ve learned more and more that as Christians, we are in a spiritual battle. But no matter what you and I may face in this life, whether it is tough circumstances, tests and trials, people issues, or just fiery attacks from the enemy, God is on our side and He is fighting for us. We don’t have to be afraid or discouraged. We don’t have to shrink back. Because we know that the battle belongs to the Lord!
So let Him fight for you, sis. Because when you let go, and let God, you actually WIN!
Remember, Jesus is coming back soon! And those who endure unto the end shall be saved. So let’s be ready from the Inside Out!
