For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 NIV
As we remember our blessings, we cannot ignore the fact that there are challenges and obstacles we must overcome. As we journey through life, we will recognize the truth that the Christian life is a battle. In Romans 8:37 we find encouragement, "Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
In my personal life, I have experienced times of intense battles. Each Year there is battles internally and externally. Some of the battles I have experienced are sickness, relationship problems, intense temptation and financial battles, only to name a few.
Perhaps due to the Covid-19 pandemic you have noticed a more intense struggle with fear, anxiety, depression and a deep sadness due to great losses, bereavement or feeling isolated.
We cannot escape the battles against the enemy around us or within us. However, despite the great battles we are in there is good news. The good news is that every child of God has access to a Warrior who has never lost. The bible says that He the LORD will fight for us! He is the Victorious Warrior King!
The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. Exodus 14:14 NIV
God promised to us, His people, that He would save us and deliver us from the hands of the enemy. This does not mean that we will not have struggles with pain or even times of fear. In the middle of the struggles, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. It is not by our strength that we will win the battles but it is by the strength of the Almighty God.
When a struggle seems hopeless, you and I as a child of God must remember that no struggle is beyond the scope of God’s sovereign care for us, His children.
He promised to take care of us... Philippians 4:19 TPT
19-I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me thought the Anointed One, Jesus Christ.
He promised to make good plans for us... Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
11-For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
He promised to love us beyond measure...Romans 8:37-38 TPT
37-Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!
What battle do you need to give to God right now? Let him fight for you. God will fight for you and He alone will secure your peace. Give him control of your personal battles and be assured of Victory.
More than Conquerors,
