Who will fight your battle?
We know that Jesus defeated death, Satan and the power of sin at Calvary.
The question we too often as is, “What about my present conflict? Where is His victory for the battle raging in my life right now?”
When Jesus became your Savior, He made you a new creation—and although you changed, the world did not.
Because of this, there are powers that align themselves against you: the world, the devil, and even your own flesh, war against your spirit.
All these pressures push us toward doubt and despair, causing us to wonder, “Where is God in all this? I can’t see Him beyond my daily battles.”
David knew he was no match for Goliath but he also knew that the battle wasn’t his but God’s. When he heard Goliath’s taunts, he testified:
I Samuel 17:46-47
“This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down . . .
that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel . . .
For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand”
Spiritual victory is never our own; it comes from our Deliverer, Jesus Christ alone.
When you go through the battle or face a storm, remember the battle is not yours, it belongs to the LORD.
Pray: Help me, dear Lord, I need you right now to be my Deliverer! I pray this in Jesus Name. Amen
This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
