Battles, battles, everywhere are battles. Yikes, ack, whimper. The world seems to have gone stark raving mad.
I have good news, the battles will rage, but the final war has been won. Victory has been declared, victory has been won, for the ending has been given by God and no one can change what God has declared. Evil will be punished and the righteous will come Home to eternal paradise.
We are not called to fight every battle, we are strategically placed throughout the globe to be strategically used by God to tell the Good News that Jesus saves. We are placed here and now in the world to tell the world that there is One who offers grace, mercy, forgiveness and saves the world.
Although Satan uses people to accomplish his devious plans, we do not fight with flesh and blood. We can battle in the heavenlies, and the power of heaven is always, always, always greater in us than the enemy. God is greater, God is victorious and we fight from God’s victory. Our power, our might isn’t what is needed, we don’t have to be super-people, we only need to rest in the power of our All-Mighty God.
Battles are raging all around us, it’s hard to stand, so difficult to fight, but please remember you are never alone, you are never without hope, and God is mighty to save. If you are in a battle, trust that God will bring you through that battle, and every battle, to victory.
Remember, “we have complete victory through him who loved us! For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 8:37-39 (NET Bible)
“Thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:57 (AMPC)
“The Lord, my protector, deserves praise—the one who trains my hands for battle, and my fingers for war, who loves me and is my stronghold, my refuge and my deliverer, my shield and the one in whom I take shelter…” ~ Psalm 144:1-2 (NET Bible)
